Putting the new iPhones through scratch test is one of the many rituals whenever a new iPhone is launched. The same is done with the recently leaked Gold/Champagne iPhone 5S outer shell and it’s scratch tested against iPhone 5 black. Below you can find a video showing gold iPhone 5S vs. iPhone 5 scratch test.
Folks over at JailbreakNation have managed to get their hands on the gold iPhone 5S outer shell and have put it on a scratch test against iPhone 5. Here’s what they found:
Here you can see us test the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 with coins (as you might find in your pocket), and we decided to take it to the extreme just to see how much damage we could do between the two devices with a knife. The scratches caused by the coin did virtually no damage to the gold iPhone 5S while they caused quite a problem with the black iPhone 5. Because of the materials underneath the black version shows obvious holes in the paint that look terrible, this however was not the case with the iPhone 5S. When it came to the knife test overall the damage looks worse on the gold iPhone 5S. This is because the long marks and deep scratches are more visible with the gold background. The iPhone 5 black shows practically nothing other than the parts where the silver underneath shows.
