I think this is a manufacturing fault and reading here confirms that something is very wrong here.

Thanks.

GUTTED!

Pictures
Thought I would post up pictures so they would eventually show in a Google search for people with the same issue. I really feel that this must be a manufacturing defect and would like to hear whether anyone here actually had the lens damage covered by warranty.

Thanks.

Made that to spread the warning. I am really annoyed about this and perplexed as to LG making a camera lens that shockingly is able to break in normal safe daily use.

Why so many skeptics thinking this isn't a manufacturers defect? I don't even have this issue and I'm convinced it is a manufacturers defect.

It's already been admitted by LG that ir ports and mic ports are cracking from a manufacturers defect (Which I can almost guarantee is caused from to much heat)
And I'm 99% certain it's the same heat issue severely weakening the camera lens causing this to happen.
I know heat can cause hard substances like hard plastic and glass to crack because heat makes hard substances harder but more brittle.
I've seen heat crack a cpu core before, Which is made from glass. And if heat can split a glass cpu core in half then I can't see any reason why it couldn't crack the glass above the camera which is only a few millimeters away from 50c-80c temps

I was doing some testing with a custom kernel on my G3 the other day and realized the stock gpu frequency in my case is what is making my phone get hot, once underclocked it's as cool as a cucumber but it stutters and lags.
My final conclusion is, This phone "as is" needs a SD805 for the adreno 420 GPU so it can run at lower frequencys at the same performance but since we can't do that our only option seems to be a gpu underclock which needs root, bump and a custom kernel to accomplish and it will cause stutters and lags but seems to resolve all heat issues my G3 used to have.

The GPU on this phone at stock IDLES at around 60% of it's max gpu frequency just having the screen on NOT DOING ANYTHING, LG did this to ensure a "smooth" experience at these resolutions.

Phone Specs:
- D852
- Rin 1.7.0 Kernel
- CloudyG3 1.2 Rom

Hi. I think my g3 is a defective unit. My LG G3 overheated on the charger and made a hairline crack on my screen. ( just posting this here in case anyone has the same issue) LG set up an RA for me to ship the phone. I will provide a update when it reaches LG

Maybe your glass was abit bigger than normal, and with the heat it caused the plastic case around the glass to expand and the glass as well.
Maybe this made both put pressure on each other until one of then finally "gave up", hence the cracked screen.

But its just a theory
