I saw a video on youtube of a drop test between a samsung galaxy s2 and an apple iphone4 and the iphone4 got creamed. the iphone4 cracked at a lower height. and when they went to drop from the top of a persons head the s2 still didnt cracky. i dont know if its logical to equate something that is not heavy as lacking durability. i know holding something heavy has a psychological effect from picking up stones as a child, but plastic is a polymer that is built to be tough and light in weight.
