Just noticed my Gemini has developed a small hairline crack on the top edge of the display/lid plastic housing. Will try and post a photo.

No idea how this could occur, as I am very careful with my Gemini (always stored in a case and never dropped).

Has anybody else's Gemini suffered a similar fault?

Finally got round to taking a photo of the crack. Used my trusty Nokia 1520's camera! Makes you realise how crap the Gemini camera is.....

Hello,

here is a picture of where the cracks are located. Arrows point to the cracks.

I have hairline cracks in the exact same location. I didn't care about them until reading this topic.

Hello tpp,

the 'hairline cracks' I showed then are no problem at all, too. Though there seems to be one Gemini owner who reported that those cracks spread and split the cover.

What's problematic is cracks in the hinge between screen and keyboard half, which seem to be much less common, but may lead to a structure failiure, thus having the Gemini fall apart.

If you only observe the the cracks shown in my picture: no worries.
