Even with increased police presence in the streets of major cities, smartphone thefts rose in 2013. In New York City, 8465 Apple devices were stolen last year, a gain of 8% over the prior year. It was the second consecutive year that this stat increased. In San Francisco, the number of cellphones stolen was nearly 2400, a rise of 23% from 2012.

This is why i dont like finger print or retina sanners. I'd rather just lose a phone than for a body part to be taken along with it.

I fear from thefts and don't like them coz we invest our hard earned money on such lovely devices (which are costlier today) and these thieves easily steals and flies away. :(

Keeping and using costlier phones is not an easy task and risky too now-a-days.
