    I do think it is almost impossible to get around. If you are going to be adamant about not putting any kind of case around the phone at all then ultimately whether today, tomorrow, next day next month next year if you use a "mobile device" you will expose it to the possibility of damage no matter how over the top cautious you are or you might think you are. The only thing that bothers me about this kind of incident is that some, not all but some, of the folks that appear most adamant about the running naked thing also turn out to be the most damning of Sammy or any other phone maker when their phone finally does get damaged. Even a thin case or a skin would likely protect the housing from scratches.

    I suspect if you asked a designer honestly what mechanical or physical spec he is designing these things to, he will tell you he is designing his mobile device to keep on ticking if it takes a hit. I will bet you anything that he does not give a rats behind about surface damage...just doesn't care and frankly, I don't blame him.

    There's your problem. Don't CALL them if you can avoid it. Take it to a store. Reps are much better there, with a few exceptions (one store in my area seems to have a knack for hiring morons and have for years).
    They told me no and I have to call them.... Lmao

    When I was in High School, my Buddy got a white Chevrolet Prizm. One day, I noticed the front bumper was almost entirely ripped off like he had clipped something and bent it backwards. For days he insisted and even angrily demanded that he had done nothing to cause it, and it must have been his little brother or maybe his parents. One day, I was standing on the grass next to his driveway so he could backout of the garage (the garage was too narrow for passengers to climb in) and he cranked the wheel to miss his dads truck which was ALWAYS parked behind him. When he did, the front end of his car (the bumper) caught the wall where the garage door attaches, and bent back his bumper. The case had been solved, and he had lied about never doing it. That was a hilarious day for me and my other buddy who witnessed the whole thing. I just share that story because it's on my mind.

    I don't use cases.... And it can be the delivery guy because it sure wasn't me
    As such, I suggest you use a case for max protection & to prevent further scratches in the near future otherwise you'll be really disappointed. Always presume worst case scenario. It happened already & it will happen again. It's just a matter of time. :-)

    Mine has a chip along the inner aluminum top left. Right out of the box, but it's not enough to make me send it back at this point. The scratching of this material will happen eventually.

    Like how you guys all abuse the OP and call him a liar. Fact is he's not lying. The polished metal chamfered edges are a scratch nightmare waiting to happen.The slightest bump on anything that is harder than the metal used on the note 4 will scratch this surface; and since this is pretty soft metal on the Note 4, almost anything can scratch it! I'm appalled Samsung chose to go this route with the metal accent. It looks pretty but it is not durable. And if you think a case is going to protect it, think again. The cases out there will allow specks of dust to get in and settle around the metal edges of the phone. Taking the case on and off will eventually take it's toll on those pretty chamfered edges. Mark my words. Best you can do is protect the phone from a catastrophic fall or accident. But those tiny scratches are going to appear. Just wait a month or two.

    Are you entirely sure it's s chip? When I was picking mine up I noticed what appeared to be a chip as well. Upon close inspection it was not a chip at all but some kind of spot where I guess the antenna can receive signal through the metal band. Really looking close I can see a few places where this is the case and it's uniform.

    That right there is all the rest of us are trying to get OP to understand. We're only giving him a hard time because he wont even admit to possibly doing that much. In one post he says it's super easy to scratch, and also that he didn't scratch it. If it's SO easy to scratch, it would be impossible not only for him to not have done SOMETHING to scratch it, but the rest of us would have the same scratches.

    My Verizon pre-order came with a chip in the lower right hand corner. And it was a chip. I also preordered from BB and that one didn't have an issue. I keep my phone in a leather pouch, without a case. I like seeing the big Verizon logo on the back of my phone..lol. Bought the phone full retail so I wasnt going to take a chip in the phone.

    I got mine yesterday from BB. It had a very small scratch in the lower left corner on the inner metal band closest to the screen. It also had a light and small scratch on the chamfered edge above the charging port. I noticed all this before even taking the phone home. It wasn't enough to worry about or demand an exchange.

    I went over to the VZ store and compared it to the unit they had on display that they just put out. It had scratches in similar places. One big difference: my screen is brighter and whiter looking at the same display setting than the VZ floor model! I cant believe there is such a discrepancy between different units of the same model! It made it easier to swallow the small imperfections my unit has because I think its screen looks noticeably better than the other units I saw at VZ.

    I just got my replacement and directly from opening it I noticed a scratch in the same area. Not sure if my camera will pick it up but it is there so I am not being crazy or "lying" . Had to get it replaced because my phone would just not accept touch at all 2 separate times

    I was so worried that I will scratch my naked phone that I ordered this wallet case on Amazon. I am very excited that when it arrived today I immediately put it on my phone. It fits alright but I decided to removed it because I do not like how it looks on my phone. To my surprise the plastic case left marks on my supposed to be metal frame. I had two marks on the top, at the bottom and two on the sides. This made me upset! I have high expectations on this metal frame. I am so disappointed that a plastic material can ruin it.

    And this is why I don't like using a case. I use a leather pouch. Provides protection, and the phone could stay naked.

    I have been naked for the past two days. In and out of my pocket. In and out of my cup holder in my car. My daughter knocked it off my coffee table. No issues so far. No scratches. No nothing. I think it's fairly durable as of now.
