    And it slips out your hand hits the concrete pavement doing several flips before sliding face down to a stop three feet away from you.

    So that long look on your face as you expect the inevitable. Screen cracked. Chipped corner. As you pick up your 1520, you see there's a 3 foot crater in the concrete, 1520 completely intact, no chipped housing, and barely any scratches on the screen. The scratches are so minor you have to use the sun to see the micro scratches.

    Now granted I did have the flip cover case but considering the impact not only did that case protect, it hardly have any nicks.

    Durability. Nokia.

    You just experienced what would make a pretty sweet commercial for Nokia durability.

    I had a similar experience with my Lumia 920.

    My 920 caused a 20 car pile up and dialed 911 to assist the injured.

    too funny.
    Though I was expecting to cringe at the story of damage. Glad to hear its managed to come out mostly unscathed haha

    I wish my 920 was that lucky. I dropped my 920 on GRASS after leaving the bus and cracked the screen. And don't get me started on my 900 cracking after dropping from 8 inches high -- pocket to retail floor. Ugh.

    Heres hoping my 1520 lasts longer when it comes in the mail.

    Lucky for you dude! I don't use my case most of the time since it doesn't feel slippery for me.

    yeah it was like seeing it all in slow motion. As flimsy as this case seems it proved its protection

    This makes no sense. Obviously I didn't have a tight grip when pulling from my pocket. Phone slips and get dropped. Cause you know people don't intentionally pull from their pocket and sling their phone to see if it survive a drop...

    He was making a joke, insinuating that he himself does not find the phone slippery so wondered how it slipped out of your hand. Knock on wood but, My skin grips fairly well to my matte black 1520 and I've yet to drop it. Although I did hhave a night terror one might and in my sleep knocked it off my table smh...
    Is your phone glossy or matte btw?

    s* happens is all I can say. Just didn't have a good grip when I pulled out my back pocket. Wouldn't be the first I ever dropped a phone. Can't ever predict these things. It is what it is. The point of this is how durable the 1520 is even with a 6 inch screen. The case was hit on three of its corner, good enough to cause a crack on any screen and both the phone and case absorbed it pretty damn well.

    This is a big phone with a big screen more vulnerable to crack. For it to come out unscathed was pretty damn remarkable. I don't use screen protectors.

    And to answer you question I have the matte black with matte black Nokia flip case.

    Had this been any other cheaper plastic Samsung phone it probably would had been more damaged.

    I think what also was impressive is the case never popped off. I thought when I first got the case it looked cheap and wouldn't hold up. It reaffirms that Nokia knows how to make things.

    1520 being bigger and thinner than 920 sounds more vulnerable to damage. Is it a tank like 920?

    That's ignorant thinking cause there's people who have dropped the 920. Even my 920 has survived some pretty good drops. The problem, though, would be would you survive if I chunked this 1520 at your head. It would probably induce a coma.

    It is because of its size it is more vulnerable. So how can the size make it strong?
    take an example of 2 glass slabs with same thickness, 1 is equivalent to the size of knife and other equivalent to the size of dagger. The 2nd slab will be easily breakable compared to first one because of the size. So same might imply for 920 and 1520. Unless 1520 is made up of thick material or better plastic.

    To be honest I don't know. I would think the same. I just knew the screen was lost. My only conclusion was the case, but it doesn't add that much more protection. I guess it just fell at the right angles. But like I say even my 920 has fallen and landed face first and didn't crack.
