    Anybody had this issue with the Matt black iPhone 7 with some paint coming off at the speaker area?

    It's affected my resell value despite it being in a case all year.

    Sometimes cases can be the culprit with causing the paint to come off the aluminum. Especially if it's like a silicone case or a cheaper third-party case, it's been speculated to believe that it's a reaction with the case and the aluminum causing the paint to separate.

    Someone's iPhone 7 Plus in Red commented about the paint chipping around the speakers.Paint-Gate on the 7's.

    my iphone 7 matte black is chipped enough and it has a lot of blots on the back. I used a case made by HAMA. Bad decision ever. From now on, i will use my Iphones naked.

    If you are close to an Apple Store, take it in a see what they say. If it's flaking off, may be fault.

    It's a paint problem like iphone 5 black&slate. Apple will say nothing.

    Here's a picture

    Also lots of blotchy dots on the back panel after it being in a case.
