    OK...I'm getting downright cocky now. This is crazy. True story.

    I'm installing a video card in an employees PC. It's in a pretty cramped area. I set my phone down on the opposite corner of the desk. I'm working on this PC... Can't really get to it. Set it on the desk which is covered in files. I slide the PC and it starts to move all the files. This whole area is being cleaned. Slide it a little more. I see my phone move to the edge. It's near teetering (had to use teetering...how often do you get to use that word?).
    I still need a smidge more room. Do I go grab my phone? NO!
    I proceed to say (in my head) EFF IT! push a little more and intentionally...knowingly...knock my phone to the floor!!!!!!
    It's perfect. Do I need to even say that anymore? ;)

    I don't know if I've ever typed out the word teetering, so I thought I would give it a try.... Nice! It flows easily on the keyboard -- teetering..., yep, thanks! I think I'll try to come up with a use for that today when emailing a client LOL!
    My biggest fear with dropping these shatter-proof screens is what happens to the innards? There's another word I don't think I've ever typed out... I'm not as concerned about the screen (though, see my post in the Z Force forum -- pic included), but am still concerned with knocking something loose on the inside. When I dropped my MAXX, yes the screen broke, but it acted extremely flaky after and had to be replaced.

    No one's posted here in long time. Hmmm....why is that? Because it's really true? Because drops mean nothing to this phone? They really are shatterproof. I thought of this thread as I was walking into the bathroom. Dropped my phone when I opened the door. Phone crashed to the floor.
    I didn't even reach for it. I don't move one muscle toward cushioning the fall of the phone. Why? Because I know it will take it with ease This phone is amazing. I love it. It is so freeing to not have to worry about cracked screens. No case. No screen protector. Well played Moto. I want to try another brand. I really like LG. But until someone makes a shatterproof screen...it's going to always be Moto... For me.

    Couldn't agree more Pere. I was very interested in a Pixel as a replacement for my Turbo 2. But having a Shattershield screen was important to me, so I opted for the Z Force. I can't imagine not owning a Shattershield phone from this point on.

    I haven't dropped my phone in a long time, but the last time I did I didn't even blink an eye. Picked it up, wiped the dust off the screen and went about my business.

    Always drop my phone. And now they put glass... on the back? Looking at you, G6.

    Was bailing out my basement last week, during a torrential rain storm, when my phone fell out of my holster and took a swim. Battery mod was attached. I scooped it up, dried it off, powered it down and let the two pieces sit face down for a couple of hours on a towel. Powered it back up and everything is working like it should.
    Yes, I'm lucky. Yes, I'm so very thankful! Love my phone

    Glad to hear everything is working fine after the short swim.
