    ...this week officially sucks. just dropped my phone. haven't taken the case off yet... screen is okay, but everybody please pray or send good vibes. will report back when I've started breathing again. 2.5-3' drop onto carpet but I heard it contact with metal and it was at the side of surge protector. all bets are off.

    nope. this silicone case for the grip and it has a hard inner shell, which obviously saved me.

    I did and it hurt. I would have cried and cursed a storm if my glass broke, but $29 to fix so not the end of the world.

    LOL, I meant it as reassurance that the phone itself should be A-OK in terms of function if it could survive that plunge as well!

    wasn't thinking about the internals, only the back glass and front glass. you know... the glass replacement is only for the screen.

    no dead pixels yet either. it only took a 2.5' drop onto carpet for my Note 8 to get a large cluster of them.

    Wish they would've used a otterbox to compare it to the iphone. Looks like our phones are weighted differently since it kept wanting to glide in different directions

    That's why I refuse the temptations of the "sexy" cases and use the "concentration camp guard" OtterBox Defender cases. They're bulky and heavy but give better protection.🙂

    After seeing folks on here posting pics of their broken screens from drops, I ordered a Ghostek Atomic Slim military grade case. https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=_o0tLp5T

    And even though I love the factory installed screen protector on my Note 10 Plus, I ordered an Olixar tempered glass screen protector to use when the one Samsung provided starts to get ratty.

    And don't laugh, but I put my phone into a zip log bag when its in my backpack, LOL!
