boy i'm lucky. purchased my arc 27'th june (over 4 months now), still not a single crack, typicaly near the sensor... just a tiny bump on the upper left corner, couse i acidently dropped it 2-3 times

for those who have cracks on their arc, when did you guys started notice it ?
since the day you purchased it? or after sometime ?
did you guys check it when you purchased it ?

I noticed it after 2 months... I started checking it since I read it on the forum. Sure there was no crack when I bought it since I couldn't find a crack first time I checked it

It'll crack again, so just leave it untill se fixed the issue
My crack is "done". Doesn't grow anymore and after sometime it dosn't bother anymore.

If you have this crack and would like the front cover replaced you should contact your local support team for more info. Now days a improved front cover is being used.

The Arc S doesn't have the house cracking problem.
