Now this does sound like Sammy's faultOriginally Posted by cybertec69
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 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.

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.
It ain't cheap, but it's a fix...
Simpson: The cost of repair cost for replacing the screen of the phone is approximately $ 178.61.

I would buy the digitizer and or LCD myself and replace it with YouTube instrustions. It would save alot of money.

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.Originally Posted by pamelak
