    My gold camera button is now half white. Doesn't look that great.

    Since I installed Screen Mode Widget, I've used that button to wake up the phone.

    I am trying to figure out if I care enough to seek a replacement. I'd be trading in my new one for a refurbished one, most likely.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Chip it all off and if you still don't like it, use gold fingernail polish or a paint marker.

    Mine hasn't chipped off yet, but I can see the potential for it to happen. Does anyone have any advice for preventing it, besides using a case? Clear nail polish or something? Maybe that's a bad idea...

    I don't have any chipping on my camera button, but as I understand it, you cannot get a replacement, as this is cosmetic damage.

    I have my droid in a rubberized case and screen protector over the
    glass, no chipping problems and not expecting any.
