The last generations of Gorilla Glass had a focus on resistance against scratches and scrapes, but, as we all know, in no way mitigated the damage caused by a fall. From what it looks like Corning is ready to change this scenario with the launch of the fourth generation of Gorilla Glass.
According to the company, hundreds of devices that suffered some kind of fall and had their screens broken were analyzed. The study resulted in something we know well (say the Moto G and E drop test), about 70% of the screens that were equipped with the third generation of Gorilla Glass, were 100% damaged. With the new protection the company guarantees 80% resistance in several types of falls, up to 1 meter in height.
Gorilla Glass is not yet an unbreakable glass, but, now with 80% resistance to falls, we can have greater security in ordinary falls, and on rougher surfaces. In any case, we at AndroidPIT are ready to test the resistance of the new protection.
So, did any device’s screen break even though it had Gorilla Glass? Leave your answer in the comments below.
