Here's how the Jet Black iPhone 7 finish holds up without a case [Gallery]
Apple's new Jet Black finish on the iPhone 7 has a high gloss look and a glass-like grip that makes it super tempting to use without a case. But Apple correctly warns customers that the shiny surface is prone to ‘micro abrasions' from regular use and recommends using a case to avoid gathering these tiny scratches.I really like using iPhones without a case, however, and the grippy finish makes handling my iPhone 7 Plus noticeably easier. So how well has the Jet Black glossy aluminum held up after more than a week of use without a case?The grip is really awesome. I can shuffle the larger iPhone in my hand to reach parts of the screen easier without feeling like I might drop it. This is a practical benefit of a finish I chose purely for its visual appeal.The high gloss aluminum finish feels remarkably like glass. I'm not sure I could tell the difference between the display and the back casing in a blind test. It also attracts fingerprints just like glass. I'm constantly wiping the back of my iPhone down with my shirt just like I already do for the screen.I notice fingerprints everyday. I have to actually look for micro abrasions. They are there, but only visible in certain lighting.
