Now a day, almost all manufactures packaged device this way. That is the reason I always unbox on carpet floor while sitting down on the floor. If stuff came off unexpectedly it would land on the carpet floor. The problem with SF3 is, it is big and has some weight. There is not enough friction to hold it down while unboxing. Yes, you need to be careful while unboxing the SF3. I think someone reported here that he/she dropped the brand new SF3 while unboxing and broke the screen.
I feel like you were just trying to make me cringe every time you used the abbreviation "SF3." If so, GREAT SUCCESS!
It's the SP3.
