Hi,

I own a Note3 for about 6 months and the chrome plating around the bezel is all worn out and flaking already. I never dropped the phone and I am always very careful with my stuff. For example my Galaxy S with 4 years of use doesn't have a single scratch and the finishing is "as new"

I would like to know what's the opinion out there on the cosmetics quality, I think the phone is great but the hardware, at least in my unit, is not up to scratch.

Do Samsung take care of this? anyone seeing it can tell that the phone hasn't been misused

I have mine for almost 9 months now. The rim looks good as news as well as the whole body, no visible scratch. I use it as it is, without a case. I only have a glass screen protector. I do get mindful where I place my phone though.

As said, this is the first time I have problems with electroplated plastic. I'm usually very careful with my things. I don't use hand sanitizer nor I am a sweaty person.

Well, maybe I just got a lemon

Im not really agree on the OP of that link thread. Basically the OP only try to make the plate look great. Not really fix it.
