The grey one S is using anodized aluminium and has no chipping issues.

The black one S has a MAO layer, which has chipping issues, however, HTC quickly fixed it with newer models that had smoother/rounder edges and a bevelled USB port so the chipping didn't happen by itself. Saying that, I have had my one S since April (the first version) and it is still in perfect condition except the edges of the USB port.

AFAIK, the black "one" does not have a MAO finish.

Thank you! I just googled myself and yeah you are right. Only the black version was having the issue and not the grey one. So yes HTC seems to make durable anodized aluminum and apparently HTC One black isn't using MAO black but a real anodized aluminum finish.

My HTC One S scratched when it was first released. It was more of a chipping issue. However they fixed that problem within the coming months. So if they learned from their mistake they should be fine. Only time will tell, but for the sake of beating samsung I hope it doesn't scratch.

Throw a skin on it if you are worried. I have kids so my phone gets pretty rough use. I always use skins and a case.

Re: Will the black model scratch
My EVO-LTE is black aluminum body. No color chipping after almost a year. I have zero scratches, it has been in a case but the exposed parts are scratch free.

I wonder if I can fix the scratches on my One-X with a black marker pen too ...



... and after I retrieved it from the mayhem and got into my other car to drive home, the car radio picked up it's bluetooth signal and it played me music for 15 minutes until the battery finally fried from impact damage. I was even able to read my phone stats on the car radio direct from my ex-One-X
