How often does your phone or tablet take a nasty fall? As a mom of three little boys who is frequently multitasking (often with the phone in my hand), someone who may happen to be a little clumsy in her own right, and a frequent traveler, my devices certainly take a beating!! And, no one wants to hear the shattering of glass when that phone slips out of your hand! So, Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 is something you should know about! The Corning Incorporated team of scientists have designed Gorilla Glass 4 to deliver dramatically improved performance against drops on rough surfaces helping to protect our favorite devices like our smartphones. In fact, in laboratory tests Gorilla Glass 4 survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high, and was up to 2x tougher than competitive glass designs.
That sounds like what I want on my device to help protect it from falls when those 3 little guys in my house accidentally drop it! And, there’s always those times when we’re hiking or traveling and fumbling with the phone to get family selfies like the one below! If fact, I’ve dropped my phone a few times while we’re out hiking. Eek! In this line of work, my phone & devices are rather essential. Plus there are all my “mom duties” like staying on top of phone calls, activities, appointments, and documenting family memories (by taking SO many photos). So, shattering my phone screen isn’t really something that would work well for me. Having a device with Gorilla Glass 4 would probably be a good thing!
Gorilla Glass has actually been used on more than 3 billion devices from 40 major brands! So, is it on yours?
Curious about how Gorilla Glass holds up to its competitors in testing? Here’s a look:
It definitely looks like Gorilla Glass 4 is better able to withstand damage from drops!! So, the next time you’re in the market for a phone, tablet, or notebook computer, you might want to double check what kind of glass it’s made from!
