Instead of worrying about how your phone will fare in the event of a drop why not focus your protection on preventing drops in the first place.. I have a Kevlar corded retractable tether on mine that has saved my phone countless times from drops. Have never once dropped my phone using it. Most of the instances were getting up with the phone in my lap. For women it's that and falling out if their bags when rummaging for something quickly. In both cases if the phone was tethered to the pants or purse it would never hit the ground.
