You are an **incredibly** good cameraman - someone with the same attention to detail as me :)

Have you sent these videos to Orange? I'd do so.

Thanks, I'm using a cheap FoxFoto Macro Filter Kit to film this close.

I've not shown it to Orange/EE yet. I thought I'd give them a chance to repair it first.

I wanted to record evidence that everyone can use to argue their point that the plastics are somehow duff.

I hate to think of all the thousands of people who will be convinced by store support that they somehow dropped their phone.

Or worse, the kids too scared to tell their parents their phone has a problem, because they are afraid they will get blamed.

My friend who bought my San Diego from me, says the side of the bezel which has the fracture in it, has now opened right up (he showed me via Skype) and the screen is coming away from the cracked bezel. What a piece of JUNK! LOL!

The return for repair bag arrived so mine is in the post now. I'll let people know if they do indeed repair it!

Just time for one last video to show you that 5th crack propagated all the way across the bezel.

I guess the reason for cracks is heating i.e thermal expansion..

No, the cause of the cracks is rubbish materials used in the casing. Don't over-think it. :)

When you send an iPhone/iPod/iPad in for "repair", they issue you a brand new device, every time without fail. They may *call* them refurbished or the service "repair", but believe me - they're brand spanking new, in every single instance, without question. I suspect this is what has happened here. We live in the days of wasteful companies and disposable technology - I cannot imagine for one second that this has been repaired.

Enjoy your lives, enjoy your phones, don't worry about me - do you think I sit online all day, worrying about you or what you are thinking?

If you don't like what I say, vote with your abstinence :)
