    he doesn't seem to blame the phone or samsung, until the end of the article anyway. the funny part is that he freely admits to beating the crap out of his prior phones and his tablet, but he somehow failed to put a case on his latest phone.

    A very dumb story. I still don't see the point except if you tend to do stupid things with your phone it may break.

    What a pointless article. Take care of your stuff and it'll be clean. My nephew dropped mine onto marble and I'm lucky enough that it didn't get a scratch.

    So, he had a hand me down with a crack in it, then he dropped it from 5 feet onto a hard floor.

    .... What did he expect to happen?

    Wow...I could show him pics of my Droid X1 with a cracked screen. Or maybe he goes by the Gorilla Glass is indestructible philosophy? That coulda happened to any other phone, Gorilla Glass included.

    I will probably break down and get a case for my Nexus (assuming I don't return it due to unrelated issues). A month ago I dropped my OG droid nearly 25' off of a roof onto a wood deck. It bounced and fell a few more feet onto landscape rock. Battery popped out, but other than that it was fine. I can't image any possible scenario where my nexus would survive a similar fall without cracking in at least three places.
