    Went to take a pic with my 8x just now and noticed the preview was cloudy. I went to clean the lens and noticed it was cracked.

    It hasn't been dropped. I carry it in my front pocket, screen in. The only thing I can imagine is I leaned against a table edge when it was in my pocket.

    Bummed as it's otherwise perfect.

    Anyone know if this is going to be a major deal to replace?


    EDIT: I think I know what caused this. Yesterday I suck the dust out of the earpiece speaker grill. I think the vacuum in the case was enough the suck in and flex the glass to the point where it cracked. Don't suck on the speaker grill. I know it doesn't sound right, but it's just too coincidental.
