"Fragile"? I wouldn't say so...
But as stated and above, you can always buy a case.

Have a Gel case and a screen protector on XPERIA C1905.
Mother uses it and a 1 metre drop onto a concrete door step and nothing happen.

[Update]

Lately I've gone big on TPU and Gel covers as I've found hard covers (old style plastic ones I've had for other phones) have a poor fit.
Hard covers will still protect the phone, but may not absorb impacts in the same way.

Thanks for ur valuable commnts. I already bought a hard back cover, would it be enough?

I wonder why sony did not mention anything about its glass apart from being scratch resistance. Xperia L's got a schott glass which is pretty awesome and I thought M have similar glass. Too bad I was wrong.
Give thanks if my post was usefull.

I agree but I saw a video where the user was trying to break/scratch the glass of xperia L with a screwdriver, but was unable to do so. Tht's why I thought it was awesome.

Anyway thanks.
