Hard as a diamond

Craziest thing happened....I was talking on my diamond when i dropped it and smashed it off the floor, pick it up and kept talking but the screen was dead. Tried everything couldn't get the screen back on. So after a few tears I drove the telus store to get a new phone. While talking to the sales associate I smashed the phone off the floor again and SURPRISE! working!! So next your phone dies bang it off something?

Thats sounds like a terrible, terrible idea. Absolutely horrible. Glad it worked out for you though that could've been a lot worse.

Maybe you gotta attach a tether to that Diamond
Either that or put some chalk on your hands

Not sure what it is about this phone, but I drop it so often it's ridiculous. Usually it's just onto a soft surface, but not always. It's like they made the outside out of teflon!

Dropped mine twice in a year.
Pretty tuff device although it depends on what it drops on and what part of the Diamond gets hit.
Just like a real Diamond. You can drop a stone and it can fracture or remain intact depending on how it lands and to what surface it drops onto.
The sililarities are uncanny
