Told someone I would take pictures of the fraying on the Ballistic Nylon model. I'll jst start a fresh thread about it. My phone was dropped once, about 2 feet, but 2 of these frays were there before that. The bigger one and the one next to it. The drop didn't cause the fray, but I'm just mentioning that I dropped it for full disclosure. No it's not very visible but you can feel it which drives me nuts. This is the first time I've seen the 3rd one. The 1st is now bigger. Apparently happened while in my sleeve?!?!? Horrible material... /Sidenote/ Love my DSLR. Still no phone that can replace it.
