    Default How do you handle after dropping your phone?

    Especially when the damage is not that serious meaning a few dents and scratches.

    Do you simply ignore it and move on? Since insurance seems to be popular here I always see it mentioned will you use it to get a brand new unit?

    Are you like me with a serious problem. LOL

    First I wasn't exactly thrilled about it when I upgraded to the S4 but a few weeks later I hand it on my hand as I got out of my car and I hit it against the the door. There was a very tiny chipped and couldn't stand it that the next day I put it up for sale.

    Anyways the buyer couldn't believe it where he could barely see the chipped.

    I hate it that I'm like this and worst I continue to go naked until a few months ago when I dropped my 64GB iPad Air, which I also sold to my boy. Lesson learned and now I'm back to using cases for my S5 and Z2. The good thing is both cases were free when I upgraded.

    It tears some people up when they drop and damage a phone! Others like my nephew wouldn't know how to act without a broken screen on his! If your going to be picky you are also going to have to be rich!

    I would totally freak out if I dropped my phone. Especially since I don't have a case on it.

    I did drop a previous phone before on my front concrete porch.It was probably the worse drop I have had to date.There was just a small nick.I didn't have it in a case, it was soon forgot about.It wasn't noticeable unless you looked for it.The only other time I dropped my phone was on carpet

    My daughter likes throw stuff around including my phone. Doesn't bother me anymore. I have a case and tempered glass screen protector and worse case insurance

    I've only dropped my Note 2 once. Was careless getting out of the car at home, it slipped out my hand and hit the bottom of the car door then landed on the concrete garage floor. Only damage was a small chip on the edge of the silver trim near the headphone jack, the only exposed area while it's in its Monaco vertical leather pouch. Whew!

    I was really upset with myself for a while though because I paid full retail for it to keep Verizon unlimited data and have always been OCD about protecting and taking very good care of my electronics (no insurance because of it). Thought about trying to fix it with some kind of paint or nail polish, but ended up just leaving it. Don't really notice it much anymore. But when I do, it's a big reminder to always be mindful of taking good care of my precious!

    Yeah. If its not broken I consider it just wear and tear of my phone...unless the screen is cracked. I absolutely cannot walk around with a cracked screen.

    I usually cradle the device and ensure that everything will be okay. Then, I can't take my eyes of the mark and the device is forever damaged in my eyes. I save up my money instead of paying my bills and get a new one....

    No really.. I just deal with it because I'm usually broke. Womp.

    I use Nokia so I generally apologize to the ground then crawl into the crater it formed to get it out.

    I get more worried about damage to the internals. Like, after a drop if the touch screen is working right, if there's performance issue, and things like that. I always use a case

    I drop my phone all the time. A few weeks ago it went falling down my stairs at home. Usually, not a nick. Then just the other day I was sitting at a table outside, dropped it about 2 feet to the ground and the face broke. It's not that noticeable even though it's a L shaped crack at the top of the screen. I have insurance but I don't want to be without a phone for however long it will take so I'll just deal with it until Sept when I can upgrade.
