i googled this the other day and if you look for the subject 'hairline fractures' or 'self cracking' in conjunction with the Xperia series, the topic still seems to come up. i don't know anyone besides me with a sony but i see a lot of shattered displays around which still seem to work. common feedback for the sony however indicates that as soon as the display is cracked, it can become unresponsive.

is that a design issue only they have for some reason?

No, pretty much any phone other than say a kyocera or panasonic toughpad it is fairly easy to crack the screen. If the digitizer is broken to the point where the electrical connection is lost, it won't work anymore.

My iphone already has a small crack in the bottom (not over the screen itself) no idea when or how it happened but unless you are looking for it you wouldn't even know it's there.

On the bright side, they finally fixed the calculator today with the release of iOS 11.2, which also fixes a major crashing bug that started appearing yesterday. :roll: http://tidbits.com/article/17659
