    Droid Turbo 2 -- they call it the "Shatterproof Screen" since it is plastic instead of cardboard. From what I hear though it makes the screen look awful.

    10 million sold and only a couple hundred posts on the entire Internet about the glass. Doesn't seem like a big issue to me. And, as several posters have said previously, you can Google all the phones that have come out with glass screens and see posts about them. But, compared to the number of each model sold, it really is not an issue.

    It's amazing what a polarizing issue this is! There is the "you shouldn't EVER drop your phone so tough darts" group and the "what we're saying is this one cracks easier than any other phone I've ever owned" group.

    Neither group seems to respect the other at all.

    If this phone really does crack or scratch easier than any previous model I think it is fair to say it is an issue.
    It doesn't so no it's not.

    Do you know how few people go to forums ever? The point is more complaints than any other phone ever.

    No, but every manufacturer knows it often happens. Of course any phone will break if dropped from 10 feet on to concrete. No other phone has had as many complaints about breaking from small falls than this one. Everything is relative. This may be the most delicate phone built in the last 5 years.

    If we all agree phones shouldn't be dropped can't we all agree that IF dropped some phones are MORE likely to break than others?

    You're convinced this is true, so keep believing. I for one, choose not to believe that allegation without verifiable data.

    Most people who drop their phones take responsibility and deal with it.

    Because this phone has an Edge, and requires extra care, people want to blame the phone. I dropped my phone once and got lucky.

    I will take extra care to both protect it and never drop it again.

    My S7 edge has a very fine crack that goes from edge to edge horizontally. The only way you can feel it is if you rub your nail over it to feel that there is a groove. You can only see it when the screen isn't lit or when wearing the VR Gear. I don't mind it at all because it doesn't affect the functionality or the look of the phone.
    How it happened was very odd to me. I was at a pool party and the phone was in my bathing suit's pocket. I usually put the phone in with the screen facing my thigh, but I was buzzed, so I could've did the opposite. I was sitting in the grotto and bumped the edge of it, which had some bricks and stones, pretty hard. It would've hurt if my phone didn't absorb the shock. I take my phone out shortly after and there was that crack.
    Needless to say, no more showing off it's water resistant, I don't need water getting into the crack.
