Have to say mine is a week old and hasn't shown any sort of wear as yet, and this is in jeans and my work trousers. Not sure what the hell happened to the other guys case!

anyway, it was free so even if it does start to show wear I'm not that bothered

I have other friends/colleagues, who have the same problem. It is up to you, if you believe or not. I just wanted to warn other users, who wants to pay for this crap.

I'm sorry to disappoint but my case starts wearing off on the edges too. I only wear jeans and not the tightest ones at that. I never dropped my Phone and i do not have a car. Hence i didn't even leave the phone and case in bright sunlight to heat up or something.

The case was included in the box for me, as a temporary case, it's fine, but I'd strongly suggest buying a different case if you're going to order one.

I, myself, have ordered a Dot View case, but I'd suggest getting a Spigen or something if you're ordering one.

Here's mine, been in use for a since 27/4, I usually take care of my devices so I'm not sure how it was scratched this much, but that shows how scratch prone it is:

- The ruber looks already worn just from putting in my jeans pocket.

Not recommended by any means

I've had mine as long as you have and... what the heck do you do with your device? Either your jeans are too tight and caused all that scuffing or you're doing something else with it because mine looks pretty much the same as it did the day I got it -- and the flap still closes properly.

I've got it on my M8, and its scratched, port covers doesn't close properly, and doesn't slide in and out of pockets very well. Good for a case that comes with the phone but wouldn't recommend buying it if you didn't get it with your phone.

I was rubbing the case against a rock, the only thing i had in mind was to make HTC look bad. You got me, dude! wow...

Anyway, i am using dot view cover now. THAT is indeed something, i can recommend to protect your device. It is a little uncomortable to write with 2 hands though...
