i just got a hairline crack from a fall off the arm of my couch onto a wood floor/electronics cabling (not sure exactly what it struck first/last).
it's pretty minor but noticeable. definitely something i could live with but i won't have to as my nexus 4 also has the rattle so Google is sending a replacement.
That you're going to get charged for. You authorized a hold of the price for a warranty replacement, once they see the crack (which they will) youre charge will be full and not pending.
It's kind of a slick phone. I had it fall out of my pocket that I didn't have the nexus shoved in far enough. Fortunately no damage, I just received a S-Line TPU case today to save the phone from my clumsiness. The case was a cheap Ebayer but it actually is pretty nice fit and is really easy to grip.
Why does everyone somehow drop their phone at least once? Do 99% of Android users have butterfingers?
Because people aren't perfect?
I mean, why are the car insurance companies? Does everyone crash their car or something? No, but people have accidents.
I'd be shocked if you've never dropped your phone, or never made a mistake. Shocked.
Cracked? Try shattered. It was in my cargo pocket during a motorcycle accident on marble-sized gravel and I landed on it, smashing the back in three places and leaving cracks running up and down the whole back. The front was unscathed, but sadly the camera no longer works. Luckily it's covered by my credit card's accidental damage protection, but now all my efforts to get an order in for launch day are for nothing cos I can't order a replacement. My cheapo TPU case came in the mail today, a little late but likely wouldn't have helped.
Note: I am not in any way suggesting that the phone should've survived being landed on by a big guy crashing a motorcycle, just fulfilling the request for pics.
Really? I mean I hope it wasn't just a joy ride. I hope you absolutely had to be riding a motorcycle with your phone in your pocket. Please tell me you weren't just dicking around on a bike!
