Default Smartphone vs Pavement

Having a large 4.0" display on my brand new Motorola Atrix is great! Until you smash that display within the first 12 hours of getting a new phone
I really should have put the phone in a case with a screen protector. So I can't belame the broken screen on the build of the phone.

I hate to admit it, but I can't help but laugh at this. You managed to shatter a phone within TWELVE hours of owning it... that has to be some sort of record!

For what it's worth, the non-shattered parts of the display look good!

12 Hours is my record that is for sure. Hopefully it stands for a long time, however I highly doubt that it will.

I'm not into the broken glass look, but taste differs...

Mod on I would say!

This happened as the result of a drop?

Now if you pitched it against a brick wall, repeatedly
I'd expect to see that. but from a drop?

Wow... no smart phones in my future.

nah, I've heard rage stories from friends about getting a phone, walking out of the store with it, pulling it out of the packaging and dropping and breaking it within 30 minutes. lol

That's insane! Patience is needed to wait until you get home...
