I have to agree. I only use a screen protector from Zagg and have never used a case for it, yet my EVO is still going strong. I've even sat down many times with it in my back pocket. It's a tough little phone if you ask me. iPhones - now that's a different story. I've cracked 2 screens in 4 years on these guys. :|

is it possible to replace the screen of an evo after it has been cracked by yourself, without taking it to either Sprint or Besty Buy, etc.?

Yeah, just look up evo 4g digitizer on Amazon, but make sure you order the precut tape. There are also a few YouTube videos explaining how to do it. It's not that hard to fix. My EVOs screen finally cracked the 30th time I dropped it.

I keep my phone in my shirt pocket at work, I work at a tire shop and it's pretty fast paced. It gets dropped basically dailey one way or the other. But its in great shape still. I have a rubber case for it, and no screen protectors. It takes some real gnarly falls too.

I used a protector for the first 6-8 months (can't honestly remember exactly how long) took it off and never looked back. It's been dropped, kicked once, sat on, etc. I don't abuse it, but a device that you have with you constantly is going to take some abuse.

I keep it in the Sena leather slipcase, and it looks and acts like new (better actually, because I'm rockin' a JellyBean rom that's sweet).

Well, the evo I have was previously my brother's. He never had any screen protectors, cases, nothing.... So is alil banged up of coarse.... But before it was mine, a little one a year ago, he had it in his pocket, tidying his Honda motorcycle home from work one day, and got cut of by a car pulling out of a driveway from an apartment complex.... Well going 45 and getting hit head on practically, he flew 90 feet police approximated, tore his clothes, trashed the sh.. out his bike, cracked the freak out his helmet, everything gone, but this phone,.... And his life. This phone is still in great condition, and I use it every day as an alarm clock. Great phone. All I have to say.

February 2nd 2011 got my Evo 4g.
All I had on it at the time was one of those POS Sprint screen protectors, was going to get an Otterbox off of Amazon.
Got plastered by a semi going 35 mph with my Evo in my hoodie pocket on the 11th, went up and over my van, smashed in the door, shot the van over a lane in the air and landed on the sidewalk. Didn't notice my Evo come out of my hoodie pocket and smack the dash hard enough to dent the plastic on the top of the phone before it landed on the floor.
Kicked the door open, stepped out, reached for my phone to call 911 and I then noticed it on the floor of my van.
Car totaled (on site officer said I shouldn't have survived that much less walk away), 2 days in the hospital with multiple fractured ribs and vertebrae, a sprained ankle and concussion, and yet virtually no damage to such an amazing little phone.
Recently upgraded but I'm keeping it, darn near indestructible, still love that thing and let my nephews and nieces use it to play Angry Birds on.
Needless to say if my Evo could survive that I with slight cosmetic damage I didn't feel the need for an Otterbox anymore.
But yeah, I still keep a stack of 15 cent screen protectors to keep the screen from getting scratched.

My Evo has fallen too many times to count. The screen is still intact.
The worst incident was when I was walking from the park to my car and decided
to whipped the Evo out to send a text. It slipped out of my hand and landed on the
pavement edge first.

The damage:
The edge that it landed on is slightly cracked.
The screen now has some dead pixels in the shape of the edge of a face.

I'm impressed and pleased with the durability of this phone.
