    Default Nexus 5 destroyed

    I slipped on some Ice on the stairs. I had the phone in my back pocket. I had the supcase unicorn bumper and a screen protector on. The case was USELESS. It was a pretty hard fall directly on the phone, so I knew something was going to be broken, but I didn't expect the phone to be bent.

    Dude that sucks. Hope you paid for it with an American Express. I believe if you damage something within 90 days of purchasing it, you can file a claim and get your money back!

    Wow. That sucks. That is why I always pay for a super protective case and screen protector and leave it in the front right pocket (a bit OCD ). It's never fun when a simple accident ends up breaking a well loved gadget. Glad to hear your okay though. That's a plus, right?

    I don't think even a metal phone would have survived that... aluminum IS bendy, you know? So unless they start making phones out of steel, you better avoid falling on your **** while your phone's there.

    Ouch. I avoid back pocket, always paranoid about sitting on my phone. Rough photos. I seriously wonder the repair quote.

    Lol, let's count places you shouldn't keep your phone, coat pocket, backpack.

    The metal phone would not survive a hard fall like that.

    Ya. I don't think any phone would survive that. A flip phone might.

    I've never understood putting a phone in the back pocket anyway. Maybe when they were tiny and indestructible but not a 5" screen with glass and plastic. I always cringe when I see people put their phone there, and threads like this don't surprise me in the slightest.

    I doubt he fell with enough force to bend something like an HTC One. Obviously the screen would still have cracked but might not have bent like this. I'm not going to try but I bet I could snap the S4 with my bare hands, not the One

    call Visa, most of them have the damage protection and most people don't even know. Call your credit card company and ask.
