    Default Something happened to my note 2 :(

    I charge my phone then after it I unplugged it and put it on my leather case (there is no problem) then 3 minutes later someone texted me so I opened my leather case then I saw a dark spot on my screen then I opened the light on my phone and something weird appeared on my screen. What is this and how to fix it? Please help

    Looks like that would fall under factory warranty.

    Note 2, it's true, ,size is everything!
    love my evo.

    Call your cellular provider and request a replacement. Doesn't look good or fixable.

    If it is a US spec phone, the warranty is one year. You can buy it from any authorized reseller and Samsung will honor warranty.

    If it is an international phone not officially sanctioned for US sale , then your options are more limited

    It didn't matter if you didn't buy it from Samsung. Samsung provided the warranty on the phone from any carriers. If the carrier refuse to help you, you have to call Samsung and they will honor it.

    Ah sorry to hear that, mind if I ask where you got it from? Was it a refurb? Living in England I know that if I buy an imported phone from Asia, it will not be covered by the warranty. I'm hoping this isn't the case for you.

    Unfortunately if out of warranty your only option would be to get it repaired or to repair it yourself. The screen alone is probably not cheap anyway so you might just be better off getting it repaired by a professional rather than buying a screen off ebay and doing it yourself. Or just can sell it on ebay as broken and try and recoup as much money as you can and get a new one.

    Or just try and live with it and get it repaired once the price drops a bit.

    Hopefully it doesn't inhibit your usage too much.

    I noticed that when I push the glass it somehow gets ok (I mean the damaged part becomes smaller). So I think it's the outer glass? if so..can the outer glass can be replaced?

    The digitizer part can be bought separately from screen and for fairly cheap. This "should" be simple to change unless it is glued onto the main screen. Would be good news if it the main screen behind it isn't damaged.

    Hopefully someone with more knowledge of this specific phone can offer some advise on this. Are you positive that your warranty is void though?

    If you still have warranty, just unroot and send it in

    Yeah do this and you will be fine if you have normal warranty.

    Where did you buy your phone? Was it ebay or a grey import?

    After you get the new replacement, ditch the magnet case. That's probably what ruined your device.

    Galaxy note screen replacement guide:
    Part 1:
    Part 2:

    Keep in mind that the Note 2 screen is sandwiched between a Wacom digitizer on the back and the capacitive touch on the front glass and is strongly bound with adhesive that needs a constant 180F heat source and a very steady patient hand to separate.
    Not something I would dream of doing unless I got the screen and digitizer as a kit. Unfortunately these kits are still in the $200-$300 range.

    wow, i'm thinking magnet too. not so much the magnetic effect but maybe the pressure (condom in a wallet effect)?

    I've seen bulging batteries do this type of damage.

    If the battery were defective or suffered heat damage it can bulge and place pressure exactly where that mark is.
