All I can say is what I observed in my own family. I use a blackberry for a year or two, get a new one, and hand down the old one to my wife. They look still new out of the box, almost, when I give one to my wife. But after a year the finish on the keys is scuffed and scratched. Maybe the appearance of wear and tear somehow is slow to appear and then happens all the sudden. I don't know. But it is the same with wife and daughter, though daughter is tough on phones, too.

However, keep in mind these things don't last forever, and you will want to get a new one sometime in the next two to three (or four) years probably at most. My opinion is you want it to keep working that long and if it shows battle scars, so what. Just my opinion.
