I9505 for Middle East (or S4 in general), quality loss or just unlucky me?
I live in Europe and until a few months back I have only purchased models for Europe via the local carrier, but at the start of this year I was gifted an I9505, purchased from an electronics retail store (it's a model for Middle East as I was told by Samsung when trying to get it fixed), which has turned out to be by far the worst smartphone I have ever owned so far (have owned a HTC Desire and an I9100 Galaxy S2): Twice has it suffered moderate falls, and twice has it suffered very big damage as a result:
First time it dropped from hand-held height and suffered multiple cracks on the glass protecting the LCD. Got it fixed and last night it took another minor fall and it lost all LCD image (without any visible exterior damage).
I have dropped both my previous smartphones in way worse ways with no issue. My wife dropped her S3 several times with no issues, so I wonder:
-Am I just unlucky and/or I have a bad device?
-Is S4 a way more fragile phone than it's predecessors?
-Are Middle East models lower quality than Europe models?
