There is no 'crack' with OLED. They BEND. So, maybe if you sneeze so hard and your snot is so cold it flash-freezes the plastic in the screen and then the impact of the sneeze (which will be at an angle and gale-force of course) causes it to shatter... Maybe THEN it'd crack.
And if you wiped the dust off with sandpaper connected to a power drill while you happen to have some REALLY bad twitches you might crack the screen (although you might want to see about getting Mr. Superman upstairs to sneeze some of his icy snot on it first to make it easier to crack).
Of course, though, it is a Sony product so it might just crack for the heck of it (especially when placed near livingrooms and bedrooms).

Either way - why all the hating on an incredible product? Why would you not be happy that tech is allowing such unbelievably thin displays?
Nah, they'll just print this stuff on plastic which will allow it to bend (you know, like how they've been saying they will for the past eight years...
No reason to make it larger than it needs to be until you need a mounting surface (a place to put the thumbtack when you go to hang it on the wall, or a surface to attach the glue to for the OLED wallpaper.) or if you have a mobile device that needs to keep certain constrains (a laptop's display screen could roll or fold up into the back of the device as well as a model with a very small lid, phones could follow the same pathway most surely).
The only OLED screens that will be able to crack will be the ones printed onto windshields and windows for HUDs and whatnot. Cheers!
