    I had to share with everyone the fact that I actually dropped my atrix from about 4 feet onto my tile floor at work and low and behold

    NOT A SCRATCH ON IT !!

    I couldn't believe it!

    This thing is built tough..... Ifixit just did a tear down and found that the screen is not glued down to the LCD ..... Plus the plastic back absorbed the shock of the fall. I hope this phone proves to be durable.

    Every phone makes it through getting dropped on its back... Give it a faceplant or a corner hit, and report back..

    Dropped mine like 2 feet yesterday and and it landed on one of the corners and bounced thank god not a single scratch! One thing I really like about ATRIX is the back is like a built in case. The edges curve around and go over the corners so if I drop it on the top, bottom, back or the corners I can just swap out the battery cover and bam! Brand new phone!

    Honestly it does not feel built well in my opinion. Its very light, the battery cover is thin, exterior appears mostly plastic....this is the only thing making me miss my blackberry torch ( it felt like a well made device, just like a iphone 4 feels like a well made device).

    but they are just all show no go ...Im still more than happy with my atrix.
