I did a search and went through most of the results - and I still have a few questions for the PH owners out there: 1. Do the gold balls/hardware chip easily? 2. I've read complaints about the gold balls clinking - but when I tried it on, I recall them being magnetic, so is the clinking really a problem? 3. *Photo Request* - Picture of the PH with the straps shortened so that it's used as a hand-held. I've read that it looks cute, but to me I'd think the straps would look a bit odd flapping around. Also, wouldn't there be imprints on the straps where the buckle usually rests against it? 4. Are the straps curling much of an issue and how long before they start curling? TIA everyone!
