Shiny Dell logo on Streak battery cover could fall off

Streak-back-logoHow's that shiny silver logo on your Dell Streak's battery cover holding up?

Mine is still scratch-free and showing absolutely no signs of wear, but based on what I've read over at the MoDaCo forums, some of yours may not be in mint condition anymore.

Apparently, the only thing keeping the Dell logo and battery cover together is some cheap glue that doesn't seem to be doing its job very well. Whether it's the circle outline, the final "L," or even the entire logo, some users are reporting that pieces of the silver emblem are peeling/falling off in hot weather, warm pockets, and even from just plain old regular use.

Not all Streaks are affected by this, as I live in Hawaii (where it's currently 81 degrees), have applied and peeled off adhesive vinyl skins, and usually keep my Streak laying caseless on its back, but it might be something you want to check on every now and then.

I don't know if Dell would actually send you a new battery cover if the logo fell off, though I suppose for marketing/branding purposes, they definitely should!

    Mine came off, when i bought it, because the anti theft device the store attached to the streak pulled it clear off . .

  • I just tried to scratch it off and the “L” moved.
    I don’t really care if the Dell logo is on the back so if it comes off oh well.

    I don’t mind branding onw way or the other, but it should not be done like this . . not that cheap.

    Mine started to come off when peeling off the invisible shield. I was able to save it by sticking it back on.

    Mine is inside an otterbox defender case, so it is somewhat protected.

    Yup, I have a defender case as well, keeps it pretty protected, although its starting to get scratch marks on the right side of the streak, where the home amd back buttons are. =(

  • Wont pulling the streak from the poly case on and off make scratches or scuff marks?

  • Whoops … I just put a sticker over mine yesterday. I’m not a fan of overly big logos plastered on things. I guess the Dell logo is going to peel now if I try to take the sticker off …

  • Wait you can peel that horrendous logo off with a heat gun? That was what was holding me back from a purchase!

  • Mine is fine, but it scratches so easily because the logo is always in contact with whatever you sit it on. Somewhere somebody got a raise for saving money on glue :)

    Only the silvery part.

  • I thought… mine has been fine with lots of use for months…. spoke too soon… last L fell off sometime in last week. If there were no logo, I wouldn’t mind, but part of a logo looks dumb… do I scrape the rest off and put some kind of sticker over it?

  • I actually want another cover with the logo now. I love the logo lol

  • Mine just chipped off when im in my cousins house party!,now its gone! Crapp! Anyone selling the back cover for it?? It looks retarded!

    Reply
  • mine did stay intact untill today, but it seems the glue wasnt only weak to heat but also cold as i had it in my jacket whilst walking a good 50 minutes in ~-15 c.
    butt as said since its punched/embossed in the plastic it actuly looks better as its off…
