It still leaves the original question open. Unless HTC issues a press release claiming that they have found the fault in the process and that all phones made after dd/mm are just fine and can be used to oben beer bottles without damaging the surface you don't know if the phone you get is good or not, even if you can pinpoint the exact Date of Manufacturing.

Seeing as they are just about now starting to acnowledge the problem, I would say it is safe to assume that phones with a mfg. date up until the first week of April will be prone to the problem AT LEAST. Possibly even longer, until it is fixed. So SH/HT24x (where x is a number) phones should IMO still be avoided, and even if they catch up n the problem RIGHT NOW it will prolly take a month or so until those made after today /which would be HT/SH24B) make it to european stores. Or am I wrong here?

The formatting re: the S/N is an interesting note though, thanks for that. For the record, mine is HT23R (so from what i gather 2012, Month 3, Day 24)

Quote:
The new format will read similar to HT[year][month][day]. I presume that they wish to be this precise for warranty purposes.

The month format shall be between 1 - 12, but the day format will take a slightly different shape.

Days will go from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N, P, R, S, T, V, W, X, Y, Z. Day Z represents day 31.
Took the liberty to copypaste from the linked thread for esier reference.

To those who does not have problems, what about around the USB port? I plugged in USB maybe 3 times very carefully and there is already alluminium visible. On the top after 2 day in the pocket its ok.

If it's similar to the HTC Desire/Nexus One's build, I'd be more than happy with that. It was still the best phone I'd ever owned (for its time).

DONATE TO ME
As mentioned above, it would take at least a month for HTC to fix the issue and push out new improved phones. So I'm thinking if either getting the One S now, then return it for a new one. But I should probably just wait.....

According to HTC, you are free to return your phone for a new one directly with them (and not your local retailer) during the warranty period. So you're free to buy an One S today and ask for an exchange in 6 months if you have any trouble later

Lightbulb surface flaw, no scratch

Have been at a surveyor. He told me this are doubtless no scratches. And indeed I did not drop my phone. On the pictures they took you can clearly see that there are no scratches aroud the affected area, which should be there if I dropped the phone.. What I think is the my reseller will tell me I am stupid if I show those very little flaws to him
Let's hope for HTC

Was the surveyor able to deduct anything else besides confirmation these are no ordinary scratches?
Interesting pictures by the way
