I have a Paperwhite screen which spontaneously - yes spontaneously cracked. What I mean by this is that it was not dropped, damaged or mishandled in anyway.
I know this because it happened as I was reading it - I literally looked away and looked back and there it was. It's obviously noticeable, as light shines out of the crack and there's a long shadow cast down the screen by it.
Now I've done a search and I've failed to find many cases of this happening, so thought I'd post this just in case I'm not the only one. I've uploaded some pictures to show what this looks like under different conditions.
My main concern now is relaying this to warranty, as they might consider it as damaged by me. The surrounding area is undamaged, I've also kept it in a case but I suspect this would be a difficult case to prove.
Anybody have any idea if Amazon will honour such a claim or have a similiar experience they could share, it is still under warranty I believe.
