AW: Defect - Plastic around the screen cracking with light use.
But I don't need the display. Raised edge is the part of the display not of the middle bezel.

Yes, the bezel part comes bundled with the actual display/digitizer assembly which is kinda expensive to replace.

It's difficult to say if those parts are original or not, you'll have to trust the seller I guess.

Cnn.cn is a good place to buy OEM parts in my experience.

Tapatalking on my n7000

"until you get a new one" Have you considered the deflated trade in value caused by this issue?
This would make a substantial difference to an otherwise pristine phones value.

I've had my white GNote 1 International since 2012 February and have never once dropped the phone (and it's been caseless as well). 7 micro cracks around the raised plastic around the digitizer/screen. I think due to some flex, especially when I put my phone in my back pocket, has caused it to get these cracks. Apparently the black/blue phones do not have this issue (looked at my friend's and his does not have this issue, and he has dropped it twice.

What sucks is that I'm in the US and even if I Samsung did cover this, since I have an international Note, Samsung USA won't cover it.

I love my Note 1, so much so I have a Note 2 from Sprint. My white Note 2, because it does not have a raised plastic rim around the screen, does not have cracking issues, a good move by Samsung to correct the problem.

Maybe I'll just get a Gelaskin to make the phone more nicer looking.

Thanks for the reference. I just purchased the front and back casing set. Was pretty cheap. I know i have already bought it, but does this mean i will get the silver bezel part?

My white Note also has cracks, two specifically, but I'm more bothered by the silver finish coming out. Makes the phone looks real old.

I don't use a case though... Because it adds too much heft imho

Just an update on my Note 1. It now has 5 micro cracks.
Setting my eyes on the HTC One (all aluminum) as my next phone.

Well, I rather have cracks on my device than metal stink on my hands... LOL

Cheers!
