    I dropped mine for the first time yesterday. Hopefully the last time. I believe it was bar height since I was in a bar sitting at a bar with my phone on the bar as it slid down. It dropped flat on it's face, I just knew it was done. Not even a scratch. But I don't want to have another moment like that.
    Luckily idid have a very thin case which I want to think helped. This is the case I have and I think it's on sale on this site as well. I like this case because it's thin, and now I can say that it does offer some protection.

    Any phone hitting the floor risks damage. Many phones avoid damage but sometimes you need change for the pay phone.

    Give me a minute and I'll post the locations of the 9 pay phones in the US.

    this isn't a drop story per say but close enough.

    My father had a Toshiba Satellite laptop (this was in 2004-2005 around) so what happened is that he left the bag with the laptop in it behind a 4x4 (I think it was a Chevrolet Silverado), so when he drove the 4x4 in reverse he ran over his laptop. Surprisingly everything but the screen worked absolutely fine. The screen was damaged like hell but everything else... not a problem so he just plugs it in a monitor and voila he can do his work haha.

    My drop story however involves my 920, it's built like a beast. I used to work night shifts at a gas station so being all alone I use my Lumia to listen to some music (Dragonforce, Disturbed and Video Games OST if you're wondering) and place it on my pouch on my uniform, the pouch isn't big enough to fit the whole Lumia in but it can hold, so from time to time I when I'm in the back store filling up the cart I occasionally drop the Lumia from my pocket, now I'm 6'5" so the pouch was about 5 feet from the ground, which btw is a concrete floor. Just a small chip damage on the corner that's it. The best part though was when I used a ladder to get something from the top shelf, dropped my Lumia again, this time from about 10 feet. More chip damage but this time the screen has a extremely small crack on it yet you can't feel it when you put your thumb on it and heck you can only see it with direct light on it. Needless to say the Lumia 920 is extremely durable, I sold my old 920 and got a newer one for like 180$ at a local shop in Quebec City (before I moved to Gatineau)

    I dropped my 1020 five days after I bought it with no case on....it landed on the corner and dented the wooden flooring :P. That said, I have an Otterbox on it now and I have a glass screen protector shipping from Amazon (I have the tendency to be very clumsy with everything)

    Yeah...a screen protector on that 1020 might be a good idea ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have a Zagg invisible shield on my 1520 and it's priceless. I don't have one on my SP...i just think it works better without it. But a phone that's in the pocket rubbing off against keys etc. Yeah!

    Update: Dropped my 1520 last week. Lower right corner was scuffed. Unseen but holy crap did it annoying the f out of me.

    It fell down on rough concrete, probably corner then face down. (roads here are the pits).. I was expecting the freaking worst that it may have shattered to pieces and to my big surprise, not a SINGLE scratch on the screen.

    I was so relieved and bought a case the next day. I still sometimes use it naked but most of the time it's covered now. The case doesn't even bother me because of how huge the phone is.

    I don't have a Lumia 1520, but I do have a Lumia 520...

    I have dropped my phones many times. All I did was pick it up, check if the screen was okay. Never bothered with the rest of the phone lol, I didn't think there will be any damage to the phone body

    Luckily, I haven't dropped my 1520 so far. My wife, however, dropped her 1020 on the asphalt outside school about 2 weeks after she bought it. The phone is fine. All she had to do was pick asphalt off of the phone. No scratches, dents, or divots.
