So my OG droid was tough as anything. I dropped that thing so many times (no case, no screen protector) and nothing happened. After 2 years it was like new except for worn paint around the edges. Thumbs up to gorilla glass.
Now I got nexus a few weeks ago and today as I got out of the car the phone dropped out of my pocket perhaps 1ft onto the ground and the glass is smashed.
Please please please everyone get a case, get a screen protector, this thing is FRAGILE! I used to laugh at all the iphone owners sporting either smashed glass or thick heavy cases that hid the beautiful phone inside. Now I am not laughing. Seems kind of ludicrious that people purchase these phone often based on how they look, weight, size and then they have to cover them up with thick heavy cases to protect them. That's how it goes. I guess.
Any suggestions what I can do other than pay another $650 for a new one that I can't afford..?
