    The iPhone 4 S⃣ has the same glass as the iPhone 4.

    Rumor is if you buy a 3 (Network Three) iPhone 4S - they have upgraded theirs to bulletproof glass and you can use it as a sheild.

    They truely are the best network around arent they Iphone3gs?

    Dont you think if they actually stuck gorilla glass on this sucker they would have pushed that as a big selling point by now?

    AT&T uses plastic that is treated to feel like glass.

    On apple official website it states it's the same kind of glass they use ob military helipoctors windows this is 30 times stronger and more scratch resistant then plastic.

    Even though more customers had a broken their iPhone 4 in the first 4 months then they did with the 3GS.

    Apple got sued as they released a faulty product without informing customers of the fault

    I don't see the logic here. They just told us about the technology. They never said it WASN'T going to crack. Just because it's from heli windows doesn't mean that the right fall wouldn't crack it.

    It's a stupid argument anyway...

    The tougher glass is, the more brittle is, so it cracks easier.

    Glass that is soft and easy to scratch is hard to crack and vica versa.

    Apple builds the phone in China. AT&T is a carrier. Perhaps someone is confused.

    Exactly. That's why plastic doesn't crack as easily as glass does. Now, if the screen is made from diamonds, we have a different ball game here.

    Hey, an elephant tusk home button with a shark fin back would be pretty sweet.

    I do not really care much what they make it out of as long as it holds up like my iP4 did. Not a scratch and it has been there and back!:D

    See in that case it doesn't really matter because instead of dropping and cracking the phone, you drop it and scratch and scuff the crap out of it, regardless it would need to get replaced unless you just lived with it (which ive known people to do, and have done :p). Therefore Apple did you a favor in making a cracked device more of an eye sore than still very unattractive scuffs in order to remind you to to fix it :)

    Faulty product...?! If you drop a glass onto concrete and it shatters, would you call that a faulty product too? FFS!

    Not directed at you really, but use some common sense eh? Glass shatters/cracks if subject to high stresses, get over it, accept responsibility, and move on. This culture of suing anybody over the most ridiculous of things is what's causing a lot of the problems in this world. I guess only in America would there be the need to have a disclaimer on a vacuum cleaner to not use it for sexual pleasure otherwise it could cause harm... :rolleyes:

    Ahh the, "I had never driven a manual/stick shift car before. I was hitting the pedal in my Toyota and it wouldn't brake, so I freaked out and pushed hard on the accelerator".

    "Going to sue Toyota to get them all recalled, claim it as a defect".

    The pedal was the clutch. :rolleyes:

    Apple doesn't advertise other companies technologies. Even if it had Gorilla glass they won't tell you.

    They don't own Twitter, that was an advertised feature of iOS5.

    Everyone calm down. Apple is using the same glass they used for the iPhone 4, which, btw, is not shatter or scratch-resistant. I have 2 scratches on the face of my iPhone 4.
