Hello M:R Nation –
The iPhone 5 is the phone I personally use, which translates to “The iPhone 5 is the phone I drop on a daily basis”. With that being said, I have to tell you that I just finished up dropping my iPhone 5 for the 100th time and to my surprise, the screen still did not crack. This was a pretty gnarly corner drop too. I was certain it was finally time for me to use our iPhone 5 Glass Repair Service. I am not doing this on purpose. I am not testing a new protective case to put on MissionRepair.com. I am really dropping this thing on accident and it usually happens when I go to put it back into my pants pocket.
As a person with MANY drops to my name. I have come up with some muscle memory reactions when my iPhone slips out of my hands.
- Foot Cushion – This seems to be my go to reaction when I drop my iPhone. I simply stick my foot out to cushion the fall. This equates to about a 2″ fall after all is said and done.
- Quick Grab – More often than not, I am able to catch it mid-fall. This is not a great tip, but hey….
- Jump And Dive – This is just not safe, but I find myself at times diving for my dropped phone. Yes, I have actually found myself on the floor more than once trying to prevent a crack.
- Walk On Carpet – When interacting with my iPhone, I will often make a point to do so on carpet. I know this is ridiculous, but I have yet to crack my glass so I’m adding it to the list.
- Cover My Eyes – I do this most of the time. Now that I think about it, I’m just a lucky gent that just happens to not drop it the right way. I think my days are numbered.
But until that day comes, I will continue with my beloved foot cushion and closed eye method which has worked for me through today.
