    Yep. Fell less than two feet, but it must have hit that sweet spot. Even had the best case they money can buy for it.

    Oh wait...that's a TWENTY DOLLAR PIECE OF SILICONE. Someone, please release a nice case in a timely fashion, my phone's life depends on it. (Still taking responsibility, it slid out of my pocket. Stupid loose sweatpants with a small pocket. But a case probably would've stopped it.)

    Had insurance through Asurion thank God.
    Oh wait, it's backordered, and I won't have it for a week. Shouldn't I get some discount, they overnight everything else?

    FML.

    Wow, sorry to hear about that. Agree, like someone else on another thread pointed out, the lack of accessories for the 928 doesn't make it seem like much of a hero device. I'm still waiting on a good case and armband to go with it.

    Thanks im kinda down. Cracked phone for a week. Have to hide it, too, or I'll never hear the end of this. Lack of cases is severely depressing, and can and will affect sales.

    My advice to everyone...treat it like an egg that has an uncracked value of $499.

    No. No phone is indestructible. Not scratch proof, not shatter proof. I've learned over the years that you have to treat your phone like the several hundred dollar piece of electronics that it is.

    Sorry to hear it..... My advice to everyone is to contact the case provider of their choice and let them know that we want cases for this phone. I've contacted several, with mostly positive (we're working on it, or we plan to) replies.

    I haven't used a case or screen protector in many years. Never had scratches or drops. I guess I just really pay attention when handling my phone. Stays in my front pocket by itself. I love the feel and size of the phone naked.

    it's real shame, I had mine drop on cement ground three times, ended up with a slight dent on the corner and a scratch on the display...

    I don't have anything at all on mine right now, either. Here's hoping for decent cases soon!

    Why are these screens scratching? They are Gorilla Glass 2 and are supposed to be several times stronger than the original Gorilla Glass. I have had a Droid X for 3 years, no case, no screen protector. I have dropped this phone about 6 times from 3 to 6 feet on concrete and tile flooring. Not even 1 scratch on the screen which is made of the original Gorilla Glass. I don't like the added bulk of a case and I don't think a screen protector should be necessary. I was going to get the 928 this week, but this is scaring me off.

    Anytime you have the glass covering the entire front of the phone it's going to be easier to break when dropped, because it has less casing to absorb the shock. As for GG2, it is stronger, thus allowing manufacturers to use thinner sheets of glass. It's more scratch resistant than the first gen, but it's still glass, so it can shatter, especially if it gets hit on a corner.

    I baby my phones personally, I only just got my first scratch on my 2 year old Trophy a couple weeks ago. I don't actually know how it happened. Here's hoping I have just as good of luck with this phone. I do wonder about the oleophobic coating though, I suspect it will be prone to scratching even if the glass itself isn't.

    This has been discussed before. I know I saw a thread about it... Most likely the scratches are on a layer of the glass and the glass itself is ok. I have also read that while GG or GG is incredibly strong alng its flat surface, it is still prone to shattering if impacted from the side. That being said, there's a YouTube video of a 920 taking a fastball at 90+mph and surviving just fine. Then there's also a 920 getting demolised by a hammer falling on it from about 3 feet.

    I've dropped my 928 a couple of times from desk height and no scratches or beakage. I think it's one of those "when it's time, it's time." type of things. Until then, use it like the tool it was intended to be. Not the center of your universe.

    Amazon.com: lumia 928 case: Cell Phones & Accessories
    Also Google Shopping and search for lumia 928 case gives few good results.

    So not as bad as it sounds IMO.

    If you are in the Seattle Area, I would suggest to check out igsmwireless.com

    I used to work with the owner in his past career (still my career), he does excellent work. I am unsure how available the parts are to fix it with it being so new.

    Hary: they're all silicone, which doesn't help for a drop.

    I'm in Pittsburgh. :/

    I bought the Nokia cp-531 armband from amazon.co.uk for my Lumia 920 a few months ago. The site says it is currently not available now, but if you can find it online (not sold in US, but Amazon UK will ship here...others might as well), it is a great armband for the larger Lumias. Cases will be more of a problem since the 920 is not the same "shape" as the 928. It took a good 3-4 months before there were decent cases available for the 920, and even now it is hard to find them in brick and mortar stores :(
