GoPro Hero 7, screen glass itself broke.

A few days ago, I bought a gopro hero 7.
Yesterday when I closed the frame, the glass on the display broke. I had a camera in my hands, I never hit anywhere, never fell.
I noticed that the screen is slightly convex at the top and it probably caused a crack in the screen when closing the clip.
I bought it in Germany, where I live. Especially for holidays in Tenerife. It broke down on the first day of vacation. After returning I will give back the warranty in the store. However, I am afraid that they will say that it is my fault.
Did anyone have something like that?

Re: GoPro Hero 7, screen glass itself broke.

@peppyflash628, sorry to hear about what happened. Retailers may have different return/replacement policies, thus I'm unable to attest if the incident will be covered or not under their warranty. Anyhow, you may also refer to this article for GoPro's Warranty information (EU).
