Default [Q] Plastic Side crack

Hello,
I have noticed a few days ago a crack on the side just above the stylus house. I never dropped the phone and it is fully protected by a leather case.
Any one had such bad experience and how managed with ¨samsung"

Most cracks happen often due to pressure exerted onto the device.

I can't point any reasons out, but you could have hit it against something hard in your pocket, or sat on it. As Samsung adores the plastic material, this is prone to happen.
Problem with ROMs? Try this. Still no? Ask me on Google+!

It is a problem even on the previous models. I just found my S3 has a crack like that next to the charging port.

Not on mine. Been using it for more than a year and it's still perfectly fine. Probably manufacturing problem

Default Annoying but wait and Samsung

Thanks for your messages.

I opened a ticket at Samsung to see what they are going to say.

Cheers

I showed mine with the same crack to Samsungs Repair Center and they agreed to a repair free of charge.
Try it!

This can also happen due to rapid temperature changes and strain.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

This is not the first time I see someone complaining about bezel crack, you either live with it and ignore it or try Samsung repair, good luck.
