    My cat knocked mine off the arm of the sofa onto the floor. It was in the Seidio Surface case, so no ill effects.

    I've read of a few folks that have and they do break the screen frequently. So it is not invincible!!

    Here's someone that did drop it (on purpose): (you'll have to watch some other parts of the torture test first though).

    The glass does not prevent against scratches at all. My phone slide down on a hardwood floor and the sand particles on the floor caused 3 large scratches on the display.

    dropped it face first on a hard dirty gritty tile floor. Had a screen protector on. Screen protector had a huge scratch but screen was ok and scratched the aluminum edge near the bottom. other than that ok and after that put a case on it and will keep it on there.

    Went to get mine from at&t. The salesman was snapping the battery cover on, flipped it over and the screen was broken in 3 places.. I'm very glad that it happened before I left the store

    Nope... he wasn't strong, didn't hardly touch the phone... and it broke.. probably a flaw in the glass...who knows. Either way, I'm not thrilled..

    Though it is a good thing he did it and found the flaw. But that brings me to my tips of the day.

    1) Never let a sales rep touch your phone. They seem to have butter fingers when touching YOUR phone

    2) insurance is your friend

    3) When taking it out of the box do it in a carpeted area and as soon as you remove it from the box and install the battery and door do not leave the carpet area until a phone case and screen protector is on your phone
