#6 "iPhones are better made and are better quality."
This claim popped up because I wrote that I liked the replaceable plastic back of my Samsung Galaxy S4. Time will tell. While I have yet to have an iPhone fail on me, that certainly wasn't the case with the iPod nano (read What to do when your brand-new iPod nano fails...and it will).
My take on this is that the glass back on the back of the iPhone 4-series phones was simply a bad idea. I locked mine inside a tough Otterbox and that kept it from breaking. But the phone itself was glass. I could drop the plastic back of my S4 on concrete and it might have a scratch. But the glass back of the 4S? The Internet is filled with pictures of broken iPhones.
Should Apple users feel better about themselves because of this? Not for earlier iPhones, certainly. Maybe new models. For that, we'll have to wait and see.
