    I have had several metal side buttons on the Apple leather cases peel. I wonder if it is the same coating.

    It's real and happening it seems. A lot of reports on Google and our adult son just noticed today that a whole strip near the Micro SD slot has lost the space gray coating and is now silver. No abuse, no drops, case around it.. Something's not right with at least some portion of the SG X's. TOO many people reporting it. These are not the first Space Gray phones, but it is a new process.

    Curious to see if Apple retains the space gray iPhone X in 2018 or if they do retain It, do they improve the physical vapor deposition coating.
