I see a problem. And while one way people (even teenage girls) learn to take better things is by having to live without them they've broken, I don't know that I'd want to scrape together my savings to buy something with the hope that this isn't the device that ultimately teaches that lesson (or gamble on something else teaching that lesson first).mmmmmdonuts21 wrote:With all that being said, I also would like it fairly durable if at all possible. My sister is the devil to electronics and don't seem to last more than a year or two in her possession. (she has gotten better though).
