Cool Have You Cracked Your iPhone 5 Yet?

Just curious as to how many iPhone 5 users have already cracked their screen, or damaged their device in any way. It's always interesting to hear about the overall sturdiness of the newest devices, and what they can endure.

Obviously one of the biggest problems with iPhones are cracked screens, but is anyone having any buttons failing, poor battery life, or something else?

I'd like to hear some good stories!

I'm having some horrible debouncing issues from time to time with my sleep button. Battery is meh. Might go to the apple store tomorrow.

I'm surprised you didn't crack your screen! That says a lot about how much of a beating the i5 can take.

I have dropped it twice. Once from waist height - no issues. Not even a ding or a scuff.

Last night it dropped from less than 12" and the screen is completely shattered and the top right corner looks like it was hit with a hammer.

Both drops onto a tile floor. Go figure...

Your first drop likely setup the all out shatter for the second drop. (1st drop weakened the glass).
