Not the sort of thing you want to see on a phone that's not even a couple months old, but it looks like the HTC ThunderBolt's kickstand has a little protective coating that's not going to stand up to the test of time. No, it's not a plastic film that we forgot to take off (though some phones are ridiculously covered in that stuff); it's just some sort of thin coating that's starting to come off. (You can can see it on the end of our kickstand above, as well as where it meets the phone.)
End of the world? Not hardly. But for as much money as we all spend on these phones, we could do without the cosmetic defects.
