    I have had mine for about 2 months and never dropped it. I keep mine in a case with screen protector. Have the 64gb version in white. Not a mark on it, very anal. Also own several (many) top of the line Android devices I had to check out the iPhone 5, love it. It's a little too tied down to ITunes but still love it.

    After never dropping a phone I actually dropped my iPhone 5 in the toilet last week, a toilet full of pee. Had to retire her and used my upgrade to buy me a new iPhone cuz I had no insurance. I got me a 32gb and I couldn't be happier also got a case and insurance lol.

    Dropped my phone from about 2 or 3 feet after that, luckily the speck case protected it quite well.

    I had a freak happening with my iPhone5. I was swatting at some pesky insects and accidently let the phone go. Before the phone hit the ground I swatted at it and knocked it in the grass and bounced. No dings, no dirt, no scratches and no cracks. Thank you reflexes!

    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.
    white or black iphone 5?

    I'm assuming you meant "from an owner of a black iPhone 5"...

    Still, the description in my previous reply stands. I may take a photo of my iPhone 5 with my DSLR camera and post it later.

    No cases used here. This is very, very rare to happen to me. Whenever I get a replacement,
    I still ain't gonna use a case. I hate them. Probably would have been the same result with a
    case. Face first smack dab on the tile floor.

    That looks bad, hopefully you put a screensaver over it to protect your fingers from the pieces of glass.
