    Anyone else dropped their Note 5 yet? I dropped mine yesterday on a work job and it felt like slow motion. It fell out of my hand unto the road pavement and rolled in some water on the edge. Thankfully I was using that Tech 21 case from best buy so it seemed untouched and it doesn't seem like any functionality of the phone had stopped. But deep down it still feels like I sinned my Note 5. ; - ;

    I dropped mine last night at a baseball game. Fell face first from the table (rail seating) and on to the cement. Thwack! Thank God my Spigen Liquid Crystal case has just enough of a lip, apparently, because not even a scratch.

    I want to hear horror stories from people who dropped theirs that don't use a case. 😛

    dropped my note 5 from about 3 feet (off the bathroom sink) and it lands on its side. I have a tpu case so it just bounces a little and lands safely. However the s-pen pops out like they have always done on all notes that I've owned but this time the s-pen has a little Crack near the tip, which is confusing because it was not a big drop. The phone landed on the opposite side of where the s-pen is housed and when it popped out it barely hit anything. I'm thinking since it force ejected the latch that holds it in place may have put pressure on the pen which cracked it. Needless to say the pen works intermittently.

    Dropped mine from about 3 feet and struck the corner. Had this case. Camera lens still shattered. I had insurance and had to pay $200 deductible (Verizon) . I was very lucky to get a new one as a replacement.

    I dropped mine twice today. First time from the pocket and landed on its back on the street, later on I dropped it again about the same height but landed on carpet. Luckily my Note 5 has those clear case on. Everything seems to be fine. I am a very careful person. I do believe accident happen, and it did. My heart also dropped on the ground at first.

    See that's the thing. I was babying mine so much till I got a bit too jittery with it. I mean watching a 800 dollar device fall from your hands sucks.

    $200!? Wow! That's a lot. Especially after such a short time having it. Too bad that they don't put the hardest glass made on the camera lens portion. Is the sapphire glass that Apple and other manufacturers use the harder glass?

    Yeah. Accidents do happen and nothing guarantees the case you are using will protect it, based on how it falls. It always helps to decrease the chance of it breaking though.
    Just getting a case for mine will help me hang onto it better.

    While taking a picture of a praying mantis today I dropped mine. Luckily it was in the grass from about knee height. It came out of my hand when the mantis jumped on me from the tire of my truck. Scared the hell out of me! No damage. Thankfully in the grass.

    No case & I dropped mine from about a foot & landed on its curved side near the volume buttons and cracked the back glass. I was soooo pissed! Had only had it 4 days. I talked to Verizon & could get a replacement but no guarantee of a new replacement. After paying $800 and only having it 4 days I didn't want to take the chance on a "like new replacement" so I sent mine off to Samsung for repair. Currently waiting to get it back.

    Today I was getting into my pickup truck and began closing the door when my Note 5 fell out of my semi-torn cargo pocket (I know I know). Before my brain could process what was happening I felt the door slam into the phone as it was falling, eventually onto the pavement. Only damage was a very small spider crack to the tempered glass screen protector. The rest of the Note is covered by a Spigen case and has no damage. I got lucky.

    I almost dropped mine because the otterbox commuter case is so dang slippery! ! I need to buy some grip tape for it.

    I did buy a speck hard candyshell case i have been using.. it doesn't offer as much protection but the raised grips on the back and sides lock the phone in my hand when im using it.

    Yeah so much for GG4 they claim 80% of drops were unbroken I guess you (speedfreek64)and I got the minority... I also have a cracked back glass my phone committed suicide by jumping out of my pocket while getting out of my car. I was wearing cargo shorts with deep pockets and never thought it would slide itself out like it did. Super slippery glass . How much does Sammy charge for repair? P.S get a screen protector too because it slipped out of my pocket again and fell face down onto a vinyl tile floor while I was sitting in a computer chair. It was maybe a foot height and I now have 4 little scratches visible only with screen off or in sunlight. I'm pissed at how easily this $$ device has scratched / broken. My nexus 6 I had bounced quite a few times and still looked brand new when I traded it in I miss it.

    So this isn't note 5 related but it's drop related... so yesterday my cousin left his G3 on the trunk of a car and well the phone ended up in the street.. we didn't know it was there since it was dark out. When he realized what happened we went to check and the phone was in perfect shape thanks to the otterbox defender case.

    just yesterday i dropped my phone and i had a glass screen protector on it, and a phone case. however when it fell out of my pocket, it landed on the screen. i noticed that the glass protector cracked , so i decided to take it off and while i was doing that( the impact was so hard that the real glass cracked a little too ) . i tried to turn it on but my screen went black and i had a purple line go threw it. the first few hours i was able to receive all notifications but wasn't able to pick up phone calls nor answer messages. so i decided to wait for it to die, once it was dead i charged it again. but the screen is still black. WHAT SHOULD I DO ? REPLACE THE PHONE OR JUST REPLACE THE SCREEN ? NEED SOME SUGGESTIONS !!!!
