I just pulled mine out of the washer on Sunday (OOPS!) and thought I would have to use my last NE2 to get something I don't genuinely want. Instead, I took it apart, pulled the board, pulled the screen, took the air compressor to it, slapped it back together, and....works like a charm (plus it's squeaky clean!).
I've never used a case and have had some pretty epic drops, but this thing loves life too much to go out like that. My battery life has always been pretty darn good. No software/hardware hiccups. Still loving CM. Actually, the only flaw is...it has set the bar so freaking high for whatever my next phone might be.
Come to think of it, since it seems to be impervious to impact and water, I might just grab some duct tape and mount it on my bikes/cars like a Go Pro once it finally does retire
