The original was by far the best. Every new generation of GG is just a bigger piece of scratch-prone crap.
Predictive memorys, 20 Jul 2018Foldable smartphone are coming next year, the Gorilla Glass 6 can't flexing bend fold, looks l... moreLol. So.. you are waiting for King Samsung next innovation?
Too bad.. sony will follow it 10 years later (if they can survive for atleast 10 years, but i highly doubt it)
corning gorilla glass 3 is the most scratch resistant glass as amateurly(through youtube) reported by long term users of gorilla glass 3 phones, who have bought phones with later versions of gorilla glass. thinner and more flexible newer glass gets micro scratched easily.
there is a trade off between either scratch resistant (hard and brittle) or crack resistant(soft and flexible).
personally would buy c g g 3 phone with flat glass then c g g 5 phone with 2.5D(it is not scientifically accurate, it's a marketing term for-) " curved and raised out of phone's frame" glass.
But those are gone,(even on the new nokia(s)) just like user removable battery.
Glass is glass unless is created from pure diamont or even the strongest material it will breaks like nothing.
Thus have Moto X4 with shatterproof display which is much more resistant than gorrilla glass.
You can have even gorrilla glass of 100 and Scamsung curved screen break on 1 hit from 0,5M drop at edge of the phone.
And 500 for repairs also Samsung way.
But is good to know that manufacturing price of a curved glass on S9+ is 14 euros.
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2018Because I don't break my screen, but I have to look at it. Foldable smartphone are coming next year, the Gorilla Glass 6 can't flexing bend fold, looks like the foldable will be less protected than usual smartphone.
Companies be like: Yay! Gorilla glass 6 is here.. that means Gorilla glass 5 is cheaper.. let's buy G glass 4 .. *Orders Gorilla glass 3*
All good for the more shatter resistance until phone manufacturers opt to put thinner ver of gg6 to make their phone thinner
How much this GG6 crap will cost us?
Josh, 19 Jul 2018Gorilla glass 3 still more scratch proof than Gorilla glass 5! I would rather have a more scra... moreThat’s why LG opted to use CG3 for the front of the G6, but used the CG5 on the back of the phone. That was a really wise decision. Am still amazed mire companies didn’t think it was. Btw, CG5 is just a little better in terms of shatter really, if even it is at all, they all break pretty easy anyways.
Can Gorilla Glass 6 bendable or flexible? So when flexible smartphone come out in 2019 everyone can put it on.
What is a scratch to a cracked screen? Some people can be dumb though. Like why would anyone complain more about scratches than a broken screen?
The MAIN question for this article: Is Gorilla Glass 6 able to bend that easily with the materials used in smartphones nowadays?
What about clarity?
AnonD-454049, 19 Jul 2018Is it better than htc ultra's sapphire screen?Yes. ALON (Aluminum oxynitride) is more scratch-resistant and more shatter-resistant than HTC Sapphire-glass.
In fact, ALON is the preferred material for bullet-proof windows and windshields as it is lighter, thinner and clearer than laminated-glass while still providing better protection.
AnonD-454049, 19 Jul 2018Is it better than htc ultra's sapphire screen?Sapphire is also used on watches. They say it's hard to scratch but easy to shatter. So, for a phone, I'd still rather have Gorilla Glass.
that`s good to hear. but its still made of glass so it made to be broken like promises :D peace
Introducing! Corning Gorilla Glass X, Only Harambe can break it.
Definitely a very good news! Hopefully we'll see it on the Note 9 and so on.
