Apple Senior Marketing VP Phil Schiller has apparently responded to a user complaint about scratches and chips experienced by iPhone 5 users.

In an email exchange with a user who complained about scuffs and scratches on his new black iPhone 5, Schiller said scuffs, marks and scratches on the new phone are quite natural, due to the phone’s build.
