The header is self explanatory. I bought this phone 3 weeks ago and the paint around the hinge has already started to peel off. I didn't expect samsung to have done such a horrible paint job on any of their phones let alone their flagship phones.
Sounds strange. It's electroplated on I believe. Seems fine on my phone. I'm sure you have, and without photos I can't be sure. But there are plastic strips on the frame of the phone. If you haven't pealed these off. This could be what's going on They are not the easiest things to see. If it actually is the paint finish. Contact Samsung Customer Support to get it fixed, as clearly a warranty repair
I thought so too. Here is the picture I have taken. Seemed like a blot earlier which I tried to clean and it left a scar instead. You can see the silver surface underneath the paint. Saw a few posts on the Internet beforehand but never thought it could happen without physical damage.
