    I got a replacement one in a couple of days ago and still has the bad looking windows key when it lights up. was hoping the replacement one looked better but atleast it functions 100% unlike the one I replaced.

    I just got a replacement as well. It's moderately better, but still there.

    Amazing how much more slippery a new phone is, too.

    I'd just like to chime in and say that about 3-4 weeks after I got my white 928 the goopiness is entirely gone. The buttons are clean, evenly lit, and look quite nice. I had serious goopiness when I originally bought the device, so maybe it'll go away for everyone? I wish I had before and after pics, but it definitely got better.

    Seriously? It just melted off? Forgive me, but I'm having trouble wrapping my head around that.

    Mine is much better than it was previously, it does seem to "melt" off (as hard as that is to believe).

    Oh good grief. The goop is likely some type of adhesive that is partially opaque when not fully cured. Once it cures, it becomes transparent. This is similar to the issue that the iPhones had back in the day. So no "melting" is required...just curing of the adhesive.

    Yeah, totally serious! I mean I have no idea what the process of it fixing itself was... But yeah, it's totally clear and normal now. Like I said, I wish I had pics, but I have no reason to lie about that :p

    It would seem not. I've just finished buying, then returning three 928's at my local Costco. Back to using my Trophy until I can get my hands on one without the defect.

    I just don't really understand why the 928 is the only reported Lumia with this slow curing adhesive trait. I'm glad it solves itself, though!
