    I don't think he was saying it was Samsung's fault but that he had other phones that survived similar drops whereas his gs3 is more fragile...unlike his other phones.

    I'm curious as to why someone punched you do hard in the back of your had that your phone went flying.
    Inaccurate. I don't know how to measure my usage compared to what would be considered the average, but I do not excessively drop my phone. For half a decade I've been sporting touchscreen phones. In that time frame, there were dozens of bumps and falls. I've had two S3's. I would like to say they underwent my average use of a phone, but I didn't even them have them long enough before they cracked. Now I'm not blaming Sammy, but there is a reason why these posts are surfacing.

    I just thought I'd put my 2 cents in this. If u own a phone like this why would u not buy an otter box to be SURE you won't break it? I mean or at least a case. I drop mine all the time but thats wwhat the otter box is for. I have an otter box on my iPod old Droid incredible and my so and I will probably always buy otterbox cases for all my phones.Just saying.

    I'm careful with my expensive toys.learned that as a kid. Sometimes I drop it by accident but it has never cracked. If it does, that's my fault for dropping it. When we were younger,we'd have a parent yelling at us. Instead, we have grown adults wanting to tell at some one else.
    Go figure.

    My glass is broken as well

    I feel your pain! I am SO mad at myself right now. I have had this phone for about a month, went to get the Otterbox (I am rough w my phones) and it wasn't available yet. So I had a screen protector and the 2 part rubber and hard plastic case on it. I was just walking up the stairs w my phone in my hand and tripped, caught myself with my hand fisted around my phone and the bottom right corner is completely shattered. Yes, I put undue pressure on my phone. Yes, its a fragile piece of technology. Yes, I am irresponsible toddler. What's a girl to do though? The phone is too large to fit in my back or jacket pocket and most of my purses. It really does seem that the phone is much more fragile than phones I've had in the past. I do not have insurance (it's a company phone) nor do I have $600... I guess I'm going to go ahead and try replacing the glass, I have nothing to lose. Any feedback on replacement glass would be appreciated.

    PS. I'm new to this forum, I came across it when I googled 'replacement screen for GS3'. It's disappointing to see how people are treated on this forum just looking for answers. I wanna punch stupid people in the throat as much as the next guy, but seriously, every post doesn't have to be responded to with a nasty comment.

    BROKE in a 2 ft DROP- SHATTERED!!!

Spiderweb everywhere and would not turn on. The phone however, remained on, and there wasn't a scuff, scratch or scrape to be found on the phone anywhere else besides the screen. I couldn't believe my eyes. I tried to sweet talk vzw with no luck. I did contact Samsung and they said they would "evaluate" the phone and if it was considered a manufacturing defect they would replace it for free (shipping free as well). But it was a 7-14 day wait, and i needed my phone. So I sucked it up and paid the 100$ insurance. I expressed my concern to vzw that the screen should not have broken that easily. BTW I also had the case on it at the time that vzw was selling. Anyway, I now have my new phone from the insurance and have since purchased the otterbox defender case. I HATE IT. I want a durable phone back, even if it is 1.2mm thicker. Just my 2 cents.

    My phone dropped out of my apron at work and SHATTERED!!! It worked for about half a day and then died. I had the original Galaxy and LOVED it for two years! I dropped that thing too many times to mention and IT NEVER EVEN SCRATCHED!!! Now a 600 $ phone touted to have this magic Gorilla glass and It shatters w/i only 3 months???
    WTF???? I loves this phone but NOW I HATE it and warn EVERYONE!!!!

    Gorilla glass is just like any other fortified glass, they are all scratch proof to a certain extend "not shatter proof from drops directly impacting the glass", and anything over 10H hardness rating will also scratch the glass, like a steel knife with over 10H rating, or a diamond or a sand crystal, not anywhere have I seen a manufacturer of fortified glass claim it is shatter proof, it's still glass, and glass has a crazy tendency to shatter when dropped on a hard surface.
