    How did it feel dropping your new phone for the first time? Anyone shatter their screen?

    I finally dropped my phone (with a case) but I dived for it just because I'm dramatic. I had a "nightmare" last night that I cracked my screen in Mexico and couldn't get it replaced. It was horrible. Lol.

    Unfortunately. I dropped it Saturday. Not even a bad fall compared to the ones I have had with previous iPhones, but it must have hit the right spot because it completely shattered the screen.

    Ouch. What phone was it? I'm curious because the 6s and 6s Plus have held up so well in drop tests.

    It was a 64 GB rose gold 6s plus. I was really shocked too - it wasn't a bad fall at all. I didn't even immediately reach and get it because I had seen the same videos. I'm sure this was just a situation where it fell at that perfect angle and hit just right to break it.

    Sorry to hear! There goes the whole "I don't need a case" argument. AppleCare?

    One day last week, dropped my 6s Plus from my pocket. Fell about 3 feet on a concrete driveway, was in a case with glass screen protector. Got lucky, still in perfect condition

    My phone dropped from about 3 or so feet up. Landed flat on the screen onto tile. No cracks scratches or anything. Like new. I have a super thin case, so the way it fell would have made no difference if the case wasn't on it.

    My phone is not the issue, but rather my iPad, I drop that sucker ALL the time, BUT I have a really good case on it for just such occasions. The worst is when I'm on my couch lounging and browsing and starting to nod, the BUMP, CRASH wakes me right up! LOL So far so good!

    I dropped mine last week from a small table, wasn't very high. It landed face down on a wood floor but everything was okay, had a case on. Still I almost had a heart attack.

    Didn't really drop it but I made a u-turn too fast and my 6s+ decided it had wings, took off from the center console, hit the pax door and landed on the floor under the dash. No damage but the scuff on my saddle brown leather case looks natural so...win.

    Have dropped the phone many times and I only use tempered glass protector. So far only small crack on the bottom corner of the screen. And that is on the protector.

    Yes. Dropped mine on the sidewalk but nothing happened. I have an otter box commuter case on my 6s Plus and there's not even a scratch on that. I don't think it would have survived the drop to the pavement without it.
