    Despite being glossy and shiny, the undeniable fact is that glass is not a good material to make products that are constantly being moved around, under stress, and in the hands of users. Glass breaks. That's why you never see products made of glass around you, except when it's completely necessary because the product itself needs to be transparent.

    It doesn't matter that it is strengthened, like aluminosilicate glass, the one Apple uses in the iPhone 4's. In fact, strengthening glass to avoid scratching—which is what Apple did—makes it more prone to extreme shattering on shock. The reason: Aluminosilicate glass has a much higher internal tension than regular glass. What makes it harder also makes it more fragile.

    Cases of broken iPhone 4's backs are already appearing. One of Gizmodo's interns broke his iPhone 4 after accidentally dropping it while testing it. This hasn't changed from previous generations. Hell, I broke my iPhone display twice. The fact is that, at the end of the day, dropping the phone while handling it is something that everyone will suffer sooner or later.

    But the difference is that the iPhone 4 is all glass. If you drop any other phone, you have a 50% chance of breaking its screen. With the iPhone 4, the risk will always be there, no matter how it falls. It's just more exposed to damage because of the material choice.

    Some people argue that the shattering doesn't matter. That the important thing is that this glass is hard to scratch. But, as GDGT editor Ryan Block showed, this doesn't mean it's scratch-proof. He scratched his iPhone 4 accidentally, without even noticing.

    I pulled this from Gizmodo. Who the heck came up with the idea of the whole phone being wrapped in glass?? Seriously?? The screen is bad enough.

    Gizmodo has a bit of an Anti-Apple bias going on. Wonder why?

    I never use widgets and they drain the battery, and like Bandit said earlier, iPhone 4 has all those features (and I don't use those either).

    At the end of the day it's a ****ing phone that goes on the internet and takes pictures and HD video, and now they all do it so these arguments and fanboyism on both sides is getting pretty retarded.

    More from Gizmodo

    The iPhone 4's antenna problem continues. People around the world keep experiencing it. So many that a class action suit is already in the works. This video proves that a simple touch affects web page loading, stopping it completely.

    As you can clearly see here, this problem is not just about the iPhone 4 not displaying full bars, but it's about real data loss. It's pretty simple: Leaving the phone on the table loads the web page at full speed. Touching the problematic area, pauses the loading of the web page.

    We have already experienced this problem ourselves many times, with mail and voice call drops and voice degradation, but this video is pretty damning evidence about how it works. Since it's a design problem—and the antenna is all around the phone, making it hard to avoid unless you have a bumper or force your hand position—it will affect everyone at some point, unless you are really close to a cell tower.

    While the iPhone 4 is a great phone, this problem affects at least 40% of the iPhone buyers—according to most web polls—and as high as 93% of users according to a recent UK-based poll. Those who bought iPhone 4s here in Gizmodo are experiencing signal loss, although they are keeping it despite this problem. Joel Johnson, Brian Barrett, and myself would avoid it until the fix the problem.

    Apple hasn't yet provided with a fix except recommending to "hold the iPhone in a different way" or "buy a case."
