I read about the whole no mrtal in pocket as it can damage your phone. But my pockets are empty and notice on the back on the ce016 number there a scratch or hairline crack. I'm always super careful with my phones. And usually get a otterbox case. However since there isnt a case for it yet, referring to defender series i been rocking it solo. If i were to put my nail on the area and rub run it over I can feel it. Anyone else had this issue? If i were to guess maybe half a inch kind of curve.

Good news is that you'll be getting a new one soon. I would buy a clear protector for the back (and front maybe).
I set my phone face down on a table and now there is a tiny scratch near the front camera. Nothing major, but noticeable. I already ordered a dront and rear clear protector combo for when I do the recall exchange.

Mine fell out of my pocket sitting on a chair from a foot and it's now cracked. My note 4 would of and definitely has survived this kind of fall. I took it out of the case since we are getting new phones, just to carry it without a case for awhile. The new one will def be in a case 24/7. It shouldn't of cracked so easily.

My day old Note5 fell from 2 feet and landed half on grass, half on the patio. The top back corner hit the patio. It spider webbed the top 1/3 of the phone. The Note 4 was plastic. Any glass phone is going to be fragile. The good news was Samsung replaced the back for $75 including shipping out of warranty.
