    Don't drop your phone on concrete and you'll be fine. You're lucky the damage wasn't worse.

    Yeah just had my hands in nitrile gloves changing oil in a pump. Took them off for a text and that powder made my Kevlar back like ice. Slipped right out..

    But damn man. I'm blown. My i4 took a couple hundred tumbles and it didn't get chunked like this.. I'm depressed

    You drop your phones a couple hundred times? Law of averages says you were LONG overdue for damage.

    Yeah man.. my iPhone I beat the hell out of. Not purposely of course. But working in a powerplant.. is rough on phones.

    Coal dust can scratch screen..example
    Dirty fingers on screen.. coal in pocket.. phone moving around. Fly ash is extremely fine.

    Waking into valve stems.. in pocket..
    Working on pumps or heat exchangers using body as leverage phone in pocket.

    Sitting at table phone rings grab it falls on ground..

    Buddy sent me a text today and went to check it and fell to ground..

    My iPhone has fell off the microwave charging someone bumped into it..
    Getting in and out of work truck leaving it on lap.

    There's hundreds of things I can think of that's happened.

    Definitely sucks on the first drop, Ive always used a thin case if possible. Any 1-3 dollar ones on ebay will work.

    That's too bad I wouldn't call it fubared though. But what happened to the metal there near the headphone jack? Is it really metal? That's a weird effect for metal to show. Maybe the corners are just chrome-painted plastic?
