    The mods closed the original thread, but I found this side issue interesting, so I thought I'd start a new thread on this.

    I have to say I've never noticed this issue. I can see the point about iPhone 5 and the mini being easier to break if you drop them on a corner, which is why I got cases for both my 5 and the mini (and indeed for all my iDevices). But screen discolouring with pressure and feeling softer? I can't say I've noticed, but again, I put screen protectors on all my iDevices. Have other people noticed this issue? Has this been discussed before and I missed it?

    Well, the second quote is bull. The Minis screen is flush, not like the raised iPhone 5. Ignore this rubbish and enjoy your devices.

    The mini screen feels VERY thin. Pressing down on it makes it bend. And it feels kinda hollow only that's probably not the right word to describe it.

    I agree 100%

    It feels 'plasticy' and not glassy like the regular iPad.

    It is thinner, but it's also smaller. It's not easy to say which of them is more durable. My feeling is that they're pretty similar.

    And Yourself?
    I agree. It does indeed feel a bit thinner, but I don't think it's something to be concerned about!
