    Anyone gotten cosmetic damage to their Nexus yet?

    I dropped mine for the first time today. Dropped it this morning, and my protective case came in the afternoon. Chipped a tiny piece of metal on the top left corner. I'm a very sad panda. Feels like I dropped my baby. Anyone else dropped theirs yet?

    Yep. I was carrying mine (in the sleeve) in my shirt pocket. I bent over and it slid out. I now have a ding in the silver structural foam in the upper right corner. Oh, well, the screen didn't crack and the electronics all still work, so I can't complain too much (and now I have a Seidio spring clip holster to keep anything like that from happening again).

    I think its impossible to own a phone and never ever drop it. Thankfully I have yet to drop mine.

    I've been carrying mine in pockets with keys and such and still it's pristine. No drops yet though (knocks on wood)

    I keep my phone ON me at all times. Always in inner pockets, or my actual pants pockets.

    I ordered a cheapy case off ebay from HK, and i've been ANXIOUSLY checking the mail everyday because i REALLY need some protection on the phone.....

    But no dropping it so far.

    Haven't dropped mine...yet. I have a silicone case for it which really increases the grip I have on it (very slippery and thin feeling without it), I want a screen protector but I saw that video with the guy scratching the screen with a set of keys and scissors and I kinda feel that I don't really need one now. Also, I heard a rumor that the Nexus is equipped with Gorilla Glass, can anyone confirm this?

    I dropped mine while attempting to put it in my inside coat pocket. It slide down the inside lining , landed vertically, and bounced on the hard floor of a restaurant. It was in the foamy case that comes with the phone and, didn't get scratched or nicked at all.

    I freaked out when it happened but, it didn't seem to harm the phone at all. This phone is really built solid but, I don't want to drop it again.

    I bought a clear hardplastic case, but didn't clean it well enough before I put it on. Trying to pry it off I slightly cut into the teflon coating on the bottom. Small enough to not see unless you're looking for it, but it bothers me it's no longer in "perfect" condition. lol
