Saurav Ghosh, 23 May 2014I was wrong, however that's why I said, I guess! A pro tip from an amateur iPhone user, no ... moreHaha, sorry, but I was just refering to your writing about something without checking it first- you can replace the 5s with S5, One or G2 and I will say the same. Oh, and if case you still do not believe- I own an iPhone 5 and a Galaxy s3, talk about i life, lol
So, both Samsung and LG looked at sapphire displays last year before Apple? That's sounds about right as both companies specialize in and manufacture display technology.
Apple, on the other hand, copied their move and decided to move forward with it. Typical. Haste makes waste.
Anyway, I'd take Gorilla Glass 3 on a beast of a phone over a mediocre device with a sapphire display any day of the week.
Good riddance to Steve Jobs. Everyone that you worked with in the past still hates you. No one misses you, thief.
Kyembe, 23 May 2014Copying copying copying copying, always copying....apple copied the fingerprint sensor from motorola, the sapphire glass on their iphones existed already on many vertu smartphones so technically apple is the one who copies
armen1978, 23 May 2014You both are big companies. Why you are copying other companies. First Samsung copied Sony in ... moreusing a sapphire glass display on phone is not copying because if it is then apple copied vertu
Saurav Ghosh, 23 May 2014Thanks. I didn't know that. However I always believed GG itself is pretty strong. As M8, M7 al... moreI clearly said one of the most durable, not most durable.
http://youtu.be/36U-hOhTNIw iphone 5 vs galaxy s3 extreme drop test
Here iPhone does very very good job, of course it breaks in the end because its the whole point of drop test videos, but any phone cant survive that last throw :)
It seems that the stupid era of corning gorilla glass has finished, because corning glass is easly breakable and scratchable
I read it was heavyer cost more and is more environmentally bad, and that it only better on scratches but breaks easier. Is it true?
I don't understand why do people keep saying Samsung copied this and Samsung copied that it is the same thing as saying every phone with camera copied the manufacturer first released a phone with a camera and every manufacturer copied the first phone with touchscreen. As long as it's useful it doesn't matter who "copied" who to me.
karrol, 23 May 2014No, it doesn't use sapphire glas. Pro-tip for future: read the article + apply some understand... moreI was wrong, however that's why I said, I guess!
A pro tip from an amateur iPhone user, no thanks, I will pass.
A tip from me : Get out of your i life, then you will see the rest of the world.
Duel, 23 May 2014"iPhone 5S is one of fragile most device I've ever seen, and that uses sapphire I think? ... moreThanks. I didn't know that. However I always believed GG itself is pretty strong. As M8, M7 also use it and look how they are build. It's how the glass has been put into a phone's chassis that matters for the durability factor, IMHO.
But I totally disagree with the saying that iPhone 5S is most durable, cause they are listed under top 5 most fragile devices, along with other Samsung's like S4, Note 2 etc, and also haven't seen a drop test video where iP has survived.
technology is not any body's father's property. all are free to use it and give the best for the consumers. when you are in the market, learn to compete not live on law suites. if you are a smart inventor, keep inventing new and make a name for yourself and not cry over other's coppying your invention. i'm sick of this game.
Noone would spend so much money on such phones and wouldnt put a good shield on it, so saphire coating is a waste of money. They could provide as accessories, good quality screen shields instead, which are user replaceable and far more practical. Phones are not timepieces or camera lenses. LG and Samsung shouldnt waste money on researching Apple's non useful marketing ideas.
