    When I spoke to the in store vzw rep today they said it's a bunch of bs and pure gimmick which worked on me.
    And everybody knows that people that work in Verizon stores know everything about cell phones and cases.......

    right.

    But you have to remember that insurance also handles if the phone is stolen, lost, totally destroyed or something else happens where the phone is beyond fixing. I have insurance on my phone and I always have it on my phones for this reason not so much because I think I will crack the screen.

    My best friend got in a car accident (T-Bone) a year ago and his phone (I assume) flew out the car or something and was lost after the accident. If he didn't have insurance he would have been paying full retail for a new phone. Also since the phone wasn't found he couldn't even charge the other driver's insurance company for it because their was no proof he even had the phone in the car with him before the accident.

    Insurance isn't just for cracked screens...
    Agree

    It's a nonexistent lip on this phone unfortunately and I'm sure that is exactly why it cracked as there is no protection on both edges of the screen.

    That sucks. I refuse to buy a case with no or a very small lip

    Sorry to hear you already injured your new toy

    I dropped mine earlier this morning, or rather fumbled it. It just got its Spigen slim armor clear case yesterday. Not saying it'll protect it from future fumbles and tumbles, but it came out in flying colors this time.

    I had a UAG on my old note 4, loved it. Almost got one for the 7, looks like I won't be.

    I'm really disappointed in it. It was the only case the vzw store had but you would have thought I would have ordered the Defender case before I bought the phone. It's my fault, I'm extremely hard on phones due to the nature of my work but I would have thought the case would have done a little better job at protecting this investment

    The reason I bought the UAG case was because I had it on my Note 3. I'm willing to bet I dropped that N3 50 times btw myself and my kids and every time it came out unscathed. Drops from 3,4,5 ft on concrete every which way, from the car to the ground from the kids and like I said every time it was beautiful.

    I really think you AG decided to go for looks versus functionality on this case which really really sucks

    Sorry to hear. That stinks.

    As for the case, edge screens are hard to protect well though. I suspect that many cases offer little protection for the Note 7 honestly, unless there is a cover or unless it is massively bulky with huge lips. It's a price to pay for an edge screen , and it's hard to deal with I think. Also, so many factors go into a drop (the angle ti fell/hit at , face down or not, surface it lands on, etc, etc) so it may be easy to blame the case, but I do suspect many cases might have troubles protecting edge phones.

    I know it's not comforting to hear this, and I am sorry your screen cracked, that really stinks.

    You are absolutely on point with every point honestly. I can't forsee how any case can properly protect this device without obscuring the Edge screen. I guess only time will tell if another supplier can come up with a better case

    I love my Note 5, but I will probably go with someone other than Samsung for my next phablet. I'm hoping HTC makes a phablet. I suspect Samsung is going to make ALL of their upcoming phones with Note 7-style edges in the future and I have decided I prefer the typical flat style that is stronger and easier to protect.

    I'm beginning to think that way too. One thing I do have to say is the antenna is much stronger than my N3 which is to be expected.

    Will they will give you a brand new device? Can you pick it up at the Verizon store?

    Can you post a picture showing the cracked UAG/Note 7 ?

    Hahaha...man, this is such truth right there. I have been saying this for a long while now, but I just don't understand this type of thinking. Beautiful phones that are supposed to stand out but that don't because of these fugly cases to protect it in. It would be like buying a super nice sports car and then wrapping it with black rubber all around it, making it look stupid. But hey, it still drives fast and handles well! Jeez...phones like the one plus 3 can perform just as nice for so much lower of a cost. Marketing and advertising works though, as proven by Samsung.
