    Corning responds to video that shows Gorilla Glass 5 on Galaxy Note 7 getting scratched easily - SamMobile

    Interesting read, not sure how much is just PR, but it sounds like there's more to look at.

    Cliff's notes...at 3&4, the screen wasn't scratched...the glass is so hard, the spike actually left material on the screen.

    It's actually true. I minored in geology in college and I used to do scratch tests all the time and items with less hardness would leave residue on items with higher hardness. And it just makes sense. A tool with a hardness of 3 will never scratch glass with a hardness of 5.

    I'm glad Corning came out and cut through the BS.

    JerryRig needs to make a second test and prove if they are indeed scratches.

    He needs to understand the Mohs scale of hardness first before making more videos.

    Well that makes me feel better about not using a screen protector.

    What is, is? Gimmie a break, if there was transference from the softer material, why can't it be wiped off? Bottom line, if my screen looks scratched and I can't wipe away what looks like a scratch, then it might as well be a scratched.

    Bottom line though is the glass is not being damaged. However, removing metal transfer isn't easy and won't just wipe off with soft cloth. It requires certain cleaners and or acids to do so.

    Unless you plan on doing what he did to the screen, what are you worried about?

    This makes me feel better. Only because if I can't find a decent screen protector then hopefully I'll be ok
