    I dropped my 5S the other day. Check out the photo. Even with the apple leather case. Paid $330 and replaced it to a brand new 5S from the apple store. Australian prices are ridiculous. Yet again it's a new phone so oh well. What's your story? So I dropped my 5S-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1401381148.416458.jpg

    Was only the screen damaged or was there more damage? You could have paid less for just the screen replacement.

    The Apple leather case won’t protect it from drops like you experienced. It’s more for looks and for protection from scrapes and scratches. At least you got a new phone (or at least, a refurb).

    This is why I invest in $30 glass screen protectors. OP I advise you to look into them. Both Spigen and iLoome are top choices.

    Nah they don't just replace the screen here yet. So they just swap the device for a new one.

    right, now that I know the leather case won't protect my phone properly it comes off again.
    Thanks for sharing, did you get the space grey again?

    Wow glad you got a new one. Looking at that photo, I think I died a little. Can't imagine how you felt when it happened.

    My friend had her 5S in her lap while she was driving & she forgot...you know the rest. She ended up getting a replacement. I'll post the pic she sent me of her old phone.

    When I smashed my 4S I just searched "iPhone 4S smashed screen repair" in Google and when on Google Maps, looked for local businesses and then went through them on price and reviews etc. Wasn't expensive and then invested in a screen protector for extra security.

    I know I can do that here as well. But when someone else opens up the phone, the warranty voids. And I have heard from many people that after the 3rd party screen replacement there has been other issues such as speakers or vibration doesn't work and when they take the phone to apple they have refused to repair it because the warranty has being void by the people who replaced the screen.
