Default Moto G LTE durability pushed off a 5 story roller coaster

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.

I'm strongly advocating the use of tempered glass screen protectors. It's a great insurance plan. Only about $6 on ebay.

If I know I'm gonna ride the coaster with the phone I would put on a case. Good thing you have screen protector, soon sapphire tempered glass will be more popular and affordable.
