    After receiving my iphone in the mail today and having several hours of playtime with it, there just 1 feeling i cant seem to escape. Being scared.

    My phone just seems so much skinnier with the new design (no case yet either) compared to my iphone 4. It simply feels delicate and just completely open to being dropped and broken. Both weight and size differences are going to take some "break in time " to get used too. Also, like anyone else, we all paid a lot of money on this 1 particular device and it truly is brand new. I just feel scared all the time of using it. I feel that it being so new and to me a completely different phone, I feel that I cannot truly get used to it. Not to mention losing unlimited data, I just dont seem to really get fully comfortable device.

    Is this good, bad, neither? Just curious as to how others feel.

    There's less glass to shatter and that's more scary for you?

    At first i was , then went with apple care and the "scare" factor has gone away , and I'm loving my device instead of wondering what's gonna happen to my phone

    It's made of aluminium and is very light so it should fare well with drops.

    Obviously the heavier it is, the more damage it will sustain when dropped.

    Well after hearing all the people having complaints straight from the factory never mind personal use with the black iPhone, can I really be blamed ?

    I guess not having apple care can exponentially heighten that feeling but I do have insurance so I don't know. I just feel like its something to be extra cautious about, even if it is only a cell phone.

    Is your phone in fact defective? If so, get it exchanged under the one year warranty. If not, you have nothing to worry about.

    Ummm yours was not damaged straight from the factory though was it?

    So from now onwards if you damage it yourself its no different to dropping any other expensive device, they will all chip, shatter, mark, or scratch.

    Look after it and it will look like new, drop it or knock it about and it will not look like new. Thats about all there is to it.

    If you throw a case on the phone, you'll get a little bit of that size back. It'll feel less delicate and you'll be able to handle it better. At least that's how it was for me.
