    Default dont think so
    messany you need to hop off of the gizmodo banwagon, This shatter test is crap. of course a hollow iphone's glass screen will break, just like dropping a light bulb. Give apple more credit than that.

    So you're going to compare a half-assed put together phone by some nobodies with "authentic" parts from a shady chinese plant with not even all parts intact (no motherboard) and compare it to a production-spec iPhone straight from Apple? I thought the author was inspector gadget with how far this article is reaching

    What about the phone with all the components on? The weight of the components may allow the phone to more likely fall on the edges of the phone thus making more sense out of the new "bumper" cases made by apple. Whenever i have dropped my 3g it always falls on the corners and thats why there are a lot of cases with silicone and hard plastic corners.

    This is a stupid waste of bandwidth because this company did not use the same type of stainless steel either.
    How could they? Oh, you mean they nought from an unreliable Chinese third part parts manufacturer?
    So im SURE they also got the pcb board, a4 CPU, battery, etc that all ties the entire phone together didn't they?

    Oh what? You say that all they did was get unreliable possibly same parts, slapped them together with some screws with some sights in to make it the same wieght as a real iPhone 4?

    Ok then so go ahead and skip the iPhone. assume apple didn't consider build quality abd there will be one less person in line on June 24th

    C'mon people...Its the same scenario if you take a car out of the dummies test section and put in the middle of a train track...

    "It only survives one wreck" Oh nooo! Its a BAD car!

    That is media frenzy. In a universe of possibilities, a phone like that, build with such an investment of tech and materials makes 1 in 1000 to shatter like this in a fall of that kind.

    Once again, don't forget that Apple is 5+ years ahead, things like this are being taken in mind.

    Just my 2 cents.

    They must have hit a weak spot. The iPhone 3G was rated pretty durable, right? Wrong... Not when you hit the weak spot anyway. I dropped it on the perfect spot of the corner from about 3-5 inches off the ground, shattered the lower left side of the glass. (Luckily it was relatively minor, the cracks don't overlap the screen.)

    Get this garbage off of the MMi frontpage, now.

    Jesus.

    What a waste of space and time.

    GET IT OFF IF YOU KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR YOUR SITE.

    It's a iPhone, take care of it! I've had my 3GS for about a year, not a single scratch on it.

    From what I understand, this phone was practically hollow, with nothing inside to support the glass, am I right? If that's the case, it's not a good example.

    But the iphone 4 hasnt been released yet. Maybe they didnt use the expensive glass on prototypes, and this broken phone is old style glass. As you will see from the gizmodo images; things have changed since that leak, ie: the chrome accents around the flash/camera lens. Im not woried and ive seen the video of the dell phone that uses gorilla glass. And iphone4 does use gorilla glass.
    That's like talking about a Perfect game !!!

    Parts, as in not assembles by Apple. Apple puts chemicals on the glass to ensure that this does not happen. For all we know, that could easily be the prototype parts. I'm sure that Apple has put the REAL iPhone 4 under many stress tests.

    I have dropped my iPhone 3G from eight feet onto solid concrete, and the screen still hasn't cracked. In fact, I've dropped it on many occasions onto other hard surfaces and never have I gotten more than a scratch.

    I love the guy who threatened the site if the the story stays up.. LOL

    Anyways, it sounds like a ploy from a competitor to try to dampen the sales of the new iPhone.
    If when it comes out, and people start having the glass shatter while talking on it, I will then start to worry.
    If you are a "butter fingers", thats your tough shiet. Just buy a warranty for it I guess.

    Listen to some of you. Crying an getting so defensive. Threats? You're like a bunch of little girls who just had their new pretty pretty princess doll made fun of.

    We all read the post, it was assembled with supposed parts, so let's take it with a grain of salt ad wait til an actual released one breaks.

    Geesh
