If you remember the advertisments showing the iPhone 4 being bent to extreme angles, but not breaking, you may think it was pre-arranged. It is kind of like those advertisements you see on television of a hamburger that looks six inches tall with cheese and ketchup dripping out. When you actually go buy one, it is half that size. Surely that iPhone 4 ad was not a real, everyday iPhone 4 in the ad ? Well, data is showing up that may give that idea some credence.

An iPhone 4 is 13.8 percent likely to be accidentally damaged. The next in line in vulnerability belongs to the Motorola company with 12.2 percent. HTC brings up third place for vulnerability to accidental damage with the same rating; 12.2 percent. Blackberry devices seemed the toughest of the group and were only damaged 6.2 percent of the time during accidents.

So, what is the problem with the iPhone 4 ? You can probably guess, but the front and back of this smartphone is covered in glass. The glass is special, something that Apple calls “aluminosilicate glass”. It is used in helicopters and high speed trains. That may sound impressive, but dropping an iphone 4 on a flat surface a limited number of times breaks the aluminosilicate glass cover of an iPhone 4. Bummer. You probably thought it would last around twenty or thirty drops until breaking. The real number is three. The iPhone 4 was dropped from three and a half feet, about the length of a pants pocket to the floor. On the third, a loud “pop” was heard and the front glass was covered in cracks. The bad news is that this sort of thing is not covered under iPhone warranty.

More bad news on the fragility of the iPhone includes the covers used to protect them. They can scratch the back of the iPhone, causing it to break prematurely. Glass-cutters use a diamond to place a scratch on glass in the place they want it to break. iphone covers seem to be doing the same thing these days. Dirt enters the cover, and when the cover is removed, the dirt will scratch the iPhone 4.

The good news is that not all iPhone 4 cases are prone to scratching the handset. Selecting the correct case can prevent damage, like it was designed to do. Apple has stopped selling cases and protective covers on their site. This is seen as a positive idea towards Apple customers. The screen protectors are similar to selling flood insurance to those living in the Mojave. That screen protector is nearly useless. The glass on the iPhone 4 is just too fragile.

One of the best things to do for the fragile iPhone 4 is to cover it up completely. While doing so, make sure no dirt gets inside the cover. This will help keep you out of that 13.8 percent of people who accidentally damage their Apple smartphone.

My iPhone is very stylish. Other phones look uncool in its presence, but one sincle scratch and the phone looses its bling. I hate to say it but the iPhone indeed is a very fragile mobile phone.

I would go with Windows Phone 7. I use both operating setmyss on a daily basis, and I have to admit that I am really impressed with how smooth it is to navigate and how easy to use WP7 is. Until I upgraded to Android 2.3.3 my Samsung Galaxy S was nowhere near as fluent as my LG E900.AS for apps, I have found almost all apps I need to use on both operating setmyss. Yes, Android has over 250,000 apps and WP7 has barely 25,000 but Android has had a few years head start. Furthermore, WP7 has the bes
