    HTC Support said I could send it in and get a quote. That's not happening.

    This happened to me on the original EVO. They changed the design for the EVO LTE so I didn't have a problem there. It's disappointing HTC went back to using shoddy glue again with the M8.

    I've had my M8 close to 2 months with a lot of use sliding it in and out of pocket with no case and the HTC logo on the back is as bold as the day I unboxed it.

    Oh I have the gun metal version by the way.

    This happened to the M7 too. It's due to using a cheap glue for the letters instead of engraving them.

    I would probably want to take all the letters out and get it clean from glue or anything and i bet it would look good.

    Mine started peeling off today as well. I contacted htc via chat and they told me it wasnt a common issue and they couldnt do anything. But it looks to be like one... kinda ticked..

    I'm considering removing all of mine and just leaving them out. I sort of like the engraved look better anyway. I'll likely be using the dot view case soon, though, so it doesn't matter too much.

    My " C " fell off also... I was laughing...

    First camera lense is scratchable by feathers. Almost.

    Now the C fell off.

    I come from an iPhone 5. Which was perfect since launch day.

    Not impressed.

    I didn't know they peeled off either.. though it would be pretty cool to leave them out, get something like this > Performix® Plasti-Dip Multipurpose Rubber Coating - Specialty Paints - Ace Hardware and filled the gaps. Red or blue would be pretty sweet in there I think.
    If I get this phone, I'd be half tempted to purposely peel the letters off to do just that even if they aren't peeling on their own. Only question is how well it'd stay in place.

    I guess if its prepped good it would never come off.. just pick a color you really like.

    This just happened to me yesterday when I was on a bus, and I lost the letter cause obviously the space wasn't ideal to look for it.

    Do they at least sell a replacement sticker? this damn glue is just ugh.... freaking me out

    Aaand as you can see the "T" looks like it's on the way there.. lol

    I'm not in the US, so ya it's gonna be all fun to send it back, so if anyone knows some workaround would be great.

    Yeah it looks really unfinished underneath. I'm glad it's on the back.

    Wow. I would go berserk lol.

    From a company like HTC you would think they would replace a phone with such an issue.

    lol I've heard some people who got it replaced when they insisted but the thing is I'm not in the US so I'd have to send it and that's a lot of work for some stickers so I didn't bother much and removed them all, doesn't looks bad that way either

    Neither do I live in the US. But HTC ain't a US located company. So I gues they need to send it out as well.

    I would just demand a New phone. You just paid big money for a phone tho.

    Hello, my case is even stranger! The T and the C is fine, but the H is melting off... And i don't mean the glue melting and the H falling out, the plastic that the H is made out off has literally turned to jelly and it wears away when i brush my finger over it. All i can think is it must have come into contact with a weird cleaning chemical or something, unless it got really hot when it was charging?

    More than likely, the letter itself is already gone, and you are just feeling the melted adhesive underneath.

    I went ahead and just took all my letters off. It's cooler that way, anyway.

    Mine peeled within the first month and looked like OP's pic. Took a fine tipped paint brush and painted myself. Looks ok.
