I am very keen on the Z2 as my first Sony phone but the reports I have read about Z1 phone screens randomly cracking on their own has me worried. How serious is this problem really?

Is this just the 0.1% of phones that the people are complaining about? Or is it more than that. I am assuming the screen used on the Z2 is the same as predecessors.

Screen on the Z2 is not the same as one on the Z1, and personally i think that cracking screen problem is weird, and i not believe it.

I know the technology behind the glass is different, but are you sure the glass itself is different?

You should really not worry about that "cracking" problem.

There's been a scientifically proven discovery that connected cracking screen phenomenon to wearing a very tight pair of slim chino jeans...

hehe yeah shatter proof screen will crack without ANY reason!
no reason but maybe some a**h*** sit on phone and then report nothing happened for warranty and etc.

think little bit logical! is it possible that a slim glass crack by itself without any reason? NO
so dragontile glass also won't crack by itself!

Lol.....yeah, that'd be because.......
Tight fitting trousers + contour of wearers butt = phone being bent/twisted into shapes that Sony never intended = dumb s**t user damage.......
As far as I know, nobody has produced a flexible smartphone yet....lmao

I never gave any credit to those rumors... Until today when the screen of my Z2 just cracked on me.
Phone was in my pocket, I left home for a walk and when I pulled the phone out of my pocket the backglass was completely cracked... I am positive that I did not hit anything or did anything unusual. Pretty passed that it happened to me on a week old phone which I got from Taiwan so no possibility to return/exchange under warranty (I am in the US).

Phone was in left front pocket of a loose fitting jeans. This is where I always keep my phone, have gone without problem for years with iPhone, Xperia S, Nokia Lumia 900... never had a problem. Back of phone is always facing outside.

I tend to have the phone there and keep my hands in my pocket when i walk - only thing I can see is that my hand put a little pressure on the back glass and caused the cracking as I am positive I did not it anything and never keep anything else but the phone in that pocket. This still seems to me like a design problem because there is no "unnatural" pressure or wrong use here for a cellphone. Back glass just cracked all over, there is no clear breaking point that would indicate a shock, just cracks on the entire surface of the back glass.
