> Cheap plastic won't do.

I have never doubted that my Android phones are tougher than iPhones. I drop my Galaxy Nexus constantly on concrete without issue. Every single one of my family members has broken an iPhone screen in the last year, year and a half.

It's the feel, not the toughness when people constantly drop them.

That said, the glass back panel on iPhone 4 was easy to break. The solid metal iPhone 5 not so much.
