My phone has had the same screen protector on it for the last 4 years. There's some minor scratches in the protector but between that and my case, my phone is in pretty pristine shape. Helps that I'm not on my phone all the time too I suppose.
My watch on the other hand... I don't know what happened to that sucker but it's currently in surgery. Aha.

Mine is good, my phone has tempered glass plus I have a good case with another tempered screen protector - PLUS MOST IMPORTANTLY I don't use my phone in inappropriate circumstances or hold it when i'm trying to carry stuff etc.

My electronics are generally pretty spotless, I have a good record of keeping them in great shape. I remember the phone sales guy being surprised that my samsung galaxy s2 looked pretty much new when I bought a new phone early this year. I tend to keep electronics for 5 years or more, until they become completely outdated, but I've never had to change or repair something because I'd broken it. I can't stand people who have a spider web screen that is completely shattered to bits.
S3- although the screen protector is pretty scratched up, the screen underneath is in perfect condition.
Surface Book- I really should get a screen protector for this, but I've got a case instead so no cracks.
I once cracked a screen on a device by accident (though it was pretty crummy anyway), but otherwise, the only damage my devices normally accumulate is from eventual cosmetic wear and tear, mostly small scratches. I even clean them from time to time.
Most of the people I know have phones that are totally shattered, although most seem to have older phones than I do. I use a tempered glass screen protector and a Unicorn Beetle case. About a month ago, I dropped my Nexus 6P on a tile floor from three feet and the screen protector was totally destroyed (it came off in pieces), but the screen underneath was fine.
Well, update: My S3 is in my trashcan...
My friend threw it with full force and absolutely killed the touch panel, dented the battery, made the rocker button pop off and the blue side trim is falling off.
May it rest well

I want a V200 to add to collection, but it is $200.
