    Dropped ol girl 4 times. Ultra slim case saved her each time. That said, might get insurance and roll naked with the 5Next.

    I think I've dropped it at least once that I can remember. Luckily it had a Speck CandyShell case on and didn't sustain any damage from the drop.

    Congrats IR, very well deserved.

    I think 3 times but only on to a wooden floor from the counter top and always with some case or the other one.

    No scratches, dents etc. I have been lucky.

    I've dropped my iPhone 5 several times, and twice onto an asphalt parking lot while exiting my vehicle, yet, the dings & nicks are barely noticeable, thankfully. The screen was never damaged.

    When I was rolling naked, not a single time. I added a Mophie Air case, and since then, I’ve dropped it 3 or 4 times... still pristine though, thanks to the battery case.

    The few times I dropped it, my iPhone was attached to the Earpods that were also in my ear. When I don't wear the Earpods there's no risk if dropping it. Go figure!....lol

    Perhaps we’re more careful when we’re dealing with a naked, untethered phone...

    3-4 times.

    But mostly in a case..

    Up until a few weeks ago, I finally dumped my Otterbox case as it was causing more damage inside....(Long story)


    Anyways. Rolling Naked a few times a week and no issues..Now using a Speck when I am at work.

    But honestly it's holding up well..

    Since I got this replacement in early June, I'd say like 5 or 6 times. It's pretty noticeable
    with the nicks. And the top right of my screen is kinda coming out of the bezel. You can
    hear a click. I'd rather destroy this thing to pieces to get a replacement from AC+

    Beware the apple insiders!!!

    - My iPhones not working
    Have you dropped this phone sir/ma'am?
    - No
    Aha! Your post on iMore says otherwise!!!

    But seriously though, I don't have a 5, my 4s got bounced once and died 6 months into a 24 month contract hence why I'm currently rocking a blackberry

    3 times. Each time broke the case but not a scratch on the phone! And this has been since I got the phone in January.
