    To stay on subject, I had a nice little drop onto some tile floor, nothing drastic but it had me worried. Not a single scratch, mark, or chip. Keep it in a nice little matte case with no screen protector (for now).

    OK, now I'm getting involved. The senseless trolling and fanboy activity will stop now, or I will start handing out infraction points. This train has been derailed so many times in the last couple pages I've lost count.

    This is my first and last warning. Next stop is infraction central.

    Discussion is needed!

    To everyone - Please keep the thread on topic and steer clear of trolling. Any further posts that take things off topic again, or that are nothing more than trolling remarks, will be deleted.
    This is a serious issue for some users, and it is something that should be discussed.
    But stirring up fear and uncertainty with absolutely no basis for doing so will not be tolerated.
    I appreciate that most S3 users are not having an issue with this and I'm one of the unlucky few; however, it still is a real issue to those of us that are experiencing this. It's very disheartening to save your money to purchase a phone - which I would love to own - only to have it crack in less than 24 hours of owning it. Also, pretty unsettling when you try to explain that you didn't drop it; that it had a screen protector; that it was in a case, etc. Then, everyone involved - vendors, Samsung say they've never heard of the issue. Well, now I've told you and presented you with documentation of the other "few" people having the same issue. Luckily for me, I have insurance but still have to shell out additional money to cover the deductible to cover replacing a phone that I DIDN'T DAMAGE

    I am reading all these posts on cracked screens for S3s and it had me worried (just got mine last week and am THRILLED by it!). Just a thought, throwing it out there, it seems a lot of people use these very tight cases on their new phones. I'm wondering if this doesn't cause stress on the very thin frame of the S3 and if using a case on ones S3 isn't counter-productive.

    I'd considered buying something but first thought I'd only get something that was softer rubber and now I'm thinking of not getting anything at all.

    Which is why I said this is a serious issue that should be discussed.

    I was referring to some posters who have been making off-topic and/or trolling remarks. Those who actually have legitimate information or perspectives on the issue being discussed are more than welcome to post about it.

    hmmm may be possible... a lot of ppl did say they had cases on it... but my guess would be that there was a bad batch.. when I got my DROID1 it bricked itself in 2 days of use... no rooting or anything other than downloading apps and making calls... getting the first wave of phones seems to be like getting a first year car.... a lot more issues than later models

    U know u could be right. Maybe everyone that posted or posts about their screen being cracked by itself should post what type of case if any was being used. That will narrow that down. My parents both have a S3 and use the Otterbox Defender, my dad is pretty hard on phones, I swear he is, his takes a beating everyday and so far they have both held up. I was worried and well aware of this thread when they bought them but knock on wood the S3 has been durable for them.

    Lol but you could also be right as well, just maybe a bad batch.

    I really think it is a bad batch. With over 20 million sold around the world through three months with the exact same physical design, Samsung would have had to acknowledge it if it was more than that.
