Broken corner around the display of the Galaxy S4

Since we have the Galaxy S4 we have found out something strange. We never dropped the Galaxy S4 self but around the corner of the screen there are some open sides. Our question do you have the same problem or are we the only one with this factory build mistake? Research by our repair center found out that a screen of the Galaxy S4 will cost €140 ex VAT. Which is very expensive but OK OLED panels aren’t cheap to. If you might think why did you ask for this? Simple because Samsung gives repair centers directly  display units with new corners. This is one faster and two easier to fix.

Let us know by a comment below if you have the same problem.

Unfortunately I have the same problem. Starting two weeks ago the cracks appeared one by one and now are eight. What is very strange is the fact that three of them are in the exact same position like the one`s in your above pictures. I bought the phone two months ago and never dropped it till now, so I cannot figure the reason for this cracks.
I would appreciate if you would tell me if this issues might be fix under warranty.

I have the same problem in 2 places near the volume button like in the first picture and i never dropped it, what is the solution for it, and why is it happening like that?

That’s what happened with plastic bezel if it gets heated or pressed just enough. The stupid bezel should be metal and it should be thicker, the S4 display corner is just too narrow and only leaves a small space for the bezel. Stupid designer must have never thought about it, all they care is just the cosmetic sides, too bad it’s not the prettiest phone. I personally hate metal coz it would feel cold in your arm and on your cheek but come to think of the durability i’d prefer metal, at least for the bezel.

i have the similar problem with my s4.but the crack isn’t around the’s on the right of my s4,between the on/off button and back cover.its a tiny crack(1 mm)i’ve never dropped it before.its almost invisible and i dont care the crack but on /off button seems effected because of this crack,when i press the button it goes deeper to its hole and u dont feel the click my opinion its the best phone in the world,but they should do the corners more solid.(like aluminium alloy or something like this)my phone is made in china.

I have 9500 in Vietnam, and this one have no problem.

My S3 had that problem with 3 months old.
I send it to warranty and they said it was from use and i had to pay 180€ of repair.

And now with 10 months old it is in that same condition.

I love the phone and it works perfectly but the build is cheat.

I am ok with the plastic body.. But not with Samsung’s Rim they put on every phone. The paint on my Note 2 rim came off and it looks terrible. If Samsung cannot produce quality rims, why not just remove the damn rim.

My Note 2 is the N7100 version and appears to have a metal rim. The reason I’m saying that is because before I bought a protective cover last year I kept it for two months with no cover and you can see my abuse on the device. The rim has scratches but it still remains hard and looking metallic. I know the S3 and S3 Mini have a plastic rim we own them as well. South Africa

Agree.. but scratches!! they look terrible. White material below the silver paint gets visible.

5 out of 10 note 2′s I see have these ugly scratches on the rim, rest of the phone is always in almost perfect condition.

The only difference I’ve noticed is that some photos of Note 2 on the net seem to have SAMSUNG hard printed on the back cover. On my phone its just ink printed.

nope.. nothing sort of there on my S4 either..
Mine’s international version.. India

There’s no need to change the screen, only the back/bezel. Unlike the SIII. The S4 is like the Note II, bezel and back inner casing are one set.
