s6 edge scratchA report last week revealed that Samsung’s Clear View case for the Galaxy S6 did not provide users with the protection it promised.

According to an update from SamMobile, Samsung has since come forward and acknowledged the problem and stated that they are looking into this. It is unclear as to what will happen to users with scratched displays and if they are eligible for a return. Several XDA forum members have also confirmed that after contacting different branches of Samsung, the company is indeed acknowledging the problem at hand.

Now according to SamMobile who spoke to their local repairman, it seems that while Gorilla Glass 4 is a tough material, the top layer of the glass is a bit weak meaning that it is susceptible to being scratched which is very unfortunate. Now for those of you who have the Clear View case, your best bet is to place a screen protector now before any damage is done.

For those who are thinking about getting the Clear View case, perhaps you might want to hold off on your purchase for now until Samsung comes up with a solution for it. In the meantime have any of our readers been affected by this issue?
