    Does anyone know if the screen on the new 5 is similar to the 4/4S where glass and digitizer are glued together?

    Just curious so I can carry naked in my pocket without having to worry about dust wiggling its way under the glass over time.

    It's way different. The display and touch panel are infused together, "in-cell" technology. So if you drop the phone you need a whole new display.

    If you drop it and it breaks...SquareTrade's drop test video didn't even break the display, a few others didn't either. One did, but only by slamming it on the ground.

    But I don't think dust under the screen will be an issue.
