Android sheep? Come on, it's a well known fact only Apple owners are sheep thumb.gif

Also I agree with what most other users are saying, the sample is too small. Plus it could be bias due to the source, a mobile insurance company.

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.
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.

Where is your proof that the people polled weren't a good cross section of the population to begin with? You don't have any and I don't have any.

Everything you state is simply your theory while somebody else actually went and did an actual poll. The difference is they aren't making up ridiculous scenarios about those being polled and you are.

Oh and I could not care less about Apple being the focus. That is meaningless to me.

I suppose according to some here, polls should not even be done unless millions are surveyed. Well, good luck finding the money and keeping control of it so the results are not tarnished.

Sample size is plenty large enough. That is just one firm of quite a few that state as such.

Exactly why I left business/economics. Perfect for the sheep that doesn't want to think for themselves.

Yeah its impossible to sample the population, but if you are going to do something. Do it right or don't do it at all. The reason for doing something one way should not be because it is impossible to do it the proper way, so we will settle for this.

Out of the 50 or so people I know who own smart phones, the one that has a cracked phone is also the only LG user. This just in 100% of LG users have cracked screens.

That's just it. It would take millions of dollars to do a large scale poll and keep it clean.

Until somebody wants to fork over the dough, scientific polls will remain in the low thousands.

I don't really know how much weight you can put on this survey, but I will say that I see A LOT of iPods with cracked screens. People don't usually put cases on those so they are not as protected. I think the lack of a raised bezel on a device definitely makes it easier to crack if you drop them without a case.

I feel like there would be similar numbers among most smart phones. I personally drop my phone a lot. I am incredibly clumsy. I cracked the screen on my old Droid X2 and had to claim insurance on it.

That's what an Otterbox or Lifeproof case is for.

You don't buy a retail $500/$600 phone and not protect it just because you want the slim feel in your hands.

I personally have grown weary of Otterbox cases since the skins tend to strecth and not fit properly after a short period of time.

I am going with a Lifeproof case this time around because i lost my 4S so now i need a 5 or wait for the 5S i guess.

Being on Sprint sucks because until this month they offered no protection on theft/lost iphones lol.

Besides any of that the screens are cheap to replace anyway!
