Is this a crack or an elongated scratch?

    Attached is a picture of my Al S3 from last Tuesday. When I returned home from class, I noticed the long mark on the screen. Would it be possible to buff it out, or do I really have to pay Apple $289 to fix the screen? At that point, is it better to just buy a new Series 3?

    You could do neither and just keep using it.

    As long as it works, it works.

    Even if it was the scratch, (which it is a crack in your situation), you would not be able to buff that out. Some scratches if they are minor, they can be concealed with a screen protector, but if you can feel it with your fingernail, there is nothing you can do.

    I thought the Ion-X Glass was supposed to be more resistant to cracking? The one or two times I've accidentally dropped it were on soft carpet, and, as I said in OP, I don't remember banging it against anything that would crack the screen.

    It's my luck this happened about a week after after I got a refund for AppleCare +, as I expected to sell the thing.

    Of course, it's also my luck that it's only two months old.
