That is all.

I bought my phone less than two weeks ago. So… fine for now.

I have a protective screen. That is now cracked but actual screen is fine, cheers

I cracked my phone one month ago for the first time ever and replaced it the next day

I don’t access the internet through screens

Screen is fine but I’ve smashed the wide-angle camera lens. Standard and selfie lenses are fine though, thanks for asking.

I cracked my OnePlus 3 too and have never five so before.

I’ve never broken anything on any phone I’ve had.

I cracked mine a few weeks ago for the first time ever and am soldiering on with it.

There’s a chunk missing down the bottom just below the screen now (I initially was going to try and take a screenshot of it before I realised how silly that notion was).

Mine unfortunately cracked right along the bottom bit of the screen most commonly used for swiping and the glass was definitely going to end up cutting my thumb so I got it sorted

Are you a case or screen protector person?

mine’s a bit scratched but I can’t really be arsed to get a screen protector

i have a case which has pizza slices on it

I’ve just ordered a case, I’d been meaning to since dropping my last one and this thread reminded me.

Previous to that though, I had literally never dropped or damaged a phone that I’ve owned (apart from one going in the toilet which no form of protection would have helped…)

My phone fell out of my pocket while I was cycling about six or seven years ago. It was then run over by a bus whose driver ignored my signalling to him to stop. The absolute total c*nt. The phone company says they’ve put it in a display case at their HQ as the worst damaged phone they’ve ever seen.


my current phone came with a clear case so I’m using that

for some reason this phone is like a bar of soap - I’ve dropped it more than any other phone I’ve owned, plus its constantly sliding off the sofa and stuff. I’m amazed the screen isn’t cracked yet

One time I was looking at my phone while standing urinating in a cubicle in work.

I somehow started to drop the phone, and with genuine ninja reflexes, realised I wouldn’t catch it before it landed in the toilet, so I slammed the phone against the cubicle wall as it fell. The back came off and the battery flew out, but everything was fine. I was quite pleased with myself.


I was checking the time while DJing, to see how long before the next band was due on, and it slipped out of my hand, into a pint of ale. The old rice trick doesn’t work with beer. It had to be sent away to be cleaned out.

Smashed 2 screens on previous phones. One flew out of my pocket as I hit a speed bump at about 25mph on my bike. The other was smashed in a bike crash (slid out on a wet roundabout, phone in the pocket I landed on).

Nothing wrong with this phone so far touch wood

actually amazed I haven’t smashed a phone when coming off my bike tbh

My phone screen is fine but a) this is the second screen I’ve had after I smashed the first one and b) I now have some sort of bulletproof case that would probably even survive a nuclear apocalypse. I’ve dropped it maybe 10 times since I’ve had it and that case has earned its cash back, for sure.
