    Well, it happened to me today as I was getting out of my car. Forgot it was on my lap and there she went. Smack face down on the concrete. I didn’t even want to turn it over and look at it, but all is well. Obviously had a case on it and the screen protector did it’s job and got some minor cracks on it and didn’t harm the phone. Had a back up tempered glass protector and slapped it on. Whew!
    It’s always better to be safe than sorry
    I’m glad to hear that nothing major happened to your X.

    Ouch! He should put on a screen protector next time.
    Well, in that kind of drop I don’t think it would have helped so much. This is the demonstration you need a case.

    I dropped mine, discussed elsewhere. I plan for that to be the one and only time.

    Dropped on many occasions. Once flying out of my truck while getting out and onto the cement. Not a scratch on the case or phone. Tech21 tactical. This case really does absorb energy.

    I dropped mine on Monday, and yes it cracked the screen. It landed face down on concrete. It was a 2-2 1/2 ft drop. I had a Sonix glass screen protector on it, but both the protector and the screen cracked. Have an appt at the Apple Store on Wednesday to get it fixed.

    I had a Totallee on. I know they don’t provide drop protection, so that’s the price I have to pay I guess.

    I dropped my iPhone X twice a day a few days after I got it. I dropped it to the wood, and that time I didn't get a case for it, but thankfully, the screen just got a few slight scratches

    I dropped it at home on a laminate floor without a case. The phone is fine.

    I dropped my iPhone on cement luckily with an outer box case ( thank you Jesus).
    I carefully inspected the phone and thankfully no damage.

    Anyone else dropped there phone yet?
    Often. But it’s in a case, so no damage.

    A couple of times, with a case (on tile even) and without a case.

    Phone is pristine.

    I’m currently using my X naked so I’ll be more careful with it

    I did drop mine about a month ago at the grocery store while trying to check off something in Wunderlist. At first I didn't think anything of it, mid-chest or so drop (roughly 4 feet I'm 5'11"). I'm not sure what it landed on initially but then it went skidding face down across the sealed concrete floor a few feet. Then I remembered "oh, it's in a Spigen Liquid Air because I don't normally drop my phone and I wanted a minimal case" Oops, well it actually survived totally intact. The Liquid Air IS rated for milspec drops but milspec is actually a sheet of plywood on top of concrete (people don't realize that unless they read up on it they just hear "4 foot drop"). So I was definitely worried about it dropping onto straight up concrete. The glass on both sides was intact and no damage (scrapes or dents) to the stainless band. I can't even tell on the case where it landed (I suspect it landed face down then skidded).

    I think a lot of the damage potential depends on how and what the phone lands on. Everything Apple Pro did some drop tests back in October in a parking garage and from waist height the X actually survived multiple drop angles intact and he had to drop it from head+ height to cause real damage. However some other channels dropping on different materials didn't fare as well.
