Have always used Brotect AirGlass upon AquaFish, which as stands slightly proud probably helps reduce wear on this part of housing. Jolla 1 just gets shinier on the corners as more matt black coating worn away.

How are your Jollas and AquaFish phones holding up? I got my AquaFish just 4 months ago and I'm really worried about the build quality of the device (and since I'm in Europe, I doubt I could get the thing serviced/replace in a reasonable time without additional cost, I guess). Despite my greatest efforts - really, I treat all my devices with care - I noticed that some kind of plastic coating is peeling off (or rather, crumbling) around the screen, revealing glossy plastic.

The plastic coating is peeling off on my aqua fish too. Also random quite loud clicking noises(is it the camera like HtheB said?), sometimes speakers produce some hissing noise and sometimes heats up to crazy hot, Sometimes battery drains very fast. Gps not very reliable.

I use AirGlass as well, it doesn't cover the bezel around the screen though. Good to know I'm not the only one who has this problem. I mean, it's not good, but at least it's not just my unit. Camera clicking noise was fixed in Iijoki, so the only random "clicking" noise I'm hearing now is the screen not being assembled properly, which doesn't inspire confidence.

I just wish the build quality wasn't this bad.

The coating gets also loose on my Aqua Fish. As the plastic underneath is black it doesn't mind for me. I think it was more difficult for Intex to produce a smooth plastic surface and so they gave it a coating. Only bad thing are the coating pieces at your desk, in your car or whereever ;-)

Next thing: The Intex logo is getting loose. I hope sometimes all letters will fall off so there will be a clean look again...

I've got a 3M screen protection. As we know, the screen is not made of glass and I think this is the first you should do when getting a brand new Aqua Fish/Jolla C.

The power Button seems to wear over time. I have to press it a bit harder to get some reaction.

Sometimes, I hear that cell modem distortion sound from the speaker. This can be an electrical fault or maybe it can be fixed by software.

That's all I think. Apart from that, I find the Aqua Fish is a nice daily phone. I cannot use LTE with Vodafone in Germany, but I don't need it. 3G is fast enough for me.

After one year with the Jolla C as my daily driver, it's still in a very good condition. I usually carry it in my pocket with no protective case.

It's the same for me, the only protection I use is a glass screen protector, rest of the phone is unprotected and usually in the front pocket of my jeans. Phone still looks fine, no visible scratches on the case, only a little bit off coating is missing on the edge of the backcover between the power and volume keys. (only visible if you look for it).
