Why don't phones use unbreakable screens? Is it a cost thing?

You know it has to be transparent stuff, right?
There are pasticky screens that don't break easily, but they scratch beautifully, attract dirt, oil and scoff marks...
And yes: cost and resource/supply problems. Plus: the idiotic trend to try and have the thinnest or whatever doesn't help.

There's no such thing as an unbreakable screen. Even if a company invented an unbreakable screen some silly idiot would end up dropping their phone and the screen would break somehow.

I don't think there will be phone with unbreakable screen while glass is used. Reading glasses do not use glass, they have polycarbonate plastics. Problem with polycarbonate is that it scratches much easier than glass.
