iPhone 4 Glass Cracks at 1ft Drop?
Earlier we posted a drop test video of the iPhone 4 being dropped from roughly 3 feet up, but this article isn’t about that drop test but rather a real life accident which shows that the iPhone 4 glass isn’t as tough as Apple says.
According to Jesus Diaz over on Gizmodo, this particular iPhone 4 was only dropped from one-foot. Apparently jaredfranklin.com posted the original article along with the image of a shattered iPhone 4 back, and says he is convinced this will be the “first of many.”
Apparently someone close to Jared received their precious iPhone 4 today and just a few hours after accidentally dropped the device which resulted in a damaged rear, although he does note that the iPhone 4 still works.
Lesson to be learnt here is no matter how tough the tech boys say something is, sometimes they can get it wrong too, and thus make real sure you don’t accidentally drop that lovely iPhone 4 sitting in your pocket or you may just end up with the same.
