Anyone else having this issue? (pic)



The little metal "foot" on the back of the screen designed to keep the keyboard from getting mashed is chipping the paint away from where the plastic seam is. the clear protector is also visibly worn the entire path the foot travels and is starting to get damaged as well. This is after only a few weeks' use.

My theory is that there is enough play in the phone's hinge, especially at this end of the phone to allow that little metal foot to basically work its way into the seam. This isn't good.

Should I ask Sprint about it? At the rate this is happening, the corner won't have any paint on it or may even chip off in a few months. Crap

Re: Anyone else having this issue? (pic)

those strips are meant to come off, and your right, there is a little metal thing that hangs down on both sides scratching it as you slide it back n forth.........the side that holds the hing and screen together..

I'm not so sure they're meant to come off. The seem to be protecting the keyboard shroud. Does the instructions say to take them off?

Add some lube, maybe that would help.

Other than that, I honestly wouldn't sweat something like this. The device is going to go through wear and tear. Once you knick it up a bit more things l ike this aren't really going to matter.

The plastic is just for shipping, just like what was on the screen when you received it. I have the nick on my corner like that ... seems to be normal wear. Once it is at a certain point I doubt it will get worse or have the corner fall off. Normal wear.

That plastic seems to be secured by adhesive and is of the screen-protector type. I don't buy that it's supposed to come off. It appears to be scratch protection from those metal feet.

Re: Anyone else having this issue? (pic)

The plastic is most certainly meant to come off. It cracks me up every time I hear someone say otherwise. Now if you WISH to keep them on for protection, that's perfectly fine and may well work but it wasnt the intention.

Why on earth would a manufacturer design a product that scratches itself without a delicate, removable piece of packing plastic to stop it? That's just silly, seriously. If it was there for that purpose they would tell you and give you extras or perhaps... just perhaps, come up with a better design.

I'd normally agree with you, but that is actually a paint chip that happened within a week of me having the phone and it has only gotten worse. I could see it as a catalyst for the entire corner to lose its paint.
