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.
Same here, this could be the only reason why I won't buy this phone. I never use cases because it makes the phone ugly imo. And I don't know if I want the grey version..

LOL...i noticed some spots up there too after reading this thread and was concerned at first but the white marks could be "rubbed-away" like the marks from fingernails on the back which was shown in a lot of videos ... just try it.

hey, they use this stuff for satelites...

How bad is this problem? Do more people experience it?
Also, does it happen to the blue version as well? Otherwise I might change my pre-order to that..

The blue one got another treatment. There is no ceramic surface which can come off.

There is no way to rub the damage away. The Oxidation to Al2O3 happens only under high temperatures. If the ceramic skin can't hold on the the aluminum it will be damaged permanently

Wow. This is making me reconsider my choice. Got a One S due for delivery tomorrow and might be tempted to send it straight back either for the grey one or for the One X having seen this.

So if any One S user reads this, could he/she share some experiences with the ceramic surface? Even if you do not have any problems at all. It would be nice to find out if this is just a bad product, or a common problem..

DONATE TO ME
I've had mine a few days and not dropped it or anything, it seems to have started on mine though. If it gets any worse over the next couple of days I'll have to take it back, not sure what to do though as I love the phone and don't like it as much in grey/blue

Anybody contacted HTC about this yet?
