Samsung acknowledges that the Clear View case might scratch the display of your Galaxy S6, S6 edge
Last week, we passed on the news that some users are having the displays of their Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge units slightly scratched, with the culprit reportedly being dirt and debris nestled between the display and the front flap of the Samsung-made Clear View case.

Indeed, both devices come with Gorilla Glass 4.0 displays, but small debris and sand grains are still an arch-enemy that causes a lot of trouble.

While you think that your shiny new Samsung flagship is safely resting in your pocket, shielded from the outside world, hard debris create small, yet visible scratches are being formed as the flap of the case moves against the display. But it's not only the display itself that takes all the damage: the home button is not immune to ugly scratchings as well.

As SamMobile reports, Samsung is looking into the reported issue, acknowledging its existence. Meanwhile, a number of users over at XDA's forums are also describing that they've contacted different branches of Samsung and were told that the company is indeed aware of the issue and is currently taking its time to come up with a timely fix or a compensation for the affected parties.

If you own a Galaxy S6 or an S6 edge as well as a Clear View case, your best course of action will be to take some extra care for your device in order to prevent any small abrasive materials from manifesting their existence by scratching your display.
