    Default Who has dropped their M8?

    ... And what happened? I have been lucky enough not to have dropped mine, with the exception of it sliding off the side of the bed, in a hyperion case and onto carpet...

    Dropped mine from a little above waist high onto a hard tile floor and there is one scuff mark in the bottom right hand corner. I hate it but it is what it is.

    Understandable haha. I've come to the realization that it is going to happen eventually, so I don't stress about it.

    I had a case on it but its just a slim hard snap on case that doesn't protect the top/bottom. I didn't realize that when I bought the case unfortunately:/

    Dropped mine naked from about waist height on cruel concrete.
    Got a minor scuff and couple of tiny scratches. It hurts way more than I ever expected it to. :/
    But then, my Otterbox is on its way. :P

    I guess it's safe to say the M8 can easily scar no matter how you drop it...

    I have a bad habit of laying the phone in my lap while driving then getting out and the phone goes flying across the parking lot, this happened with the m8 and luckily there was only a scratch on the edge . The phone was laying face down with no case so I amazed the screen was not shattered.. Good thing it happened during an exchange period so I exchanged it with no problem

    Dropped mine getting out of car at only 5 days old shattered the screen... , - had been procrastinating unable to decide which case. Luckily I was able to send it to HTC advantage and they replaced the screen. She is secure in an otterbox now..

    My friend dropped it on hardwood floor when he was trying out my phone, it was unscathed because it was behind a Zagg glass screen protector and Spigen Slim Armor case.

    So is the build quality good enough to survive drops without a case? The build quality is good and the drop test videos seem promising because one of them was able to run over an M8 with a truck and still have it working.
    I'm gonna get flak but I'd rather have Sense over Stock Android for my daily driver.

    Dropped mine from chair height onto a patio within two weeks of the phone coming out and it smashed the screen :-(
