    Widespread enough that at least a dozen sites are reporting about it so far. Widespread enough for it to be a concern.

    Bound to happen, Doubt it's with every phone. Every company has a bad batch of phones these days.

    Wouldn't hurt anyone to take a look and see if their units are showing any signs of this.

    What is your purpose here.....to help people with problems with their G3 or dissuade them for buying/using the device with your negative posts?? Looking through your posting history speaks volumes!

    Look we get it.....you love the M8 and dislike the G3. Please stop reporting unnecessary negative stories on a device you clearly dislike. Its makes you look like a hater. I dislike the M8 but you don't see me posting negative posts all over the place over there. Be productive by providing people who need help in the M8 threads! Thanks!

    AND no cracks AT ALL on mine and it took a [langage removed by Moderator] FALL from 14 FEET!!!

    No cracks on mine and I have dropped mine. I wonder in the ones that have cracks use a case or not? The only thing I agree with the article is sometimes its hard to plug in the USB, but when isn't that the case they exist in the 4th dimension.

    Do you realize that all of these sites just copy the same report and make an article about it?

    No cracks in mine, but I didn't use an electron microscope to look for nano-cracks. LOL.

    It doesn't take a lot of people complaining to have a dozen blog sites jump on the OMG it is the end of the world bandwagon. It's just a big echo chamber where if one site reports, everyone else feels obliged to do the same.

    I would pay attention if I were you. Maybe you could check your local store and ask the "what if" question or just return it and get a new 1.

    Quick circle case? According to a thread on XDA LG in Korea have said that's the cause along with integrated back cases.

    Mechanically, how could a case crack the frame? Is it stopping thermal expansion and causing stresses in the frame?

    I agree from his first post here its the impression of going out hunting for any information to use against the G3. Its not balanced, articulate or helpful.

    This may be an issue for some and worth checking, but as one poster mentioned the Z2 had issues with the glass cracking (I haven't experienced this) but its been reported.

    So an article was written as an advisory no doubt. Explaining this has happened and may effect you?

    My G3 is 2+ months old now and no cracks, this doesn't mean its not a problem.

    But what would be useful is to check yours, and let's see statistics on how many of the millions of G3's sold are effected.

    Some statistics to put things into prospective :-)

    Completely agree.

    No cracks.

    I don't think there's anything wrong about the OP bringing this issue to our attention, it's useful information even if he doesn't like the G3.

    Looks like LG, in an attempt to cut costs, used really cheap, brittle plastic.
