Last week i've noticed some cracks in the housing of my Arc I did no drop it or anything and i keep it in a hardened leather case when i'm not using it.

The cracks apear arround the black sensor at the left to the ear speaker(is this the light sensor?) and arround the volume buttons on the right.

I've did some searching on the net and found a few other people on the dutch GOT forum with the same cracks on the Arc. Anyone on XDA got these problems?

Saw someone on the dutch SE FB page with the same problem. He was told to go to a phoneshop to have it checked

Could it be related to the Heating problem? My arc does get rather warm up there when playing games for a while.

I have the same problem above the light sensor just a little bit to the right of the center! Can it be because when you put it in your pocket? And no flex?

Wtf? Same here. Next to the sensor.

They're very small and hard to notice atm, but I'm going to keep an eye on this.

Oh, so do I.

Unless it gets worse, I'm not bothered to be honest though.

Mine is not like that. I have 3, but they are smaller and less noticeable.
