Why do iphones have weak ass glass screens?

I am constantly amazed by the number of people I see walking around using iphones with cracked screens.  If I had to guess, I'd estimated that roughly 20-30% of all iphone's currently in use are at least slightly broken.  And while I'm impressed that they are still able to function just fine with giant gashes across them, what is the point?

I don't drop my droid phone that often, but when I do the screen doesn't shatter; because it's made of plastic.  As far as I know my tough plastic screen is still perfectly capable, and just as functional as it's flimsy and brittle glass competition.  So what am I missing here?  Why doesn't Apple just make the switch?  That and eliminate the stupid automatic "reply all" setting that causes me to get tons of irrelevant messages from numbers I don't know all day long whenever a friend of mine with an iphone sends out a group text.

Also I realize this title is kind of pushing my boundaries for vulgarity/professionalism, but I had to do it because I think it adds about 50% of this post's entertainment value.
