I've dropped my skinomi'd optimus on pavement and had no issues, but that phone is a tank (and has a plastic screen). The reverb seems a lot more delicate.
Yeah I upgraded from an Op V too and am really trying to be careful with the Reverb. I won't do screen protectors anymore though. They make things uglier and it's not nearly as fluid swiping on a plastic film than directly on the glass. I think as long the phone isn't in the same pocket as the keys that it'll be okay.
