    Has anyone dropped their Note 5 yet? My mom dropped it today from sofa level height, and it fell on our hardwood floors. Hardware wise it looks fine (had a pretty light case and screen protector on it), but I'm worried there is some software damage or internal parts damage that can't see. I just get very worried about my phones being damaged which is why I try to take very good care of them...sigh. anyway, should I be worried? How durable is the note 5?

    Oh my gosh - I did drop my new Note 5 - last Saturday - taking it out of my back pocket - the phone angels smiled on me - no screen or case damage at all.

    Phone is covered with a Spigen Clear crystal dual case and a Zagg screen (not tempered). The phone must have hit at precisely the blessed impact angle as I have dropped other phones which hit far less hard and which were severely damaged.

    Lucky and loving my Note 5!!!

    Same exact thing happen with me and I dropped it when I was on vacation at seat level also, my s-pen came out just a bit, but it's fine no scratched, dings or dent. All good with everything including Samsung Pay!

    Dropped mine bout 3 feet. I have a sturdy case on it but of course managed to ding the area around the S Pen. The S Pen also flew out...luckily it wasn't damaged. As far as internal damage don't think so. I dropped mine bout a week ago and I haven't had any issues

    Dropped mine out of my truck when choosing the door. Bounced off my running boards and landed face down on the street. Scared to death I turned it over, no damage! Love Spigen cases and tempered glass screen protectors.

    Took mine out of my otter box to explore the feel of it a bit without the case. A friend stopped by so I slipped it in my pocket and when I sat down it slipped out of my pocket and bounced off my tile floors. There is a ding on the metal frame and the rear glass cracked across the corner. I have insurance but sucks to pay another 149$ for cosmetic reasons but I'm going to do it in case there is internal damage too.

    This is the first time I have ever broken a phone.

    Jeez that bites! Curse the moment you decided to admire the Sexy Beast!

    About 2 days after I got my 1st note (Note 3) I rolled over it. I was taking grocery out my car and thought a can fell out, but it was my phone. My son yelled out that I had rolled on my dog's tie out so I put the car in gear and rolled a couple inches...CRUNCH! My brand new Note 3. True story! Thank goodness for insurance.

    My deductible is $175. Why is yours so low?

    Glad it's so tough but a little disappointed, I was hoping for some carnage!

    I was thinking that the cost at Samsung to replace the back glass is less than insurance deductibles.

    Dropped mine from about 3 ft, phone was fine with a tpu case however my s-pen ejected and cracked at the tip. I had to order a new one off eBay for $20 and it works as good as the original.

    Check out this extreme 900ft drop test and it still works!

    It used to be that like two flagships ago, but I'm pretty sure it's $175 now. I could be wrong.

    Mine is $149 as well, but I guess it's because they discount employees, idk.

    Someone posted here that Samsung quoted then less than $190 for a back glass replacement, not long ago.

    Yeah if you have to send your phone into them you are without it about 10 days.

    You can also get Square Trade and their deductible is like $75 and their premium is lower. You can also use local repair places with them. They don't cover loss or theft, just damage.
