    What ever glass they have on the S7 and S7 edge is pretty soft and scratches real easy. I call it Baby Glass.

    Gorilla Glass 5 is nothing more than marketing fluff at it's best.

    Yeah the trade off for plastic is AWFUL screen quality. I would rather just get a good case than have a screen that looks like crap lol.
    Of course there is shatterproof phones! My Galaxy S7 Active has a beautiful glass screen that is shatterproof because of the polycarbonate layer that was added above it that you can't even notice is on there.
    Well, why don't they make their screens shatter-proof? Hard to believe that with all the hi-faluting technology we find on phones today shatter-proof glass is not one of the items we find.

    I believe they added that to help but I don't remember them saying shatterproof like the Droid. That's the difference in screen quality of a real shatterproof phone.

    From Samsung's own description:

    Engineered to be shatter-resistant, the Galaxy S7 active gives you extra protection, making the occasional fumble, stumble or drop nothing to worry about. https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=Hs8XLxH0

    It doesn't get anymore shatter resistant, basically shatterproof:

    It survived multiple drops from varied heights and even a 400 foot drop!

    And 50 drops straight onto concrete here.

    The day we get sapphire screens will be nice. I have banged my sapphire watch crystals so many times I have lost count. Nary a scratch.

    Downside... very expensive material.

    One can hope!
    Actually, while sapphire watch crystals are more scratch resistant than mineral crystals, sapphire crystals will shatter more easily. I am curious about GG5, because although they mention it is less likely to break, I haven't heard anything about GG5 scratch resistance. In that regard GG3 was better than GG4.

    I never understand people flipping out over shattered glass. It's glass, it can break. Until a company labels and makes it shatterproof, it's gonna happen.
    Right on i can never understand it either it isn't a surprise that it is glass so expect it

    People just "testing" (I.e. abusing) display models. It's normal.
