I have had mine since the day it came out. I was one of the very first preorders. This phone only has a tpu case on it and it spends its non use time in my back pocket, front pocket or cargo pocket. Not a crack one. I carry it in the same manner as I did my razr maxx. The glass is thinner on the SG3 and much smoother. (naturally, since it is second generation Gorilla Glass). This seems to affect a low number of phones. I don't think it should be a major concern in purchasing.
