So I have 2 Nexus 7 2013s and both of them chip at the front around the screen. Both of them have cases on and I just take them out for the occasional cleaning when I removed them. Those chips don't affect me but I just wanted to ask if y'all have had any problems as that area seems vulnerable. The chips aren't that large and cannot be noticed unless lights is shone on it.

I think if I send this in to Asus of would be qualified as user induced damage or normal wear and tear but IMO this is just a flaw in the brittle bezels. My newer unit is bought in march but was manufactured last December with a protector and s-line case which covers the bezels so I do not understand how the knicks were caused.

If anyone can replicate the issue please post below.

Thanks and I would appreciate your reply on this issue.

Thanks.

I have a good bit of scratches on the sides and some chips like you while the rest of the device is perfect. I too find that its very vulnerable to damage

I have resolved my scratches! I used tissue paper and fluoride (NO GEL) toothpaste and rubbed it vigorously against the glossy bezels creating frictional force and the scratches were gone under direct sunlight!
