If they refuse to cover it contact your country's customer protection agency. They will tell what to do.
Warrany applies if the defect was already present when purchased.
You've got a broken screen when you are unwrapping the parcel? Good!
That's a warranty case. I don't think a broken glass (and i think it's common believe that glass doesn't break by itself, does it?) after a period of use is a warranty case ar all.
