Chrome coming off power & volume rockers - anyone else?

    Ok, I've noticed for a couple weeks now that a few "flakes" of the chrome paint on my power button have come off, I thought at first this was due to maybe an impact since I carry mine in a holster at 90 degrees - also I ride a bike so maybe something like sand or debris did this. But further looking at it theres no mark under the missing chrome, so I ruled that out. Looking closer the rockers for the volume control have a couple specs missing - I obviously use the power button more than the volume, and now since I've notice this I switch back and forth from the home button/P button to wake the phone in a attempt to prevent more wear and tear.

    Anyone else see this happening? Its honestly not that big a deal, I can tell the camera button is poorly painted too but due to the fact I use the on-screen shutter I rarely ever touch that one. I've contemplated just removing the chrome all together, a touch of acetone applied with a q tip would do the trick. Black wouldn't be bad, I just would rather have all the colors be consistent instead of the "chipped away" look.

    so, anyone else having this issue?

    Mine is most definately coming off of the power button. No problem with the volume rockers yet.
