LG G3 customers having issues with cracks in microphone area

micro-1

If you’ve got an LG G3, you might know exactly what I’m talking about — or you might find out pretty soon.

It appears that G3 customers from all over the world are having issues with the microphone area cracking. It’s becoming a pretty common issue, so we expect that LG as well as the carriers know about this already and are prepared to give out new devices to those who have had the issue with their device.

Hit the break for photos to see what we mean.

If this is an issue with all G3′s, then LG is going to have to tweak the issue at the factory level, because it wouldn’t make sense to continue mass-producing a device that has issues with parts of it cracking inexplicably.

    Huh. That’s interesting. Mine doesn’t have anything like that.

    The question is whether this has an impact on the phones structure itself. A minor crack on the bottom where the plastic is is a small negative, especially when this phone has so many positives… Yet, its battery is also bringing it from being such a godly phone. :(

    Yep and it spreads to screen too…lucky hasn’t messed with the touch component yet and has stayed local to that area, But very glad to hear this wasn’t my fault somehow.

    Is the crack somehow related to heat generated QI charging causing the “frame” and other plastic to become brittle and crack?

    I have kept my LG G3 inside a case, a Unicorn Beetle, from day 3 and I see no signs of a crack. I have felt the phone heat up from time to time. I will keep an eye out for any cracks in the future.
