    Default Is your top or bottom bezel piece is peeling off?

    Had to return mine because the metal bezel above and below the screen is peeling off from the right side of the phone. It's poorly glued on. If you can feel it slightly raised up them chances are it will peel off. I had the t mobile version of the phone.

    Do you mean the speaker grills?

    My screen doesn't sit entirely flush; there's spots where the screen sits below the metal bezel and an inch to the left it sits above the metal bezel. Definitely swapping it out.

    The speaker grills top and bottom are made to be removed. This is how the case is taken apart. These plastic covers are glued on with double faced tape so you can gain access to the screws on the other side. A tiny dab of super glue near the corner's will fix it just fine.

    Mine are not lifting up yet, but my lower speaker cover in particular, looks like it is rippled/warped.....It is not a flat piece of metal like it should be.

    They aren't metal, they're plastic.

    Oh ok....Thanks....I guess mine was glued down with a couple of pronounced "dented" looking areas.

    I'll just wait until there are replacement parts available.

    Could you please post pictures in the future? Impossible to know if we have the same problem without seeing yours?

    I had to exchange my first m8 because the top speaker grill was coming unglued on the right side. I kept pushing it down, but it would slowly work its way back up.

    Yeah. They are poorly glued on. Not sure why they changed it from the m7 because I didn't hear of anyone having that issue with the first one

    The top is where mine started to 'peel' or 'dent.' It is DEFINITELY beneath the screen. Took to my Verizon store and they verified it wasn't damaged from dropping or water invasion.

    Here is close up. You can see it moves around the speaker and the FF camera and is now creeping around the edges.

    Here you can see the 'dent' look some have referred to.

    Yes yes yes! I have been noticing dust or dirt under my front camera lens and didn't know why. Today I was rubbing my finger across screen and felt the top bezel was sticking up wayyy too much. So I didn't think nothing about it and I pushed it down. Now it seems fine but I wish I would've raised it more and blew the dust out.

    Now I can't get the dust out because the bezel is completely flush.

    What should I do? I'm still under my 30 day return policy.

    Mine is off from the right corner on the top. I have exceeded the 14 days of return policy of At&t and to be honest I have return 2 before for poor build quality. What do I do?? I live the phone so much but the build quality is a downside of it

    1) put up with it
    2) get something else until forums report higher success rate
    3) get something else and then keep using it
    4) for your next trick (since out of exchange) get a carrier buyout phone swap

    Someone mentioned how they glued their's. I would call HTC first and see if they can do something about it.

    Finally I called at&t and explained everything to them and they said they will send a new one for me. Hope this new one will be better

    Same with mine...glue let go on top bezel to right of camera. After the 30days. My only option in Canada is to send it back to HTC for repair. I saw the teardown on ifixit and it doesn't look like there is a lot for it to stick onto on the side of the bezel at the top. I might just remove it and restick it or live with it.
