The phone didn\'t have a circuit board so it was hollow? Did they bother to put something INSIDE the case? If not then this test is garbage. A hollow object will create much more vibration than one that has something inside to help absorb the shock. But of course they are in the business of fixing iphones so why not right?

This was my concern, the fragility of exposed glass on the edges. Aesthetics have been prioritized over the likely risk of damage from a dropped phone. I\'m keeping my 3gs thank you.
