    Ouch, that looks like a really sharp impact right on the screen. Sorry that happened to you.

    Ouch! For $200 couldn't you pay the deductible on insurance and get a new phone?

    Sorry to hear and see that. It's painful to look at it. Did u have any screen protector on? I wonder if a glass screen protector would have protected your screen.

    Oh man. That's just tough. Mine flew out of a handlebar mount on my road bike a few weeks ago and tumbled onto a rough road. That goodness it came out of it unscathed except for a couple gouges by the S Pen that corner area. No glass or body actual damage. How long will it take them for that screen replacement

    Judging by the picture it's a strong chance a glass protector would of saved it but who knows...I had my whitestone dome glass protector same day I got my note ...

    Problem of curved screen edges, there's really no good way to protect it no matter what case you use.

    I dropped my N9 face side down on the concrete garage floor from about 3 feet up. Zagg glass screen protector cracked and shattered but the phone face was unscathed. I would never carry around a $1000 piece of glass without protection.

    You look at that second picture - it looks like the damage more to the left never would have been stopped by tempered glass screen protector. It looks like it may have landed right on one of the teeth of the escalator treads... ixnay! That display was doomed as soon as it hit, I think, protector or not!

    Wow , that's good nothing happened to the screen . I'm a believer in glass screen protector saved my other phones.

    It's tough to say ,but the dome glass does protects that part . My s9+ had a similar hit on the side with the dome on it and it cracked the protector not the screen.

    Oh man 😱😱😱 my heart dropped just seeing that. I'm really sorry this happened to you. I really hope that they'll fix it for you quick. I always have a Whitestone dome screen protector on my Note. Had it on my Note8 and it saved my phone from getting a nasty crack when it fell off my bed and made a God awful loud bang when it hit the floor screen down. The protector broke but my screen was good as new.

    going up on an escalator, it slips off my hand, drop to the front escalator maybe from 10 inches tops, now I’m sure it landed curve-screen side first on the teeth of the escalator…..broke my phone heart and wallet lol
