Sharing my experience. My EVO has taken serious punishment from me. Dropped and the corner of the EVO and concrete met up and had a disagreement. Thank goodness for insurance.

Dropped mine for the 1st time ever recently. It was a straight 3ft face down fall to the concrete. Picked it up and all that was cracked was one of the corners but not the glass.

I wouldn't necessarily call that good.. But at least the screen wasn't shattered.

Want free FTP access for your LG development projects? Just ask!

I dropped my EVO from my bunked bed the other day. I never use its case anymore and it fell about 3-4 ft and bounced off my dresser to go down another 3 feet and land face down on the floor. The only noticeable mark is a small scrap on one of the corners, otherwise im impressed since ive dropped it 2-3 times before this and had no damage at all.

I dropped mine on concrete and it has a lot of cracks now. 3 that are very noticeably, looks so ugly! Imo the screen kinda sucks.

I've dropped mine face down a couple times with no damage...but I've seen one completely shatter from a drop that wasn't half as far.

Default Recommend a protector

The screen is actually very weak... went through three Evos(all the screens broke)... My phone is full of scratches it would be fine as long as you dont drop it
:eek :

I've dropped my EVO a couple of times (in a case) and all I have to show for it is a broken otterbox.

Since then I've given up on the case. After some keys and a few small drops there's a few small scratches in the bottom right corner (which are barely even noticeable)

On my 3rd Evo right now.

First one broke mysteriously. It was in my camelback while I was mountainbiking in a pouch all by itself. soo it out at the end of the ride and there was one large crack through the whole screen.
Second fell out of my race suit pocket while I was running through the pits, it landed on its corner and shattered massively..battery and SD card ejected...SD card toasted also. lost that data.
Have an otterbox on my 3rd one
