I really like the black model but am really worried the black will easily scratch of and look horrible. Thoughts?

Of course it will scratch, it would be good if the colour was in the alloy, so that it wouldn't be noticable

You guys should watch this to have a better view of anodization.



It isn't metal plating and isn't like paint where you apply it on top of aluminum.
What we need to worry is if HTC rushes up the process since anodization requires a lengthy amount of time and rushing it would only result to a thinner anodized layer which would result to the likes of the IPhone.


When proper anodization process is done it is very durable to the point that it is almost scratchless.



Look at this n8 scratch test(n8 uses anodized aluminum case also) when he scratched the case with a coin instead of the case getting scratched the coin was the one that got eroded.

Another thing to consider would be HTC's track record so far.
Have they anodised previously?
If so, was it any good?

That would be a good indicator for this model.

If the One S is anything to go by, you're new black phone will look like ****e by the end of the week. My friend has one and the corners and edges were down the silvery alloy in no time. It looks bloody awful like he dropped it.

Solution! Buy a black marker pen. Its like makeup for your crappy HTC phone!

What ar you talking about? Your statement doesn't even make any sense. What does One S have to do with anodized aluminum and HTC One? And what are you talking about your friend having the One already? And it already has scratches and nicks? @.@

Yes but not like a whole phone. They have made an anodized metal on the mytouch 4g slide on the camera rim.



Look at the green on the camera.

When I said my friend has one I was referring to an HTC one s as that is what I was using as an example. Of course he doesn't have an HTC one as it has not been released yet. What has the "HTC one s" got to do with it? It also had the anodized aluminum and looks like a right mess after a couple of weeks. Google it.

Calm down dear.. it's only a phone!
