Oh dear that's not looking too good, does it still work? looks pretty much the same as my HD2, hope I don't kill mine.

monkey glass?

Is this an attempt at trolling?

We all know it's gorillas glass and that gorilla glass isn't used in the Galaxy Nexus, anyway gorilla glass isn't shatter proof anyways so it would have probably been the same result

Sorry for your loss OP

Sorry I wasn't very clear with my wording - I meant that a drop of almost 2 metres is quite high. That's taller than I stand. The likelihood of me dropping my phone by holding it above my head is quite slim.

Noooooooooo! A moment of silence for one of our fallen brothers. Just painful to look at.

Ouch. With mine on the way from FedEx my heart just went into my throat.

I've dropped my nexus s onto a hard wood floor from about 750 cm and our bathroom tile from maybe 1.2m and I got away without a scratch. Sorry, I feel for you.

(does anyone else see the <br> tags Tapatalk is inserting in my posts? And where's my signature? Sigh...

Is square trade covering them yet? That was the first thing I was going to do before I held it more than 6 inches above a hard surface, check their Android app. I bought one for my nexus s.
