What iPhone 5 should I get ?

Hi guys, I am getting an iPhone 5 for christmas. I really wanted the black one but I fear getting it because of scuffgate. My mum is travelling to the US(I live in Africa) and will buy it for me so I cannot risk getting one then sending it back to the store. I was just wondering if the black iPhone 5s still have the scuffing problems or its safe for me to get one. Thanks
