    Default Truth about Gorilla Glass!


    Saw this video on youtube and I learned a lot about gorilla glass and what you need for the Nexus 4 if you apply that knowledge.

    Yeah, it is a pretty old video but I was just introduced into the android field (and gorilla glass since iPhone doesn't use it) so I have a lot to watch and learn ^ ^

    As far as I am aware the iPhone does use Gorilla Glass and always has. Apple and Corning just don't advertise it as such. Apple wants the impression of the iPhone to be all Apple.

    Tim Cook, and I believe even Steve Jobs have both actually said they use gorilla glass. It was in reference to Apple products being made in the states, when they said the glass was made by Corning in Kentucky.

    Great video! I normally do not use screen protectors because I hate the way they feel and I feel like they make then screen look worse. Does anyone know of with these glass screen protectors if they feel like the plastic ones?

    Well I think (just basing off the video) the feel of the corning gorilla glass comes from the film that she was talking about and if you don't have that on a screen protector then it won't feel the same.

    The Spigen screen protectors are made of the same materials as Gorilla glass so they apparently feel the same.

    I believe Apple uses a real glass that is chemical treated (not synthetic like GG) and has an antismudge coating, called. ....oleophobic or something like that. Iphone glass shatters much easier than other phones from what I've seen

    I think Steve Jobs and Cook know, or in Jobs case knew, more about it than you. Don't know if the 5 uses 1 or 2 but they all use GG.

    Edit:

    Here http://www.idownloadblog.com/2012/06...-willow-glass/

    Article is about new willow glass but goes on to talk about the start of the iPhone and GG.

    If not for Jobs might have had to wait a bit longer before GG became widely used or produced. Corning already had the idea and technique for GG all on their own but Jobs pushed them to get mass manufacturing up and running sooner. Jobs did his usual "Do it now" thing despite what timelines he was told were required. Supplier lists are often not complete.

    Hmm, never knew they used gorilla glass. Well I found that the glass is quite durable to scratches and everything and i'm 100% sure that they didn't use gorilla glass on the ipod touch 4 so it might be just iphone or new generations

    I think it was only on the 4S. Maybe the 4 but I don't think the ipods have had it.

    I left my palm pilot on the roof of my car years ago. I drove about a mile and I saw it fly off the roof. I pulled over on the freeway and ran back for it. It was in a leather case and worked perfectly.

    Last time I was soooooo stupid.

    After some extra searches I'm lead to believe that Apple does use Corning's glassware, I assume Gorilla Glass.

    I had a few Palm Pilots. Great devices when they worked. I hated Palm support, though, and was sad to hear HP bought them as I was praying for a crash and burn for the company. If the device failed those f#$%^#$ would charge nearly the price of a new device for a refurbished one and a refurbished one was very likely to fail. Their support was like Omnipoint's, many moons before they became T-Mobile.

    Yeah I think that last one was just for fun Fairclough lol. The only time i've dropped my phone is putting it into my pocket and missing and dropping it while use. Pretty common but hey, that's why i have a case.

    Agreed to the missing the pocket but... falling off you lap while standing up is silly. Hey if i had enough test screens i would do stupid stuff too.
