Just curious about how CG5 on s7 compares to the Moto shatter shield when it comes to pressure and resistance to drops!

Re: Corning Glass 5 Vs Moto shatter shield

"If", these sites are to be believed, it is Gorilla Glass 4 on the Global, octa core, G935F, model..

SAMSUNG G935F Galaxy S7 Edge specs - HardReset.info

Samsung SM-G935F Galaxy S7 Edge LTE-A (Samsung Hero 2) Detailed Specs | Technical Datasheet | PDAdb.net

Whilst GSMArena states, "Corning Gorilla Glass (unspecified version)", whatever that means!

Verizon's own spec's for the S7 Edge, G935V, and S7, G930V, appear not even mention Gorilla Glass.

Likewise with AT&T for the S7, G930A, or the S7 Edge, G935A.

Whilst Corning do not mention either Gorilla Glass 5 or the Galaxy S7/Edge on their site, here.

This is deja vue for me when, on the Galaxy S4, it was discovered and confirmed by Samsung and Corning's, that Gorilla Glass 3 was not used on all models, (some were U.S. carrier models), to save money for the carriers. Gorilla Glass 3 not on all Galaxy S4's!!!. Who knew then that Samsung changed hardware spec's if required by carriers. for their own models!

(TOP TIP: Do not rely on 3rd party ad's/reviews for correct spec' information. They were wrong before. Unless either Samsung or your carrier directly confirm a spec, treat it with suspicion.)

Re: Corning Glass 5 Vs Moto shatter shield

The turbo 2 is in a league of it's own with regards to resistance to drops. It can withstand a 900 FOOT DROP and not shatter. Now admittedly there is some damage to the frame and the screen protector did get partially mangled and would need to be replaced but otherwise the phone was still operational.


On the s7/S7 Edge, I wouldn't expect it to survive even 10% of that drop onto concrete without shattering the screen.
