Drop warning for Z10

We have had 2 people now drop their Z10s from a relatively short height onto a parking lot.  Both while taking them out of their back pocket.  Both drops of about 3.5 to 4 feet resulted in cracked  glass on the screen.  Once the glass is shattered the phone will no longer work even though it powers up.  Swipes are no longer possible due to the broken screen.  Apparently in drop tests the Z10 has not been doing well.  Glad I got mine in an Otter case.

Re: Drop warning for Z10

Just to mention, most all of these phones with the high sensitive screen will break very easily. The glass is very thin on these in order to have them be very sensitive. There is a famous major manufacture of phones that is even more sensitive than the Blackberry phone for being dropped.
