We’re now proud owners of iPhones! I was actually able to walk into a Verizon store and get an iPhone 5 on Saturday. My wife has a 4S.
One of the things the Verizon guy told us was that the iPhone 4s was extremely fragile. Dropping it from 3 feet would make it explode. He wasn’t sure about the 5 yet, but he assumed it would be.
Now I’ve seen many pictures of iPhones with broken screens, but are they that bad? Worse than other phones?
I’ve had an iPod touch for years and it’s still in one piece.
He also said that Androids are pretty solid. Especially the Droid Incredibles we were coming from.
Based on his advice, we got cases. I would have eventually anyway, but I was hoping to get them on Amazon for cheaper.
He also talked us into the warranties. I’m thinking of dropping that though for the cheaper AppleCare+.
So is the iPhone really that breakable? More than other phones?
