    I carry naked, but just noticed the bottom right corner, edge, the red paint has come off a little, revealing the silver. This might be due to me placing the phone standing up in the plastic cupholder of my car, sometimes. so you might consider that. Don't place your phone on any hard surface or have it come in contact with any coin, keys, metal.

    BBMo should offer the red paint in touch up size tubes for sale.

    I wonder if anyone knows the color code for the red. I might get it scanned and see if my local shop can make me a touch up.

    I would just leave it as a few marks on the paint would just add a bit of character to the phone, takes a licking and keeps on ticking etc. :-)

    I just bought one of these rings at the dollar store. I like this much more than a case, since I still can appreciate the beauty of this phone
    It also only cost me a dollar.Back to the naked KEY2-img_20191129_220013-1-1.jpeg

    I don't think plastic is supposed to scratch the paint off a phone..

    It’s probably since the original color underneath hadn’t completely dried yet

    It's the corner base of the keyboard. I think I read once that the keyboard frame is plastic. True? Would make sense.

    The keyboard frame is definitely plastic. There are Key2 keyboard replacement / complete tear down vids on Youtube where you can see how it is glued down. The frame of the phone including the round corners and bottom where the speaker / power connector holes are all painted aluminum.

    My Silver K2 also has a nick in one corner of the chin. Bought colour match touch up paint and it matches perfectly, unfortunately it will not stay on. I don't want to sand the surface for the paint to stick. Hope you have better luck.

    I originally bought the OEM softshell when I ordered my Key2 Red, but felt super bad covering it up. so I bought one these type clear cases.

    It's not as awful as I had envisioned and it will offer some protection from when I inevitably launch it across a room.
