    Default Didn't last long, RAZR HD MAXX destruction

    I gave one of our sales guys his new razr hd maxx yesterday morning. When he was getting in his car to leave, this happened, less than 6 hours after handing it to him. $700 down the drain for a new phone.

    Sorry to hear that dude. I've insured my iPhone5 and the next Android I get (after current XperiaS) I will insure as well.

    Not much consolation I know but all the best.

    It's not mine, just sucks that our company has to spend $$$ on a new one. I put him back on his Droid2 for now.

    We have 35 lines with Verizon, if I had insurance on every line, we'd pay for a new phone every 2-3 months but we typically only 'lose' one/year, so insurance is a waste of money for us in the long run.

    I'll probably try to get this one fixed for a few hundred $ and place my razr maxx with it until upgrade time in September.

    Describe how the phone got broken.

    Do you think a decent case might have saved it?

    He just dropped it getting in his car, from waist level. I'm really surprised it did this much damage. It wasn't a glass hit, but the bottom right corner was pushed up. The chassis is bent, not just broken glass/bezel.

    That is a bummer. I had a D2G for 2 years always used a particular grip with it whenever I was handling it. I never dropped it. I've decided to always handle the Razr Maxx HD with the same 'vise grip'. Thumb along one long edge, three fingers along the other long edge, index finger along the top edge. When I put the phone in my front pants pockets I use the same grip. Especially when I'm exiting my vehicle. Open the door, grab the phone in the 'vise grip', stand up and slide it into my pocket.

    He broke the phone. Why are you/the company responsible for getting him a new one?

    The horror! It's almost 2013 and people who buy expensive phones don't have the sense to cover them up with protective cases and screen protectors?

    He was headed straight to a store to get a case, this was the first time it had been out of the office building. I don't buy cases for employees because everyone has different preferences.

    Work in a corporate environment for awhile, you'll understand.

    Your "sales guy" should only have the cheapest phone VZW offers. Oh, and take the cost of the phone out of his paycheck. I've had my HD MAXX since 11/06 and use that baby " bareback" as it should be used. Love showing it off against my brother's OtterBox'ed covered iPhone 5.

    Heh. Finding staff is hard enough, docking their pay is not usually a good move, unfortunately.

    That's unfortunate. I haven't dropped mine yet but from what I can tell, the Razr Maxx HD appears to be more delicate than my old naked Droid X which I dropped onto concrete more than once with minimal damage.
