    Has anyone dropped there DX coworker said he did nothing happened. I am just curious on how durable this phone is. I hate to worry about one slip up and the phone shattering like my other coworkers phone after one drop.

    I dropped mine out of a loader. It has a case on it. No damage here.

    I dropped mine once so far. I had my hands full and it slipped out of my grasp and fell from about waist height down onto a cement floor. No damage to the phone or the case, but I was freaked at the time lol.

    I think the cases help especially the snap on

    My girlfriend is like pigpen from charlie brown/peanuts. That's the character that exists in a whirlwind, right? She's made it a week with no damage. Dropped several times, believe you me. That's gotta mean something. Using the verizon pink rubbery case.

    I've dropped mine 3 times from about waist height and just popped my case open. I've freaked out each time

    The case works really well on it. Somehow, maybe because of the having to deal with the keyboard mechanism, the Droid 1's cases seemed bulky to me. I only tried a couple, though. Anyway, my Droid 1 is naked.

    I have not heard of any broken DX's from dropping but I was woundering the durability seems to be good so far in what I heard hear. But I still dont want to drop it. but I feal better that chances are It will still be in one piece afterwords

    My only concern is what the impact can do to the internals. So far mine is just as fast as day 1. No issues with software

    I would wonder the same thing. anything can happen if you drop the phone. I am not a big fan of cases. But I am going to have to get one just to help incase I do drop my phone. I have allways had junk phones this one I want to last.

    I can confirm that the screen will shatter if dropped. It slipped out of my hand and fell on my hardwood floors face-down and immediately shattered. There was no screen protector or case on it because i had owned it for all of 3 hours.
