    my 3 year old dropped my nexus from about 1 foot and shattered the screen after only one week of owning it. I was able to claim it on my insurance for the 150$ deductible. Then after I got my second nexus it fell from my hoodie pocket and I tried to stop the fall and hit the ground so softly and the back of the screen broke so thats when I decided to get a cover

    I was shocked that the phone cracked on a fall from my bedside table. Horrible or LG and Google. Shame on them both for making a silly phone.

    Try dropping anything with a glass screen from your bedside table and see what happens to it.

    So it's been since early February and mine still remains uncracked. I use no case and haven't since day one. It goes in my pocket and has even been bumped while in there by my car door getting out.

    One of the nice things about Apple and iPhone, they are typically good for at least one courtesy replacement. Drop it again though and they most likely won't be so forgiving.

    Not always. My Grandson dropped his iPhone from about a 3 foot height, when it was 2 weeks old and the screen broke. He brought it to an Apple store and they offered to repair it for about $100 ( I think that was the amount).

    Some really thoughtful, intelligent responses on here. Others not so much. For those skeptics and knee jerk sarcastics, pray you don't drop your phone. And have a look at the amount of complaints from other nexus 4 owners for same issue.

    It doesn't matter in regards to warranty. Dropping a phone is the user's fault, not the manufacturer's. The best way to eliminate the potential of a back cracking/shattering is don't buy a phone with a glass back. The best way to minimize any glass, front or back, cracking is put some protection on it. No manufacturer is going to warranty physical damage due to a drop. If you are lucky, they may give you a courtesy repair/exchange.

    I think a decent case like the Acase will pretty much protect the back in a reasonable drop. For the folks that choose to use minimal protection like no case or a bumper, then the chances of the back breaking, like any piece of glass, are much better.

    That's why Apple quickly abandoned glass backs: It knew a reputation for fragility would deter some people from buying an iPhone.

    All phones still have glass fronts, so dropping them is still not a good thing to do, no matter what the back is made of. Would be interesting to know the ratio of screens versus back breakage.

    Beat this one I've dropped my s4 flat on its screen with a cover on that I paid 3 quid roughly off eBay both times not even a scratch anywhere on the screen. Thank god my cover has a big rim at the front that I'm assuming takes the shock of it falling screen first out rather than sending the shock through to the glass screen.

    My Nexus fell from my jacket pocket while kneeling down, fell onto concrete on the top edge.

    And....

    Aside from a scuff on the bezel, a-ok.

    My girlfriends has survived multiple drops. She eventually broke it today claiming she didn't drop it and doesnt know how it got their. My guess is she dropped it silly girl. Time to get her a dbrand back even though she wants me to replace the back -_-.

    I am convinced that these stories of people waking up in the morning with their screens or back broken on their N4, just dropped it and don't want to admit it.

    Why do people assume LG and Google should be liable for replacing phones that have admittedly been dropped?
    They never touted the N4 as a super durable phone to begin with. Use the phone carefully, and put a case on it if you're a clumsy fck.

    Someone asked a similar question here. I don't know if he got his problem solved, but hopefully the information can help you, too.
