    what kind of surface did it fall onto? i have the same case. i've dropped it out of my hand onto a concrete surface while walking (so maybe 3-4 feet?) and it only scratched the seidio case a bit (lucky!). sad to see yours took a beating :/

    i'm not so worried about the screen cracking anymore if it ever does as Sprint's new policy will cover it for $35 and i don't even have insurance (with insurance it's free, no deductible either).

    I have the Otterbox and I've dropped mine twice now getting out of my lifted Jeep and fell on the pavement. Not a scratch on it. Or the case for that matter.

    Have had my Evo in a Seidio Innocase II and Clip since day 1. Have dropped it several times (I don't baby my phone - that's the point of the case - I don't abuse it just normal wear) and have only made nicks in the case. Never a single issue to my phone. Drops from my waist (3'), shoulder height (5.5') and from inside my Nissan Armada to street/pavement a few times (4-5') and no Evo issues.

    I see a lot of people say the Evo is fragile, but with this case it's held up quite nicely.

    I still don't have any scratches or paint wear from the case like others, and I wouldn't even care as long as it prevents true damage. I never take the case off anyway.

    BTW, if you case broke from a fall, contact Seidio directly and ask if they can replace. They might not, but they also might. I've had good experience with them via their account on this forum. Seems like an actual broken case might be cause for replacement.

    Awesome to hear. Yeah I have the Seidio Innocase II with the rugged package as well. I use just the Innocase II when in the office but when I help the in-laws out at their rental store, I use the rugged case. I have dropped it and beat it up in the rugged case with the phone still looking good. I would pick Seidio over Otterbox any day. I will say though, look on Amazon for better prices. Got my package for 46 bucks when it was near 80 bucks on Seidio online.

    My Evo took a flipping 4 foot fall and smacked loudly face down onto semi jagged bathroom tile wearing no case and had absolutely no damage at all whatsoever. I was shocked. I thought for sure that my screen was gone. It was loud. I do have a screen protector on it but that is all. :)

    Mine fell from the edge of the bathroom sink to the tile floor (about 3 feet) while wearing the Seidio case, and sustained no damage. It almost made up for the fact that the case mercilessly scuffed and scratched the edges of my Evo prior to that, though I admittedly do have to thank it for possibly saving me from a $100 deductible.
