    I'm usually pretty careful - never broke any home electronics, laptop, phone, game console, etc. until I got the Lumia 1520. While bent over vacuuming, a backed into my door and the doorknob got caught between my phone and pocket. As I stood up, there was a weak cracking noise - it was the screen.
    I get a replacement 1520 and I fumbled with it - it didn't even fall 2 feet before landing on the composite foot board of my desk and again there is a giant web of cracked glass. Is the gorilla glass thinner than other models or is it the added dimensions to it that made it more delicate or is it a combo of that and dumb luck

    Phone breaking isn't really an exact science, I think you've just had the bad luck of having the phone be in a situation where all the force was on the display.
    My 920 has shrugged off larger falls, only for a corner of the glass to fall victim to a two-feet drop, so its really situational, based on phone's design, how its falls, etc.

    I've had mine for about two months, dropped it twice and survived. BTW I use a Nillkin case.
