    What are you talking about? Other than the screen, it was very durable with very very minor damage.

    I just wish people would stop doing drop tests and send me the device if they are just going to destroy $600+ devices.

    +1 for why someone would intentionally drop their phone. That's what cases are for. My Otterbox Defender case and Black Mist GS4 16GB on AT&T is waiting for me to get home today. My GS4 arrived Thursday and the Otterbox Defender arrived yesterday.

    Slap the cheapest case you can find on ebay on that sucker and try it again - I bet it will be perfectly fine. This "test" it ridiculous and it hurts my heart to see them bust up that beautiful phone!

    Well it fell flat on its face on cement, not surprised, but did pretty well with the first 2 drops...The cases I get usually leave some room above the screen for extra protection

    I don't want to sound like an ahole but why would you do this to your phone. I mean i guess techs do this to test the durability of them but still! I just don't get it. Here i am waiting over a month for my Verizon S4 and this guy is purposely effing his up :confused :

    Why are there never drop test videos with the phone In cases? This would actually help people make buying choices on cases. Samsung vrs apple people pissing on each other is so OLD ! Phones are plastic Metal glass and other stuff if you drop and throw them they will break. I dont care which phone It is. The debat should and needs to be how the phones hold up in different cases. Does anyone care how a naked phone breaks on cement? I care how it did when dropped in X case vrs Y case vrs Z case. Am I the only one that thinks this way?

    Thank you! That is just what I was thinking.
    Why not drop test it in cases to see how well the cases protect it.
    Then the last drop after all the cases can be one without the case.
    I could not not have a case on my phone, it felt slippery.

    ***THIS JUST IN***

    Researchers discovered today that if you drop a smart phone with out a protective case numerous times the screen will break. Candy Crowley is at the UN to get their reaction. Candy?.
