    Just curious if many people have cracked their Note 10 screen. I've had every note since the 5 and dropped them all many times without damage. Yesterday I cracked my 2nd Note 10 screen. Both were right in the corner with the Samsung rugged case on. Seems odd.

    Hi,
    You use a glass screen protector?

    I broke my screen within the first 2 months and never broke a screen on a phone before. I have had the note 2, 3, 5, 8 and 10+. Mine hit a wooden tv tray after I dropped it from about 3 feet. It ping ponged a bit and had a 3 inch crack on the bottom right. I had insurance and they fixed it beautifully for $30 at my house!!!

    No cracks or scratches on either my Note 9 or Note 10 Plus.

    I have not cracked mine but am locked down with little oppertunity to drop it. I have wondered, though, what the front camera cutout does to the structural integrity of the glass.
    I've been with a note 1, 2, 3, 4, 8 and now the 10+ and only on the 8 did I consider tempered glass savers as they came with frameworks to apply them flawlessly and.. The whole curved screen edge things.
    Didn't get an option for that on the 10+ ones and threw them both away after they made an oily, underprotector ring around the fingerprint scanner that caused it to fail.
    The phone does rock though.

    Welcome to Android Central! Oh no, what an unfortunate incident! I am sorry that happened to you! Sometimes it's just the way the phone falls - and if it falls and bounces a certain way, it could be a goner. That's where I would've thought the rugged case would help, but again, sometimes it's all about the fall.

    Never damaged a phone since the beginning ( Droid original). Always use a case, seldom use a screen protector.

    Your screens must hold up well! I'm too afraid to not have a screen protector on!

    I've got some unsightly scratches on my screen somehow, so I went back to using a screen protector. No cracks or anything though. Maybe some micro scratches on the back glass from before I got my clear skin, but no cracks there either.

    I have just realised that my failure to use a tempered glass screen protector on my Note 10+ was that I was applying it to the one already fitted.
    Badboy600. Check if your whole screen is cracked, or just the pre-installed protector.

    The preinstalled one is plastic film. How can it crack?

    The one I have seems like glass from the thickness and pinging my fingernail off the edge. Feels just like the glass one I have on the 8.
    I only just bought mine and so many things are different on the software from all of the reviews and tips. Maybe the screen protector has changed as well.

    The preinstalled ones aren't glass. Glass protectors don't work with the FPS unless it is like a Whitestone Dome with liquid glue.

    I'm right there with you... I dropped my phone like an ***** the other day, completely because I lost my grip on it somehow. A 2-3-foot drop on carpet though... Phew!

    Seems pretty normal. These phones aren't designed to withstand being dropped repeatedly. Current gorilla glass survives about 80% of test falls. That means on average, your phone will break on one out of five similar falls; and for roughly one person in five, their phone will break on the first one. (But to answer your question, I've never cracked the screen of any phone. But I rarely drop them--less than once per year.)

    Thanks for the responses! Ive never tried the glass screen protector but maybe its time. I was fortunately able to take advantage of Samsungs free screen repair for hospital employees. Very Smooth process

    Screen is perfect. I got the repair done at a local ubreakifix store. They are an official Samsung repair center so all the parts are OEM. They took a picture of my id and that was it.

    Just out of curiosity, did it come with one of Samsung's screen protectors as well?
