If you have any of the following devices from Sony listed below, then good news for you. As pointed out by droid102 in his thread on XDA, and seemingly pseudo confirmed on Xperia blog, Sony will be treating certain cracks in phones as IN Warranty exchanges/replacements.
Xperia Z (C66xx/L36h/SO-02E)
Xperia ZR (C55xx/M36h/SO-04E)
Xperia V (LT25x, SO-01E, SOL21)
Xperia UL (SOL 22)
Xperia Z Ultra (C68xx, XL39h)
If you your device is in the list above, and your screen happens to look like the images below, then Sony it seems, will treat it as an IN-warranty replacement.

If your screen looks like the devices pictured below, then you’re out of luck. The devices below show obvious signs of abuse and WILL NOT be replaced under warranty.
Should your phone fit the descriptions above, do try and contact Sony about getting it fixed under warranty. Please let us know in the comments below should you get it fixed or not, and what hassles you may have given during the process.
Until more people come forward with confirmation of the exchange/replacement process, please take this with small regard as to its validity.
