There is mention of this in the thread on that topic. My MIC replacement wasnt as fortunate. But it doesnt have the wifi launcher reboot issue my MIK had.

I just found one of these hairline cracks on the side of my note today, when I took the case off to do a battery pull... sad day for my note

I have the same issue with my white note. There is no way this could happen since its between glass and metal. Undoubtably a flaw in the materials.

I was hoping that would have been the answer, because then it would have been easy to avoid it happening again. But it seems it's not the case and I will have to worry about it happening to my new one at some point too.

At least I get to test the theory that it only happens to the MIK models and not the MIC... :eyes crossed:

if it happened on a black phone, you probably wouldn't see it.

Notably, the whole "cracked" (in quotations because if it's similar to what was happening with the iPhones, it's not actually a crack.) Thing happened to a white calculator I owned, and to my sisters laptop, which has a white glossy frame. Needless to say, we were able to buff those "cracks" out. I've only seen this type of discoloration on white glossy products though. Must have to do with the manufacturing process (apple does source some products via Samsung as well...so I wouldn't be surprised at a similarity...not to mention all of the interconnects between different companies and manufacturers like Foxconn).

It's almost impossible to see anything in those photos though.

Can someone please post photos in a .zip @ full resolution? The only photos I've seen were of a note with a crack that was a perfect line in the display. It looked like a few dead pixels.

I'd like to help but really could use some HQ photos.

It sounds like a flaw in the clear coat. Which makes perfect sense, if you were able to buff it out.

I have this problem too. But the other day I was thinking when you snap the battery cover back on you have to push along the whole edge of where these cracks are showing up.
Just a thought

@jamesyboy

Its definitely not pixels since it is not part of the screen. The picture in the first post shows it very clearly but I think you need a larger perspective to see exactly where the crack is. When I get home this morning I will take some photos with my dslr and post.
