Has anyone encounter any problems with the plastic screen of N73? I purchased one 2 months ago but a crack showed up at 1 o’clock position (somewhere around the right hand corner) 1 week afterwards. I took that to repair for 3 times but same results happened within 3days-1 week. Does anyone know what is the material of the plastic screen? I can see distorted images on the screen when I try to mirror it on any objects. Any reported problems on this manufacturing defect?
not experienced that so far.
All seems good. However, I would prefer a better wuality screen and the fascia seems a little plasticy for my liking.
Sorry couldnt help.
No! Or at least, not noticed for me...

The build quality in general is pretty poor in the N73 (see Steve's review). However, I haven't heard of any actually cracking.
The front fascia is made of pretty thin plastic though and flexes a lot when not on the phone. The screen surrounds / supports can also cause it to twist, which is where the distorted images are coming from.
Might be worth taking to a decent service centre and get them to open it up in front of you. If you live in / near London (UK) I can recommend a service centre which will do this.
