I used to have a Samsung S8 and put it in my jeans pocket all the time. That phone does not even have a screen protector and in 2 years it did not even have a single scratch on the screen.
Now I am using a new S10 plus, within 3 weeks, the screen is now cracked from the inside. I did not drop the phone, no outside damage, screen protector shows no damage, the screen just cracked from the inside.
I really expect $1000 phone has a proper screen, not something soft and easy to crack like this. I called Samsung Premium Care and they asked for $99 plus tax to replace another phone.
This is very frustrated for me because this is not my fault to have the screen crack. I spent $1000 for the phone and I expect it to have a proper screen which I am not worry about anything while put it in my Jean pocket.
I am tired of back and forth argument. I am not supposed to pay anything. This is Samsung's responsibility for their products, and I expect to have a proper product in hand. This product is still under warranty and I need it to be replaced
Not sure if this happen to anyone else
Solved! Go to Solution.
Same thing happened to mine in the same spot.
Same thing happened to my Note 10+ in the exact same spot just like in these pictures. The phone had a case and the phone was in my purse, I did not drop my phone or my purse. I paid 1100 for this thing! I upgraded from a Note 5 and it didnt have a case on it, never had a screen spontaneously crack in my bag! Further the salesperson said I had a screen protector, I went back to the store another person said it really only protects against scratches. I definitely feel lied to.
I'm an EU customer. Same thing happened to me with my S10+. This is after just one and a half month of use (phone was in case). I never dropped the phone, and I also tend to put the phone in my front jeans pocket. Claimed an insurancy, and had to pay around 160$ for repairs. I'm now more careful with the phone, but if the same crack near power button will happen again in the next 12 months, this will be the last Samsung phone I will ever use, unless Samsung comes up with some free-repair or return policy for this model. I don't believe in coincidences, and I will certainly not pay for something that is apparently not my fault. Had an older S series model, and never had any problems with my phone for years.
