    Default Fragile 6s Screen?

    Her phone bent? I don't know of any bending reports of the 6s. Can you provide proof?

    It's unfortunate people have grown to believe their products shouldn't crack when dropped on cement. I expect it to crack if I drop it on the pavement and I'm pleasantly surprised if it doesn't.

    In any case, I dropped my iPhone 6 many MANY times with and without a case and didn't have an issue. Went to sit down one day at my friends shop, phone slipped and fell less than 2 feet and hit the cement face first. It cracked on the corner. I've owned an iPhone since the 3G, first time that's happened. They're called accidents and bound to happen.
    Yea coming from wireless I've heard people grateful that their screen protector cracked and it wasn't their phone lol. This is a new one.

    I've dropped my earlier iPhones from far greater heights and never cracked a screen. I've even dropped my work iPhone which isn't kept in a case. The iPhone was in a Tech22 case as a temp measure until I could get a Lifeproof, when they become available. The screen also was protected with a Gorilla Glass screen protector installed by Verizon.

    I'm really pissed. I'm wondering if the new screen is just more fragile than the ones on my earlier iPhones because of the pressure sensitivity, or whether this was just dumb luck.

    I'm going back to Verizon today. I put a claim in for insurance coverage (Asurion purchased through Verizon), and the deductible still is $229. Apple wants $129 to replace the screen. I'm hoping Verizon will offer something better.

    In any event, I am losing the Tech21 case and buying an Otterbox Defender. I prefer a waterproof case and used a Preserver on my old 5s, but a heavy duty case appears to be a necessity with the 6s.

    Anyone else have issues?

    Yes I have had iPhone 4 and iPhone 5c was my last one and had it 3 and half years only dropped twice and just had a very thin line crack. But 4 weeks ago I bought new iPhone 6 and Monday I accidentally dropped and its totally shattered (and this one had screen protector) . in my opinion the screens have got very thinner and not stronger than my previous I phones 4 and 5.

    my daughter has the otterbox case on her Iphone...she sat on it and it cracked the back of the phone (through the case) and she was told that it was not covered and showed her where it says so in the fine print, also for water damage... so read the fine print first.
