The problem with the iPhone 4/4s is it was a crappy design from a robustness standpoint. Especially the glass back that gets scratched to hell from normal use, doubles your chances shattering on impact/falls, slides off every surface that isn't flat/rubber, and slips from your hands if the are wet/sweaty. It was a major sacrifice of durability for style. And a mistake on a mobile device in my opinion.
I think it means that if you are sweaty and clumsy, you should probably add that as criteria in your smartphone search.
