480Euros, that's as much as buying a new Xperia Z.

A little bit cheaper than buying a new one here in Norway. The insurance company demanded it repaired because it was only 2 days old when i broke it

Re: Xperia z Screen Crack Tips

Like any glass, its most vulnarable part is the edges. My advice is to get a phone cover. At least, one that covers the sides. Having additional screen also helps.

Re: Xperia z Screen Crack Tips

Bumper cover should do it. But it's still good to have additional sceen protector. So tthat if there's any scratches, u can just peel it away and replace with a new one. =)

Usualy it's beacause somethign hit the edge of the screen, or phone is bent. The Z is raher thin but it is not rigid. Applying force can actually bent the screen slightly. The screen is durable enough to a certain degree to tolerate this. but excessive bend(stress) will definatelly cause it to crack. It is glass after all.

As for heat, i doubt that's the main reason. Even normal glass don't break from heat. They break when there's a sudden temperature change. From hot to cold or cold to hot very quickly. But even this apply to cheap glass(drinking glass). And Z is definately not made from cheap drnking glass.

Re: Xperia z Screen Crack Tips

So it is better to lock the phone when it becomes Hot ( warm) ? you say that there is a chance for the internal screen to crack even when the temperature falls down (when it is locked after a long use ) So what should we do to keep it without Cracks apart from adding physical enities .. ?

Re: Xperia z Screen Crack Tips

No. I mean normal glass will only crask when there's a high fluctuation in extreme temperature. Like heating the glass with fire, then putting it in ice cold water.
