Sucks that they can't make a phone that can handle some bumping around. They go to all the touble of making these things incredibly sexy and cool and the very first thing you're required to do is double the size with some bulky plastic case. If the original form factor of the phone were the same as the size with the case, NO NONE would buy it. It would be the laughingstock of the phone universe - even if it were sold as indestructible.
Just a bummer. I really like the feel of this phone naked. But we've seen over and over, this phone (or really any flagship) CAN NOT withstand an impact of any degree without breaking.
