They really should have realised this long before they ever got sent out to the stores. But at least they recalled them to fix them. Not just offer stickers . . .

I've dropped my S2 nastily a couple of times - virtually not a scratch! But at least I had it for over 6 months before my first drop.

Hopefully for SGS3's sake this is just one of those unfortunate & rare cases.

You would hope Apple eventually wake up to this after all the broken screen & backs they've replaced over the years!

bye bye believe me u will hear a lot of this soon!! the glass is too week the distance between the glass and the body is a millimeter so if u drop it in the corner and is bye bye galaxy sIII .The back cover is too smooth specially when u are taking photos is very easy to lose the grip the galaxy 1 and 2 did not have this problem ...i wonder what is samsung thinking ..maybe they think nicer feel ,forgetting the safety of the phone after all this toy in not cheap and i will think u need to thank me for working you about this and by getting or not i sacrifice my phone so others can enjoy theres longer than me i am sad there is no part for it now i need to wait 60 days maybe for a new glass or longer and ones opened it will never be the same yeah u can see i really love this new toy is amusing but super delicate so fine call me butter fingers insult me but if this will save ur phone don't forget to thank me

I got S1 & S2; I care about Samsung but not blindly. I'm not closed minded about what other brands have to offer or the impact they have on Samsung.
