That sucks. They don't seem to have the strength you would expect. Lots of then have done banana impressions: the glass often remains intact but the touch sensor snaps and they end up curved somewhere in the middle.

This one is almost dead center cracked and touch is gone so its pretty much dead which puts me out a phone for looks to be 3 weeks.

you must be one fat ass (seriously)

I've put my ultra in back ass pockets dozen of times, sitting on hardwood chairs, sofas to carpet and the worst thing that may have happened it that I've bent the frame. but i twist it back to normal


same goes for other pockets.

I stood on mine, spider webbed the whole screen. Thankfully my phone company offered insurance it cost $50 excess to repair. They are pretty easy to crack though. It's the only worry I have and the reason I pay $8/month to insure it. First phone I bothered to do that with. Still have a spider webbed semi-functioning HTC One X that will never get repaired due to cost.

I won't like the OP as that seems wrong - we need a sympathy button..
