    Tell us where and how! Case no case. And did it sustain any damage.

    iPhone 6+

    Apple Case Black

    Dropped it about 3.5 feet onto concrete and hit the corner. Damaged the leather a lot. Phone was fine.

    Note: You really make some useless threads - FYI

    My girlfriend dropped my 6 (first fall ever and was inside a apple silicon case) yesterday about 2 feet. Luckily it landed on some dirty clothes. Was pissed at first but realized it was just a accident.

    A couple weeks ago my girlfriend dropped her 6 (bout 3 feet) on my wooden floor. The phone was naked but ended up being fine.

    As you can tell, she is very clumsy.

    Dropped while on treadmill. Very thin case, no damage...though I nearly fell off myself trying to retrieve it. :p

    (For the record, I've dropped every iDevice I've owned, and knock on wood, not one of them has been damaged beyond a small nick or two. Yes, I insure them all.)

    Dropped it about 3rd time (klutz) 2 weeks ago. Had a Casemate case on it, which have normally served me well over the years. First time I noticed a crack on the corner, but phone did fall on concrete. Phone was fine. Dropped recently,wood floor, the 2 weeks ago, and case broke where it cracked at corner. Phone was fine. Gonna contact Casemate as seriously, 2months and case cracks and breaks?

    Yes, I have AppleCare

    I dropped it on my laptop when I tried to pick it up. A tiny dot of the corner looks like it was rubbed off. This phone is pretty slippery. I almost dropped it about 3 times while I was waiting for the case I wanted to be back in stock.

    I've dropped my 6+ several times and only use the leather case. Ironically enough, the shortest and most padded drop was on an airplane, from the seat to the floor, that inflicted the most damage (a very small dent right above the charge port).

    Dropped my 6 Plus from about 3 feet screen down on concrete. Single hairline crack from home button up the whole left side. It was in in Apple Leather case, but screen down, no case would have helped it. Since it was a single hairline crack I got it replaced by Apple under warranty.

    I dropped it on the soft bed if that counts ;D. Otherwise no, my phone hasn't been dropped yet.

    It fell when I was trying to charge it I placed it on the protruding outlet. There are noticable scratches on the left corner on the side.

    I don't actually care if my 6 gets scratched.

    Dropped your 6, 6+ yet ° ° ?

    I've dropped my 6 plus several times now. The worst was the other day. I dropped it while getting out of my Tahoe. Fell about 4 feet flat on its back. Black leather Apple case had gravel stuck in it. After a couple days of use the leather has mostly healed up by itself and the phone didn't skip a beat. I love my 6 plus.

    Dropped my 6 plus from almost 6 feet onto concrete. Didn't crack screen but scuffed an edge and made the display almost separate. Sent it in for a replacement. Good thing I bought 2.


    Noticeably my second 6+ is kinda heavier and the vibration is soft and the battery doesn't last as long as my other one. I might send this one in for a replacement after it gets back

    My bag fell off the chair at a restaurant onto a carpeted floor yesterday. My 6 plus was inside but it was in a case and it was a minor fall, not very far about the distance from my knee to my foot and I'm only 5"3 so don't have long legs! Plus the bag absorbed everything. It was in the Apple leather case at the time. I changed the case for my phone yesterday and in the process I inspected the phone. It didn't have any marks on it. I've never dropped it whilst using it.

    I dropped my 6+ from about 2 feet onto a hardwood floor. I don't use a case and it is perfectly fine.

    I haven't dropped mine yet. But a buddy dropped his today at about 4 feet, glass shattered.

    The truth has been spoken.

    Moderators should outright ban the OP already.

    Dropped your 6, 6+ yet ° ° ?

    Dropped it while I was getting my eyebrows done. Had to be about 2-3 feet off the bench thing. My phone would've been totaled if it didn't have a glass screen protector on it. Guess I'll be using a case from now on... But I'm insured so idk lol.

    P.S. There is a small nick near the top right corner.

    I owned a 3GS and 5 and didn't have a single drop in 5 years. Currently have a 6+ with a Tech21 Classic Check case and Tech Armor Ballistic Glass screen protector. Dropped twice.

    First drop was 5 ft. onto grass/dirt. The phone landed on the top corner and didn't suffer any damage.

    Second drop was 5 ft. onto smooth concrete. Phone landed face down and bounced. I haven't taken the case off but the phone doesn't seem to be damaged. I think the case and SP did their job.

    Oh, and I lost count of the number of times I have dropped the phone on my face while laying in bed, web surfing.

    I've dropped my 6 less than other phones. The back seems pretty dry.

    So what's the purpose of your poll and your "I know you did" in your OP?
