    I am using a flip case for the phone, so it is protected from wear caused by jeans and so on.

    Same here, for no more than a month after I bought the phone. Awful, but now I've got a case. NEVER BUY WINDOWS PHONE.

    The problem is not with Windows Phone, but HTC's manufacturing process.

    This is a typical problem with HTC phones. Someone just the other day was discussing it happening to his 8X in that forum. Stories about this make me so glad I didn't jump on the HTC bandwagon and that I stuck with Nokia, which has been so trusty and reliable for me over the years.

    Sigh, its like saying "I'lll never buy Windows XP/Vista/7/8 because my Samsung/Acer/Asus/Lenovo/HP/Dell laptop underperforms and hangs every 2 minutes."

    Really?

    The average consumer likes to throw rocks instantly when something doesn't work according to plan. I really don't see the connection between Windows Phone and the peeling paint on the 8S.

    Why you dissing on the OS? Its not MSFT's fault you bought your phone from a company thats known for selling cheap ^&%^.

    I am happy that Nokia chose polycarbonate.

    HTC used polycarbonate as well for the 8s and 8x but it has a soft rubber coating on top, and that is pealing off apparently, but i don't have any issues with mine. I am using a flip case and it looks brand new, no scratches or dents.

    My "Domino" (black/white) 8S is now almost 6 months old, has never been kept in a case and still looks brand new, despite having been dropped a few times and spending hours a day in my pocket or in my panniers. What colours are others having problems with? I was thinking of getting a grey/green one as a back-up as they are going for $198 at the moment but if it is going to peel, I'll give it a miss.

    What's your problem? It's HTC's fault not Microsoft.

    Nokia peels as well although technicians told us that it's not normal and should be taken to Nokia Care
