I have a few days left to return. I'm not sure if this visible digitizer is worth the hassle. Anyone else have the digitizer issues. On any white screen its quite apparent and very distracting. Looks like there's a semi transparent film over the screen

Exchange it. Mine and my son's g3s are fine. I know our g2s had it though.

I can confirm. Tmobile didnt have ANY accessories. So i overnighted a case from amazon. I was wearing basketball shorts and the phone slips out of my pocket and the screen shatters.. a nice 10 hours after i bought it. That's pretty disappointing. Back in my Evo days, my phones handled drops like a champ.

Loved the phone though.

Exact opposite me! G3 feels and operates on a whole new level compared to my S4. Can't imagine going back!

This phone is absolutely awesome in every way. And this is coming from the guy who always buys a flagship device every 6 months since 2011.

This is one of those hedgy areas. Some people dropped their phones ten times with no problems, others had immediate shatters. On the N5 forums you had some people that dropped it off a nightstand and broke it, mine landed on concrete a few times and just had some slight dings. I've seen iPhones look like they went through a nuclear attack when they just fell off a table and those are supposedly the ones made out of strong, luxury aluminium.

I just know I won't be chancing the G3 falling.
So punish me for weakness, blame me for everything.
I don't like suffering, I like the sympathy it brings.
