    If it makes you feel any better, the top/bottom edges of my matte black Lumia 920 have become more smooth/glossy due to not using a case initially. I regularly slip it in and out of my jeans pocket, so the friction against fabric eventually smoothed out the edges. I can't really fault Nokia for that.

    I just got a black CC-1043 case. It's form-fitting, and I can't see the wear and scratches anymore.

    So it sounds like you should be upset with the cover manufacturer, not Nokia.
    This!

    Don't blame Nokia for what a case did to your phone.

    In two minutes I have remembered at least more than 20 devices (a lot of them are Nokia) I had used over the past 15 years of using cell phone with tens of covers most of them are cheap (1-2 $) and I never had this before ... WHY !!!!

    Actually I am not upset anymore about the phone cuz I am really pissed of right now of FaNokia boys who can not see that this devise is the worst from Nokia as a hardware quality !!!
    Looks good , feels good but it is not that good !!!

    My father still has his N95 till now cuz he is not a big fan of touch screen phones and he realy has abused his phone for years and the phone still standing with no complain !!!

    That was a BlackBerry I used from May 2009 to November 2010.

    I've also worn the paint off a few keys and the touchpad on my HP laptop.

    that's what you get for putting a case on a Lumia 920. I've had my 920 for almost 3 months now with no protection whatsover, and so far, there's not a scratch on the glass or body. I've even dropped it 2 or 3 times.

    the 920 is a beast, you don't lock it up, you don't chain it up, you don't dress it up, you don't muzzle it. Let the beast run free, let it soar, respect and trust in it's strength and it will serve you well.

    Yeah that's weird, being a single piece of polycarbonate that's the same color all the way through (as in it's not painted). It looks like whatever the case is made of reacted with the phones polycarbonate and dulled the finish, I would take either a magic eraser or some polishing compound and buff it out, I bet that would fix it.

    I don't know.. The way I see it is like, you have a son and to protect him while playing skateboard, you bought him a couple of low quality knee-pads and all to keep him safe. But when he fell, the knee-pad somehow made some bruises on your son's knees. Instead of putting the fault on the knee-pad that cause the injury, you blame your son for having a low-quality skin... Just the way I see it though.

    I've had an experience of protection case ruining my phone. I used my N97 mini without a protection case for a year and I didn't have any problem and not a single scratch at all. But then, I decided to protect it and bought a cheap MYR10 cover to protect the back. A week later, I took it off and found the cover had scratched the edge and the back of my phone! So, after that I decided to let the device free without any casing whatsoever. Until today, I didn't register any new scratches to it. I didn't blame Nokia for having a not-so-good quality phone, but I blame the cover for not being a good quality product and ruined my phone. Yes, also my mistake for buying a cheap cover...

    Anyway, I feel sorry about your phone though. I know how it feels like to have that kind of thing happened, even if it is small enough for some. Just live with it because to me, these small scratches and all kind sort of adds a character to the phone.

    Or like blaming the car when you get in an accident and the airbag leaves bruises on your face...

    Of course I do. You bought a cheap case, and put it on your phone. Your phone got scuffed - under the case. Instead of blaming the case, you blame the phone. It's a little ridiculous, because if you hadn't put that case on your phone, your phone wouldn't have gotten those scuffs. That isn't the phone's fault.

    This isn't like the epidemic with the iPhone4, where the glass shattered beneath cases when debris got in. Your phone got a little scuffed. Perhaps a better case wouldn't have caused this? It appears that your case is fairly unique, or these forums would be flooded with similar posts. Therefore, the likely conclusion is that your case caused your phone to get scuffed.

    I don't think you did
    what about the reply above !!!!! so your conclusion about that is my cover is unique !

    And about your example it should be like that someone did an accident and the airbag did not respond due to the poor quality car manufacturing so the driver go screwed then people in the car company told him that it is your fault cuz you had an accident !!!

    millions of cheap covers manufactured all around the world every year , never heard of phone got scratched like this before , but maybe like you said before that my cover is unique !!!

    I did read this whole thread and the damage seem to come from your cheap cover that let the dust or sand into the edge of your cover. Otherwise, where on earth did you get that? A ghost sneak into the side of your cover and slowly scuffing the edge of your screen off?

    ^ Just simply put into this. It's your cover that made the damage, blame the cover and not the phone. That's our conclusion.

    Exactly! Put the back cover on and be happy. If you find it bothersome, get the screen replaced. Done..

    Well, in our life we will always experience something new and what we've never seen before - be it good or bad. It could be your case being problematic. I mean, it's owkey and fine buying a cheap case but make sure you inspect the quality first before putting it on an expensive device. At least that's what I did now. I feel sorry about the scratches on your phone though. Been there, done that. But sometimes you just have to live with it. Mourning over it won't make it any better...

    From my experience, yes a cheap case ruined my N97 mini and now I leave it just as it is, I never register a single new scratch on it.

    Here is a guess as to why it has never happened before... You have never used this specific kind of case on this specific kind of phone. Sometimes, things just don't play well together. Budget manufacturers of ANYTHING cheap are under constant pressure to cut expenses so they have the cheapest product out there and still make as much money as possible. Perhaps they used a slightly different chemical in manufacturing this style of case. Maybe they even ran low and got a bad mixture, resulting in a bad batch. This case you are using was not made of the exact same chemical compounds as all your previous cheap cases. It isn't even made using the exact same chemical compounds as a visually identical case by another manufacturer. The reasons why this could happen now and never before are endless.

    The fact of the matter is, your case damaged your phone. That is the fault of the cheap case, not the phone.

    1. Stop using (!!!!) marks after each and every sentence. It makes you look like a troll on a hunt to talk crap about one specific manufacturer for no apparent reason.
    2. You used a cheap, chinese (most likely) case that wasn't approved by Nokia or any other reputable 3rd party accessories maker.
    3. Instead of blaming a case manufacturer for what happened, you blame Nokia. It's the same as putting an unnecessary cover on a steering wheel and then blaming car manufacturer because your airbags didn't deploy properly.
    4. Why do you think most manufacturers recommend only using approved accessories? It's because these approved accessories were tested on a specific device and cleared for sale.
    5. This case doesn't have any kind of quality control so all of them are different. (You don't even know what material it's made of except plastic).
    6.This never happened to you because different phones react differently to different cases.
    7. What happened to your phone is NOT the fault of Nokia. Go blame the case manufacturer.
