    And my heart almost stopped. I thought for sure after it flew out of my pocket and bounced off raw cement three times the screen was shattered. But the screen is flawless. It did however crack the bezel on a corner and dented the plastic on two corners real bad. Cosmetic. Started running with sweats on towards my basement stairs after hearing my three year old come out if his room after bedtime. I think its time for some sort of case that doesn't effect the beautiful screen. I'll change up my car dock to something else. That was soooo close to being so much worse. I'm still pissed though lol.

    Well when it comes to your kids....I didn't realize it was in my pocket....I usually treat my phone like a raw egg.

    Stuff happens. We all have dropped stuff before. The best case for drops:

    1) otter box defender

    2) seidio convert case

    3) otter box commuter

    4) incipio (the one i linked above)



    Thickest cases:

    1) otterbox defender
    2) seidio convert case
    3) otterbox commuter
    4) incipio

    If you work in a harsh environment grab the first. But if you just want a thin case that does not have a lot of bulk but offer decent amount of protection then grab the incipio.

    I went with the Defender, it turns the pretty phone into a tank but I'm clumsy.

    $600 or his son....I wonder which one he cares more about....

    Things happen and it's situations like these that are unpredictable. He wasn't careless, he was being an attentive father
