    As in a similar post about someone dropping her iPhone X, the unthinkable happened. I wasn't paying attention, and set my phone down on a surface that had a slight slope to it. I've noticed this before, and on previous occasions, I managed to avoid this. This time, as I already mentioned, I was distracted, and I watched my phone slide off and plop down onto the floor.

    It felt like I was moving in slow motion as I scooped it up. It landed on it's back side, and luckily all is well. No damage whatsoever. I have a Spigen Crystal Shell on it, and am very pleased with it. Phew... that was too close for comfort.

    That's why I always case my phones up. Replacing the back glass is extra costly and I'm in the middle of moving into a new place and can't really afford to get my iPhone fixed.

    Glad you avoided disaster.

    I have to be very observant of where I put my 8+ when not in its case. I've had it unexpectedly slide off surfaces such as couch arms, papers on a table, etc. to the floor.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have AppleCare or any other form of insurance on it ?

    Glad your baby is ok!
    Some of these phones are much more vulnerable that others to this, so glad your X survived.
    I have a Speck clear case on my iPhones which seem to give excellent protection.

    No I do not! I wanted it, my husband didn’t and after buying the phone, I didn’t want to press my luck.
