    The frame of the note 4 is plastic, that's why cases scratch it. This is easily evidenced when you remove the back or take out the pen. Compare it to pictures of a galaxy alpha. Those "antenna lines" are merely the plastic not coated with the chrome paint, they don't even go through the entire width of the frame, you'd see it through the painted section in the middle.
    Your bloody daft man.

    Carved in place by my Note 4.

    Hi, I think this tape on the edge of the phone. I have the exact thing on my phone in the exact same place.I thought it was a scratch but then noticed there was another 'scracth ' on the other side of the charger port. and 2 on the top of the phone.
    The tape is on very tight. I don't ant to scratch it off. will try a q-tip and some water...

    I got a Samsung S-View cover for my Note 4 and I think it scratches the chamfered aluminum frame somewhere on the bottom right corner of the phone. I just got it yesterday and this is the 1st time I noticed it

    Thanks for making me look

    I've been using the S View so three sides are always unprotected, and the fourth, most of the time. They all look fine, except for around the charging port. I really shouldn't plug anything into it since I have the spare battery charging kit and another spare battery Oh well, they add character...

    It's just the phone... It's inevitable unless you luckily found a good case early enough.

    Oh well, like someone said, adds character!

    Same here... But I like the case and you can't see the scratched edges when it's on, so I still use it (when I'm not going naked).

    Same thing happened to mine. I used a jewelry cleaning cloth that I use on my expensive silver jewelry and it took most of the scratches out.

    Was the jewelry cleaning cloth for silver or just any type of jewelry. I'm considering trying this. I noticed a few scratches on mine that I think I got from removing the case.

    I treat and have treated all of my phones like babies. Put a UAG Maverick on this case recently for about 2 weeks. Needed to take off case to pop out micro sd card and noticed scuffs in the metal on the bottom of the phone. Also noticed some beginning stages of peeling or flaking around the headphone jack. I know these may be minor to some but I consider it to be a major annoyance to me. I paid over $800.00 for this device and expected it to maintain it's pristine condition of day 1 throughout the life of the phone as long as I took proper care of it which I have. Is that asking too much? Are my expectations too high? Is Samsung's build quality not as good as other manufactures? Nothing I can really do about it, just venting, carry on....

    I hear you. It sucks. I'm wondering if taking sandpaper and just removing the shine and paint all together would give it a cool look?

    Not something I'm going to pilot....

    Yeah, it sucks...

    Honest to God I would leave it alone. There is just no way IMO that you are going to get it perfect and you can tell when metal has been polished. When high end watches make their way into the resale market, you can always tell when surface abrasions have been polished away and it always has an impact on the value...just about as much as if the seller just left the abrasions alone. So if it is the resale value of your phone that you are concerned about, I would still say your best bet is going to be to let it be. Plus we are already seeing reports of the paint bubbling. I think when it does come time to sell these things they will be sold on their value as a working phablet not on their aesthetics. I will grant you that the sale of used smartphones up to this point has been in part predicated on aesthetics. But I think the chances of somebody getting to the two year mark with no blems on his N4 is slim to none. IMO you should just take good care of it...do the best you can. But resist the temptation to try to repair minor blems. The guy offering up a perfect looking N4 two years from now is going to be a rare bird....again IMO.

    Yeah, you can always get insurance and smash your phone, then pay a deductible and get a refurbished one to sell....

    Or, just enjoy the phone as is, don't worry about it... Actually more incentive to use it without a case (if you have insurance) and just enjoy it....

    Like you said, just sit back and enjoy the ride!

    Is not the case that's scratching the phone. It's debris getting in between the car and the phone. Being polished edges, they will show every blemish.

    I'm about to buy one of these. But now I'm wondering: If the the metal edges are especially prone to scratches, then why is the fact the Note 4 has metal edges considered a major improvement over the Note 3 (and other Sammys) and a major selling point? What, really, is the advantage of metal? What am I missing?

    I think it actually protects against drops (when not using a case). Check out the Samsung drop test videos on YouTube (the ones made by Samsung). There is also an article on Forbes reviewing the note 4 and the author describes how he/she has dropped the note 4 a few times and it's held up better than both the Nexus 6 and iPhone 6+.
