I was at a party taking a picture of the whole room. I was standing on a bar stool with my hands about face high. And when I took my finger off the side of the phone to push the shutter "button" the phone slipped and there she went....crashing to the tile floor below and bouncing numerous times. 2 of the "tabs" broke off of the corners of the exoskeleton...but the phone is fine. I can tell you right now, had there been no case, my phone would be in pieces. And very likely if it had been a lighter case(ie Innocase2), not sure it would have fared well. Primary causal factor in this accident: ....not having a dedicated camera button!!! It is the complicated way in whichh you must hold the phone in order to touch the shutter button.
