    Are any of you experiencing the "dirty/discolored" corner issues that seem to be plaguing some of the blue models?

    Is the discoloration even noticeable on the black model?

    Have had my black 8x since 11/15 and it is showing no signs of wear-and-tear on the screen or body. (knock on wood)

    I wonder if the discoloration issue is limited to a bad batch of blue models?

    It probably shows up more with a color. I wonder if any of the other colors are showing this?

    Same here. Nothing whatsoever. Despite the relatively low amount of media coverage the black 8X gets, it is gorgeous! Granted, I would prefer a sexy red, but the black is nice!!!

    Yep, mine is fine. I assumed this was only an issue for colored models. Does anyone know if the Nokia phones are having the same issue?

    I can't say about mine because I ordered an HTC Doubleshot Hard Shell in Blue along with my phone and I've been using it with that case since I received both items.

    Black devices still holding up well to wear and tear? Any signs of the soft touch coating rubbing off or discoloring?

    I ended up sending my blue one back due to discoloration. I replaced it with a black one.

    the plastic underneath busted through the rubber on one corner on my black 8x. not sure the cause, just saw it in the morning after waking up. was not dropped or scratched or anything. it's always in my front pants pocket, I was doing some work on the floor in my house in the days prior perhaps there was enough friction to stretch it in one spot. the rubber layer is VERY thin.
