    My phone slipped out of my pocket and landed on very thin carpet floor cracking the very corner of screen. I have a very thin case on the phone. I love this phone, but very disappointed in it cracking in the first month of use. I have never cracked a phone before.

    I like carrying my phone thin & naked too.
    But I'm scared it might get dropped
    That's why I have good protection around the ends and edges .
    Hate to have it broke and having to do without it for a month .

    Mine broke about a week ago. I had it for 33 days and I just took the case off for the night. I literally dropped it from about 1.5 feet at most from the ground and the screen cracked on the bottom corner. Everything is still functional but man is the screen weak! I dont have insurance and just missed the cutoff date... I am reaching out to samsung now but Im sure they wont be cheap... I may need to go back to the droid turbo 2. I have never broke a screen in my life.

    $269 for new screens.
    What do you mean by "cut off" date?
    I dropped mine 2 weeks after I got it.
    My understanding is that w/o ins. we all get charged.

    I guess you could say I reached out to SS too and paid the std. fee.

    That is my biggest gripe...
    In my opinion, they should at least offer to send me a free loaner while I wait.

    The local T-Mobile store has every color in stock but for some reason insurance has none yet. Waiting over a week when you pay a $175 deductible and 10$ a month seems a little unfair in my opinion.
    How is it unfair? You can buy it or not buy it?

    I know Staples now (well at least by me) repairs crack screens. You might want to go there and check out how much they cost.

    I know on most Samsung phones if you can still use your phone and if the color is still intact and all looks good then you didn't break the LCD part of the screen and the can replace that. If you broke the LCD Screen it is very expensive. Actually a person who fixes phones (this was 4 years ago) said to me it pretty much cheaper to get a new phone.

    Seems like some of you need to learn about responsibility. And how to also take care of an expensive phone. These phones are made out of glass and glass will break if dropped. It's physics. If you complain about a cracked screen, don't blame anyone but yourself.

    I was told that warranty would be void if Edge 7 screen repairs were NOT done by SS

    That would not be true TODAY.
    New screens = $269; new Edge7 = around $720.

    I dropped my S5 weekly too. Never had a dent or scratches! I love the functionality of the S7 but the front glass sucks miserably! The design of the phone should have included a stronger front glass. The insurance companies must be collecting deductibles like crazy! What a scam for such an expensive phone!

    From Corning... "The water-resistant Samsung GALAXY S7 edge has a dual-edge design and Quad HD Super AMOLED 5.5-inch display featuring damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 on both sides of the device." And my phone takes an otherwise innocuous fall in a case yet suffers a broken screen, I'd say trash is a good word to use.
    The key phrase there is "damage resistant." Not damage proof. It's still glass, and very thin glass at that (because we all demand the thinnest phones possible, then complain about the compromises that entails). Glass always has, and probably always will, break when impacted, and the thinner the glass, and the less protective material around the bezel, the more likely it is to break on impact. Anyone with half a brain can see the edge design leaves no bezel, and permits no case with raised edges, to protect the screen. Said person should be able to figure out that means more chances for the surface of the screen to impact a hard surface and be damaged.

    My first smartphone was twice the thickness of the Edge, had a 1/4 inch (or maybe thicker) plastic bezel on all sides of the screen, and the screen was recessed close to 1/4 inch below the frame surround the glass. I suspect the glass was thicker, too. That phone bounced down the road after flying loose during a motorcycle accident. The plastic was scraped to hell, but the screen survived. No one wants to buy a phone like that any more, though. It's not slim and stylish so you can show all your friends how cool your phone is. Instead we buy phones that look cool, but are about as fragile as a crystal wine glass, then complain about them.

    A very thin phone with a glass back, an almost non-existent frame around the edge, an exposed curved glass screen, and no side bezels, and we're surprised it's more fragile than a phone with a metal back, a full metal frame around the edge, and larger bezels? Really?

    Just like every other premium phone made today. See above comments about demading the thinnest phone possible.

    I don't get it, I dropped mine like 4 feet from a hard wood floor the other day, and it slid, but when I picked it up it didn't even have a scratch?
    It's well known that exactly how a phone hits the ground can make a huge difference in outcome. You can drop a phone multiple times without any problems, then drop it so it hits just right and the whole screen is gone. Impacts on the corners seem the most problematic, but even that doesn't always prove true.

    You drop a phone, you chance breaking it. How difficult a concept is that to get?

    Sales figures seem to support my statement, though. AT&T's "Active" versions never sell nearly as well as the standard versions of Samsung phones, and while people complain about battery life, not many purchase phones like the Droid Maxx with it's large battery and thick case. People vote with their wallets.

    It's amazing what a polarizing issue this is! There is the "you shouldn't EVER drop your phone so tough darts" group and the "what we're saying is this one cracks easier than any other phone I've ever owned" group.

    Neither group seems to respect the other at all.

    If this phone really does crack or scratch easier than any previous model I think it is fair to say it is an issue.
