Seeing all the fanboys argue against anyone discussing its durability has become comical. Do we know if there's a widespread problem with the strength of the new iPhones? No. Do we know if there's a design weakness? No. But we have indications that the answers to these questions are more yes than no. The CR Report video was clear: the new iPhones performed terribly compared to the older iPhone 5 and Note 3. Personally, let's move past this and include other things. How many smashed glass iPhones have you seen in your life? Probably at least some. Then there's water damage. Then there might be bending. And then there's the aluminum that scratches easily. Cases obviously protect the phone. These phones - all smartphones - need to be incredibly durable. No excuses anymore. The glass shouldn't be smashing. The devices should effectively be waterproof. And the materials shouldn't scratch or require that you use a case. And most importantly, it should take an insane amount of force to permanently bend the devices. I wonder what these things would be like with a form of carbon fibre or some other material that is super light and strong and doesn't scratch easily with some shots of rubber on the bottom and top.
