Its Screen

The iPhone 4 boasts a glass screen that Apple claims is stronger than plastic and more resistant to scratches. But its durability--and scratch resistance--has yet to be tested by users' everyday wear.

Already, there are reports that the iPhone's screen smudges easily and fails to withstand "shock and sudden impact." CNET writes in its early review of the iPhone 4, "The glass attracts smudges by the ton and durability remains a concern." iFixyouri warns the iPhone's design could make its glass screen susceptible to shattering: "On the new iPhone, the glass basically sits on top of the aluminum frame. On the old iphone, it was recessed and protected by a chrome bezel."
