i bought the 10000mAh battery with case earlier this year and it's been great. i can abuse that battery like no other and it just won't die.

however, the real reason for this post is about the case.

i recently had a potato moment and left my phone on the roof of my friends car that i was working on. went for a test drive, out of my neighborhood, down teh main streeet at about 35 mph and suddenly i hear a weird little noise and look up in the mirror to see my phone bounce down the back window, off the trunk, onto the street and then into the ditch.

immediately my heart stopped and i ducked into the first turn off i got to., got out and walked along the side of the road, hoping to find my phone, expecting the worst...
Found it face down in the grass and immediately picked it up and turned it over... glass was intact! the plastic frame of the case had one crack in it that i was able to put back in place inside the rubber case. the rubber had some road rash but was overall intact as well. only thing wrong was my Spen was missing as it must have been ejected by the impact.
no big deal as i ordered a new one.
Main point though, this case works!

So close. My UAG had a similar experience. Ran over by a lorry due and as good as new!

Awesome, one of the best things to happen to cell phones. Actually the deciding factor in me choosing the note 3 over nexus 5.

At this point in your tale my heart stopped and I got sick to my stomach at the thought of my newly rooted N3 bouncing down the street. This could so easily happen to me. Great to hear it worked out okay!

Would you try that again if you're so confident that the case works? Personal experience does not equal fact.

jeez dude, relax. it worked for me the one time i needed it. that's all i need. i have no idea if it iwll work again because there's no way to guarantee it will hit the pavement at the exact same angle.
it worked better than no case and i'im pretty confident in saying it works better than some of the other cases i've had in the past that I know wouldn't hold up to the same situation.

did you have a bad experience with yours or are you just trying to stir up soemthing out of nothing?
