    Default Small chip by USB connector port

    Anyone else have this? I noticed it a few days ago, and I gentle as all heck with putting it in and taking it out (the USB Connector that is). Also while watching one of the review videos, it looked like his model had it also.

    Using the cable that came in the box, it looks one of the points on the end of the cable wore it down to a chip (possibly a misaligned plug on the phone itself causing the metal clip to rub against it when inserting?)

    I think you have it set to private, we can't access it.

    Huh, that definitely looks like the USB caused it, especially if you tell us a review has it too.
    This picture doesn't seem to have it.

    yeah I dont know..as I said I put it in there gently and last time I watched closely as I slid the plug it..one of the metal prongs on the top of the USB connector (right side) seems to slide along the chip..as if it made a "groove" in the plastic

    Ouch. Makes me question the integrity of the plastic in general.

    since i got my One, i've thought the placement of the 3.5mm headphone jack was odd. why put it 7/8 in the white plastic and 1/8 in the aluminum casing? seems more logical to center it in the plastic to avoid any sort of chipping or off-setting of the metal > plastic seal.

    Worst that can happen is that they say no.
    But keep in mind. if you have:
    -Good Speakers with zero crackle
    -Solid Gappless build
    -No dead pixels
    Is the little chip worth it?

    Well my speakers are good...small gaps on top and bottom but those gaps alone won't make me exchange it ..and pixels are fine..I've got a few days yet

    Quite frankly, my biggest concern would be the screen. If you have no dead pixels I wouldn't even think about if for that chip.

    Its hard man. With my s3 or note 2 I could care less....but this device is so nice, I would hate to get a nick or scratch. I feel your pain
    Sent from my amazingly sexy HTC One.
    P.S. Just because I love my HTC One doesn't mean I hate the S4. I understand why you love it, I just love mine more.
