This is actually total bullshit from Sales Manager Europe PocketBook.
If they sell it in EU they cover broken screens. It is the law. If it breaks in 6 months seller has to prove that break was caused by user or they have to replace it. Saying "screens only broke if mishandled" is not a proof and I am quite sure it is a lie. Even then they would need to prove it was mishandled by customer and not manufacturer, retailer, delivery etc.
If they refuse to cover it contact your country's customer protection agency. They will tell what to do.
