    TPU case + steinheill screen protector = peace of mind
    That's what I thought but my kid took the phone out of my pocket as we were leaving the playground and trip and fell down on the right knee still holding the phone in the left hand. I didn't see the phone hit the ground but when I got home, I noticed my steinheill screen lifted in the lower left corner. The TPU case was barely scratched in the corner BUT the lower left corner of the phone was rough when I removed the TPU case to investigate the bubble in the screen. And I meticulously applied the screen on just one day ahead of the fall. Now I have no faith in the TPU case's ability to protect the phone and the screen lifting in the corner is bothering me so I would have to replace it.

    Very hard to drop if I don't let it go.

    Put a TPU case on it, but don't really like it. Added 'bulk'.

    Waiting for the screen protector. Been coddling it until then.

    Thankfully only dropped on carpet so far. I had a butthole pucker moment the other night. Took my dogs out in the backyard and sat my phone on the top of my rail post...apparently where my cat likes to perch. I made it at just the perfect second as the cat hit the phone and it was about to fall onto a concrete sidewalk. I only have mine in a white/clear hybrid TPU case. Doubt it would provide enough protection. Hate not having a tougher case for our phone yet. Really miss my Ballistic Case I had on the EVO. Gave that case to my fiance. Need a better case for hunting season. Ballistic case saved my EVO last year twice. Once dropped from tree stand and down 16 ft hitting just about every step on the way down and getting dropped in slushy snow and almost lost. Thankfully I choose the Black/Red case so I was able to find it when retracing my steps.
