    Yes. It does. I haven't cracked any part of a phone since my blackberry days. I had a Note 7 prior to recall, S7, Note 8.. no cracks, even after drops.

    I've barely had the Note 9, in an Otterbox case, and somehow cracks have appeared to the lower right side of the cameras and fingerprint sensor.

    I haven't dropped it. It's in an Otterbox! Yet, the rear glass is cracked.
    Oh man that's awful... Wouldn't want that happening to my precious note 9

    Yeah I have a phone case for my note 9. Can't imagine anyone would carry a note 9 around without a case... I mean it's an all glass phone haha!

    I've never cracked a phone (and I don't use cases), but that's because I don't drop my phone. Any glass phone can break if you drop it, even with a good case. I'd advise against having an expensive phone unless you can successfully avoid dropping it.
    But I'm a nerd. Have to have them. The s7 edge was the only phone that cracked on me. With a case. So I was just wondering if anyone had the same issue with the note 9 as of yet. But I did just receive it and the curved edge is not as aggressive and the Samsung official kick stand Case cover the sides decently.

    Rocking a Spigen Tough Armor case and a IQ Shields wet application screen protector on phone since I got my Note 9 in September. Had a hand full of drops and not a scratch on it. Use a case and a screen protector and hope for the best.
    The Note 9 just seems to be a little tougher. I haven't tried no field goals with it, but I do believe it's stronger..
    How's the screen protector feel to the touch and for the pen?

    It's a curved screen design, so the screen is easy to break, it's best to buy a phone case.
    Definitely have a case. But the s7 edge I had still cracked the screen with name brand cases.

    Ok, fair enough.

    For what it's worth, my impression is that the Note9 is generating fewer reports of cracked screens than the Note8, which in turn had fewer than the S7 Edge. If so, then either the phones are getting sturdier, or users are getting more careful, or everyone is getting tired of reporting broken phones.

    The note 9 is made to be sturdier than the note 8!

    I dont use a top notch case, usually just the LED case or a leather wallet. However I am rocking the White dome which hopefully will protect the main screen. For the not so casual mode I just got the Palm companion to go with the note 9, which in turn will put a little less use on the high dollar note when I decide to get a little more radical. Thats how I roll!

    Then you have some kind of defect.

    You have it in an Otterbox and never dropped it. You're saying it basically cracked for no reason. Something wrong there. I wonder if someone else got their hands on your phone and dropped it. I've seen no other reports like that. Heavily protected, never dropped, spontaneous breaking.... makes no sense. I'd say something happened you may not be aware of, or the phone was defective.

    There are plenty of people (including myself) who do not use screen protectors.
    I don't use tempered glass on the newer Samsung phones due to most of them uber suck, BUT I always use an Otterbox Defender or other case that has large lips that protect the screen. I keep my phone in the right pocket with nothing else in my pockets to scratch it.

    I don't understand why people use thin cases with very small raisivity like the tech 21 cases for example.

    It's odd. Like the Armadillotek case for example on youtube people reviewing it are throwing it all over the place and no damage appears. Then I read on Amazon reviews someone drops it from 3 feet and the back of the device spider web cracked and someone else shattered their screen with the case.

    Someone with a Unicorn Beetle on Amazon said they didn't drop their phone and one day cracks appeared. I think in that case it's because the Beetle its super tight that it caused pressure.

    All the UAG cases are good IMHO. I use the UAG Monarch as my daily case and really like it.
