The XDA Developers community features quite a few cases of this problem, with over a thousand people complaining about it, on both the front and back of the phone. The Xperia Z suffered from similar issues, so it’s not exactly a premiere for Sony. Then a survey was started by an XDA user to assess the extent of the damage and the result was shocking.

Turns out that 25% of the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact owners who took part in the study had multiple issues with broken glass. Some of them meet a single crack horizontally, others vertically of even diagonally. 12% of the complainers on XDA reported multiple cracks and even spiderweb patterns with cracks. An user has even started a Facebook page for users with cracked screens, with a long list of comments and pictures included.

The main problem here is proving that the phones didn’t crack by being dropped…
