    While working under my car. I accidently pressed my hand on my S4 while lifting myself back up. Stupid me for leaving my it on the ground.

    Anyways, now I have a hairline crack across the upper screen, going slightly upward from the left to right edge. It's mostly noticable when the screen is off. It has to be under the top layer as it's still smooth to the touch. Everything working just fine.

    Should I worry much? Cause I don't plan on getting another phone until spring or summer.

    If it still works it means the actual digitiser is fine so you shouldn't have anything to worry about aside from aesthetics and less resale value.

    Only thing I'd worry about is a hard hit or any type of drop causing the screen to crack or shatter.

    My last three Galaxies have been cracked to hell and back and work fine.

    Good to hear, thanks. Trying to hold on to this another 6 months.
