Glass that's used on iphone is supposedly the same reinforced glass used in helicopters.

Okay. So don't buy one. What's the point of hashing this out on here? It's one guy - I've dropped mine without breaking it. So that must mean they are okay, right? One person's experience does not mean much.

Let's argue about something more important or interesting for a change!

I can post whatever I like. YOu can choose not to read it. sheesh :?

Some of us actually take into consideration features of a phone - shatter proof glass being a major selling point - before buying.

Funny how they compare the glass to a "helicopter windshield" even though the entire phone has less thickness than that. :)
