Default M7 RED went for HTC repair - should i worry?

Hi
yesterday i sent my htc M7 for a repair after the motherboard died or something like that.
the phone just stopped working , will not turn on or charge with no reason, 2 months old, bought it in January and few days ago stopped working at all.

so the guys at the lab told me it needed a new board - which mean they will need to totally open it.

the main question is - do you think the phone will return a fully and scratchless?
i kept mine totally clean from scratches or dents - i even took pictures of it before sending it.

from what i know its almost impossible to fix it without ruining something els..thats what im afraid of.
mine is in RED color - and in Israel they sell only the Silver (got mine from a store that got it from Malaysa).

did anyone experienced any trouble with HTC technical support?

Thank you.

My red One went for a camera repair. They sent it in a better condition than what I sent it in
They had polished it, etc.
No, they're experts in this. The phone ideally wont be damaged by HTC Service Centre

They have a special machine that opens these phones without damaging it. Apparently. Personally, I believe that they just send you a new phone because mine came back with a different IMEI number for a problem that had nothing to do with the motherboard.

Like the guy above me said, they have a tool to open it. Plus it's HTC, not the repair shop down the street. I would trust that they take the utmost care in fixing your product. Any company is supposed to do that. They made the phone, they can disassemble it with ease. You're worried because you saw these stupid people who try to disassemble their phones in ridiculous ways. They have a tool, dint worry
