So apparently, HTC Legend isn't just one of the most gorgeous handsets ever made -- it's also one of the most durable.
If the flinch-and-cringe-inducing drop test (, which really is a throw test - if you notice) video below were to be taken as reference, then it's safe to say that THIS won't happen to your HTC Legend in case you accidentally drop it:

HTC Legend's design prevents the glass from taking a lot of stress. There's actually a gap between the screen and the aluminum 'lip' that lines it - so when the phone hits something solid, the screen hardly takes a beating. Also the 'foor' or that curved part at the bottom of the phone prevents the handset from falling flat on its glass, therefore all stress from a fall goes straight to the body.
