    I am a first time large screen phone user. Dropped mine on the very first day. Ouch. :(

    Didn't for the first week, then it finally happened. It was just a kitchen floor though, and only from about a foot. No noticeable nicks or anything. I've since dropped it two more times, but just on carpet. (Do those even count?)

    I'm generally not a dropper, but its bound to happen.

    I haven't yet, but I made the HUGE mistake of letting someone else drop my 6 Plus. We were in a touristy place and they insisted on taking a picture of me there using my phone so I'd have a selfie to post (they had good intentions, and even though I didn't want the picture, I didn't want to be rude and say no).

    She's a Galaxy S3 user and her reason previously for not getting an iPhone was the screen was too small, and was commenting about how nice and big the 6+ screen is, so I ASSUMED she'd know how to deal with a big phone. Wrong.

    I pose, she lines up the shot, and as her thumb moves to press the button, her hands slip and I see my phone fall. "Whoops!"

    Had to grit my teeth and act calm as she picks it up and I walk back over to inspect the damage. Butterfingers was extremely apologetic. Thankfully, it was on grass and moist soil, so the corner got a bit muddy but it cleaned right off. No scratches. Whew.

    Between that and to co-worker who insisted on putting my phone in his pocket, naked, WITH HIS KEYS JINGLING ALL OVER IT, I don't care about being rude anymore.

    I dropped it for the first time this past Saturday at a tailgate. Dropped from my pocket face down on gravel. Luckily, I had put on a tech armor glass screen protector. It shattered the screen protector, but the screen was perfectly intact. I then dropped the phone again this morning getting into my truck, but thankfully it landed on the side of the case and just scratched the case up. I'm usually good at never dropping my phone although Saturday's incident may have been caused by a little too much to drink :p

    Unfortunately for myself, my iPhone case arrived a day after my iPhone thus the drop on the first day caused a scratch on the side of my phone. But i guess i can live with that.

    Haha I usually don't drop my phones much but the first weekend I had it I dropped it twice. I've dropped it sense too but everyone it's been in a case so no damage.

    I guess there needs to be some getting used to properly grip the new phone.

    I had a coworker that dropped his 6+ and it suffered nasty damage. Luckily his Apple Care covered it and he got a new phone no questions asked.

    Agreed he was lucky. I don't have AppleCare but perhaps I should reconsider.

    The only reason I may not want Apple Care might be if I plan to sell it within a year for the next gen iPhone. That's what I did with my previous iPhone 5S. However, for this phone, I foresee myself using it for 2 years. :p

    I am still trying to figure out how to best use this phone with one hand. I know I am asking for trouble. :D

    Not yet but I did freak my husband out by taking pics while inside the Hyatt Embarcadero from the highest guest room floor down into the atrium. It being the tallest atrium in a hotel... anywhere I think?

    Well... yeah. It's pretty far down. Hehehe.

    If I'd dropped it, I would've cried, but I couldn't resist. :)

    Well, I had a grip strong enough to bend it. ;)

    I kid. I kid. I scared myself. I only did it once.

    bound to happen. I've dropped mine, in the silicone case no damage.

    It's just like cycling when you clip in for the first time,everyone falls.

    I've a 6+ and I love how it feels on the hands without the Apple leather case. But it's really slippery and so hard for me not to drop it if I don't support the bottom by my pinky.

    He might be able to take it back to Apple anyway. Sometimes they can be forgiving.

    That is painful to consider. There's always screen replacement, I suppose.
