iPhone 4 users report 82 percent more breaking screens

Posted on Wednesday, October 13 2010 @ 12:13:28 CEST by


Marketing and reality are often two very different thing, and it appears the screen of Apple's iPhone 4 is no exception to this. The company promised the new iPhone has a better, stronger touchscreen than the iPhone 3GS, but a report conducted by SquareTrade reveals that iPhone 4 customers are reporting 82 percent more screen breaks than users of the old iPhone 3GS.

The report estimates as many as 15.5 percent of iPhone 4 owners will have an accident within the first year.
As reports from SquareTrade suggests, customers are complaining about their iPhone 4's breaking, 82% more than the iPhone 3GS. What is more shocking is that Apple promised a better, stronger touch-screen over previous iPhone's. The study was conducted on more than 20,000 iPhone 4s covered by SquareTrade Care Plans and found that the iPhone 4 had an 82% increase in reported broken screens compared to the iPhone 3GS.

The report really puts the iPhone 4 accident reports into perspective, as an estimated 15.5% of iPhone 4 owners will have an accident within the first year. Taking all issues into account, the iPhone 4 is reporting 68% higher than the iPhone 3GS - which means people are not careful with their iPhone, or the glass design might have been a poor choice.
