I dropped mine the first week also getting out of the car I was slipping it into my pocket but somehow missed and it fumbled down my leg till it reached my foot, which of course was moving forward and kicked it a few feet across the driveway. I had the Verizon Leather kickstand case on though luckily and there was not a scratch. I was pretty pleased since I had not received the screen protector yet.
I dropped mine from standing height in a bar with beer puddle landmines everywhere and it exploded into 3 pieces (battery back, battery, and remainder). Literally not one tiny eensy-weensy scratch on it. My phone is invincible.
I hear you, the same day I took off my case to see how things went I was getting out of trck and trying to grab phone out of pocket to leave inside and as im grabbing it out it fell.. naked onto the rocky parking lot. 3 dents to back door and scratches on bottom and back. Next move was to call vzw and add the insurance. lol
only good thing now is I don't care anymore and just toss it around, guilt free. I'll give it a month or so and get my replacement.
so I pull into my parking spot at work and get out of my car...which is a jeep commander...so it's kind of a long way to the ground...anyway, my x, yep on my lap. Horrible. Falls off my lap and I watch as it slowly drops, screen down, onto the concrete curb, then bouncing off that onto the blacktop. I was horrified. I had just finish a call and forgot I just put it down in my lap.
The screen protector had a few scratches on it...thank god it was a 3 pack, and there are 3 very small scratches on the right side. Honestly, could have been a lot worse...
I dropped mine a couple times in the first couple weeks I had it so I decided to get a case and a screen protector. I have the leather case from Verizon and it works really well.
Is that the case with a kickstand in the back? How do you like it? And how's the feel? I haven't dropped my X yet thanks to the amazing soft touch back, and I'm a little worried that a case would make the phone more slippery (as well as more protected).
I dropped mine on cement twice, the one time it kinda hit the ground and rolled a few feet... it was all scratched up across the bottom but after a day or two the soft plastic really blended well and you only notice it if you run your fingers across it or look real closely.
