    I think a lot of people are also forgetting that just having the Gorilla Glass there is protecting the actual screen which would probably cost a lot more to replace. A few years ago your phone would have been history if dropped under the same circumstances.

    I have to admit one of the things I don't like about the 930 is the back could have been a lot grippier, it isn't the easiest phone to grip safely. I like the bright green back so I didn't want a flip case (don't like them anyway) but I have come close to dropping mine twice and have a feeling I might just need to reconsider.

    For my case it was 4cm fall on a glass table. My iPhone 4 fell down from 1m and didn't crack. My brother has iPhone 5 and has a 70% glass crack from a 50cm fall. It's the gorilla glass 3. If my 930 fell down from a higher distance, you would notice a scratch on the aluminum border. Check again my photos.

    I'm not complaining about how bad is 930. I love it and happy to have it. But the replacing price of the glass is too much for its quality hardness.

    Is a screen protector really necessary with GG3? I'm not sure I understand the point of them. I thought GG3 was pretty difficult to scratch and a protector isn't likely to save it from breaking in the event of a fall.

    I have had my phone in my pocket or bag a few times with coins and keys and there are a couple of marks on the back as a result, but absolutely nothing on the front screen.

    I use a Skinomi screen protector on my 930, mainly due to the fact I don't want oily finger prints on the screen.

    The job I do a smart phone really need's additional protection so in this instance screen protector, Nokia case & insurance.

    I always use screen protectors, I have the magical capability to scratch any glass given :D
    But if you use one, I'd use a wet apply one due to the curved edges. the one in the picture is just a 2€ for 6 eBay thing while waiting for a good one, Zagg are the only ones with free shipping to europe :D and they're really good

    Mine too, cracked in the exacts same place as this from only about a foot distance from the floor. I was taking it out of its case so I could charge it on the wireless plate I have and it slipped. Got in touch with O2 and no joy. Hoping to hear back from Nokia as was quoted by a few repair shops for a new screen ranging from 150 - 190! Ridiculous!

    That's very unfortunate. I've been lucky. My 930 has taken several tumbles onto a tile floor already from about 5 feet (my own fault for trying to carry too much stuff at once) but so far the only damage are some dings on the metal frame. It's certainly sturdier than my 8X, which cracked badly after a fall from merely a foot.

    Mine was also dropped from only a few feet to the pavement as I dragged my handbag out of the footwell of my car. The frame is scuffed, a piece of glass is missing and there are two cracks running along the bottom of the phone below the 'back' button. Was hoping it wouldn't cost me much to replace but there is no way I am spending 150. Hate the bloody thing.

    My L930 is currently getting fixed, because the touch screen started to doing things by itself, nothing broken tho, but i miss it very much. Plus we have a really ****ty Nokia care center here :S It will take them about 2 weeks to fix this pff

    Have any of you tried to replace the glass? Without changing the screen itself. I heard it is some kind of problems to detach the glass from screen.

    I've done full assemblies only. The outer glass is glued to the LCD. It is possible, but not easy. Getting the glass off seems to not be the problem for most folks - it's getting the new one on that ruins most LCDs.
