suddenly one day my Gear looked like this, i have no idea what it can be. It still works fine.
The scratches are from my fingernails after it became like this.

Damaged battery? (still works)
Sunnlight?

will my warranty cover this?
help appreciated!

It looks like it was laid down in a puddle of something. Like a chemical melted the plastic. Acetone type fluid.

I don't think that's covered under warranty unless it's battery acid from internal leakage. It wouldn't be working if it was that.
