So very true...thats what they do...just to be famous..I hate when originality is a miss in anything...what's the Use and fun if it is not original....:(
almost scratch proof? YES
more brittle and susceptible to shattering when dropped?
harlekkin, 20 Jul 2014It will shatter the same way. Sorry to ruin the surprise for ya. Seriously, what a dumb comment? Maybe or maybe not. But you've got to prove what you said. Seriously, what a dumb answer?
Apple - quick to quick make a phone with a sapphire crystal glass, but not so quick to change an OS with key features missing and allowing iOS 8 to be just "another" update.
But you watch, the Apple adverts will be that glamourous white background with a deep voice narrating how wonderful the iPhone is, then Apple will sell the iPhone 6 for about £600 and people will camp outside the Apple store to get their hands on the new iPhone, when they come out of the store the staff will be high fiving the customers at paying so much money for their incredible sapphire glass product......
I am so glad I am not part of the Apple ecosystem anymore! I would rather pay a little less for a phone with much more to give.
guys need another awesome called Dragon tail is coming to market its way too much harder than any glass....it is debut on lava iris 305 q+
anything even it has small percentage of shattering will broke into pieces if they test like that. if dont want to shatter like that, make the screen with the toughest element on earth. anyway, many people dont do like the test on regular basis on any smartphones.
I learnt over the years that change is hard, in the process is messy but in the end it allures or attracts. After the release of iphone 6 many mobile companies will go for sapphire screen. As we are talking 64 bit has drawn much debate at the boardroom to many companies for 2015. iPhone my second religion
Tornado Red R32, 20 Jul 2014Look up "bill of materials" for any iPhone.It costs Apple something like an extra $5... moreA book cost less then 10$ to make. Why the hell are the authors charging over 250$ for a book??! Yet people still buy.
If you can understand the above.. then maybe.. you can understand why iPhone is charge the way it is.
man2321, 20 Jul 2014Better buy Corning Gorilla 3 devices. By the way, i will love to see the same test with Cornin... moreIt will shatter the same way. Sorry to ruin the surprise for ya. Seriously, what a dumb comment?
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2014Where did you get that 10x the market price info?Look up "bill of materials" for any iPhone.It costs Apple something like an extra $5 to double the amount of storage memory,how much extra do they charge the customer for this?

This is a gimmick. Apple used a sapphire coating on the camera lens and home button.
Also, they've been coating their memory chips in sapphire since the original iphone.
How else can they justify charging 10x the market price for their memory chips? Hahahaha.
I needed this info as i am always using my iphone for archery practice. NAT! YOLO MATE
