    I had the same problem with the Spigen Ultra Capsule TPU and slim fit plastic case.

    I now have the Samsung case, and I hear it won't scratch the phone. I just go the case so will report back in a few weeks.
    Yeah that's the case I currently have (the capsule) I guess you get what you pay for since it was only $10 :/

    My replacement ALSO was scratched right out of the box..... Don't call my valid complaint BS because it isn't! I DONT fumble with chargers and baby my device so don't tell me how I treat my phone because I guarantee I DIDN'T SCRATCH IT

    It is also scratched in the SAME AREA
    Mine also has a scratch right out of the box. It takes a magnifying glass to see it but it is there.

    Also looks like a little paint chipping around one of the mic holes.

    I saw a video on YouTube where a guy says this is just thin chrome plating and not aluminum on these shiny edges.

    The note 4 scratches easily when u plugging it in.. If u change cases frequently... I noticed this... I had the galaxy S3 s4 and S5 none of those scratched as easily as the note 4....a few ppl I know have the note 4...all going through same issues... Nevertheless it's a gd device!!!

    My brother used a cheap swap meet case that was hard plastic and it scratched the plastic on his s4. Stay away from hard cases that don't use a polyurethane or soft gel like material on the inside.

    Why would anyone want plastic on a phone over metal?

    I have the same problem though with scratching. But mine didn't magically get scratched. It's because the smallest dirt and grit get in the case. I used the spigen neo hybrid which isn't that good of a case for the cost.

    Still the phone is amazing and this kind of thing is to be expected on a phone. Remember it's just a phone and if it doesn't get small scratches then it's going to be another problem. The nexus 6 is metal too and it's quite a bit thicker. Even though they both share the same hardware, note 4 is way better because it's nicer looking, thinner and has more features. The only thing the nexus has over the note is 2 speakers but if I want to blast my music I'll use a portable speaker.

    So a little chrome polish on a q-tip should do the trick....

    To say I am disappointed with them(Samsung) using metal is an understatement. Already scratched the bottom of my phone slightly and never had anything in my pocket other then my phone and it wasn't even a tight pocket

    I can totally understand what you're saying, I'm having the same issues unfortunately. The metal does scratch very easily and I must say I have taken very good care of it, I know I have. Note 4 is almost perfect, except the quality of the design, specifically the metal frame. Get a strong rubber plastic cover, rather than a hard/metal case, it'll scratch the phone even more whilst inserting or removing the phone from the case.

    Oh yeah, if you're super upset about the scratches, you might be able to get it polished. Go to your local mobile repair stores or something.

    This is why I got rid of the note 4. Imagine what this phone will look like after a year? Great phone, great design except the metal frame.

    There's several things about the Note 3's design that I prefer to the Note 4's. The rounded glass that makes a tempered glass screen protector more of a challenge. The easy-scratch metal. It's enough to seriously diminish any desire I may somehow still have for the Note 4. Especially given the perfect condition of my 6-month-old Note 3 that is only through half of it's life (for me anyways).

    Sorry to hear that. If that was the case then I would have gotten an exchange immediately. But I do recommend a case, especially one that is soft on the inside since those edges seem delicate.

    Lol I've gone through 3 . 2 with t-mobile and was exchanged for other reasons and now with Verizon . While annoying I rather not have the case . The note 3 never had an issue and now is with this metal ....shouldn't have to change because of it. Could of just painted all the metal imo

    It doesn't look like it protects the bottom front edge. I like the case though.

    Really pleased with the build quality of the Note 4 so far. I had the Z3 for about a week of careful usage and the screen suffered a number of scratches but the screen on the Note 4 seems much more durable so far.

    The metal band is holding up well so far too but that's a minor point for me. As long as the screen remains durable, I can live with scratches on the metal.

    Not as yet....but it's on my Christmas list.

    I'm fairly careful with my phones and I was extremely disappointed with how the Z3 scratched up so easily and quickly.

    I use a Tech 21 case with a Zagg tempered glass screen protector and that combo has really kept my Note 3 in pristine condition. Very happy with that.
