I've had the iPhone since gen 3 and most recently, the 5, 5s and now 6
I find that it's pretty durable.
Though I did have a problem with the screen flashing really weird at odd times and after changing the screen out and the problem still persisting; they swapped it out for a new one.
Which is nice because prior, my friend knocked this phone out of my hand and even with the thin case it was unscathed except a tiny scratch on bottom of the phone, on one of the corners. But it literally dropped onto the floor.
Yes, my first was the 4s in 2012. Still have it, has always been in an Otter Defender case. Dropped once from 15 feet onto the pavement.
Thought it was done. Still working fine. I keep it as my second line.
Recently upgraded to the 6plus. Love it. Especially the camera. And yes, it's in one of those big bulky ugly Otter Defender cases.
Tried the Samsung Galaxy S4 for a while, and didn't care for it. To many steps to do the same things the iPhone does with less. Spoiled by the iPhone.
