Don't think the Micro Arc protects from drops.

Guys,

When I first read this I thought the same thing that the device had been dropped... however I have just looked closely at my own device and the same thing is happening on the sharp edge on the left hand side

My device has NOT been dropped or mistreated in any way.

DONATE TO ME
"It features aircraft 6,000 series aluminum which is treated with micro arc oxidation by blasting it with 10,000 volts of energy. This gives the metal a ceramic feel and causes it to become five times harder (thatís three times stronger than stainless steel).

The shell of the HTC One S is so durable that HTC claims that it does not even need a protective case. "

The shown devices were not droped. A lot of the One S look like this after one week of safely carrying . Belive me, your devices will show the same failure in approxamitly one or two weeks.

It looks like the brittle ceramic skin can't hold on to the flexible aluminum. Like I said major problem with the production technology.

The nice words of HTC are advertising words.
I am not surprised of the problem and I think it to be idiotic to have such a sharp edge. What else can you expect?

Is there anyone else who experiences the same thing?

Damn.. I really wanted the One S. Yet If the ceramic back is this easily damaged without dropping.. I might not get it. I hate cases.
