What did you have to pay for service?

I'm claiming it on insurance which will cost me $125 excess fee. If not I think it's around $250 to replace the screen through a third party. Did you have a case at all when you dropped it?

I'm starting think this back cover case is the reason why we both broke our screens.

I guess until we, the consumer, are willing to pay for shock proof mobiles consisting of either titanium and Kevlar with sapphire crystal screens plus the other micro engineering internal design needed to withstand a drop, we are going to have to accept that a mobile phone will break if we drop it.
It's no joy when we do break a mobile particularly at these prices but what can we expect? The Z2 is made from glass and alloy. I can only guarantee one thing that being it will not take kindly to being dropped.
I truly don't think we needed a 'drop test' to understand that. Guess what, if you jump into a cess pit you are not going to climb out smelling of roses. I fail completely to see what a drop test achieves. I could have told you the result of that 'test' before he destroyed a perfectly good new mobile phone.

Again when we do break a phone its a real shock to the system and it generally means weeks of messing about trying to have it fixed. I am not making small of those who are suffering after they have had an accident with their mobile. I truly feel for them. What ticks me off is the concept of a drop test? Think about it.
