My recently bought S3 LTE just fell and the screen got a big crack on it...
It was the first fall...

My S3 LTE has fallen so many times. I don't know how much exactly but its >10. The screen is still intact.

Man, then perhaps the Brazil version of the phone doesn't have Gorilla Glass??? (I would expect that)
This phone is the first one to be giving me some headaches...
First the heat that comes from it when using EDGE and browsing photos and then the phone falls and screen cracks...

Did you bought it new? I seriously doubt the Brazzilan i9305 is different from the rest of the world If it was second hand, it had the screen and front glass replaced with cheaper one

It is new, from a store in Santarém PA - Brasil...
I've heard some stuff around that says, that since in Brasil things are expensive, then some phones came here with no Gorilla Glass, i think the S2 was one of them...

I don't think it came without gorilla glass. Samsung wouldn't do something like that.

If you bought it new you will have gorilla glass for sure. Maybe I am just lucky that the phone doesn't fall at an angle where it will surely break the screen.

Samsung will never sell their products below their stated standard as everywhere else.. The screen condition is up to you to judge... If you still have warranty get it replaced...

Must a been a hard fall to get a Crack on gorilla glass..

That's a bummer... Mom's HTC one V has a Crack but the phone works flawlessly.. S3 is even more solid.. So you can hope the phone didn't get damage.. Good luck
