Pahahahahaha!! My 2 week old HTC One S looks more chipped than my 2 year old HTC Desire. Still an awesome phone, but the claims HTC made about the coating were ridiculous...
"HTC has always put the consumer at the centre of everything we do..."
"more durable, more premium finish..."
"... aircraft 6,000 series aluminum, 10,000 volts of energy... almost like lightning striking the phone..."
"... it's not a coating, it's a treatment to the metal..."
"... doesn't need a case..."
"Does your phone really need the same technology used by NASA for satellites?"
