My Question is Has any of you guys gotten a stress crack on your S7 Edge? A person on another Forum is claiming that all edge screens crack because of the stress of the Edge screen. My daughter got her S7 Edge Day One and my other has an S6 Edge Plus Day one. None of their phones has gotten any kind of Stress cracks even after a fall. Since I am planing to buy the new Note 7 with edge(rumored) I just wanted to know if there is any truth to this.

Thank You in advance?
I'm sure it will be no issues ...I've not heard reports of cracked issues with them ...

I'm sure FK will scientifically correct me if I'm wrong but the molecular structure should be stronger in the curve than the rest of the screen, thus less likely to crack.

Since your kids have direct experience with no issues... sounds like you answered your own question...
I haven't heard of stress cracks on any of the Edge devices. I'd have to say that unless you make a habit of putting your Edge device in your back pocket and sitting on it, stress cracks are few and far between. Especially if you keep the device in a case.
Of course there will always be that exception to the rule, but the Edge variant has been out for awhile now, and this is the first I'm hearing about stress cracks on this device.

I haven't really heard of any stress cracks in any edge devices. If that were the case I'm sure there would've been news about it everywhere.

I don't think I put any added stress on my s7 edge and so far so good.
I've had no issues with my edges on my edge+. I did have it replaced once because of dead pixels but they were more in the middle of the screen.
