So I went to Universal Studios yesterday and went on the Rp Ride Rockit roller coaster. When I was at the top of the highest part of the coaster during the loop, my Moto G LTE was flung out of my pocket and bounced a couple times on the metal poles. The really amazing thing was that the phone only had a standard clear TPU case and tempered glass protector on it. The case somehow fell off of the phone along with the backside but the screen is totally unharmed without a scratch. The LCD though has some damage to it. My mind was BLOWN A W A Y that this phone took a 5 STORY DROP at HIGH SPEEDS into METAL POLES and still survived, still FULLY FUNCTIONAL!!!!
This is the aftermath of the fall. http://imgur.com/a/epM71
I'm strongly advocating the use of tempered glass screen protectors. It's a great insurance plan. Only about $6 on ebay.
