    Hi All,

    I dropped my Note 4 a few times in the past, with no issues. However, on vacation last week, it fell only a few inches (perhaps on its edge), screen went dark. I pressed down on the screen, evenly across, luckily it came back on, but with pink hues. Next I pulled the battery out, once again pressed down evenly across the screen, it came back to its original state!

    I'm sure theres some damage internally, should i continue to use the phone, more cautiously, with a TPU case now... everything seems normal? or should I get it replaced, I have ATT warranty?

    Appreciate some thoughts and feedback.

    Warranty wouldn't cover that, but insurance would. Make sure you are talking about the right thing. If you send it in under warranty and they fix it they may charge you. Insurance would cover it with a deductible.

    It's possible that you loosened the connection that caused the problems, probably a cumulative effect of multiple drops, the last being the one that pushed it over the edge. If you can't get it looked at, I would definitely put a case on it BTW.

    It sure is. I'm interested in the clear one. Any idea if there is any texture (grippy) or is it smooth? I like the grip of silicone.

    Based on the description in this pic I'd say yes.

    Based on that picture, it looks like the camera protrudes from the back. This may be a no-go for me.
