There are a lot of others screens out there that use gorilla glass that do not break as easily. Besides, would rather have a plastic screen that doesnt shatter than a glass screen that does. Yea, can be the most careful person in the world...but everyone messes up at some point. Only takes once as well.
The best quality stuff shouldnt break so easily either. What it is called QUALITY.
Never said it cannot happen to androids. Apple products are more susceptible to it...a lot more susceptible.
Why lots of people/stores sell kits and repair iPhone screens.
Your argument here is invalid as every single fall / drop of a product will shatter depending on the angle it falls and hits the floor, as well as the surface it lands on.
Here's a photo of my iphone4 after being dropped on concrete from 3ft in the air ... THREE times ....
One small issue with the bottom right. Glass is perfect on front and back other than that.
So no ... other products aren't better if they use the same glass. They USE THE SAME GLASS. It's all about coincidental positioning of fall and impact. I'd much rather have a nice metal and glass device than a cheap ass plastic thing thank you very much.
