    Bought the Samsung S8 and unfortunately dropped it the first day and it shattered like glass. I cannot believe Samsung is doing this to us. The screen is gorilla glass which is great then they have the nerve to charge 600-800+ for a phone made of something so fragile. Where I bought it they did not have a case for it. I say buy a case first then the phone.

    While I do feel terrible for you.... Samsung isn't doing anything to us.

    Being careful of your fragile yet expensive electronic item isn't new.

    That would go for phones, tablets and laptop's.

    Sorry....

    Those pictures made me wince.

    Although there are thousands of cases available online I also find many available in Highstreet Stores and flea markets.

    I bought a cheap tpu clear case until my RhinoShield Bumper came through.

    As a father to two teen-aged daughters that are in possession of Samsung Galaxy S8 phones, this is something I expect, but hope against, every day when I come home from work.

    Short of equipping their phones with M1 Abrams cases - which are remarkably unpopular with that demographic - it's just something you live with if you've made this choice.

    (And, for clarity's sake, by "you've made this choice", I do mean having two teen-aged daughters.)

    "it shattered like glass"

    Of course it did, it's an all glass phone. Even in a case you have to treat it like a baby and you pray you don't drop it. I traded in my s8 Plus after the 1st few weeks and as much as I liked the phone I don't miss the anxiety of dropping it and doing what you did

    Please tell me you've at least got insurance on it?

    How is the rhino shield bumper working. I have a hard time believing the protection they say it offers. Do you have pictures of it on your phone?

    Did this happen with the s7 and s6 and iphones? where the first 3 weeks were filled with post of people who drop the phone days..hours after getting it and complaining why they sold them such a fragile phone?

    It fits really well on my s8.

    It's thin and light thus does not add much to its dimensions.

    The extreme drop tests I've seen on YouTube which some are over the claimed 11 feet are comforting but I hope I never have to put it to the test myself

    It works well with my dbrand Black Dragon back skin and Official Samsung film type screen protector.

    I have read some with s8+ say the sides are loose but I've seen a YouTube review from TechZilla saying it fits fine.

    I'll add some pictures in a few minutes.

    OK. Thanks. I'll check YouTube, there weren't any YouTube videos on the S8 series when I last looked. I would like them to test the edge series in their drop tests, they have only done the flat screen tests, which I'm sure will test different then the edge screens.

    This is one and she also does more extreme drop tests too.

    Thanks. I watched the video, better then nothing, but would have been nice to see her drop kick the S8, LOL. Looks like you could use the rhino without a skin also.

    I have 2 cases for my s8 plus-- unicorn beetle and a caseology clear case that has a reinforced black bumper. I have dropped the phone a couple of times but never had an issue because I've had those cases on . But believe me I am is careful as I can possibly be majority of the time and would not leave the house without a case on

    If you look at one of her older drop test reviews she does precisely that !

    Sorry for your loss. An all-glass shatter-prone phone is undeniably dumb. But it is even more dumb to not put a case on your phone.

    I know, I was hoping for that with the S8, I think the one she dropped kicked is a flat screen.

    Another question, I've seen reports that the buttons are hard to push with the rhino bumper on, is this true? TIA

    I missed my shirt pocket with my S8+ and it dropped from there to a tile floor with only a very thin mat. Phone in Spigen Tough Armor and no damage whatsoever to either the case or the phone. I can hardly wait to see what the S9 is going to be made of ;(

    Samsung is doing what everyone wanted, making a "premium device" instead of a durable plastic body. Their phones have been fragile since the S6 and the edge display is worse.

    I used to work for Verizon, I've seen a lot of broken phones, seen people break the screen on the S6 Edge in under a week of owner ship.
