    Gorilla Glass 4 is great, but still don't wipe it in a dusty atmosphere with a dry tissue - it's not as hard as the corundum particles in the air (they're small enough that they go through most filters, and so light that air resistance keeps them from falling) and they can leave long, deep, very narrow scratches. (And it's the very narrow ones - the ones that are only few wavelengths of light wide, that are the most annoying.) Either use a lens tissue dampened (not wet) with lens cleaner or use a plastic (or tempered glass, if you prefer) protector. It's cheaper replacing a 3 for $5 plastic protector than having the glass on the phone replaced. A LOT cheaper.

    It also won't protect the phone if you drop it so that the shock is through the cleavage plane of the glass, even if it's a small drop. That's what TPU cases with silicone liners are for.

    It's a typo. The Note 4 has Gorilla Glass 3....Read this....

    It's official: the Galaxy Alpha is the first device with Gorilla Glass 4

    Not a typo. The Alpha was the first, just not the last. The Note 4 is still listed on the Corning site as having GG 4.

    There is another whole thread with numerous links supporting G4 as well. I saw the G3 reference before all those came out.

    Not a typo. The Alpha was the first, just not the last. The Note 4 is still listed on the Corning site as having GG 4.

    It. is. not. G4. on. the. N4. At time of production of the N4, G4 wasn't ready for implementation so the G3 was used. The G4 was ready for the Alpha....hence it's the first....

    Maybe the new N4 with the 810 SoC that might be released only in Korea will have G4......but not ours.

    My reply had nothing to do with the G4...or screen protectors.... but rather the technical details that only a physicist could understand! Meant to be more of a joke....

    True, I don't know the technical details...but I know enough to 'get' it now that you say it...but you should be happy it also worked on the level of a succinct comment about the level of overkill in the post. And if any of what was said was correct I guess my real world example is my own response (which I was going to say separately anyhow.

    So if this GG4 listing by Corning is only for future N4's, why would they list it now as GG4?

    If it's listed on the site, how can you dispute it?

    The Alpha was the first to have it, which launched in September, the Note 4 came out in October. And as already pointed out, Corning's own site says the Note 4 has GG4.

    Here is a Google link. Some sites say it has GG4. Some sites say it has GG3. Form your own opinion but just because the Alpha has it doesn't mean in any way the N4 does.
