Sudden, mysterious cracks?
I am currently about to upgrade my phone. I've been looking at the galaxy S3 for a while now, and im constantly going through forums for updates and new information. I was going to purchase the S3 tonight, as samsung is having a fifty dollar off sale on its website. However, while perusing the forums just now, I found some complaints about people's Galaxy S3s developing cracks out of the blue. One minute it will be fine, the next, a spiderweb crack. The people who have had this happen to them have done no damage to the phone themselves. Literally one money it will be perfect, and they will set it down, come back, and it will be cracked.
I've seen people say that it could be due to a number of reasons, including heat. These people have tried talking with Verizon, but Verizon expects them to pay anywhere from 200-600. My main point is, although the verizon note 2 hasn't been released yet, for those with any note 2, (because these cracks have appeared in galaxy S3s on all carriers) has this happened to you? Only a small percentage of people with S3s are having this happen to them, but nevertheless, samsung and verizon are refusing to replace them. I really dont want to become one of these unlucky people, and now I am thinking of the note 2. It has been my "backup" phone, I'm just hesitant about the size and price.
Anyways, just wondering if people have had mysterious cracks develop.

Re: Sudden, mysterious cracks?
Not a Verizon user, but I did own the GS III and now own a Note II. Never got any cracks, but the GS III got hot, real hot, real often. I have installed virtually all the same apps on the Note II. use the same auto charger, etc and this phone remains cool to the touch. with a larger battery I would expect it to get hotter when charging or discharging, but maybe the larger phone offers some thermal wicking. I have a lot of friends and coworkers with the GS III, and none have cracks from the heat (some do from dropping them), but they all seem to get hot like mine did.

My Galaxy S3 is still beautiful! Using Seidio Surface.
Operates well, except minor problems due to water. Who knew you couldn't take a phone swimming in the ocean!
