    Not all drops are the same but this can at least show real world examples.
    This can help you increase your odds when buying a case.

    1)Phone model
    2) Case
    3) Estimated height
    4) Surface dropped on
    5) Estimate how it landed (corner/front flat etc.)
    6) Damage/ non damage to phone and case

    Here are mine

    5S
    Spigen Tough Armor
    6-foot
    Concrete
    corner
    No damage to phone or case


    5
    Speck Candy Shell
    4-foot
    Concrete
    corner
    No damage to phone and light dent/scratch to case

    Naked since the very first iPhone, multiple drops to each one, I lay my phone on any surface without losing sleep over it. Nick here and a nick there, I always get great $ when it comes time to sell. I also have applecare+ which means that a new phone is just an apple store away and also adds to the resale value.
