  • Joe

    I never broke my phone.

  • J Lewis

    The last phone I broke was the OG Droid. The reason this happened was because not remembering I had my phone in my hand I was throwing something with the phone in the same hand. Stupid I know. Long story short, the phone ended up hitting a wall about 10 ft away 🙁 To my surprise all that happened to the phone was it had a slight bend in the screen. No broken screen or anything but now the screen only worked sometimes and I couldn’t use it any more. That was a sad day

  • Cee Win

    Not sure how it happened, but my last phone wouldn’t let me hear the person talking unless it was on speaker phone. Kind of hard to have a private conversation while out in public.

    My Galaxy S3 magically shut down on January 1st of this year. While I don’t think any water got into it, it may have been caused by me going to the Giants/Redskins game on Dec 29th, where it heavily rained all day. Not long after, my Galaxy’s since crapped out!

So in the second day that i had my new phone with me i was at school and i was texting my friends on how great it was. I put my phone in my lap and buuuummmmmm it falls flat on the screen. Hoping nothing happened to it, i lifted up and there it was, a huge crack on the top right.

  • winhhh

    I didn’t – I had a perfect condition iPhone 4 (that was babied throughout it’s entire life, always kept in a case with a screen protector) which I sold on Gumtree last year. I spent a good hour cleaning it, restoring everything to factory defaults. The buyer came to my place to pick it up. He inspected the phone, took off the case, dropped it in front of my house on concrete from a good meter high off the ground, reinspected it, paid and left.
    Moments later, I receive a call from the buyer claiming that the phone’s home button wasn’t working and was broken before I sold it to him. I responded by telling him that it was in perfect condition with everything working fine as if it were brand new and that he dropped it which was likely the reason the home button hadn’t functioned properly. He then said he never dropped it and threatened to call the police to which I told him I’d call them for him. He then continued to threaten me to come back with some of his friends to destroy my car and smash the windows of my house if I didn’t agree to refunding him.
    He never came back – I assume he realised how incredibly stupid he really was.

  • luckily i didn’t 😉

    My One X isn’t broken just yet, but at two years old, anything can happen. I’ve dropped it face down on concrete twice, and once on the corner. (I know, I’m clumsy.) I don’t think it’ll be so lucky next time, so I’m just preparing for the inevitable here.

    I’ve never broken a smartphone. They become dumb (slow) since I get them for free through my carrier after they are a year old. Why pay full price when you can wait a year and they are free? Well, by the second year they’re almost worthlessly slow… Looking at you Nexus Phones! So I really do need a newer model. Thanks!

I just so happen to push the cart with my front leg, and the the bottom point of the square handle hit directly on the speaker grill, which cracked the back of the phone. The one day I decided to leave the phone in my front pocket, instead of the back where it’s usually keep.

  • Minh Nguyen

    I think it was about 3 or 4 months ago when my Samsung Galaxy SII (T-Mobile) broke. So what happened was I got home from school and charged my device. 4 hours later, I went to check up on my phone and the device was turned off. I wasn’t worry since it happens once a day with the ROM I was using. But when I tried turn it on, it would go on a boot loop. So I boot the device into recovery mode (TWRP) to see what was going on and it said there weren’t any OS installed. I tried to fix it by flashing the stock firmware again but it just didn’t work. My smartphone was completely hard-bricked. My computer couldn’t detect the device in recovery mode or download mode. So I sent my smartphone to Samsung to fix for $70.00 USD and got it back in 2 weeks. They told me that the internal board and display (?) unit were damaged, so they had to replace those units. And I’m still using it today with the CyanogenMod ROM (installed with CM Installer). And it still works great after three years without any problem.

    Actually it wasn’t my phone that I broke, but my wife’s — by dropping it. But it wasn’t the actual phone that broke, it was the case she had it in (to differentiate her phone from mine). So I just took some double-stick tape and stuck the back of the case back on to the phone. I won’t tell her if you won’t….

    The last and only phone I ever actually broke, was my Sony Ericsson W580i. An amazing phone at the time, but it does not handle falling down a flight of stairs well. The screen and faceplate separated from the rest of the phone. I was able to easily reconnect the two pieces (just clicked together) and the screen still worked, but with screwed up colors. A few months later and a few more drops, it finally gave out.

  • tatnai burnett

    I have not broken my phone, but my wife has; she took my original HTC EVO through the Boston Marathon the year before the bomb, when the weather was super hot. Runners got sprayed with water, and so did my phone. By mile 26.2, it was waterlogged, never to return to life despite all sorts of drying tricks.

    I busted my last phone while it was in my pocket when I flung my seatbelt off and it somehow hit smack dab in the middle of the screen shattering it and making it unusable; needless to say, since then I wear my phone in my pocket with the screen facing my leg – that was a painful lesson.

  • Andy Dip

  • Kenny

    I broke my iPhone 5s while I was taking pictures of carps in Japan the end of the year. I accidentally dropped it into the pond, and I picked it up quickly but it was all too late. I could turned on the phone but the screen was black and the home button was not working. I had kept a lot of pictures on that phone and could not recover them. I wish iPhone has a memory card slot so that it could have saved my pictures.

  • JSTARS03

    It is not broken, just old and slow EVO needs replacing

  • Nicholas Anfeldt

    I broke my last phone by letting my 6 month old son have it.

    He thought it was a great chew toy, and I didn’t think anything of it because it was Gorilla Glass and in case.

    Come to find out while he was drooling all over the phone, I plug my phone in to charge it and started to smell what seemed to be an electrical fire.

    The Drool got inside the charger port and behind the battery back and caused it to fry the phone when I plugged it in to charge.

  • TimTheK

    Does it count if my wife broke it? She knocked it off the arm of my chair out on the pool deck.

  • Lionel

    The last phone I broke was an iPhone. Whenever I finished using it I would throw it in my bag. The last time I used it I threw it across the room into my bag thinking my bag was soft enough to cushion the impact and the screen cracked. 🙁

  • Nathan O’Donoghue

    I’ve thankfully never truly broken a phone, though the last phones I’ve owned that ended up broken were broken by others that I let borrow. That is unless you count the scratches on my old Galaxy Nexus that were caused by putting it into the same pocket with a spare battery in a jacket.

  • Eunyoung Choe

  • Antnommer

    Broke my phone by dropping it, of course!

  • kilbasar

    I broke my S3 trying to slip it into the pocket of skinny jeans. That’s what I get for being a hipster.

    The last phone I broke was my Droid RAZR original. I was in my car and I had my phone on my lap and forgot it was there. When I arrived home I had forgot my phone was on my lap so when I got out of the car the phone flew off my lap and landed on the ground making a crunch sound. I was scared to look but when I picked it up the a entire screen was broke/spider webbed. Luckly I always keep insurance on my phones so I just used clear packaging tape to put over the screen to keep it from falling apart even more and put in a claim for a replacement. Luckily my new phone came 3 days later in the mail.

  • Christopher Webb

    I had a Droid RAZR and, while it was on my lap, stood up… It fell onto a concrete floor and cracked a decent amount of the screen. I continued to use it until (I believe) I sat on it in a way it disliked and the screen went out. Used insurance to replace it, then upgraded to the HTC One a few months later. I hope this phone doesn’t break, though I’m being pretty careful!

    My Bionic suffered a cracked digitizer from a short tumble onto concrete (not my fault!) but I replaced the digitizer myself with parts from Ebay. I almost always carry my phone bare-back. 🙂

  • Van

    I broke a phone once because I thought it’d be awesome to take a shot (of whiskey) out of the area where the screen was recessed in, and then slammed it down on the table.

    My last phone, a Nexus 4 that I had purchased used only a few months before, flew out of my hand and onto the concrete while I was getting it out of my pocket. The back had already shattered for reasons unknown. This experience has taught me to never, EVER use a smartphone without a case. Lesson learned, the hard way. 🙁

    My ZTE Vital fell out of my pocket and under the tire of my car. I backed up, ran over it but didn’t notice. I reached into my pocket at a stop light, realized it was empty so I turned around, went back, and didn’t see it in the driveway (and ran over it again when I parked).

    Last phone I broke was a Motorola Droid X. Severe water damage after falling in the toilet. Definitely wasn’t my favorite device, though. I went through 7 of them!

    Honestly I have never broken any of my phones. They’ve been dropped and scuffed but never broke!

  • Stephen Vanderwarker

    I broke my last phone by mistakenly dropping it out of my jacket! I was at my girl friends and thought I had placed it in the inside pocket but not paying attention, I had placed it in the sleeve. I suppose a case would have helped 🙂

    Oddly, the last phone that broke on me was my old Samsung SCH i600, a clamshell Windows Mobile 2002 running a smoking 200 MHz StrongARM 2… the 3, 6, 9, and # buttons just stopped working. I dropped it in a toilet once (mine and yes, it was a clean bowl!) and it continued to work for a over a year afterward.

  • Patrick

    The phone decided to commit suicide by jumping from my hand into the washing machine…It was a horrible and sad end to a great SG3! Hopefully a new Nexus 5 will let its google account memories live on forever. AMEN!

  • ali jawad

    I’ve (thankfully) never broken my phone. Now that I’ve said that out loud, I think I’ve jinxed myself.

  • drtunx

    Got off the pot – it slipped from my pocket – glass shattered — Moto X !

  • Dre

    I tossed my car keys onto the bed where my phone was laying. They cracked my gnex screen. The phone was an insurance replacement From an original toilet plunge (I’m convinced with cheaper glass, but that’s another discussion).

  • Jeremiah Jackson

    I punched it

  • Miles

    Jumped into a pool with it in my pocket! Go me.

  • Misha Bear Lipkin

    My last phone that I broke took a lot to get destroyed. It was a Motorola A630. First it fell in water, I managed to snap it out of the water and dismantle it to dry before it was engulfed completely. After it dried, I managed to push it up against a wood burning iron. I didn’t notice until I smelled burning plastic. It didn’t stop working until the Hinge broke in such a way that only the internal screen was working and finally it died when apple juice was spilled on it. ~End.

  • SchwannyT

    Last phone I actually broke was my Palm Treo. One fall from the seat of my car to the parking lot pavement was all it took. No more screen and I couldn’t find the stylus anywhere. I was more upset about losing the stylus than breaking the phone for some reason.

    Last phone was an HTC Incredible and it still functions!

  • gchahinian

    I legitimately have never broken a phone 🙂

  • Cody Fisher

    I like this phone and would like to have it. Why are people so nasty to one another on some of these forums, though? I don’t understand why one’s opinion about a certain device can be such an affront to someone. Why do you have to hate iPhone to enjoy an Android device, or vice versa? I think they both have their strengths. I have always been an iPhone guy, but have a Galaxy S4 now. More and more I enjoy the Google features, however, and would like to experience it more fully with a Nexus 5 or at least one of the Play edition phone.

    Last phone I broke was my wife’s (meaning my old) Droid bionic. I had it rooted and running a ROM and when I gave it to her I set it back to stock. One day a year or so later, it bricked itself. Rather than bothering with fixing it, I used that as my excuse to ditch Verizon and get 2 shiny new Nexus 4s on T-Mo.

  • bigdav1178

    Been a while since I broke a phone, but the last time was while doing some repairs on my truck. I had just bought the all new LG Voyager (yes, it was that long ago) and kept it in my pocket. Apparently I must have leaned on the screen or something, as when I pulled it out later, the screen was completely shattered. Luckily, it was less than 30 days since I bought it, and the local VZW store did a protection return on it (even though I hadn’t purchased the coverage prior to this). I have always kept my phones in a case since.

  • sourabh sekhar

    Dang i never broke my phone.

  • Chris

    My G-nex was the last phone I broke..I had it in the small pocket of my backpack and forgot to zip it up. Needless to say, I picked up my backpack off the ground, swung it on my shoulder, and my poor g-nex went flying across the room. Of course it landed face down. I picked it up ever so slowly while grimicing…and surely enough, completely shattered my screen, but still functional.

  • MustWarnOthers

    Dropped phone, while in a case (GS2) and the digitizer must have crapped out. Replaced through insurance and now the replacement has a problem where the capacitive buttons randomly go off by themselves when on 3G. Hrm.

    After having my Droid Razr Maxx with an otterbox case since day one release, it took a foot and a half fall and the display was toast. This happened on Saturday January 11th 2014. Now I am using a spare Bionic until my next upgrade is available.

  • VBM

    I got to work and had to go in my trunk. I opened the trunk and placed my phone on it (atop the license plate). I grabbed all of my gear and double checked that I got everything and closed the trunk… I heard the crash of my phone and it had a nice crack going across it, bleeding black… It’s an HTC One S and T-Mo/Asurion wanted $150 to replace it…. a One S… $150.

  • UniBroW

    Last phone I broke was my OG Evo 4G, took it out of it’s case because the htc silicone protector i was using was peeling up the Zagg screen protector I had. Slipped in some sand on a curb at work and the phone went flying (as did I) and the phone came to a abrupt smash onto the concrete. Sprint fixed it the same day, this was right before they changed their insurance and made it less desirable.

    • UniBroW

      Found a pic of it from back in the day =)

  • emoney

    I had an old LG flip phone that was indestructible, or at least I thought. I had been drinking and decided to show my friends how indestructible the phone was by throwing it across a bar. A female friend decided to test my indestructible theory. She flipped the phone open and snapped it in two. Sadly in my current state of mind I thought it was hilarious until I wrote up the next morning and realized I more had to by a new phone.

    Driveway display destroyer. Never fails.

  • I have been entering these rafflecopter contests. I hope I get to have this awesome Nexus 5 32GB now. More power to DL! 🙂

  • dl2074

    Awesome I want one!

  • @VatsalDosh2

    I broke my last galaxy s Duos when it fell down from my shoulder’s height. Pretty unnatural death! Could have been saved if I had a Cruzerlite case. I have seen all the Cruzerlite cases are strong yet good looking.

  • Jeremy Sheehan

    The one time I was using my phone w/o a case I dropped it and cracked the upper right-hand corner of my screen. Fortunately, it didn’t get in the way of anything and it was mega cheap to repair.

  • droidify

    I haven’t ever broke a smart phone. I did have an Envy that broke at the hinge

  • Arif Muhammad Faisal

    How I broke my last phone: I dropped it on the floor 🙁

  • John Allison

    Like many other people, I broke my phone when I dropped it on the ground. 🙁 The lame thing about the accident was that I had dropped my last phone hundreds of times before from many different heights and it never cracked. When it cracked, the drop was from a height just below my knee and I am not tall.

  • Adam Intinarelli

    Dropped my droid x right on the floor

  • luciomtz

    It fell between the car seat and console. As I pulled it out a part of my seat put a deep scratch on the screen. Barely cracking it.

  • Mary Vantil

    I lost my old phone

  • Errol Willoughby

    Is there a tradition of bragging about how you trashed your old phone in these comments?

    Personally, I’ve never wrecked a phone… I just made the mistake of re-signing with AT&T for a Note 2, which happens to be my first smartphone. If there is one thing I regret in my whole life, that is it.

    I was at work, and when I went to pull it (GNex) out of my pocket, it landed face first on the ground; it cracked the entire front face. It still works, unfortunately, but this was my last (and only phone) I’ve ever broken.

  • Errol Willoughby

    I’ve been wanting one of these so bad… If I win, John Legere can have my Note 2 and pay my ETF.

    My second S3 broke while trying to use it as a 3rd camera on a documentary. Took 20mins to set it up and 2 seconds for it to drop onto the ONLY rock in a 50 yard field. Client laughing, screen done, me pantomiming a scream. Did I mention the first one broke while jogging and the replacement was only 3 weeks old?

  • HeLLkAt31

    This past September I sold my Nexus 4 to my friend to pay my bills. He’s been out of the grid on smartphones since the HTC HD2. I never broke my Nexus but my heart was broken that day. Another friend wanted to sell her iPhone 4 for 50 bucks. I was going to buy an iPod touch so naturally it was a better buy. But now I use it as my phone since it came in handy since I sold my Nexus. I installed iOS 7 and still I am a broken man. I stare at the iPhone’s icon grid and reminds me of Nexus app drawer. Always wanting to hit a back button to go home. But there is no home. So once again I remain broken without a home to go to with a device that’s broken as I remain… =(

  • 994196003

    Tried to solder on a new sleep button because it wore out, didnt go as planned…

  • I broke my last phone by jumping to try and reach a can of yams my wife requested my help in retrieving. As I jumped, it slipped from my shirt pocket and for a millisecond, seemed frozen in midair. As I spouted a few choice lines of profanity, I could only watch as it landed with a thud-crack. Alas, my LCD/Digitizer was no more.

    RIP Galaxy Nexus.

    I would love a Nexus 5! been following DL since The OG Droid

  • Saywhat4118

    My boss got mad at me for using a nexus 5 at work (work for AT&T, he has a strict ‘only phones we sell’ rule) so he ‘accidentally’ bumped into me causing my phone to drop and shatter. So it would be awesome to get another nexus 5.

  • kinsie21

    My niece threw it on the floor when I didn’t give her any candy.

  • Phillip Lewis

    The last phone I broke was some time ago, which was my LG Incite (CT810). I got a bit frustrated with the touch screen not responding to the stylus and slammed it down against the counter (which I had done before with no issue lol). This time though, the display shattered. Luckily for me I was able to flash it back to Windows Mobile 6 (factory) from Windows Mobile 6.5 by Dark Wolf and got it replaced, lol. Since then I have had the SGS I Captivate which mostly ran CM and currently the SGS II Skyrocket running whatever the latest and greatest coming out of the AOSP community that I am able to compile and tweak to my liking. So I can’t say as I have ever broke an Android device, whether it be my own or a friend’s (HTC, Motorola, Google, etc…). Wish I could have gotten the SGS IV but my provider is playing hard ball and ignoring the fact I’m a premier customer, but it will work out because my next phone will be either the SGS V, SGF, or the Nexus 5 as those are what I’m looking at currently.

    My screen randomly stopped working on my evo 3d

  • Buckoman

    Well, since my GS4 had died twice already and I’d love my contract to be paid out to switch to T-Mo, I figure I should share my story of how I actually broke my phone. This happened in September 2010, and the memories still haunt me to this day.

    I had a Droid X without a case. I’m upstairs at Barnes and Noble, when I hear and feel the ring and vibrate of an important caller. But, of course, it turns out that my phone had twisted itself backward inside my cargo shorts.

    Three rings out of my maximum six. Not good. Time to engage faster-than-blue hedgehog mode.

    Not to disappoint one of my loving fans, I quickly scrambled to get the phone out of my pocket. Pulling it up and out, when combined with the sweat and potential guilt of not being there to answer the President of the United States of America himself, (for all I know, that’s who it could have been), my phone had slid the entirety of its two sides between my nervously sweaty fingers and into the air.

    I had hit ring five.

    I played a one-phone-juggle for the entire upstairs of the store when it flew straight out and on to the down escalator.

    Ring six had come and gone. The supermodel who had desperately tried to reach me would be thoroughly disappointed not to hear my silky voice on the other end, and I don’t think I was getting any tips for my risky performance on the second floor. All while my phone had tumbled down the escalator and hit the bottom. Crickets were chirping, the people at the nook stand were glaring, and I hopped on the moving stairs of shame to survey the gruesome damage I had caused to Andy 2.2 (who still haunts me to the day, I swear). I reached the bottom, picked up my phone, whose battery cover had fallen off and lodged itself into the bottom of the escalator. The battery was 6 feet away, so I decided to brace myself for what would happen if the phone powered on at all.

    I pushed the nonexistent power button in with my nail and hoped for the best. People were still watching, almost as if they were eager to see what my reaction would be when my $200 phone became worthless.

    Alas, the entirety of the right side of the screen was dead, the left side was spiraled in two places, but it worked.

    As it booted up, i swiped my lockscreen and dragged down the notification bar to see the newly left voicemail.

    I type half my password in blindly, press the virtual # button and wait. In a crackly voice I hear “You have one new message. First message.”

    It was my grandmother wondering if I could stop by her storage unit on Saturday to help her move some belongings.

    I now use a full InvisibleShield and Poetic case on each phone I purchase at all times just thinking that maybe, just maybe, if I get a call from my #1 Fan – The President’s Supermodel – I’ll be prepared.

  • MikeM

    Was using my htc Dinc as a flashlight while trying to repair the washer motor. Got it a little too close to the inverter board and it drew a big fat spark off of one of the capacitors. Both the Dinc and the washer motor shot craps, and to add insult to injury my lovely bride made me sleep on the pullout sofa for the next two weeks!

    Dropped it off a cliff, hiking.. Lol

    It eventually got slower and slower… Regardless of how many times I factory reset it and flashed a new ROM, it’d start out fast again and eventually get bogged down. 🙁

  • Hoffman

    The last phone I broke fell out of my pocket in a parking lot and I accidentally drove over it.Certainly can use a Nexus 5 32gb.

  • My brother actually broke my BB Storm by putting it in the sink and washing his hands over it. He knew I loathed the phone, so he destroyed it thinking I would be happy. I laughed.

  • Mr ilheis

    The last phone I actually broke was a LG NV 2. Somehow I shattered the screen while it was in my pocket.

  • Andy

    Toilet..Isnt that how it always goes.

  • Mike Aurin

    I didn’t break it. My angry ex-girlfriend broke it by smashing it to pieces on the floor. To be fair she grabbed it and thought it was hers. We both had G-Nexi. Never stick your dick in crazy.

  • mercado79

    Somehow smashed my Nexus 4 between the shifter and the lower dash. Not pretty…

  • Spotiddog

    Crushed under 200 lbs of forse

  • Steven

    My last phone wasn’t technically broken, just stolen after I had been beaten up and mugged. Not a big deal though considering it was cheap. I haven’t owned a smartphone before so it’d be awesome to win one. Not trying to gain a sympathy vote or anything and I doubt those even come into play when winning. Just wanted to share an honest story. Good luck everybody.

    I used my Droid X as an alarm clock and left it on a docking station with the screen on for months until one day everything went haywire and some unbelievable things happened to the display. Then the whole thing went dark. RIP

  • drparty

    Let the wife use my Galaxy Nexus for a week. She broke the screen twice. I had it for a year, not a single scratch. Two different screens in a week’s time. So basically I don’t let her have a phone unless its in bubble wrap anymore.

  • LinuxKnight

    I don’t think I have actually broken any phones… they are collecting dust in a drawer, or passed on to family who don’t mind an older but still usable phone. I still use one as a PMP (aka Android version of iPod Touch), speaking of my Droid Inc, which rocks 4.4 KitKat now with a custom ROM ;).

  • Jon

    I honestly have never broken a phone. Only ever scratched them. However, the rest of my family has broken their phones and had to get them replaced. Really regretting paying Verizon the extra $ for the protection plan.

  • Sterling

  • willjah

    I need a new phone badly. Still using the Droid X.

  • MGalligan17

    I scratched my screen and want a Nexus 5 SO BAD!

  • jamesp352

    I’ve never really broken a phone recently. I vaguely remember a flip phone I had with a battery that kept falling off because of a bad fall . . . I dropped my OG Droid once screen-first onto a parking lot, but only got a couple dings around the bezel . . . my GNex is pretty much flawless (knock on wood . . . maybe on a teak Moto X if I don’t win this N5!)

    Phone I came closest to breaking was my old LG Chocolate. All the times it fell, it would look like a super bouncy ball… still never broke though.

  • Brian_2112

    I had a Galaxy S II on Virgin Mobile (Epic 4G Touch), it was charging on my table and it fell off and landed bottom first, slamming the USB plug into the phone and bending the contacts inside. The phone still works, but no way to charge it without fixing it…moved on to an Atrix HD, and I’m satisfied. Now if a Nexus 5 comes along, I’ll make room for extra satisfaction… :p

  • alphanu22

  • jjl207

    This would be awesome. Love the Nexus 5.

  • BigFriend

    I didn’t break it, per se. One day the left-half of the screen just stopped handling touch input.
    I actually bought a full LCD and digitizer replacement to try and fix it myself.
    Hours later and two spudgers down, I was finally done.

    Ended up with the right half of the screen not handling touch input.
    C’est la vie.

  • jonzey231

    I broke my last phone which was a galaxy nexus by running over it after changing my oil. I had a jetta and you have to drain the oil a special way and I was using a diagram to do it. Forgot it under the car and ran over it afterwards when I was leaving to take the old oil to auto zone for recycling. I was soooooooo pissed. Luckily I had an old droid x and used that until I switched to T-Mobile and bought my N4 last year. Would love the N5 to use instead.

    I broke my HTC Rezound by setting it on the back of the toilet, playing Slacker Radio, while I was painting the bathroom. The Rezound had a really nice built in speaker, apparently nice enough that the bass in the songs vibrated the phone until it slid off the toilet and hit the tile floor. The screen did not survive.
