I have a fairly large scratch on the rear aluminum on my HTC One M8. I believe it got scratched from my retractable badge lanyard clip as I attach it on to my left pocket where my phone resides. It probably rubbed against the clip, introducing the scratch :/

FWIW, This is my first aluminum unibody phone. All of my past phones (EVO, EVO-3D, SGS3, SGS4) never had a single scratch and never had any protection (cases or screenguards) and still look mint. All of them were plastic however.

surprisingly I went and bought the cheap orignal HTC case that comes with some of the HTC's retailers, its pretty good... i mean its not like otterbox protection or spigen... but it keeps the case very slim and gives u a very good grip in the hand.

each time I put the phone nakud on a table of some sort, I hear that terrible metal sound scratching the surface of the table...
Am I just having a bad OCD or in the long run i will start seeing some heavy blemishes on the phone's body ?

I always dress my phone with good cases. Same as you, I don't want seeing my phone having scratches, dents and blemishes in the future.

case-mate barely there case is great for minimal, the aluminum was too slipery for myself.
This has a nice matte finish to it and add practically no bulk, won't do a whole lot in terms of protection against large drops/bumps, but for small scratches to the back and sides this is great.

I didn't want to put my M8 in a case, but that thing felt like a wet bar of soap in my hand. So I went with this case so I could still see that beautiful brushed aluminum.

Always use hard case. It'll prevent your phone from scratches and all. For sweaty hands. And in case it fell, you have an extra protection. That's why I keep my phone with case all the time.
