Oh yeah, I have to agree. I actually dropped my S2 Skyrocket face first on the floor yesterday. Not a since scratch or crack. Had I dropped it in the holy area where I have dropped all my iPhones ( in my sunroom, on the nicer tile), it would have probably cracked.

Keeping the KF in a case, even a really cheap one, is a good idea.

Wow. I would have thought it would take a lot of pressure on a single point, rather than just a drop. So much for gorilla glass. And one more reason for me to stick with eInk

Gorilla Glass 3 is supposed to out this year. Will that maybe work?

Yeah, but I gave my Fire to my gorilla to play with and the stupid ape broke it immediately.

Is that covered by the warranty?

A very old post I don't even remember what I thought at the time..... Gorilla Glass isn't hard to break. I've seen many broken ones since that post.
