I know this subject has been beaten to death but I just wanted to report on my experience. I've had my 6 plus SG since about a month after launch. It's been in an Apple black leather case and has a screen protector (the anti glare $18 ripoff they sell at the Apple Store) since day 1. I also added an extreme guard back protector (1.99 on eBay) a few weeks after just to give an anti chafe protection from the case. I sell my phone every year and try to keep it pristine. Anyway...I have dropped this thing pretty hard several times and have had no damage. The leather case is nice because scuffs and scratches kind of heal themselves after a day or so of use. I have 2 boys under the age of 4 and they've stepped on my phone while it is laying on the couch or bed and no problems. The other day I stood on it by accident, no problem. I've had it in tighter dress pants pockets and sat down and no problem. I'm not saying I've totally abused it but it's had its chances to get bent or broken and it's still perfect. I really like this phone and I'm glad I took the chance on it considering all the crazy bending reports leading up to my purchase.
