    Welcome to the forum. From what other posters have said, it is likely the cracks will run and get worse. They also affect the integrity of the phone, so yes, if it were me I'd have it replaced.

    Unfortunately, cracks are really hard to predict patterns for. I've seen them never expand, and I've seen them slowly get bigger and bigger. Plus, since you probably aren't able to tell how deep the crack is, you've now essentially lost that water resistance because the seal is technically broken. I'm not suggesting that it wouldn't hold up if you dunked it, but you have no way of telling the severity. I'm so sorry this happened to you! Absolutely stinks!

    I'd cash in the device coverage. I hate recommending a case, but it might be worth it for future drops. Or, use the case out and about, but during media consumption at home, take the case off.

    Other option? Slap a skin on the back glass, cover up the crack, add some grip, and something a little different style wise without a case.

    Best of luck!
