Reports surface of HTC One S ceramic coating easily chipping off


Just a day after some users reported a possible design flaw in the screen of the HTC One X, reports have started surfacing that other users who own the HTC One S are experiencing potential problems with the device's ceramic coating. More specifically, it seems as if it is chipping off a bit too easily around the device's rim, even when these same users are reporting that they have been babying their devices since they got them.

HTC has responded to these claims by stating:

HTC is committed to delivering a high quality product and great experience for all our customers. There have been a few, isolated reports of this issue. The finish on the One S was laboratory tested as being at a hardness similar to ceramic. While that’s hard, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible to damage. Regardless, HTC takes quality very seriously and are providing all customers with an immediate fix and we are implementing some small changes to ensure customers do not experience this issue in the future.

Hopefully, this is not a widespread issue that will affect all HTC One S owners. But in any case, it looks like HTC is recognizing the issue and taking quick steps to fix it, which is something not all manufacturers can say.
