    1) Dropping your electronics just means the user is careless, it's not the manufacturers fault in the first place.
    2) Notice how they say its not the REAL phone, they are just parts they "somehow" got. They are not from "Apple." Why would they "distribute" their parts if they JUST released the phone? It was first leaked, thats how people started making crappy look alike parts. So you can expect some bootleg items.

    Well thanks to companies like WorthAve that insures the iphone, I'm not much worried about breaking mine...of course I don't plan on breaking it either. I've had every iphone that came out and never cracked the glass on any of them.

    If u put it in an OtterBox case, i dont think ur gonna have much to worry about. Then again, whats the point in a bullet proof phone if it lives in a case like the rest of them do, LoL

    Fake iPhone 4. Knock Off. Phony. Cheap Imitation. Not Real.

    iPhone 4 not even released yet. If it's flexible, it shouldn't break so easily. Look at plexiglass. I'll take a look at a real drop test when the iPhone 4 is actually released.

Within the last twenty-fours hours, photos have surfaced across the web depicting a shattered 4th generation iPhone. And if comments posted to many gadget blogs beneath the photos are true, a good number of prospective iPhone 4 buyers may not be so fast to purchase the new handset in fear of it being a veritable "shatter magnet."

    But is that label for the new iPhone fitting or even deserved? Here's where the speculation was born. The fix-it gurus at "iFix your i," an increasingly well-known online presence that assists with Apple product repairs, claim to have obtained original iPhone 4 components. Got that? It isn't actually the new iPhone. It's a makeshift product using iPhone 4 "parts." Once fastened together - minus the circuit board, etc. - the team played a home-game version of Myth Busters and repeatedly dropped their creation in order to test how it handles impact.

    The photo above shows the iPhone after three drops. It survived the first two without injury. The third strike (a drop from an elevation from 3.5 feet) proved sufficient to shatter the glass housing. This "evidence" seems to contradict the claim from Apple that the new iPhone is made from a chemically strengthened form of glass that is some "20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic." Naturally, the photos released by iFix your i have rattled some folks.

    Even though the experiment is far from scientific, a mock iPhone 4 shattering so easily certainly isn't good news ahead of the product launch later this month. But we won't really know for sure how much of a glass-jaw, so to speak, the new iPhone has until the masses put some wear and tear on a device that Apple maintains is the most durable iPhone to date.

    Image via iFix your i
    I find it interesting that they drop it three times but yet the metal section of the phone has not dent or scratches. It looks like they hit it with a something the what the the glass cracked you sure they didn't throw it from 3 feet instead of dropping. There is no proof they got the part from apple. They might have received fake parts that look like they belong to the iphone.

    Did you read the article. They only used parts they got from suppliers and those were only the case and glass. So this is not really a test of anything.

    We all know that, why the hell is this on the front page? I made an iphone 4 using popsicle sticks n elmers glue and it hold up pretty well against drops. I could write a story and take a pic for you if you'd like?
