Now that the 6p has been out for awhile, I was just wondering how the phone looks if it is used naked without a case, in particular the graphite version. Does the aluminum show through the graphite after awhile ?

Aluminum I assume would hide scratches better since it is metallic silver. I like the graphite, but I'm concerned eventually it will have the color scratch through. Just wondering.

Mine always in a case. No scratches except around the USB-C port.
All water under the bridge now. If you order from Google you need to order a Pixel.

I figured most ppl have theirs in the case. I would get a nexus 6p from some other seller but I don't intend on using a case though. Just wondering if anyone had any scratch through the black issues. If I can't find out definitively I might just get the silver one.....id hate to buy the graphite then have the silver base aluminum scuff through after 6 months.
