Durability Is Questionable - Moto X

This phone is amazing, but the durability they advertize is non-existent.  I had this phone for three weeks and loved it, but then one drop from my lap to a carpeted floor has rendered the touchscreen completely inoperable.  It dropped on it's side and the screen seems to have cracked on the inside.  Just a heads up that though this phone is amazing, I find it less durable than an iPhone which is pretty miserable IMO.

Still might be a worthwhile purchase maybe at $99, but certainly not $199 considering it only costs $230 to build.  I also bet you'll see a TON of refurb offers for $49 next spring/summer.

How's your Moto X reacted to small drops?

Even though it is $230 to build, you do realize the phone is $600 to purchase right? $199 is the price with a 2 year contact - it is subsidized.

Sure, I'm just pointing out that the manufacturing cost of this phone is considerably lower than others in the product category.  That leads me to believe they'll be willing to knock it down to $99 in short order.
