    Default Dropping your Nexus

    Anyone drop their Nexus yet? I just dropped mine for the first time on a concrete floor at Starbucks. No case. Aside from a few scratches at the top by the earpiece there's no real damage that I can see. I certainly near capped myself though!

    I should probably add that, ironically, after dropping the phone I got the 4.2.2 update. :-P

    I would consider that the best stroke of good luck this year and order a case tonight.

    I've dropped mine naked twice from shoulder & waist height down to solid tile floor.
    No damage whatsoever - no nicks, scratches, dents, cracks, nothing.

    I've only dropped my phone once on wood floor at about knee height. My heart dropped to see it fall onto the floor since I spent all my savings on the phone. Luckily, no damage whatsoever.

    I live in Canadia so shipping from the states takes a while. I've already ordered the Ringke Fusion Hybrid; just waiting for it to get here. Estimated date of delivery? February 27 to March 7, lol.

    All this talk of dropping reminds me that I need to get my extended warranty and accidental damage protection from Square Trade. Thanks to American Express and Square Trade, I only have to buy my devices once. Highly recommended. No connection to them other than just a satisfied customer.

    I haven't dropped mine yet but I do have a few random scratches on the chrome bezel that I just noticed. Not sure how I got them since the phone has been in a case since day one and only took it out of it a few days ago. Since running naked with the phone it's only ever been in my pocket, on my bed and on my mouse pad at work. Kinda bothered by things that scratch without anything happening to it.

    Dropped mine from a grand old height of one foot onto a thick pile carpet. Luckily I was wearing sturdy underwear at the time.

    Had my Nexus 4 since late November and knock on wood haven't dropped it once. I'm very careful with it, also have the official bumper on it so it doesn't slide on flat surfaces like some report the naked phone does.

    I didn't drop my because I'm still waiting to have it!

    Anyway, I already look for some cases, but I really love the phone without any protection!
    I already look for some store to buy nexus parts in case of accident and I found this one



    This is the portuguese LG webstore and they have nice prices!

    Hi all,

    I dropped my Nexus 4 from a height of about 1.5 feet (onto a hard surface) and this happened.



    Does anyone know if this is easily fixable? Handset still works with no problems.

    I had this same problem one time I was charging my phone and I left the room for a few minutes and the screen became like that when I came back to check it. The solution I had was to just turn the phone off and back on and the screen fuzz thing went away but I couldn't find an answer as to why the screen became like that in the first place.

    I've dropped mine twice, both over carpet floor. Although the second time was OVER carpet, it didn't land on carpet. Just my luck I had my longboard sitting on my floor and my n4 landed right on the edge of my longboard. I was pretty sure the back was shattered and it took me 5 minutes to build up the courage to pick it up. Luckily it wasn't damaged at all, and now I use a case all the time.

    That's your perception, but it would be false. I'm just a customer. I guess I wrote that post like an advertisement. Sorry, I didn't mean it to come across that way.

    I am planning to never drop my phone. I know that sounds unrealistic but I don't use it nearly as often as most. I'm really never more than 100 feet from my tablet.
