    So for those of you with your phone in a case, doesn't really matter to me what case but you can say, how many times have you dropped your phone? From what heights? How many times has it broke the glass on the front or back? Those going naked are welcome also.

    I've dropped mine a few times lately. Naked and onto wooden floors from waist height. Not a mark, scratch and no broken glass.

    Can not count the number of times I've dropped mine from waist/chest height. I've also dropped it a number of times from 12-15 feet at work. It has always been in my cruzerlite case. No breaks or marks of any kind.

    Mine has been dropped a handful of times from waist-high and from the bathroom counter without damage. It hits either vinyl tile or wood floors. I have a diztronic TPU (?) case and screen protector

    I've had my phone since November and i've dropped it exactly ZERO times. I'm part of a the rare breed that is careful with shiny pieces of glass :D

    Dropped getting out of a cab from my lap with a bumper. Slight nick in the upper right chrome rip, and about 10px bleed through on the screen upper right.

    Needless to say its in a full case now and I hope I don't drop it again!

    I am VERY aware when my phone is in my hands at ALL times. I always watch when walking past doors to insure that someone doesn't opn a door on me catching me off guard which in turn causes me drop my phone. When I'm at work and I'm outside smoking, I make sure to stand in the grass and not on the concrete.

    I'm also the type that has ALWAYS had cases on my phones. Cases don't bother me. In fact I think they aide in grip and add more girth to something that should't be that thin to begin with. I don't understand the whole thickness thing. Having a very thin phone seems like a bad thing to me. Nothing to grip. But that's just me I guess.
    I also keep screens on the front and the back. Having a screen does not bother me one bit like it does some people. If you get the right screen, it feels just like stock glass but also aids in keeping the screen cleaner. Aside from that I firmly believe that screens DO help in preventing screens from breaking under certain instances. There's been plenty of videos and speculation around that and logically and scientifically it makes sense.

    I dropped my phone yesterday for the first time. Luckily I was crouched over and it was only from about 2 feet. But luckily I keep the OEM bumper on my phone and It walked away with zero issues. After trying several slim cases, I always resort back to the bumper.

    Also, If anyone is interested Im thinking about hauking my Ringke slim and Ringke hybrid cases.
