    You guys can argue all you want about what causes the glass back to break, but you better believe that it DOES break.
    Well of course it can, it's glass. No one ever said it was indestructible.

    Anyone else think that the supply issue may be down to a manufacturing problem?

    The glass on my Nexus 4 hasn't broken but I dropped it from maybe 50-60cm whilst sitting (was a bit merry) with the bumper on and since then its... creaked?

    Literally dropped mine from about 1 foot above the tile floor in my classroom (I'm a school teacher) and it broke. It started off as a small crack but of course grew. At first I did not think it would have cracked because it landed flat... meaning that it did not land on an edge or whatnot, just flat on its back. But it broke. I work overseas and have had some problems finding a case for it. I love the phone, but I'm not sure how bad the crack is going to be. If it keep growing I suppose it could destroy the back of the phone leading to other bad things happening.

    I don't think the back is made from the same stuff as the front. The front seems a lot tougher. The back reminds me of sheets of safety glass from the 1960s.... anybody else remember that stuff?

    This phone is cool, but not nearly tough enough for real world use.

    It ain't "high school teacher" tough anyway..... maybe it's fine for elementary...
