Looks like there was some truth to the reports after all:
"Galaxy S20 owners who feel the same way and happen to have had their camera glass breaking are encouraged by Hagens Berman to fill out a form on their website. Assuming that Hagens Berman or any other firm obtains a settlement, the court will decide a reasonable fee to be awarded to the legal team for the class."
maybe just like Xiaomi MiNote10, there was a time Samsung came up with the idea to let the 108MP camera loose in order to save battery, and then it's lens got contact with the camera glass?
on MiNote10 i can shake the phone and i can literally hear the camera hitting on something, but doesn't sound like glass, on the S20Ultra it does make some sound too, but way less.....guess they decided to leave the magnetic field on to hold the camera lens in place;
i see no other reason why the glass would crack on it's own
I believe it to be all S20 Ultra 5G's. Probably explains why amazon have been selling them off for £699 the past couple of months lol
Note 20 ultra owner here. Bought phone from Samsung a month or so ago. Noticed the glass covering the lens had broken today. I was using the zoom last night. This is still an issue, so anyone thinking of getting a Samsung, don't.
Happened a week ago to my S20+ 5G, which was a US G9860 model. Perhaps we should have a class action here to get Samsung to own up to the issue and address it. Seems to me beyond coincidence that so many have experienced this with no obvious precipitating factor.
