Here's section to email Google Play Support. I'd imagine you would choose the last option, general technical support question.

Sorry forgot the link and had to wait 5 minutes to edit: http://support.google.com/googleplay...807&page=ts.cs

When I dealt with them, the email I would always reply to was googleplay-support@google.com

And if Samsung doesn't want to cover it I can use my back flex as an excuse to force them to do so... Right?

Wow that sucks!

It's pretty sad that the gorilla glass isn't optically bonded like many other devices (MS Surface etc.), it's just a glass that's approx 1mm above the LCD screen (just air), if you press the glass you will see the glass touching the LCD

This thread is hilarious but I would like to just say that I had one of these in my LCD monitor and squashed it in the middle of the screen much to my dismay. Anyway I don't think they're ants but maybe Thrips. And it seems to be a common problem; see http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=bugs+in+lcd+screen.

It's an ant, I've seen them (the same kind) wandering around my house or when I leave something with sugar in a random place.

Ants are badass, ridiculously strong, and he probably just wiggled his way under/through whatever low pressure gasket/seal is in place for dust. This device is not air tight by any definition. He just wanted to get to the sweet candy jelly beans inside.

Ant penetration resistance should be added to every device spec and properly tested.
Youtube: "Xperia Z Official Ant Testing". "The Xperia Z is water resistant up to 1 meter for 30 minutes, and ant resistant up to 150 ants for 45 minutes. Results may vary with ant species and water purity."
