I just wonder is this just the protective layer of paint or some coating that I should peel off, any other user's experience the same ?
i have reported to HTC, waiting for reply... But I m not in the country that I ve bought the phone now... I wonder can I swap it like 6 months later if it's manufacturing defect.
I got a reply from HTC:
According to the picture you provide, there should be slight appearance abrase in the button. Taking of this small layer of plastic would not affect the function of the phone. you may either leave it as it is or take it off. Thank you for your cooperation.
I follow HTC instruction and peel/scratch away the coating of the HOME button only with finger nails.
The metallic effect's gone, and become just a normal black plastic key.
There are lots of micro lines on the button which cannot be seen on the photo.
It is still acceptable, just that I m not happy about a flag ship device's paint/coating came off so easily.
These are the photos
The button actually look nice without the coating in the photo comparing with the one next to it which the coating is coming off.
I m thinking should/can I ask for buttons replacement, or it is just a waste of time cos those buttons coating will eventually come off after excessive use.
i still love my HD2 , just a bit sad about so many problems
i got HTC reply, nothing much they can help since I m not in Hong Kong.
Anyway, the girl from HTC said there was no one complain about the key's paint coming off.... I just wonder can those people who 's got problem and voted yes, would you mind at least send a complain letter to HTC please.
