What a bunch of BULL... so they compare ALL of the android phones out there and say that the iOS is better because it breaks less...
No wonder... they are comparing a range of phones with diverse price points and quality with 1 of the most expensive phones in the market (the iPhone)... no wonder that the iPhone comes out as the winner...

why don't they bin the data into price points??!! I personally have a Samsung galaxy S2 and before that I had a HTC hero... both of which I could bet would beat the iPhone in terms of durability... I lost count of how many times I dropped my phones on hard floors and never broke the screens... even last week I let my Galaxy hit hard concrete floor and the only think I got was a small scratch on the top corner of the phone... Try to do that with any iPhone and see what happens!

Beside the "compare-a-wide-range-with-one-expensive-phone-problem" (where you made an excellent point in my opinion), i wonder how the iPhone percentage would be if there weren't a antenna problem which "motivated" the customers to protect the device in a (free) bumper. Without it seem to be quite sure that the glas cover of the iPhone bursts when dropped...
 
Quite right... I really like apple products and have a Mac book laptop and several iPods but lately I think apple has become envious of the success of the Android platform and all you see in these apple centric websites is just things trying to proof iPhones are better than Android phones
 
The influence of price is only one flaw in this statistic. I would suspect that the operating system is not the most significant factor correlated to breakage. Price is one other factor, but in order to determine a significant influence of the operating system, you'd have to eliminate the influence of vendor and model first. Which may be more significant.
 
I think we should run a clustering algorithm on the data ( k-means maybe?) .... no no wait better a principle components analysis hehehe
