Have noticed a similar trend on product review sites, for 5 star as well as one star reviews. Just one post and post date is the same as join date and these people are never to be heard from again.

Why does glass break ? either stress or a temperature differential.

Don't cool an overheated phone under the tap. It might 'self crack'.
It's interesting yeah...

I know many guys who had Xperia S, then Xperia Z/Z1 and now Z2 and are here on XDA for years...

No one is complaining for anything...

It's interesting to see that all problems are coming from (for us) new users...

I'm not trying to say they are lying, no, I'm sure that's all true but, obviously, they are doing things we don't.

I would never record 5-10 mins of 4K videos then test waterproof in cold water (I know someone who did that )

Lightbulb Device extremelly fragile

I let the device fall from a 10 cm height and it get screen cracked. An imperceptible cracked, but enough to touch stop working and start working on it's own.

So, warranty void and not this issue was not covered.

I'll fix it myself.

I bought the LCD/touch on ebay:

And the sticker tape adhesive to try to maintain the phone waterproof:

I believe that the process to replace the front glass is the same of the Z1 and help can be found in many youtube videos.  &item_name=vitucci&currency_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonat  ionsBF%3abtn_donateCC_LG%2egif%3aNonHosted

Let me add my Z2 to the mix as well. Check me out on Twitter @stublake13 and let me know on there if you have had this issue and your experiences with warranty so I can bombard Sony with them along with mine or do the same and just include me in your tweets to them.
