    buying S6 for someone who dropped her current S5 from 2 to 4 feet high EVERY SINGLE DAY?

    is that a really bad idea because of the glass back and metal body on the new S6?


    (yes, she does drop it EVERY SINGLE DAY..... I have already stop commenting on the drops
    after the first 50.... S5 was originally bought 9 months ago... surprisingly, the phone has not
    died.... but has gone through about a dozen tempered glass screen protectors so far, even
    the manufacturer of the protector has refused to replace the protectors again, after so many
    broken ones....)

    Maybe it would be fine if it was in the thickest Otterbox avaliable.

    Yes, it's a bad idea. If she had to pay for her own phone she might be a little more careful.

    Maybe she needs a good set of gloves or a lanyard

    The 1 time I'd recommend putting a big bulky case on the s6 or s6 edge! She will need it. For the average user I'm sure a thin TPU case or bumper would suffice for normal wear and tear.

    is this even a serious question? lol ... why would you consider a glass phone for someone so clumsy? first of all, said person obviously doesn't value their device if that's how it's treated. and second, that person probably can care less if they have such a premium looking device. since aesthetics is such a huge seeking point of the s6, I wouldn't encourage anyone to slap otterbox's largest case over it. either wait for the s6 active, or get the Note 4 or Nexus 6 (if they like larger devices) or the M9 or G4 assuming it's not glass.

    also, if that was my daughter, mom, sister, girlfriend, wife whatever, she'd be paying for the phone AND replacement ... we'll see how often she drops it when it comes out of her pocket!

    good luck buddy! let us know what you get

    I wouldn't buy this person anything. Having a premium device is a privilege not a right. If they can't take care of something why would you upgrade them? They need to do it themselves, or go back to an old faithful flip phone which would survive.

    I'm going to recommend this phone to my wife, and she has a similar tendency. I'll throw it in a good case, and tell her to be careful.

    9 months of being dropped everyday? Says a lot for the S5! This will be the new squaretrade video, long term drop tests!! Kind of like Car and Driver with the long term vehicle tests, awesome!
