iPhone 4 Glass Shatters at 3.5 ft. Drop

The new iPhone 4 design has the glass sitting above the metal bezel, as opposed to sitting behind the metal frame as with previous iPhone models.  The folks at iFixyouri discovered that the glass shattered while dropping an empty iPhone 4 shell from waist level (3.5 ft.).  On the third test drop, the glass was shattered.  If this was simply an empty shell, I would imagine that the velocity of the fall would be greater with actual components inside.

  1. I thought Galileo showed us two iPhone's of different weights would still fall at the same rate.

  2. Ha ha! Nice. No, Apple doesn't care about gravity, even if it is the law.
