I've been a Samsung Supporter for Many, Many years... in fact I own, nor have used any product made from that fruit company... the last 2 models I have used (S7edge and S8) have been VERY Fragile...
I just received a Samsung 8 as a repair replacement for a device and within a week and a very short overnight fall from the bed the glass in this phone (much like the last) is now broken. I understand that glass is fragile... but heck, I’ve dropped a glass from the counter without breaking... I thought the glass on these phones were hardened Gorilla glass... so VERY Disappointed..
Thanks for listening... just wanted to share a nickel’s worth of my two cents worth.
Put a decent case on the darn thing. I've had a few Samsung phones over the years, dropped them all multiple times from various heights (NO, not on purpose). Those heights were probably 6 feet/2 meters or less, because I am.
Most were on hard surfaces. Floors, driveways, my dog's head. No broken anything on the phones. I use Otter, but there are others that probably are/may be as good.
BTW, my wife and my son have had the same experiences. My son only managed to damage a phone by losing it in the reclining mechanism of a sofa. They probably don't make a case that good.
Agreed.... I havn't had the S8 long enough to acquire a case... the other phone(s) did have a case on it, albeit not an Otter... (that thing looks like a shoe... lol).
Thanks for caring..
