... morePeople have this line of thought that a 1000 buck phone should come with 1000 buck's worth of durability. That's irresponsible thinking. What they should have is a sense of disciplined ownership that matches that steep price.
I have a note8 myself and i take triple the care i did with my previous phone, exactly because it's thrice the cost. And because of that, i haven't dropped my phone a single time for the 7 months i'm rocking it.

I read the complaint. It's a naive notion that Gorilla Glass is indestructible. It is the majority's fault that this trend of glass to glass design is encouraged because it's "premium". I think it's the opposite - plastic is a lot durable, and that is why case materials are made with hard plastic.
My last smartphone was the mighty Note 3, which had a plastic removable back. I had no unrealistic expectations that the glass surfaces are that strong. I got the Note8 for the updated functions of cameras, S Pen, processor, screen, memory size - not the curved screen, not the glass back, and not for the fact I'm stuck with a sealed battery.
Just get the right protective case.
Don't complain how glass breaks. Stop believing advertisements.

If you don't use a decent protective case then live with your decision when the consequences eventually catch up with you instead of placing the blame on others.

i read few reviews on the internet concerning same issue... the weakest point is the curved edge.

Must have been a long drop. I've dropped mine twice wth a Rhinoshield Crashguard bumper on. Glass surfaces still intact. I switch to my OtterBox Defender Case sometimes.
The thing is, phone cases with shallow raised lips are a no-go for me. Reason why i opted for two of the top protectors I could get, no matter how much more expensive they are compared to others.
Fragile Gorilla 5 Screen for Note 8, dropped once and the screen is cracked from the curved edge. (kindly to check similar cases on the internet)
after only one month of usage, screen is damaged !such a big disappointment its an expensive phone and you expect better quality, all previous models survived for years with
not even a single scratch on screen.
the shocking thing is that you use a Tempered glass screen protector (35$) with original Samsung Military rugged Cover(40$) and it helped nothing.
Original Screen replacement is very expensive around 350$ ! Samsung should seriously check the screen type adopted for this unique phone and test it again.there must be a way to compensate people who suffered from this offering free of charge maintenance and replacement of such fragile screen.
because of the curved screen edge, i highly recommend to use a full rugged cover for this phone and sure its not guaranteed that your phone will survive from any drop.
Kindly note that Samsung warranty does not cover cracked, scratched or broken screens.
such a big disappointment ... would appreciate any support... thanks

I can only say the Note8 is a good buy, I am using it since October last year.
MirzaSohail, 02 May 2018What to choose between Samsung galaxy s9+, Samsung galaxy note 8,and this thing p20 pro, I nev... moreThat depends if you think you will use the S-pen or not. If that feature seems like something you would use then the Note8 is the way to go. If not, the S9+ has so much to offer including a faster/newer processor, Oreo out of the box, stereo speakers and enhanced camera features. I have the Note8 and I think it's a fantastic device. It is the first Note that I've owned and enjoy using the S-pen for the Live Messages feature, translating foreign texts, creating GIFs, more accurate scrolling/texting. The camera are very good and I ported the Google Pixel camera software to have even more photo/video options. I don't know much about the P20 other than it's not available in the States which requires a 3rd party seller and questionable capability with carriers and that it is extremely expensive.
What to choose between Samsung galaxy s9+, Samsung galaxy note 8,and this thing p20 pro, I never use Huawei phones neither use iPhone although IPhone X also could be considered, but never use ios so don't know about experience,
