it will still crack when the phone is fully assembled because when dropped all the pressure will be placed on it because of the screen.
have to admit though this is the most anticipated iphone to date

Anonymous, 08 Jul 2014Haha are you so sure? Sand paper are made of silocon carbide, tungsten carbide or boron carbid... moreAre YOU sure about that? I haven't seen anything that indicates that diamond can be scratched by sandpaper? Source to back up that claim?
The Main Man, 08 Jul 2014Are you seriously saying that Apple has never copied anything before? apple copy to make it better ... like touch id... not copy but still the same
it's covered with sapphire, not the hole display... if it would be 100% sapphire, it would broke to 100000 pieces, beacuse the thinner it is, the easier it breaks
Virtruvian, 08 Jul 2014Not sure where in the article Apple proclaims to be the FIRST company to use sapphire displays... moreAmerica was first discovered by Leifur Eiriksson, but who got all the glory? Columbus. It's not about who did what first, it's who makes the most of it.
Apple have and always will make amazing tech that suits just about everyone.

People chill, I haven't heard Apple claiming anything, yet you guys are already up front denying lol.
In any case, this won't be the first time sapphire is used in smartphones, please, even the Apple fans know this.
This will be however the first time sapphire is used in screens on such a massive scale, this is what has caught the attention of the industry analysts.

Not sure where in the article Apple proclaims to be the FIRST company to use sapphire displays.
It was used on the Nokia Oro and the Motorola Aura if I remember correctly. Both mobiles, however, were niche luxury devices with price tags of well over $1500.00. Vertu uses them as well.
People really read what they want, don't they?
Face it. The iPhone 6 will be a hit. No matter of hoping otherwise will make it so.
It'll be, as usual, another standout device (unlike Androids) that won't be forgotten as soon as the newest Android flagship is released.
Lol...Apple release one device a year that keeps Android OEM's scratching their collective heads on how one device can be so great, while Samsung, LG, Sony and the rest scramble adding needless gimmicks to its devices to bolster sales and pique interest for the consumer.
With the 5s, the upcoming 4.7in. & the 5.5in, the iPhone has every demographic covered with THREE devices that feature 64 bit architecture and guaranteed updates.
Are you seriously saying that Apple has never copied anything before?

AJK , 08 Jul 2014I on the other hand switched to iPhone 5s from note2 and u know what i love ios and don't care... moreYou don't feel the difference in screen size switching from a note 2 to an iPhone 5? That my friend is the greatest lie EVER.
Please try again.
Hasn't Vertu been doing this whole sapphire display thing for a while now?
I don't think that the saphire glass can be bent like that....it is scratch ressistant but not that flexible
