Also, accidents do happen (as I have dropped my phone a few times) and I want to offer you a piece of advice. Every time I drop my phone I stick my foot out so that my shoe lessens the impact of the fall (this does require fast reflexes) I've dropped my S3 on my shoe about 3 times now, and not a scratch to this day. I hope you find this piece of advise useful, and remember be careful with your device.
I was leaning it on a flat surface in landscape position, and it fell down screen first, so it was not even a drop! Like a hatch closing really! Yes I will ASAP start guarantee discussions, as I believe there must have been a weakness in my particular handset
By the way I'm using a spigen slim armor on my phone, but no screen protector.
