This guy is sooo in tune with all things Note. If he hasn't heard about it, you must be lying...or drunk.


I'd look into the warranty thing. That's definitely a defect.

Im also proud of the little dents and scratches as long as I caused them and I can get the phone up and working again.

But i can never defend the build quality which is less than satisfactory.

Well, Samsung uses "cheap plastic" but then again look at Apple - most expensive anodized aluminum and 1/3 of iphones 5 came scratched out of box.

What i'm trying to say... im just like you, i treat my gadgets like eggs, but we're talking about things we use all day every day - they will get damaged no matter how you try so its best to get over it. Anyway i think your case is not very common.

I checked mine too. I got it in August 2012. Im pretty careful with it also. Got a case for it too. I found one of those cracks on the right side. To be honest..its covered with my case..and its not on my screen...Its not a big deal.

I've got a black note and I've dropped it a couple of times, no cracks.

My Mrs has a white note and hers does have cracks the same as the OP, but then she does have Teflon hands hahaha

Do I have to remind all users to be courteous when posting. If your going to post something don't post in a way that is demeaning to others.

If you don't have this minor issue then great. But to flame someone who does is just pathetic. Thanks for drawing attention to yourselves, I'll now keep an eye out.

defently you are right
i bought mine in december 2011 and in first 3 weeks it got peel at the silver frame and took it to sammy first they refused to change it and repair it and said it falled but eventually after a threat of making them aproblem they accepted to change the back housing and waited 3 months so they repair it and was never satisfied with the build quality . i kept it with me but refused to go for sammy again i bought an htc one x.
though i took care of my note and always kept it in a cover i got that problem. hox never in cover felt from me twice at ground and looks almost new

the problem is not being a slave to phone, the problem is when buying a phone with 655 euro you should get a good build quality and good support. if it felt from your hand and broken its not your fault but if you handle it with care that is.
i had an htc hd2 since 2009 and used by my own children without housing and screen protector comparing that with sammy diffenetly a good quality phone
thank you
