>>46894872 Ive dropped my Nexus 5 a couple times and thanks to the case there is zero damage. Without the case the phone would have gotten scratched or dented. Also the rubberized phone body would start to wear shiny if I had no case

Holy shit dude, have some respect for your stuff.
I bet you're the kind of jackshit retard that just throws shit away when it gets broken and buys new shit that same day.
I cannot believe some people with a sane mind are arguing cases are bad.
The reason why I use a case (flip cover, actually) , a screen protector, or any 3rd party addon on my phone is because if it drops, it's more or less protected, and the sale value (which, in all honesty, is the most important bit since phones get changed around every 2-3 years, perhaps even sooner) is intact, so that I can claim it's a mint, 10/10 well taken care of phone.
Plus I can't bother with really thin phones (below 9mm), big hands to type on and hold properly, so a case solves this problem for me too.
I've been using the Neo Hybrid for my Nexus 5 for 1 year now. I feel like Spigen cases are the only good looking option for an N5. This case protects the phone well from scratches, minor drops and moisture.
The more components a solid system has, the better the force dispersion, meaning that usually a case will lower the impact force on screen / internal components. These Apple shills would agree with me if they invested the time they spent rimming Steve Jobs' dead, cold asshole in some proper education. Of course when your phone lands on it's screen nothing can really save it.
>>4689457 >>brand Moto G Grip Shell >>functionality Perfect, it's not really a case, so it doesn't feel like shit. >>durability Okay for those short falls, nothing more. >>longevity I've had this shell since I've had this phone, so uhhhh, 9 months now. >>style White plastic shell, black rubber sides.
I have this in gray/orange with a tempered glass screen cover. I've had to replace the screen cover once after taking a nice spill off a longboard but the case itself has done well with multiple drops.
I have yet to really test the S5's water resistance and I really have no intention of doing so.
>>46895219 Be careful when applying the outer frame (plastic part) to the rubber shell - sometimes the rubber edges get stuck under the plastic corners and you need to take it apart and do it again. Other than that this is a top quality product. The buttons are as responsive as the ones under the case.
You're the one who made the original claim that "the only way not to shatter your screen is not to drop it." The burden of proof is on YOU. So I would say it is you who doesn't know that a phone is fucked if it's dropped with a case. I've owned an otterbox on two phones now and dropped it on its screen several times in that process without so much as a scratch on the phone. You are using anecdotal evidence to suggest that cases are a waste of money, and your statement is disproven as long as one person dropped their phone on their screen one time and it didn't crack, which happened to me several times over. You also admitted you never used a case so how the fuck would you know that the case wouldn't have prevented anything?
>>46895332 The button covers are part of the soft inner shell but they're responsive and I've never had trouble with accidental presses.
>>46895402 Yeah they're solid as fuck. It was a weird fall that broke mine in my pocket, but every day drops don't do a damn thing. I have lost the home button raiser they included but there isn't that much of a difference.
>>46895563 >broke mine in my pocket Was it at work?
I bent a key over once while in my pocket, but some of the work I do is pretty rugged, so I'm guessing I leaned over something, or balanced something heavy I was carrying on my thigh and it hit the key on the corner and bent it.
I am always super weary of putting anything else in the pocket with my phone because of this.
At any rate, I always thought tempered glass covers were a rip off, but I'm pretty sure my next phone will have one. Which means I'll have no need for the Defender, which means I'm still in need of a new case lol
Incipio is cheap, if it works for you maybe I'll give it a try.
>>46895890 No I hit a rock while skateboarding and landed on my phone. I do manual labor as well but we're not allowed to bring electronics in the building because of "signal interference" (total bullshit because supervisors and full time employees are always on their phones). But yeah I love the case, it's sturdy without adding to much bulk. I would definitely recommend buying it online though, I bought mine in the Verizon store when I upgraded and paid ~$30 for it.
At any rate, one thing I plan on doing is adding a phonejoy so I can emulate on my phone.
A case that protects but also isn't bulky is pretty key for this because one of the accessories that comes with it slips between the phonejoy and the phone, allowing you to plug your headphones in from the bottom. But huge bulky cases will definitely interfere with this. I'm kind of afraid that any case will interfere with it, but incipio might be slim enough that it wont.
Literally got it in a Day before our last field Exercise.
It's working pretty well. So far it has done the following: >Gerber slipping from hand smacking directly to to front of scree center. case/screen protector is fine and so is the phone >Outside setting up an Antenna to troubleshoot some equipment, Phone slips out of my parka and falls to the ground about 6ft down into a pile of mud. After a few baby wipes and opening the case to clean more, phone still works fine and the case has just only a small scratch. >I literally throw my phone around inside the vehicle whenever I need to move since it's cramped as shit inside an HMMWV
>>46896268 I wasn't sure if Lifeproof was going to make a S5 case when they first came out, given life proofs main gimmick is waterproof quality and the s5 comes with that stock.
still i have a hard time justifying 80 dollars for a case. With insurance, the deductible on replacements is like 200 dollars, which is great for a 700 dollar phone, but if the 80 dollars on a case like LifeProof can prevent you from even getting that point, then I guess it's worth it.
>>46896513 I feel like it helps just to have deep jean pockets that the phone won't fall out of. I'm really careful when I take it out of my pants, and when putting it back it. The note has leather on the back, so just get a good grip on it and you shouldn't drop it.
It really makes me wonder how clumsy you guys are, or people in general I guess. I see girls with <1 year old flagships, all scratched, ugly and broken. Or people that put a 2cm thick tank case on a sleek and beautifully engineered phone.
I've literally got 2 barely noticable nicks on my current phone from trying to bike/text at a 4 way intersection, and a flawless retired Galaxy S2.
>>46896513 well considering I'm in the military and we do a lot of dumb shit because "muh army". Our equipment gets put through the ringer, and being a commo dude we need our cellphones in the event a major commo issue occurs.
I don't get it. People want to buy phones as thin as humanly possible, sacrificing battery life just to get that extra 0,1mm of thinness and then proceed to put the phone in an ugly thick case. It's just a phone, if you're a retard and break it, you'll buy another one.
>But it'll be ugly after a while id I don't keep it in a case well, it's ugly from the beginning if you do.
Also, for all those years having different mobile phones, I've never managed to break one, or get the screen scratched. The only one of my phones with ANY sign of not being new (other than fingerprints) was a HTC Desire, the metal battery cover was coated with a thin layer of something and it peeled off.
>>46896673 I've got a pretty high amount of dexterity in general, I'm good at gaming and sports and used to parqor for fun (nothing crazy, mind you, but I was kind of a monkey).
I just have a neurological disorder that disrupts signals sent for fine motor control, meaning my hands shake constantly, and it actually gets worse when I try and perform very precise actions. The only way to over come it is by extreme repetition, which is how I get good at gaming.
There's only about a 1 in 100 chance I will drop my phone, but without the case, that one time I do drop it, the screen could get cracked and then it looks like shit. So I'd rather have a case on it.
I do understand where you are coming from, sleekly designed, good looking phones, shouldn't be covered, sadly, i don't have much of a choice.
>>46896673 my sister breaks between 2 and 4 iphones per year. And at least 1 laptop (sometimes 2) And I mean "really" breaks. Is she replaced them whenever the screen showed first cracks, she'd probably get a new one every 2 weeks. Good thing that her husband is a lawyer, they have money to waste on her electronics.
>God damn the product demo video they have on their front page is impressive.
Not really. Ever seen a professional wrestling match? Ever seen one of the competitors pick up the other one and then body slam him/her into the ring floor? Know why they don't actually get hurt?
'cause the "floor" is made of plywood and it has a fucking shitload of foam cushions underneath it. When the body hits that floor it simply transfers all the force directly into the flexible plywood panels and foam cushions thereby taking basically no damage at all.
Watch that video again and realize the surface the phone is sitting on isn't a solid hard surface: it's plywood covered with a piece of cloth and when the balls land on it it's just transferring the kinetic energy directly into the plywood panel under it, simple.
Especially the bowling ball, so think about it: if you had that iPhone sitting on a concrete or seriously hard solid surface, and you dropped a fucking BOWLING BALL on it, do you really believe the phone wouldn't be crushed when it makes contact?
If you think the phone would come away unscathed and undamaged, you really don't know shit about physics at all.
>see video >laugh at the practically carnival vendor level of scamming bullshit going on >it's a screen protector that prevents scratching of the display glass >it's not a piece of transparent Vibranium that can absorb 250 lbs of fucking impact force leaving the device undamaged >get the fuck outta here with the marketing bullshit
>I just have a neurological disorder that disrupts signals sent for fine motor control, meaning my hands shake constantly >I just have a neurological disorder that disrupts signals sent for fine motor control >I just have a neurological disorder >calling Dr. Allcome
The knife thing is pointless because Gorilla Glass - even the 1st generation of it - is hard enough that no metal of any sharpness known to mankind will damage it with a simple slicing maneuver over the surface of the glass so that's a moot point, period.
Screen protectors do absolutely nothing but provide scratch and surface damage to the display glass - they do not, can not, and never will provide any type of structural integrity boost to make the display glass tougher than normal to impact damage of any kind.
But they do help with fingerprints, especially matte ones which are the only ones I'll use. The best ones I've ever found are made by Moshi but they don't make them for every device, only specific ones, sadly. Luckily I've owned devices they happen to have screen protectors for over the years, unfortunately they didn't make one for my G3 so I may have to look into one of those Bodyguardz at some point since they have that awesome matte finish.
I'm a firm believer in using a case on a smartphone, and a screen protector (since Gorilla Glass doesn't come in a matte version - how the fuck I wish it did, my god that would fucking RULE). I've never dropped any smartphone I've owned over the past decade or so, I have dropped a dumbphone (simple Nokia 1100, awesome device) once or twice however.
I currently use a Ghostek case on my G3 - it's just a ripoff design from the Spigen Slim Armor for the G2 (the G3 Slim Armor is a different design that's more rounded). The kickstand on this case works great, it's a two piece unit and it fits my G3 just as well as the Slim Armor fit my G2 when I had that phone last year.
My hand writing changes with slight variance every single time I write something and I have no recognizable signature to speak of. (It's literally just a series of squiggles that start with what appears to be vague shapes of the first letters of my first and last name).
When I was in the 2nd and 3rd grade and we were learning cursive, I fucking hated it with a seething, burning passion and the second it wasn't required any more (some time in 5th grade I think) I stopped writing cursive.
I hate hand writing things, it makes my hand hurt terribly after even a page of writing and I get hand cramps.
I can type hella fast though. 85 wpm on a bad/lazy day. Which is how I took notes in Uni.
>>46897675 My brother usually buys shit tier 50 dollar "smart" phones from prepaid cellular companies. He does this because he finds abusing the shit out of them to be deeply amusing
>him and his friend riding down the street in our neighborhood one time >friend asks "hey man can I use your phone." >Bro says "Sure man" >Lifts phone >goes to hand it to friend >instead tosses it out the window right in front of his friend. >Just be sure to give it back when you're finished, man
>>46897728 I want to do this on college too but I don't find the time, I also type some average 115wpms or 130/140 if I'm inspired but I just don't find normal to create several files of classes and stuff and then study from there, i've always been a non organized fag and I would end up never reading them
Fun is one thing, just destroying shit for no legitimate reason other than to call it fun, well, if you can't comprehend how fucking stupid that is, go back to trashing mailboxes with a baseball bat as you hang outside the car window, son.
