I was having issues with Wi-Fi, so I upgraded. Didn't help the issue though... but now LTE is available here, so I don't even use wifi as much (4gb of internet a month)

I don't get why people use a case or screen protector on this phone, it doesn't need it

Stand on concrete (sidewalk, garage, etc) or hard tile (kitchen).
Pull phone out of you pocket and simulate a misshandling. Let it drop on floor.
Report back.

I disagree, but everybody has an opinion. The experience of the phone lies within the interface, not the aesthetics.

P.S. Consider yourself lucky regarding the "little nick". I know a few people whose iPhone's looked a mess after only two weeks of use (..edges shiny, small dings, etc.). Mine is perfect under the RocketFish case. It's just a phone. It isn't strong as balls.

Well I dropped my phone a couple feet onto concrete (landed on a corner, bounced around). Not a knick on the screen or the back side, the edges just chipped a tiny bit and I filled it in with sharpie.


If you're dropping your phone all the time I think you have other problems, like with life.

So they cover it with a big fat shitty plastic case for the entire lifetime of having the phone, smart. Doesn't iPhone 6 come out this year too?

Do it again, simulate a fall flat on it's face/screen.

All I'm using right now is a glass screen protector. It will protect it from that sort of drop. I'm happy with it



PS: Not my picture and as I said, I'm not using a case. This is what the protector looks like though.

A screen protector protects against scratches, not fall impacts.
I've had 3 phones (not all iPhones) break screens in my family. One of them was inside a backpack which was hit by a soccer ball.

Herp derp. It's glass not plastic. In this case it does help to reduce instances of face down cracks on the phones screen.

The soccer ball story is unlikely. There is something left out of that story.

That video is retarded.
Everybody knows that glass is hard. You can't scratch glass with metal.
And little controlled bangs with a hammer isn't proof.
I thought you posted a video of a guy dropping the phone (waist heigh, not 2 inches) on concrete floor.
