Hey you! You live in the US, where the Geneva Convention has been clearly defined as nothing more than a rough set of guidelines.

Spit it out!

I have an iPhone5, and was way more impressed with the XPeria Z when I had a chance to test one out. Everything about the phone is fantastic.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

I threw my iPhone 5 on the floor 2 days ago and caused structural damage.

My friend threw his iPhone 5 against a tractor and then stomped on it now it's all bent and fvcked up.

Unacceptable!

And yes it still works fine. But the screen sticks out of the frame at an odd angle...

Mine still works fine. But I can't get a new one without paying $49 at the Apple store because it's visible damaged. My plan is to demolish my current one and then get another.

What?

There is a screen protector on it to prevent the glass from shattering, not to make it waterproof. And besides, you can barely tell its there unless you look real close....

Is the Xperia Z pretty tough, or do you need to buy a case?
