My car has never been in an accident. Using the same mentality displayed here, accidents do not exist.
So 625 clumsy
users out of 2500 accurately represent 90 million phones?
Let's go ask 2500 office workers, then go ask 2500 construction workers, then go ask 2500 navy personnel, 2500 stay at home moms and I bet the results of each 2500 tested would be vastly different than these 2500. That's the problem here, they don't provide you with anything more than a number. Maybe the ~625 clumsy users were that of construction jobs and had their pone broken that way, while the rest who weren't broken were office workers. They don't say who was surveyed, nor do they even say it was random, for all we know it could be their own employees they asked or they just made up numbers.
You laugh at people defending something a poll states without any evidence to back up their statistics? I laugh at you. I want details. I want to know what they did for a living, how much the phone is used daily, and how it is used daily, I want to know how many times ( roughly ) it's been dropped in it's life time before the crack happened, I want to know if they had a case on it, and I want to know if they broke it intentionally to simply get a new phone from the insurance ( it does happen, quite a bit ). All things that accurately help one to understand if it's just a devastating imperfection and really is a problem, or not. The article even says, gorilla glass is made to be stronger than normal glass, but will still break with enough stress.
I've dropped many devices over the years, and not a single one has cracked. So we apply the same mentality as your example, great. Now we reverse the situation, all my devices have cracked, so again we apply the same mentality and all must be cracked then. You saw one side, but you didn't see the other side, but neither side are able to be trusted.

What's next? A ten year multi million dollar research paper on the benefits of eating some actual fresh vegetables as opposed to processed foods? How about the benefits of breathing for human beings?
Faith in humanity -2 for today.
It's OCN, nothing more than a pot shot at Apple. Funny no one posts these stupid articles about any other phone company. Well, occasionally they do but the android sheep end up getting them closed so fast it doesn't matter.Edited by Shrak - 2/10/13 at 10:19am
