    What does everybody thing about the new iPhone 8's being glass on front & back. Is it going to break easier?

    Are you really asking if glass breaks easier than aluminum?

    Take a wine glass and drop it onto a hardwood/tile floor. Repeat this test with a metal coffee mug.

    Post back with your findings.

    No, not at all. I'm actually upgrading from a 7 to an 8 (which is a silly upgrade I admit, but I have my reasons).

    You asked if glass would break easier than aluminum. Of course it will.

    I'm very hesitant about upgrading my phone for that very reason. I have the 7 Plus but I'm on a payment plan so it's just a swap it in and go situation. But I'd hate to have to put it in a big bulky case to prevent it from breaking.

    Wait till Everythingapplepro, Techrax, and gizmoslip push it to the limit when they get it, we'll see how durable they are.

    Those drop tests don't do a good job simulating real-world conditions quite honestly.
