    Lol, stop saying that phones don't give scratches by themselves... It is again near volume buttons, and definitely it's the place, where everything started from. There were already people with the same problems. It's 1+ mistake, but not users. Useless glass back implementation decision.

    i did see some photos from other phones with cracks on the same position. sure OnePlus makes a wonderful device but mistakes happen.

    maybe this crack comes twist motion

    Well at least this taught you how to treat your phone. Perhaps you treat the next one better.

    That's happened in similar situations on the glass to 2 or 3 people on the OnePlus Reddit sub, so maybe it's a similar point of failure?

    even I read that... told the same at the service centre, they said it's not in the community so they cant testify the same.

    That's weird.

    Even seeing this link https://www.reddit.com/r/oneplus/comments/8xc43m should be enough for them to replace it for you free of charge, since there's clear examples of it happening repeatedly.

    But it is only 3 or so cases, so maybe they're deeming it not widespread enough.

    Get a new one at around INR ₹1600 + 500 for service. Don't know about Silk white edition.

    get a cool skin applied on it instead as the back panel may get cracked again

    not a great idea to build phones out of glass. Glass brokes even if it is strong, but is it not only with OP, most of the newer brand androids uses glass, they say it makes wifi signal better

    it does make WiFi and phone signal a lot better, my previous non glass phones never got a decent signal in our house, the op6 however gets a decent 4g signal. just treat it carefully, it's glass :)

    There would have been a lot of stress put on the phone by trying to cycle with his phone in his front pocket. The pressure point was most likely caused by something in the same pocket as his phone. I cycle and I now know to never put anything in my pockets, the stress is just too great.
