    ok so this will be a large phone even without a case...im definitely going to use a screen protector, but is a case necessary? i may drop it 2-3 times in its entire life time...will a 3-4 ft drop actually break a phone or crack the screen??? maybe scratch the camera lense on the back? ive always had cases and maybe i havent needed one...thanks for your experiences in advance... :confused:

    I don't like taking any chances with these phones...yes, a drop from 3-4ft onto asphalt when you get out of a truck will definitely (have a really good chance) crack/shatter a glass screen.

    I really hope otterbox gets their butts in gear and makes a really good protective case for this phone.

    I dont like putting phones in my pocket, especially a phone of that size. I will have a case for this phone without a doubt. I dont want anything breaking and then having to pay $100 for a refurb.

    The phone's not even out yet. So how is anyone here going to really know how sturdy and vulnerable to damage this phone is really going to be?

    well seeing how the fron is all glass, and the camera protrudes, build quality doesn't matter so this thread is valid.

    to answer the OP question, yea, if you drop it onto asphalt it will break it, i hope they come with some nice cases for it, i hope incase makes something too, and a screen protector would be nice

    Only you can answer this question. It depends on how carefull you are with a phone, if you have little kids, if you let them play with it, your work environment (construction vs. deskjob), etc.

    For me, I look for a convenient carrying solution to wear on my belt. Not so much for drop protection as I've never dropped a phone any damaging distance in my life (43 years old). So yes I'll end up with a case of some sort. And no screen protector for me. They diminish the sensitivity and look like crap after a few weeks. I have 3 ipod touches and the screens are spotless.

    Well I see no choice but to get a miniature laptop case for this device. It does not fit in your pocket...
