Did these things suddenly become rugged?
What kinda case did he use?
Most of the OtterBox (Amazon link) stuff is pretty good. I've lost one on the airport, too... and no damage at all.
I'm a huge fan of the Otterbox cases. I use their Commuter case now, most rugged one I've seen that doesn't add much size to a phone. I've used their Defender case in the past. That thing is so bombproof they should paint 'em orange and sell them to Boeing to house their flight data and voice recorders.
Had a student leave one on the wing. Fell off at departure end. No damage, no Otterbox,
The Otter cases are amazing.
I've actually cracked three Otterbox Commuter cases.
But the phones survived just fine.
So they function as ablative armor?
I use the Commuter, too. It seems like the best compromise of good protection and lack of added bulk.
they all tended to crack at the bottom where the gaps are for the plugs.
iPhones are surprisingly resilient these days. My current iPhone spent about an hour caseless in 8’ of water and came out fine. Been dropped many times from 6+ feet too and no issues. Not so much as a nick in the screen.
No phone case around my phones. They go through lots of trouble take them thin, light and bezel-less. The last think I want to do is bulk it up, add a bunch of weight and add a big rubber or plastic bezel.
Back in my days over half the iPhones my friends had were cracked. A few looked shattered.
Cases for phones are kinda like what those "real" rubber bumpers on cars used to be.
Iphones. Some swear by them, some swear at them.
I loooooooove my Iphone. I f******ing HATE Itunes.
I've bounced my phones a few times off the ground and the latest generation of phones are stronger than they were when companies like Otterbox exploded and convinced everyone they need to put a condom on their phones.
I put the glass protector on our iphones...kids keep dropping them and no cracks to the glass yet.
iPads are probably more of risk to get damaged, especially if jammed into backpack with hard objects. Big screen just asking to get cracked if you’re careless.
