Been absolutely babying my m8, when I took it out of a very soft gel case I noticed this. Its not a scratch, it won't wipe off, but it bugs the crap out of me. It looked fine till a few days ago. Anyone else seen this?

I'm no Heisenberg, but that looks like some kind of chemical reaction with the aluminium and the soft material and possibly some kind of moisture or humidity. Just my guess.

That is probably the most intelligent reply I could of asked for! You're probably right too! Any idea how to fix it or blend it so it looks better?

A nice skin from Dbrand would do it justice...

Other guesses will probably be better than mine, but what about having held it with fingers that had sun tan lotion (or some other chemical) soaked into them?

Definitely not something like that. I'm just surprised it soaked in / discolored it so permanently.

Oh well. Thanks guys!

Thumbs up warranty!
well i talked to telus a few times and they gave me a new one, letting me keep the old box, charger, etc

never did figure out why the phone discolored, but i'm pretty sure treetolber aka walter white was correct!

just wanted to update so this thread had some closure
