    Its just bad luck. My wife's fell off the trunk of her car while driving down the road in a simple case, no problem. She drops it literally 5 times a day as well. I'm sure the time it will crack is when it slips off the coffee table.

    I just watched two different reviews from people who have used the device for 2 weeks and both said they have minor scratches on the front and back.
    I'm concerned about how those minor scratches after only 2 weeks will look after a few months.
    I still haven't purchased one, and that is definitely going to way in on my decision.

    I'm feeling that way perfect drop to crack my phone or not . I'm glad it didn't shatter and just cracked it's just annoying to know that I have dropped my Note 5 way worst manner and it didn't do anything but get scratched I'm wondering if whatever Samsung is doing to get this glass curve isn't weakening it every picture I see online is a cracked corner are along the Curve

    Do we know if the glass is the same thickness? They did increase the battery size and stuff after all.

    But it's probably the edged screen, since the note 5 was flat.

    That's a good question I don't really know thing is I know several people with the Galaxy S7 curve who are clumsy as hectic and dropped their phone regularly some without cases and it hasn't cracked or shattered which is why I'm kind of wondering if something they're doing with manufacturing the Curve for the Note 7 with this Gorilla Glass 5 is not making it weaker than it should be

    A simple case with a rubber lining is much better protection than a hard carbon case. As I type this using a hard carbon case.....

    It's very brittle. Took mine out of my pocket to find the top left corner was cracked. Never dropped or suffered any kind of impact. My brother's phone slipped out of his pocket and fell between the car seat and cracked. There is a problem with this screen and i honestly believe that we will see more and more reports as the days go by.

    That sucks.
    And I thought the S7 Edge was fragile.
    Looks like you still rocking the stock screen protector like me.

    at my case and I and have been going out and look at some other cases they don't offer protection around this specific area and easy access to the S Pen. If the case gives you easy access to the S Pen there's so much looseness and movement that if you drop it there's a chance to actually exposed Corner may hit the ground on the ones that have a more tighter fit around that particular corner its a little rough to get the S Pen out on

    I believe the Active , it came down to QC of assembly. With the glass on the Note 7. The edges are not protected being flush on the frame... it's curved on both sides and it's going to be the weak point. On top of that both sides are like that so possible to crack front and back. This front will just need more care than others.

    Corning's new Gorilla Glass 5 is meant to survive epic smartphone drops | The Verge

    "What will define the performance of the overall device on those types of corner drops is stiffness of the phone design, but also how the glass is packaged," Bayne said. Much of this is dependent on what's known as the "proudness" of the glass, which refers to how high above the phone the glass sits. "If it sits up really high, we call that a proud design. If it's protected by the bezel of the design then, it's - not proud. So if you have a device that has a proud design, that one wouldn't perform as well as one that had a different design."

    "And as we go to 3D designs, the edge is more exposed ... and you have to be sensitive to that," he added.


    Makes since

    I have no idea what they are saying lol.... and they take an axe to the phone near the end and just multilate it ... But check out the vid at 5:30 mark where they do a drop test at pocket height... 3ft? Again, at the corner/edges
    imo this phone needs a case with raised bezels to give the sides and corners more protection.

    Another review I found. In first 3 minutes he mentions how he accidentally dropped at 3 feet and cracked the screen

    One thing is sure gg5 is less scratch resistant than gorilla glass 4 but more shatter proof...to gain some u loose some..
    To my luck i dropped my s7 edge flat on the screen from waist height and it dint crack...soo sometimes luck is a major factor...
