    I will definitely be getting one but looking at the complexity of the back, I am betting that repairs of the I5 will be very expensive.

    Is there a phone you recommend dropping? The only dropping I do is calls.

    How about don't drop any phone.. I'm tired of 80% of the iPhones on eBay are freakin broken screens, cracked glass, etc.

    Accidents happen...I baby they hell out of my electronics and I managed to drop my 4S once and it cracked a little off the screen. You can't just say don't drop your phone...most of the time people don't plan on dropping their phones.

    I haven't ever dropped any of my phones significantly enough to break them, however I have had some close calls. Definitely hitting up the Verizon store to get a temporary case or something when I take delivery of my 5 next week.

    In order to question someone's intelligence you first have to know how to read the statement.

    If we consider an iPhone 5 a dun duh duh, and we are told: "Don't drop that dun duh duh", then by the transitive property, giving advice to not drop the iPhone 5 is accurate and informative.

    It's sarcasm.

    Sarcasm means "a joke you don't understand"

    i think he meant, that you're thread is pointless. At what point are you gonna drop a phone on purpose anyway? you cannot "avoid" accidents completely

    Any old Nokia. But that's if you want a new floor.

    Already cracked my 4S, definitely not trying to crack another phone. Apple wants to charge me $200 for a refurbished replacement, either that or I have to pay a $120 insurance fee with Verizon. Maybe I'm in luck now though that the 4S is seeing a price drop.

    Perhaps to stop the flaming the OP could have chosen a better thread title, but their question is valid.

    Swapping out a 4s back plate is easy but is this the same with the 5 !

    Well that video shows the S3 is as weak as the 4s. I don't understand the sudden hype about S3 going on in the world. But eh, that's just me I guess.

    On a serious note, I didn't see any mention of Gorilla Glass 2 - does anyone know if the iPhone 5 has it?

    Use a case? I didn't plan on dropping my phone. My otterbox case makes sure my phone looks like new when I drop it.

    Did you drop it on your face while using it in your bed?

    I did have a case on it when it dropped. Probably prevented it from shattering completely.
