    The average person you see walking down the street using a phone has a much higher chance of dropping a phone than most other circumstances.

    All glass phones are very fragile and break easily. If you own a Glass Phone then putting on a case is a must.

    I believe that it's both gorilla glass 5 on the front and back because of the 7 Pro's curved display

    Interesting to note that front glass of OnePlus 7 and 6T are GG6 whereas 6, 7pro, 7T are GG5 in the front as per Corning website. 7T pro hasn't been mentioned there, though I read somewhere else that 7Tpro has GG6 in the front. So it isn't exactly the curved screen factor, but something else which makes OnePlus take this decision.
    Weird to see older devices with newer glass and newer ones with older glass. I would have preferred drop protection over scratch protection anyday considering the price for screen replacement.

    Glass breaks if it gets a hit with enough force behind it. It's all about the force. Peak force a mm² can get vary greatly. When dropping the phone you can only hope for the impact to get dampened or get spread out as evenly as possible.

    Adding curves and rounded corners with minimal bezels and minimal frames to take the hit never does anything good when it comes to drop resistance. More bad hitpoints. More weaknesses. Less efficient ways to protect with bumper cases...nothing good ever comes out of this besides good looks.
