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.
