Re: ???
Pedro,

Compacting more electronics and more functionality in today's devices is something that for years people asked for.

Try to not fall into the current trap that seems to be around: People are unhappy no matter what it is and complain for absolutely everything that technology is bringing today.

People complain even about the devices that have never seen, like the Apple Watch. How they can complain and criticize something they have never seen is inexplicable to me. :/

zaious, 

Yes, there is something about finding that "equilibrum."It also depends of different factors. People are driven by different motivations.

SachinEE, 

If not really a manufacturers problem if people don't take care of their belongings, especially when they are expensive. Can you have a delicate glass product and treat it as if it were made of steel? No, right?

Well, in the same way you can't treat your phones and iPads as if they were a made of plastic, or iron. Materials have limitations and no one can do anything about that. The same with the electronics part, not only the screens.

Don't blame Apple if you let your iPhone fall. Try to be more careful, instead. :) Wouldn't that be something you would tell a child?

@ Sachin EE.  you are right, if people aren't going to take care of their devices, then don't get apple products.  I'm just very surprise to see people using their crack iphones and ipads.  I can't imagine why they don't fix it or take better care of them.  In that case, the phones prior to smartphones were better in terms of being sturdy.  They didn't have that many functionalities but they could take a real beating.

To buy one or not to
We saw discussions about the prices and the servecs. However, there was a tendency at the beginning years to get the lastest one even if your old ones is not an ancient model. But, I believe most people have got to their 'equilibirum' point. If I bought an iPand in 2013, I would not jump (or try to) buy an iPad. If mine were from 2012, I might give it a thought. 

But, 'I need to have the latest' this is not a fad anymore (very few can afford it).

@pedrogonzales: Apple products are overpriced. However the services they give are unparalleled. People should consider their ability to take care of products before buying Apple products, because every one of them cost a ton and would make anybody a care freak.

Re: ???
Most people do not take care of their belongings and that includes fumbling or juggling of delicate products, however, companies can lessen some of the blame by making products more hardy. For example, my Lumia 920 fell screen first on the ground and still not a single scratch whereas if I had to compare, my iPhone 5S broke instantly falling from the same height (results during a drop test). I am not blaming Apple, because I am aware of the fact that products are different and forces may be different, but what I am asking is to make screens more sturdy.

Pedro, one more thing. I wonder if those people blame the car manufacturer for not making anti-crash cars when they go crashing their car.

Re: ???
Pedro, 

"If i had a $600 tablet, I would take care of it as if it was a baby."

Exactly. You don't go being careless with an expensive device so you brake it and then go on blaming the company because you did crash the screen.

I can't imagine what those people you saw with iPads with broken screens did to them. It's certainly not Apple's fault.

You are right. I really can't imagine what people do with their ipads.  They really look as if they went through a lot.   If i had a $600 tablet, I would take care of it as if it was a baby.
