    Note 7 Gorilla Glass-gg5.jpg

    At the T-Mobile store I saw this on display. So much for gorilla glass 5.

    Well, they did say it could survive drops 80% of the time.

    So there's a 20% chance that it would crack.

    looks like it hit a hard object at an angle which caused the force of impact to focus on a small area.

    I wouldn't trust a display model to judge on lol. Imagine people who went in and saw bent iPhones in the Apple store due to people ...

    Just because something is labeled as being stronger doesn't mean it is shatterproof. If Samsung said shatterproof than yes hold them to it but they didn't so .. o_O

    No, I just assumed they dropped it while putting them out. Before putting it on display, one of the guys let me take a look at it while pre-ordering

    So, there are chances of bad quality.

    People are rough as hell with demos. And kids... I have seen kids grab them by the retractable lanyard and let phones go as they wound up and crashed against the table they sit at. They're extra abused.

    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.

    I just think they shouldn't put it on display on launch day for people to see.

    You mean like the Droid x force? Buy that, guaranteed screen won't break. Of course it's plastic.

    Exactly, but I wouldn't want a plastic screen. I'll just trust myself not to drop my phone.

    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.

    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.

    Well those were my famous last words with my Note4. I won't carry mine around naked again.

    I take what Corning says about their Gorilla Glass with a grain of salt. Sometimes I think GG 3 was stronger. They may bring new versions out and it may surpass the previous in one metric but maybe worse in another. Say it can scratch easier or it's thinner than previous

    It would seem that Scottie needs to beam down and give Samsung the formula for transparent aluminum.

    Sure... The Moto z force offers a shatterproof screen... If it is a must have for you


    Most would prefer a glass screen though which is what Samsung is providing

    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!

    If you think so there are many other models without then such as older notes or the S7 .
