It's not as delicate as the media makes it out to be, but it's still not for someone who is clumsy. It does require a bit more concious gentleness and awareness of your surroundings.
I've had mine a few weeks and I absolutely love it. I can definitely see the fact that it can easily be damaged but I'm always careful with my phones and it's also insured. I'm glad I made the decision to get one.
