    Mine fell from a similar height and it wasn't the edge that shattered it was the middle edge on the left. There is a large chunk missing and the screen splintered. I will still be getting a new Note 7 (I loved it), but don't count on Gorilla Glass 5 protecting your phone.

    I have dropped my S6 Edge without a case from much higher and not even a scratch. I understand it is glass, but its durability is one of Samsung's selling points. I am not complaining per se because it is going back to the store Wednesday, but if this wasn't the case (ha, ha) I would be quite upset! My Note 7 was in a Spigen case.

    So I was getting out of my car yesterday and had my phone in my purse on hip height and it fell out...

    Gorilla glass my ... the right side along the edge shattered. Top and bottom. LCD is minimal black on the right upper side

    I'm just hoping since i havent turned my note 7 in at the ATT store with i have to on the 21st that they'll still replace it.

    What makes me mad is that it didn't even survive a little drop like this
    They make cases for a reason.

    A phone that drops from hip height and cracks has issues. I can understand doing a glass screen protector for the display which should crack before the display screen, but it should not be a requirement to have a case for the back.

    Mine totally shattered from a few inches from the floor. I was bending down to give my dog a treat and it slipped out of my other hand. I must have dropped my Note 5 dozens of times and there are no scratches on it.

    Yeah, but even with a case, the glass edges are still exposed! The only way to protect the glass edges would be to cover them up! Which obviously defeats the purpose of having a curved edge screen. Personally, I could do without the glass edges (and back!!!) in favor of a more durable phone!

    Mine fell off the counter onto tile this morning and back corner shattered. Frustrating. My old HTC one m9 had that same drop plenty of times and no issues with cracked screen. Really disappointing.

    What is the apparent design change? Not being smart, but not noticing in the one pic.

    Glass curved devices are crack magnets. I have a bumper case on mine, but am certain it will not handle a drop like the MXPE with just a thin case on it. Dropped that several times from various heights: Stairwell onto concrete, movie theater onto concrete, garage onto concrete, and in house onto wood floor. All were drops of at least three feet and the stairwell one was about five feet. Not a sign of any damage.

    I miss the durability and stereo speakers of the MXPE. Shame I have to allocate additional brain cells to extra-focus on not dropping the Note 7. That will be the next Note 7 scandal- stress induced ownership

    the person that posted the pic for me... wasn't sure but thought that his first phone, the screen curving off to the edge, didn't have such a border at the edge and sent a pic. Honestly I can't tell not owning one and just going by google pics of Note 7s... some pics show the display edge flowing over more closer to edge... some show a hint of a border. So Just wondering if others may notice a change.

    Still glass though Gravity and hard surfaces are bad news for glass. Especially curved and encased.

    Note 8 dreamworld: Stereo speakers, metal- non glass back, replaceable battery. Greatest device evah'!

    I'm approaching delicately like I would with my wife (no offense)...... Did you have a case on it? Key word in Gorilla Glass is the latter word Since this device is covered in glass it is a crack magnet that only a drop absorbing case could love.
    A delicate approach to the wife is always a good idea

    I usually have a Case on but of course last night I didn't. I took it off to connect the Aux cable from the car which doesn't fit otherwise. (I drove a 07 Jeep Grand cherokee, no Bluetooth lol, and time to upgrade on the car anyways too)

    Of course I have insurance for thr Note 7 but to use it now when i have to anyways give it back its not worth it... hahaha.. just in time to get the replacement.

    It just sucks because it happend the last days I will have it.

    The edges are definitely a weak spot and the height from where it fell should of been no problem to withstand. I've seen videos where they hammered that thing with force so a light drop shoupdnt of been this desasterous. LOL

    I'm happy though it still works..

    Lmao Bluejayy... I cant have you see my butt implants hahaha. 😎
    I know you are not with Verizon, but the Verizon page is saying it is taking back all phones, even damaged ones, so you should not have a problem. Thankfully it happened on the recall phone.
