Is there such thing on earth that is unbreakable? Imo, it would be better if it says its shatter-proof. Nothing in this world is indestructable. I had nothing against the phone. :)

Yeah because it's also not gorilla glass, so it is not a glass at all, and also a 0 inches (theorically)plastic display vs 5 inches display, guess which one could be broken? :D

I prefer a scratch resistant plastic cover because it will be more shock resistant. I know what I'm talking about. I owned 2 Defy, both of them with broken gorilla glass after a drop right in the corners area. I changed the broken glass with some unoriginal Chinese plastic touch (non-gorilla), it seems my Defys are more resistant to shock. Guess why: plastic.

Could be interesting, maybe unbreakable is a stretch but will be better at surviving impacts than glass, scratches who knows? I always use screen protectors anyway, can be replaced really cheaply when they get scratched and saves the screen. Although they don't protect against impact.
