    Gorilla glass manufacturers claims if smartphones were as this as first generation iPhones their glass would not break as often as they do now.

    Why phone manufacturers are in race to produce thin phones. Phones are so thin it feels it could slip any moment. the body is so fragile that it get dents easily.

    I believe majority of smartphone users use some type of protective cover like case or screen guard which would make phone atleast 2mm thicker. So won't it be better if body is made better so it doesn't get dents. Casing is made strong so glass don't break.

    Like most manufacturers of consumer goods they respond to consumer demand in the market.
