    Does anyone know if the back of the iPhone4 logo is a real mirror or some type of reflective sticker?:confused::confused:

    Polished metal.

    FWIW a "real mirror" is just glass...

    Technically it is a real mirror because is a metal, foil in this case, backed pane of glass.

    Does that mean if the phone is dropped the mirror can be broken/cracked? I only seen the outside housing glass cracked.

    There is only one glass plate on the back of the iPhone. The thing that makes the Apple logo shiny is a bit of metal foil on the other side, instead of black or white paint.
