That day a tablet/smartphone dont get the screen cracked when dropping like that on concrete and I say its real innovation.

I thought that day was here with LG's and Samsung's flexible displays. If you can apply pressure to the curved LG phone without breaking it I would "assume" that a drop test would not break the glass (or what ever their using) from a normal height.

Those are just are just curved display and not Samsungs YOUM or LGs "flexible oled display" (whatever it gonna be called).

If you drop glass on concrete it will break.

Nobody is his or her right mind will carry around a tablet of any kind that is not in a protective case. My iPad Mini Retina will arrive Tuesday. I paid an extra $69 for Apple's leather case and cover.
How about a real world drop test using a protective, but not bulky, case and cover (for instance the one I've ordered from Apple).

I've seen old ladies taking pictures with their iPads - no covers - at weddings. I chuckle everytime, yo.

Better use some plastic cover to better protect the glass and back... Oh, wait.
