Dam that's lucky.
The randomness of phone survivability always astounds me.

But......but........several self-proclaimed tech experts on internet said plastic in Samsung phones are cheap.
Did they lie to me ?! ;(

They are Noobs, they don't know QC / QA practices followed by OEMs.

The experts of nothing are forever spewing the rubbish that Samsung uses "cheap" plastic, lol, well if "cheap" plastic helped the phone survive the above then I don't mind this so-called "cheap" plastic :)
Experts of nothing 0 - 1 Samsung.

Definitely. The guys are marketing are usually not good at cutting a phone at that perfect spot that it still works.
Wait... that didn't make sense?

Would insurance reimburse or replace in a case like this? Or would they be real a$$holes and say 'It still works, can't replace it!'

Worst case, all you have to do is say you lost it. Then just throw it in the trash.

Lmao, so I went to hang out with my buddy today and this is his phone. I don't mean one like it, I mean a mutual friend of ours posted this on reddit.
