Hm, what glass can survive diamond's or sapphire's scratch? It is just the chemistry, some jewelry will always be stronger than the glass:))) But the efforts like Gorilla are good:) saves from keys and stuff like metal probably (I hope so - don't have any gorilla cover screen having phone, but planing on having so, I do hope :D )
Samsung would put this glass on some phones, then quietly change it on it's variants, just as how they shipped less powerful versions of their SGS2 without most customers knowing.
If you get a Samsung, make sure you know exactly what you're getting.
i hate samsung
first place a Plastic Body
second a crappy glass...
So im not trust this brand till now..,:-(
AnonD-34433, 04 Feb 2012The reason why we need that Gorilla Glass because to avoid mark scratch like other screen of p... moremy gf's brand new galaxy note already has a deep scratch on it about 1 cm long . No ideea how it got there . She never dropped the phone . Just held it in her pocket.
and its suposed to be gorilla glass on it
ADB Symbian gr, 04 Feb 2012WHAAAT..!!!
How old are you..?? Have you ever "touch" Symbian after S60v5..? I don'... more Whaaat!
Sony or moto before sam? I know they are good and have been improved alot by imitating samsung since 2010 but not up to sammy yet! So right now you might be kidding me.lol could you mention any of theirs handset can compete with early 2011 model SGS II till now? Again SGS III is ahead:P no one remember others flagship ,do you?
I know you are also planned to grabb one sgs iii silently:D
Do me one favour ,stop comparing symbian with mighty android!
AnonD-16334, 04 Feb 2012Agreed! If Samsung wouldn't have done this major changes to the smartphone world Nokia will st... moreWHAAAT..!!!
How old are you..?? Have you ever "touch" Symbian after S60v5..? I don't think so..
If you own a mid-Android phone you must do it.. Symbian runs smooth even with 680mhz (even Belle).. Can your OS run smooth with that? Yeah, i don't think so.. What about battery..?
Maybe your hate about Nokia makes you don't think.. And for the end i can say for sure that if someone want to buy Android phone must check the new MOTOROLA and Sony..
Way better than Samsung..
AnonD-26870, 04 Feb 2012Probably not. As for now Samsung stated Tizen devices will be midrange phones.Where'd you hear that? I'd like to see the article or video conference where that was stated.
lol, 03 Feb 2012can someoen explain why we're still using glass instead of clear plastic ? i'd rather have 5-1... moreWe use glass instead of plastic for several reasons (which are fairly evident if you've ever used a phone with a plastic touchscreen).
1. It is much much harder, so unlike plastic, it won't scratch.
2. It feels nicer; much easier to slide your finger across it.
3. It looks nicer.
cpw-1625, 04 Feb 2012i want to know when they will upgrade the amo led plus to have 3 sub pixles per pixle. im not ... moreamoled+ already has 3 subpixels.. its onl the non+ which has two.. i presume that u need 4 (incl a white for lumens) as though the existib\ng 3 is not sufficient for our tiny smartphone screens :D
very good information thanks gsmarena
i want to know when they will upgrade the amo led plus to have 3 sub pixles per pixle. im not that fussed about the glass. im happy with the glass on my s2 but it could be clearer with more sub pixles. it would incease the quality of the screen by 1/3rd!
lol, 03 Feb 2012can someoen explain why we're still using glass instead of clear plastic ? i'd rather have 5-1... morebecause plastic is very easy to scratch. you don't have to thow your phone at the wall or concrete. for me glass is superior to plastic.
All that Samsung needs to do is to improve their boring phone designs.
very good.that's why I'm samsung user.
Dave, 03 Feb 2012ExecellentExcellent.
lol, 03 Feb 2012can someoen explain why we're still using glass instead of clear plastic ? i'd rather have 5-1... morethe fact that plastic gets scratched alot easier is the first think i can think of.
lol, 03 Feb 2012can someoen explain why we're still using glass instead of clear plastic ? i'd rather have 5-1... moreIf use clear plastic instead of glass, backlight loss is quite tiny. Mechanical-wise, plastic is always with less tensile strength than glass.
To apply as touch cover material, means the deformation of plastic must bigger than the one using glass. Big deformation brings poor accuracy & linearity to touch performance.
That's why high-end phone use glass but not plastic..

I (the the rest of the world who are using Gorilla) experienced the strength of the glass. I've dropped and shattered several phones and those that had Gorilla glass only got scratches on the corners and broken covers but the screen was untouched! It's as nothing could break the glass! No way I could use a screen protector on a Gorilla glass. It feels so smooth and good when you touch it and you are always sure that nothing will happen to the screen.
