You know that electric car was faulted for being too silent.

A good design must take in to account all fairly possible situations.

But frankly I think scratching is much bigger flaw of iPhone 5.

Wait a min....what was wrong with that? I have a orig Droid RAZR...and many times I forgot which pocket it was in and sat on it a few times. It never bent or cracked...but there were reports of RAZRs cracking from the same thing.

It looks like Apple is trying to beat Samsung with a flexible phone/display.

The Apple iPhone 5 is such a design fail. Just add this one to the ALREADY long list of design defects. lol

While this is horrific, I am mildly impressed that the screen seems intact. What glass does Corning make for these?

I was thinking the exact same thing about the screen? It didnt crack? I can see the spin for this tho.....try that with other phones and if they crack or break....iPhone 5 would be more seen as durable...

Now that Apple knows the screen can bend without breaking, the next version of iPhone will be iPhone 5 S flex.

I knew this was coming. Apple stole Samsung's bendable technology. Now they will patent it.
I don't want to live on this planet anymore. :/

.......... The iPhone 5S, now with bendable display :p

On a more serious note, Apple just patented the bending of touch screen glass (I'm not kidding!)
