Last month HTC spoke quite highly of their micro-arc oxidation process that they used on the HTC One S. The whole process explained, sounded very interesting. You can read more and see a video from the HTC YouTube channel by checking out our previous article on the specifics of this process HTC used, including claims that you wouldn’t even need a case for your beloved Android device.
Well there looks to be a turn of events a month later. This process HTC was bragging about in March may actually not be so great, and they may have to make some improvements. Based on some photos provided by XDA members enlan and robban87, there could be a real issue. To follow were replies from a number of other members of the well-known developer forum, claiming that they never dropped their HTC One S and they are seeing this same defect in this process that HTC claims to be 3x stronger than steel.
Although we haven’t found any reply from HTC on this, but hopefully we will. If you or someone you know has an HTC One S, comment below and tell us if you’re seeing similar signs of unnatural wear on your new device.
