    Default Galaxy s4 to have unbreakable glass!

    According to Sammobile the galaxy s4 is apparently meant to have unbreakable glass, im not sure whether this means the device will be heavier, more or less responsive. We can only find out.

    The galaxy s4 is set to release/announced between February and May 2013!

    If it is bullet proof, then functionality of seeing through walls not as effective.

    It may very well have unbreakable glass.... however, I am reading a lot about this bendable displays Samsung is apparently going to use.

    I don't see the point. I mean, we can make the display as flexible as we want.... but the battery won't be flexible. Neither will the body. Or the circuit board. Or the processor. Or the RAM. Or the camera. Or.... anything else.

    Right? Or did I miss a bunch of "bendable" announcements?!

    I think it means if you sit on it or lean on it the screen will bend slightly and will stop it from breaking but the internals won't be affected'

    I think it comes down to being more careful with your device. In the few years I've had Android phones I've never had a busted screen. Yes before you call bull.... I have 5 little kids that toss, throw, drop and fight over my phones daily to play Angry Birds or whatever.. No screen protectors, no cases..

    I've had battery covers fly off and batteries eject, removable sdcards pop out but still... running naked and all is good.

    That is called "luck." I had a person that told me they just nicked it with their seatbelt and the whole screen cracked. You can drop your phone a thousand times, but it takes that ONE time that it hits just right (more likely to happen than you think) for the phone to be completely broken, or the screen to be completely cracked. I have a screen protector on mine, no case since I like the way my phone looks.

    I have not broken a phone in 5 years, and the one I did break was not a smartphone, it was a little flip phone I had a while back. Even so, I always carry insurance on the device because I know that it could take that ONE time for me to just break it and have to spend $500+ dollars on the new device.

    I'm sure that the body of the phone will be made of bendable plastic too like the back of the note 2 (I think?). So even though the battery and the components inside won't be flexible it will still mean that the phone won't be as rigid, which will make it less prone to breakage. Even if the glass has the tiniest bit of room to flex it would reduce the chance of breakage tremendously.

    Might not sound like it makes a difference but if at the molecular level, the molecules in the glass have a chance to move and conform with the energy of a fall to the ground, or like another user said someone sitting on the phone. It will suffer much then damage than something that is in one rigid piece...

    At least that's how I see it. Hope that made sense.

    Really? Are you female? You "Like the way your phone looks" so you are willing to give up the protection of a case? You can't find a case you think looks good? The first thing I did when I got my Galaxy S3 was buy and Otterbox Defender for it. THAT is my insurance policy!

    It wasn't meant as an insult. it was meant as more of a cliche. ie. What kind of car do you want to buy. " A Pink one "

    +1 why make thin sexy phones just to put a big fat case on? You break it, pay the premium, get it fixed.

    I will believe it when I see it. If it truly is then I will buy one just to tear the phone apart. I have repair a good amount of phones and Samsung would be idiots to make the glass unbreakable because then they will stop making money. No one will want a phone that doesn't have that type of glass on it. It is a lose lose situation for all parties involved.

    You must have because Samsung announced their new "Youm" glass at CES. The can wrap this glass and curve it to let you see the screen from the side etc. It's not so much for making the phone bendy but allows you to shape the display.

    If the glass is proprietary, they could make up their loss in the repair market with supplying their glass to other manufacturers

    Not necessarily. If its unbreakable then the repair world will not make money. The repair companies won't be able to make profit, which would bring unemployment and economic loss in all aspects of the world.

    Honestly, if you're in the repair business, you have to see the writing on the wall at some point. Consumers don't like their devices breaking and needing repair, so less breakable devices should sell better. Assuming that to be the case, your scenario would be accurate, assuming that those affected choose not to see what's coming down the pipeline and prepare for it

    I love my phone naked... cases make it bulky, and usually more difficult to take out of pocket. The hell with those grandpa hip holster things too haha. I break screens often, then replace the screen. If a phone is made with a bendy screen that is unbreakable count me in!

    Nobody likes to repair phones. The quality is usually pretty crappy after the repair is done.

    bogus! broken glass is probably the biggest reason why people need to spend money again for a new phone, i don't believe they will cut in their own fingers with this!

    I doubt it will have "unbreakable glass", that would mean the use of flexible display technology. Which by the way contains no glass so I find that description funny.

    Flexible displays will probably come out at the end of this year or beginning of next.
