    i love how bob starts cracking up, he probably just saw all he has invested into that company go down the drain with the crack of that screen.

    I know it`s off topic, but i`ve just been on the NFL site for the Superbowl info and someone has actually wrote this in the comments regarding The Who`s halftime show.

    "this is going to be one of the worse super bowl half time shows. they should get some one that is actually good like eminem or drake to perform."

    I mean, i know music tastes vary and all that but.............well..............what a tool.

    This is the same concept of a bullet proof window; The layers will stop a bullet, but a sharp object will spread it thin and rupture.

    So he cracked the screen? Probably still fully functional. I would have pulled out a glock and shot it.

    That`s so funny, because clearly they did not expect the phone to break when he whacked it on the corner. Before I watched the vid, I thought he was going to break it on purpose, but that was pure accident, just trying to prove how great the phone was. The irony! (and yes, in this case, it is irony. Breaking a phone when trying to prove it can`t be broken is irony)

    He said "basically" unbreakable, allowing him to keep at least some of his dignity.

    It`s only the screen on those things that`s vulnerable, really.
    I`ve had a similar model to that one for 5 years and it`s fine.
    A friend of mine broke the screen by drop kicking at his friends face and one of my Dad`s friends used his on several building sites for the 3 years he had it and it was fine.

    Yes he did. He keeps all his dignity because of that one word "basically." As long as you don`t hammer with the screen side you should be fine. I saw that coming right when he started hitting with that side. The screen is the easiest thing to break on any phone because it is the most vulnerable.

    well, you know, i don`t go around smashing my phone on things so i`d say that that thing is probably pretty unbreakable by normal standards.

    Yeah, if he was a more glib reporter he would have said "well, the good news is I just earned myself a new phone!" or something like that to save the guy some face.. he was obviously defenseless.
