It reminds me of an etch-a-sketch.... its under the glass, but if i look at it from a certain angle i can see a shadow of the line on the digitizer. so its between the glass and the digitizer.....Not a cracked screen... but something else?!!!....-img_1959.jpgNot a cracked screen... but something else?!!!....-img_1960.jpgNot a cracked screen... but something else?!!!....-img_1961.jpgNot a cracked screen... but something else?!!!....-img_1962.jpg

    I might be one of the linings of the glass. Do you have insurance?

    Either way, you have a 1 year warranty through your carrier/Samsung. You might get a refurb, but it's better than that.

    Why a refurb and not a new phone?

    Because if it's after the 14/30 day return period, then they send you a refurbished unit.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I went to the AT&T store i bought it from and they referred me to the warranty center in an adjacent building. went over there and the service guy looked at it, wiped it off with the cloth, then whipped out a magnifying glass and an LED light. after his review he deemed it to be a warranty issue. he said it looks like glue separation from the inside stating it looked as though it was between the digitizer and the glass. He also mentioned he had seen this before in other phones but this was the first time he had seen it or even heard of it in the Note3. I am backing up me device tonight and he said they will just swap it out with another phone. ill post whether or not it was new or refurbished. Thanks again z06mike for the suggestion!

    Hey,
    I have exactly the same issue. But unfortunately Samsung Repair Centre in UK called Anovo examined the phone and have found that it is not covered under the manufacturers warranty and asked me to pay 130!!
    It happen exactly the same as above, firstly the was a small line about 1cm and now, as you can see on attached pic is bigger and bigger. I do not know what to do now.
    Not a cracked screen... but something else?!!!....-img_20140519_092809294.jpg
