    Dropped the EVO today 4 feet to a hardwood floor and nothing at all happened to it. It was in a case and has a zagg screen sheet on it. It did sound like dropping a bowling ball when it hit that floor.

    What kind of protection do screen protectors provide? They did serve a purpose way back in the stone age when we were forced to use a stylus, but now what’s the point?

    My naked evo was dropped on concrete/asphalt from about 3-4 feet and all i got was an ugly "mark" on the corner of my evo. (drop was a complete accident caused by someone else while the phone was on an outdoor table)

    I dropped mine naked the second day of ownership on top of my shoe and then it rolled onto my concrete driveway. two scratches on lower left hand corner and upper right hand corner on the black shinny bezel but no damage to the screen.

    bezel should have been rubber, imo. still pretty proud of my EVO's manliness :)

    I have dropped mine at least three times so far. And I don't use a case or screen protector. Only damage so far is a very small scratch on the screen. Not even noticeable to me anymore

    I have to drop mine. Unfortunately, my screen was scratched by a grain of sand left in my pants from a visit to the beach :(

    At the rate I go through phones, who has time to worry about a little scratch here and there.. :D Shattering it on the other hand, worries me. Lack of camera protection does too, so that is why I bought the Seidio Active Case. Awesome case!

    Mine had a 2 foot drop one night when someone was pounding on my front door at 3am and out of a deep sleep, i grabbed my phone instead of my pistol. The charging cable got caught on the corner of the bed and my phone went flying the opposite direction. I was like FAAWWWKKKk... Needless to say this enraged me even more.

    PS- the guy at the front door was a heroin addict lookin for someone that lives in my neighborhood LOL! I was IRRATE>

    i'd of shot him anyways =P

    my evo only has one 'oh noes!!' altercation. was using it sitting on my sons bed while we watched Yo Gabba Gabba! and he threw his hands up in excitement(he's 2) and it knocked it clean out of my hand, 6" into the wall..and it slid down the wall between it and his bed...i was like "NOOOOOO" but...not a single scratch or mark on the phone or screen.

    in fact when i'm charging it i have the charging cable coiled up and place the phone on top of the cord so that it isn't touching the counter or desk. it is usually in my pocket or on the sofa.

    My 2 almost 3 next month y/o droped mine while using Toddler Lock (Great ap if you have young ones!!!) and it got a small crack in the side of the phone above the volume buttons but no other damage!!! I am one to get upset at stuff like this but I was very good and didn't fuss at him or anything I just dont let him hold it by himself when he "colors" on it any more. O yeah a few days before while we were in bed he wanted to "color daddy's phone" so I loaded toddler lock for him. Looked over a few min later and he was using a REAL crayon...AHHHHH but it all came off nice I told him he can ONLY use his finger no crayons...LOL but all is good now. I am going to get a full body ZAGG kit and also an otter box when they finally release it... wish they would hurry but I also want a great product. Also sucks being in Alaska nobody sells anything for this phone here Best Buy wont even order stuff for me makes me angery. And our Radio shacks are only Radio Shack dealers that deal with ATT only...BOOOO Okay done ranting...LOL

    I'm getting my evo today and I'm going to try it naked for a bit and see how it goes. I did order the seidio spring holster and slim extended battery which I'm getting today as well. One thing I am going to try is to cover the camera lense with an extra screen cover I have for my pre. Just have to find a way to cut the circle out perfectly.
