Design? Since the sides of the glass are exposed?

I've seen people drop iPhones a foot or two and it shatters. My father dropped his Droid X while he was doing 70 mph on his motorcycle and the worst that happened was his 50 cent case got a scratch on the side.
Yeh, it's because the plastic bezels and backs surrounding phones like the SGS, SGS II, Atrix, whichever one you pick... they act as a slight cushion and allow the body to flex on impact. On the iPhone the aluminum band and glass back allow for no flex which is why they're more prone to actually cracking
