    I was doing my weekly cleaning on my X this morning (lint, fingerprints, etc) and found a pretty ugly surprise. I have one of the Verizon TPU cases on my phone. When I went to take it off, I noticed a gash in the rubberized coating where the TPU case meets the lower left hand corner of the phone. It looks like I may have accidentally caught a groove with my fingernail taking it off and not noticed I'd scraped the surface.

    The only reason I'm upset is because of the hit I'm going to take at Gazelle when I sell it off next fall to pay for an LTE model. I keep this thing in the case, wrap it in a microfibre cloth before putting it in my pocket (by itself, screen facing my leg). It kind of irks me that it was that easy to damage without dropping or scuffing it in a more memorable way.

    OB Commuter is on the way, hopefully I can at least keep it where it will have a "good" rating...
