HTC shows off its process for making the super strong One S body
HTC really wants consumers to know that it is putting a lot of work into its new line of devices. HTC said that it would be focusing more on the quality of its devices and not releasing so many, and this video certainly shows off some pretty cool things that HTC is doing to make the body of its upcoming HTC One S

The process is called Micro Arc Oxidation, which is described in the video as being "almost like lightening striking the phone." Apparently, the way it works is that HTC starts with "aircraft 6000 grade aluminum" then hits it with 10,000 volts of electricity. That causes an oxidation process which forms a ceramic surface on the metal. The end result is a phone body that is 5 times stronger than aerospace aluminum and 3 times stronger than stainless steel. 

HTC claims this means that you don't need a case because the phone itself is so strong. Definitely a pretty nice looking process, and the HTC One S was already looking like a pretty awesome phone.

If this new phone can pass a drop test form "Electronics Break" then its worth talking about.

Htc needs to work on these promotional videos more. Although the tech looks cool.

"

Dumbest line ever, cases are for shock absorption and less about the shell breaking. You want the innards to stay in functional order, having a hard outer shell just leaves the shock to wreak havoc on the internal in a fall. Now if the chassis had some interior shock absorbing materials then I would say forgo the case, but no one wants scratches :).

Yes, I agree you probably don't need it in your phone but still WOW! Just the thought that HTC would put such attention to detail in their new models deserves a WOW! If they coupled that with really good battery life, then I say WOW, really WOW!

what is android doing that upon all this great tech and beautiful designs still people go out there to purchase dump iphones? i feel that due to the low end android devices,android itself and any other hardware that runs it has lost some dignity and respect. android needs some serious rebranding if you ask me.
