    I dropped my X with both the BodyGlove snap on hardcase and the newer Verizon silicon case. I feel better with the BodyGlove case but its harder to snap on and off when plugging into the cardock. The silicon one just pops off. Both worked fine and no damage. What I', more concerned about is cracking the screen if I bump up against something while its in my pocket. To counter that I make sure the screen is always facing in

    The olly time your going to have a good chance of cracking it is if you drop it on one of the edges. I've dropped move with no case and its fine

    i took my hard plastic snap on case off to clean under it and i dropped in on the pavement. Chipped some of the plastic on the top left corner. SO pissed! Other than that, it works fine. No internal damage and the screen is durable as hell

    Yah I wouldn't have excepted that phone either. I would have made them get me a new one.
    I haven't dropped my X yet (knock on wood) but still have a silicone cover on it and insurance. I am very careful with my smart phones.
    As for my droid I have dropped it several times from about 4 feet onto very thin carpet in the restaurant I work in. I have a Body Glove hard case on it. No damage but it still scared the he'll out of me.
    On another note the silicon soft gel cases are better for protection of internal parts as they absorb more of the shock, where as hard cases transfer more shock in to the phone.

    I have my phone in a BodyGlove case with an anti-fingerprint screen on it.
    I once dropped it from a very short distance onto carpet, didn't think it would be damaged, and it wasn't in the slightest.

    I know some carry their X naked but I would at least put a crystal screen shield on it. Even with gorilla glass, scratches can happen. It's better for the scratch to be a 5-10 dollar issue then a permanent feature of your phone. Cheap insurance for a specific but cosmetically important issue, really.

    The BogyGlove case is very protective, but I also just like the way it feels. It also keeps my phone from sliding when I throw it on my dash/speedometer area without a dock (Go go GPS).

    Gorilla glass has absolutely nothing to do with shatter resistance. It is chemically hardened, to make it scratch RESISTANT. If anything, the hardening would make it MORE prone to shattering, since increased hardness oftentimes equals increased brittleness.
