Apple Sued Over iPhone 4 Broken Glass

It appears that given the opportunity anyone and everyone will file a lawsuit against Apple, there have been several lawsuits in the past from iPhone owners, and apparently another is about to do the rounds of the law courts.

According to an article over on Intomobile by Marc Flores and by way of LA Weekly, Donald LeBuhn, a resident of Los Angeles has filed a class action suit against Apple due to the iPhone 4 glass cracking when his daughter dropped it.

Apparently LeBuhn claims that the iPhone 4 glass is not as strong as claimed and Apple advertising is misleading. According to the lawsuit, LeBuhn says… “Months after selling millions of iPhone 4s, Apple has failed to warn and continues to sell this product with no warning to customers that the glass housing is defective.”

However apparently LeBuhn compared his iPhone 4 with his pervious handset the iPhone 3GS and says the glass didn’t shatter when he dropped the 3GS from a similar height, and apparently he isn’t to only owner to make the same comparison.

Apparently SquareTrade, an independent warranty provider analysed 20,000 iPhone accidents and found that iPhone 4 users reported 82 percent more damages screens in the first four months when compares with 3GS users, and that the overall iPhone 4 accident rate was 68 percent higher than the 3GS.

So how many of our iPhone 4 toting readers have experience problems with their iPhone 4 glass cracking and do you feel the iPhone 3GS was better equipped to deal with accidental drops?

    I agree Geo, I’ve had my 3GS with the glass still unbroken for two years now and my 4GS which I have had for two weeks now has a shattered front face.  Cost to replace, $200USD.
