    Me. πŸ˜€πŸ˜‘πŸ˜¦πŸ˜”πŸ˜’πŸ˜­

    Woke up this morning, noticed a ton of dust under my new Ringke Fusion case, so I decided to clean it out.

    I thought the counter was clean, so I put the phone face down to wipe down the back and wipe out the inside of the case.

    Put the case on, flipped it over to continue to wipe down the fingerprints on the front, and there it is...

    They're kind of small, but so disappointingly obvious. Ugh... they're 2 small scratches, but scratches nonetheless. Both on the face by the Bixby and lower volume buttons.

    I've had this since last Wednesday, and I waited until this past weekend to start using it as my main device because I was waiting on a case. Now that I got one, I still managed to scuff it already. Ugh...

    I hope they're not noticeable after I get my screen protector. I just ordered the Whitestone Dome and it should be here by the weekend if not next week.

    Does anyone know if they still make the stuff to fill in scratches on glass? I remember they had something a few years back for all the iPods (yes iPods) that would help fill in minor scratches. It was some kind of wipe or liquid application.

    Here's the deeper of the 2... I couldn't really get a pic of them together, but the second one is below this one.

    Mine came with a deep scratch that looked like that one...Verizon is allowing me to exchange it...

    Is anyone going to use a screen protector? Do they hinder the S-Pen any?

    I think you can use scratch removal liquid to cover up the scratches if they are not too deep

    I was bringing mine home yesterday, it was 5 hours old. Stepping up into my house it fell on the step and bounced. Not a scratch, not a scuff. I feel like you should have had that chance and I stole it from you- I apologize. Karma will get me.

    A Verizon employee scratched the back of mine while installing a screen protector. He's planning to replace it for me on Friday when they are available in store. I hate that I have this one set up and operating as I'd like, and now I'll have to start again if I take him up on his offer.

    it sucks, but you need to take it. he's hoping you don't come back because then he won't have to explain the return.

    I don't let anyone touch my device. I cancelled one of my pre-orders because they were going to open my box and activate it. nope. not mine.

    Yeah, I'm normally cautious about letting anyone touch my phone as well. He convinced me that he'd do a great job with the install, but the result was several scratches. Not pleased! Lesson learned!

    I did I had mine in my work bag last night. My co-worker dropped my bag and my note fell out face first on the tile. Landed flat on it's face. I thought for sure the screen shattered with the sound it made. Luckily I picked it up and nothing. Not a scratch.

    😨 yikes lol. My heart skips a beat or 2 even when I hear about someone else's phone has been dropped. Lol. I've dropped my note 5 plenty of times and not have a scratch. Hope my note8 holds up that way too. Lol

    Might want to look at installing dome glass screen. The addhesive is suppose to fill in the scratch's so you do not see them and protect your screen.

    Dang I'm sorry you got those scratches, hopefully you'll be able to fill them with scratch remover. I've dropped my phone twice but from a chair so only about 2 feet. Thank God no scratches or scuffs or breaks. I don't use screen protectors anymore, I just havn't had a good screen protector on a Samsung phone since the S6 edge, even my note 5 without a curved screen had issues with tempered glass getting halo effects and peeling off. So far I have had some good fortune, never cracking or scuffing a screen. I did notice 2 very very small scratches on my s7 edge a few weeks before getting the note 8 so I've taken extra measures to use the same clothes for cleaning the note 8 to hopefully prevent it from happening on it.

    Yeah, I ordered one yesterday, and I got the expedited delivery, so it should be here by the end of the week or early next week. My only concern is how it might work with the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro case I have coming by this Friday. It also has a built in screen protector, but it's probably plastic, and I doubt it'll fill in the scratch. I also hope the screen protector fits with my Ringke Fusion case.

    Scratch, heck, I already cracked the screen! Somehow chipped the top lip of the upper layer of the screen which created one big crack from the chip down about an inch to the left side. Several smaller cracks showing in this layer of the screen as well. Went to Sprint tonight to invoke warranty or TEP only to be told I'd have to shell out $200 to fix it. This is my third Note and fifth Galaxy and I've never had this happen. What I think happened is my money clip/ wallet caught that lip on the top on the device screen and it did the damage. Extremely disappointed right now.

    Yeah that does suck for sure. But since it's accidental damage unfortunately your on the hook for the cost. At least they will be able to get you another one. Imagine if it was a new iPhone. With the shortage of could take weeks or months.

    If it really bothers you, you could exchange it in store on Friday for a different Note 8 if you think the restocking fee will be worth it.

    I don't use screen protectors anymore because I think they are worthless. I have always bought them but have always removed them and returned to the store. They never look good, or fit to my liking, or allow for the same sensitivity as the phone's screen. I do better with no screen protector period.
