Nexus 4 drop test proves that glass is breakable

I’m surprised it took this long, but we do have our first Nexus 4 drop test. Seriously folks, the Nexus 4 (and the Optimus G) is a delicate phone since it pretty much has glass all over it. The front is made of Gorilla Glass 2, but the back is a glass-like substance that does not meet those standards. It would take a miracle for the the Nexus 4 to not get damaged upon a drop on any hard surface, but I guess the question is how much damage can one expect? The video is in German so you might not be able to tell what’s being said, but it’s a drop test, you don’t need to. Hit the break for two videos.

    front glass is always strong…..back glass always breaks no matter how tough….similar issues with iphone 4/4s as well….that is why phone swith plastic/metal backs are preferred
