Everyone complained about the original iPhone being too thick, robust and too slippery because the back was aluminum Everyone complained the iPhone 3G/S felt too cheap because the back was plastic and it could scratch easily, it wobbled on flat surfaces and and it was hard to "grip" because it had rounded off edges So Apple made a glass & stainless steel sandwich iPhone which IMO is the most durable EVERYDAY phone than anything else. The glass IS scratch resistant but not scratch proof. The point of that is to prevent the glass panels to look like 2003 scratched plastic cell phone screens. I'm glad they banned screen protectors because they were a waste of money. Apple offered the bumper for those clumsy people and it didn't have a front and back because the glass is resilient against scratches. Now everyone complains that it scratches (barely) the glass shatters if you drop it (OMG REALLY) and it's too thin/uncomfortable to hold because it's squared off. Not to mention the "antennagate" issue which was blown WAYYYY out if proportion. I remember noticing cell phones from like 2005 suffer from it when you gripped it around the base or where the antenna was. Just use the damn phone and be careful not to drop it--the end. Cool story right bros?
