    Seriously?

    My volume rocker silver paint is chipping off. I haven't dropped it, thrown it, or put it anywhere precarious. Anyone else notice theirs is chipping?

    No, but the gold paint on my Droid 1's camera button, and the red paint on my Droid X's camera button both came off as well.

    Gold came off on mine too, but not as quickly as some other people. This had been two Weeks, use some better quality paint.....

    No but the verizon logo on front has started to wear off. I keep my phone in my pocket with no case. Doesn't bother me though, just saying.

    Add me to the list of former OG Droid owners with a white camera button (the color after the gold peeled off). But no issues with the BIONIC.

    They think bling is beautiful. Personally, I think black is beautiful. I agree, just make the darn thing black and have no paint to chip, peel, fade, etc.

    I read over on XDA that if you take a penny and lightly scratch the logo off it is a clean remove with no scratches. Maybe just finish'r off!

    The only thing people use Pennies for anymore, scratching things off..... Like instant lottery tickets.
