    I have dropped it on carpet but not on any other surface. I have an OB Defender so I don't have to worry as much about drops.

    I haven't dropped mine yet either. But I did buy an Otterbox Commuter case. I find it not nearly as bulky as some of the other otterbox cases and still offers very good protection.

    Well, lol, yes, i was hoping i could say i hav'nt dropped my GSIII yet. I have had my phone twice now. Both times at work. I'm a manager at a Healthcare clinic and i have to answer my phone several times a day. Both times i dropped it,--- i had NO case on it. But it did ok. No problems, no scratches, works like a charm......however, i did buy an Otterbox defender series case now. JUST in case i do it again. This is a great phone.

    You know you can turn the clip of the defender to make the case vertical right?

    LoL Yup but then the slot portion is on the side.So the bottom of the holster is also on the side.I dont like it like that either .
    If it was just like the nexus style only with the hinged clip that holds phone in holster I would have no complaints about it .
    Thats all the nexus holster needed a hinged clip that holds phone in the holster , instead of a flexable plastic tab.

    Who else hasn't dropped they s3 yet?
    Today? No, I haven't dropped my S3 yet... today.



    Dropped it a handful of times already, since I've owned it. Not a scratch on it. I keep it in a Diztronic TPU or a Trident Kraken (when I am at work).

    Never dropped a phone, including this one. I did buy a slim case for it a few weeks just to take some of the slickness off... so far so good...

    was getting out the car. You know the next part...

    Forgot it was in my lap. Boom, falls 4 feet in to a pile of mud. Land on the back though. Wiped the mud off the back, turned it over. Not a scratch

    I was just thinking about this (kind of). I hate screen protectors, they ALL feel weird and take away from the beauty of the glass, plus come on we have gorilla glass right? Also I am using a otter box commuter case on my S3 but when I think about it, I have never scratched a screen protector before ever, and I have never dropped my phone either (okay maybe on the couch but that is it). I am sure a lot of this has to do with the fact I am a big health nut, so... I don't get drunk or really drink ever. If I did I would probably use a defender series case lol.

    I thought I would be slick though over this past weekend and took my phone out of the case and went to the mall, made me too nervous so I threw the case back on her.

    I have already dropped mine and cracked the screen. Fortunately I have the best buy insurance so they replaced it with no copay

    I'm working on my procrastination issues, you just wait and see!

    The longer you go without dropping just increases the chance of a minor and sometimes catastrophic drop. Get a rugged case of some kind and forget about it.

    Dropped my phone twice now with the Incipio. Once was the "flew out of my hands" onto a concrete floor, and I have done the getting out of the car with the phone in my lap. No damage, and nothing noticeable even on the case.

    I dropped mine it was literally the same day I got my case. I have the Incipio Feather. Small mark on the corner of the case but other than that nothing. Dropped from waist high into asphalt...

    Nope, haven't dropped it YET.

    Using a Barely There case by CaseMate.

    Using a defender or otterbox is like losing the last 30lbs in fatcamp and putting on huge track pants and a rubber inner tube for clothing.

    I dropped my first one on day 5, from my truck to the asphalt. Cracked the screen. Since I got my 2nd one, I have had about 7 cases and have 2 more on their way.I'm in construction, the defender is the best one at work. I have the Seidio Surface case for when I go out partying. Those are my two favorites anyway.
