Lesson learned, don't keep the phone in the pocket that's meant to be sat on hehe.
On a seriouse note, glad you had the insurance!
IMHO, it is a manufacturing defect. The S2 or yes even the MePhone are not that fragile. My daughter has the S2, and is in college, if it were that fragile it would have needed to be replaced every other month or so. She told me that she has dropped her phone from her "hand" and her desk, over 2ft repeatedly, no damage.
The S3 should be corrected or come with a warning.
It is a HANDHELD phone, it should not have to be kept wrapped in bubble wrap on my desk. Other than it's fragility, I like the phone. SAMSUNG FIX THE SCREEN!!
That sucks but also the s3 is a lot longer than the Iphone and made of plastic lol I would never put a phone in my back pocketOriginally Posted by ebrizzle
It's not a corning issue, it's a part of manufacturing, and a part of owner negligence. There can be hundreds of different ways something can break, the funny thing is people hear Gorilla glass and they think it can not break, it's scuff resistant not shatter proof, we are not there yet with glass to be shatter proof, that means, you can NOT toss your phone around thinking it will not break, there will be times you will drop it and nothing will happen and others were it will get damaged, people also seem to forget that temperature plays a big part in a device tasking a blow and withstanding it, and not withstanding it, as materials expand and contract with changing temperatures.Originally Posted by frank_drebin1

I completely agree with you about the lack of owner responsibility. I've had no issues with mine and love it. I also treat my phone like it's a $600 piece of technology.Originally Posted by cybertec69
However, I know Corning has has some issues in the past. I'm just wondering if they tried to push their new glass out too quickly creating potential defects or potentially poor quality. I would think the phone would be able to withstand a 5" drop. Just a thought.
Well I can tell you guys that my dumbutt dropped my gs3 from about 5 feet onto hard tile. I was sure that it would be destroyed, but I guess the phone gods were on my side. Everything is perfectly good with the phone. I have never used a case with my Android phones but I do have them ensured.
