    :eek:

    Was it in a case at least?

    Hope you got lucky and came away unscathed.

    I'll drop it in about 8 months after that newness / infatuation period has worn off. But I've never broken / shattered / heavily dented my phone before. I have good grip practice from... from... gripping other things.

    I have managed to drop my 6 plus several times so far, fortunately every time has been onto either my bed or the couch.

    why do people so fixated on getting a case?

    When you pay 1000 dollars for a phone (a portable device), it shouldn't break that easily.

    Do you buy a case for your Walkman? or your watch?

    I never use cases and have never dropped a phone to the point that I broke anything on it.

    with that said, I really feel like at some point I will drop this due to the size/thinness and weight.

    I was out visiting with my family last night. Mom nailed her water bottle sending a stream across the table right to my phone. It was in a case. My big one. Whew. This 128 plus was 3 hours old. I think that counts. The case prevented water from entering any ports or getting on the phone itself. It was not like dropping the phone under water but it was close enough.

    Want your phone to last? Get a good case. I'm sure my first drop will be before too long. Never damaged any of my phones because of the case. Well worth it.

    Yup I used to have a case for my old Panasonic walkman when they cost similar amounts to the iphone. I also had a case for my old dumb phone.I also have a case/shell on both my macbook pros and my ipad. I don't wear a watch so I can't comment on that.

    I've never cracked or broken an iPhone..I haven't dropped my iPhone 6 yet. However, I dropped my iPhone 5 last year getting out of my car while it was in my pocket. The case was a loose silicone one and my phone fell out of both my pocket and the case and onto pavement! Luckily it was fine somehow.

    Family member was taking a picture of the wife and I.. they dropped the phone and the screen shattered =(. At least I had AppleCare. Now I have a case too because I can't trust other people.

    Dropped once on concrete. Have had a case on since Minute 1 so no damage.

    On the weekend when I'm on the couch I'll take it out of the case and enjoy the nakedness for awhile.

    I dropped my 6 plus the first time I even got it out of the box. Dropped it about 1 foot on kitchen counter. And I had a case to put it in. Cause just a smudge mark. Can't belive it. I had case ready to put in and dropped it. It's slippery
