I dropped my DNA today, and cracked the corner. I'm going back to the Maxx, but I love the speed and will miss the screen and beats.
Screen is extremely fragile. DNA is my third droid (original, droid x) the DNA screen shattered in under 5 days. Both of my other droids lasted two years each without a case and were fine. Buyer Beware!
Ouch. I'm really sorry to hear that.
Within a month of owning my Droid DNA I had two very fine scratches in the display. In the years I owned my Motorola Droid 1 and D2G I never had any scratches, even with some rather severe abuse (including running one over with a Jeep on concrete). Now my Droid DNA looks much like zb2013's after a fall of just 27" onto the edge.
A couple days after getting my DNA, I noticed a small, semicircle shaped crack in the left side of the front glass. It was so small, in fact, that
it wasn't even visible when I had a cheapo silicon case from ebay on, needless to say it didn't affect my view of the screen at all. So I didn't
think anything of it. Well a couple months later, after having my phone in my pocket ALL DAY, no use whatsoever, I pulled my phone out and
the screen had a tragically beautiful pattern of shattering, that very obviously stemmed from, you guessed it, that tiny fracture in the digitizer.
(I will try and get a picture up to show the evidence.)
LESSON: Pay attention to even the smallest defects.
I have since replaced the screen (not that hard) but I learned my lesson and hope this helps someone avoid the same circumstances.
I have a silicon case from Verizon and a screen protector and have only dropped it once, but it survived unharmed.
