    Default WIFES S3 broke By ITSELF!!!

    So my wife and I were online shopping at the dinner table. Her s3 was playing pandora as I asked to switch the channel picked it up put it down no prob. 15 minutes later she recieved a text as i pressed the button to tell her whom it was I noticed a hairline crack straight across the screen. No drop no anything only 1 month old!!!! What to do now I seriously think there is a glass defect and overheating is causing this problem. Anyone????

    Apparently, this has occurred more than once. A quick search finds more than one online thread about it.

    yeah I saw all the posts throughout just wanted to start a new one and see what were the results from these defective cheap korean phones.
    If the screens are defective on some phones the company should recognize as apple did when they had the antenna problems.

    I have seen some posts about this in the past. I have a release date S3 and mine has none. However the screens on these devices do seem to break easy! Not good IMO but I still love my S3 no less so far!

    Contact your carrier for warranty replacement.

    Samsung will NEVER admit theres a bad batch of glass and recall unless a major site *cough android central* did an exquiry/pole!
    It would cost them a fortune and damage thier pride.
    Im one of the lucky ones who has a dented bezel, scratched and dented battery cover and flawless screen (no protection)

    Everyone with a sub-standard glass... tell a Mod... maybe someone can get done.
    Theres been threads about this since i joined and we're just tellin eachother when its SAMSUNG who need to know.
    Its impossible to prove you didnt damage the screen without misuse so someone has to do a major quality control check on the manufacturer and get some answers about the micro SD problem while we're at it.

    I duno how to start these mass things but someone must?

    It's not really nitpicking. She's had the phone for a month and it's obviously faulty. I know with as much as I paid for mine, it it did that, I would be at the store throwing a fit. My battery keeps overheating. I get a voice warning when it overheats. I'm gonna go get a new battery, it probly won't help but it's worth a shot

    Seems like this has happened to a few people, not enough to call it an epidemic and pull out the pitchforks.

    File a manufacturer warranty claim. A hair line crack and a shattered screen are very different. They can't prove it was dropped (especially if you make a big stink about it).

    Unlike with antenna problems that can be replicated or quantified, how will you ever prove your screen didn't break because you sat on it? I still don't think there is some bad "batch" of phones, I just think that the luck of the draw is some people avoid scratches from keys while others are not so lucky. You have to remember, this isn't your old droid or phone with gorilla glass, this is your new 4.8 thin LED with gorilla glass 2. No one ever said it was scratch proof or break proof.

    I would say try and take it to the place you bought it from. Tell them it cracked somehow. Tell them that as there is no visible scratches or drops anywhere, you don't know how it happened. Thats the best you can do. It's just the unfairness of life, sometimes these things happen.

    I have a very small(unnoticeable unless you look for it) crack near the middle towards the bottom of my screen. I can confirm that I never placed it in my pockets with keys, dropped it, or anything crazy. However I find it hard to believe when people say stuff along the lines of "huge crack down the center of my phone", or "screen randomly shattered" but then go on to claim they'e always babied their phones, never dropped etc...However there could be a bad batch of Gorilla Glass 2 out there.

    Question.........

    No case when pandora was playing just sitting on the dinner table, no case when it sat on the table for the whole day and she used her iphone as a replacement swapped sims. I had it multitasking and charging for the day when I got home from work more cracks just sitting there. This is definately an internal overheating problem as I feel that is causing internal preassure pushing up on the lcd, to glass.

    Truth be told OP there is very little the community can do to help you or ease the pain. Things like this just happen sometimes. I remember an iPod I had randomly had a cracked screen one day and it was sitting snuggly in my glove compartment. I just had to suck it up and pay for repair. It's like if your car had an issue and you couldn't fix it yourself, take it to the shop, deal with it (I suggest the former), and if you feel like it's a manufacturer defect contact them right away.

    Truly sorry for all those who have had this happen to them. I was about to pick up a S3 today, but after reading this forum, as well as the other one provided by the link on the other page, I have decided to go with the note 2. I am asking around to see if this has been happening with the note 2, but I really hope it isn't. Of course, even though it shouldn't, it COULD happen to any phone. I just haven't heard anything like this with the N2.

    I hope you eventually find a solution!

    I have the S3 and it gets hot when I'm using it while it charges. But I haven't had any problems with the glass breaking. Samsung knows it's happening. They just won't admit it. Maybe they have removed the remaining faulty phones from the market.
