You're right

I own the international version of the HTC one X (it's polycarbonate unibody is freaking strong).
By the time I wrote this above I hadn't carefully checked the GSIII... I just figured out that the removable battery cover is just too flimsy.
I got to put my hands on an Iphone 5 just yesterday.
It is an strong phone. You can tell it is an iphone because it looks a lot like the other previous 5 iphones...
But the feel to it is totally different.
It's a tough phone. Uses little plastics, mostly metal for the body; and glass; is just to be found where it belongs, on the screen.

Still, I think that the oneX is less prone to get scratched because the polycarbonate unibody will take a bit more abuse.
However, now I can tell. It is true that you'll easily dent or scratch the beautiful iphone's chassis… However your phone will be in one piece by the time you finish your 2 year tier with the phone company.
I have to admit, that phone can take a grenade and survive.

P.D: Just in case.
Yes, the metal body of the iphone is prone to get dented when dropped and it will be noticeable. But the phone’s beautiful, you wouldn’t drop it just because; take my word.
