    Maybe we can all just buy wholesale panes of Gorilla Glass and some super glue. Problem solved.

    The droid incredible launched as an SAMOLED phone originally (I believe without GG). And then later the screen was replaced with a SLCD (I believe thats the model with GG).

    Which do you have?

    My Incredible right now is a newer model and I can basically take grains of sand / a knife / keys / anything to it without any scratches. I have broken one of them by dropping it about 6 feet right onto the side of it. But other than that no complaints here with GG.

    I have both and they both got scratched up. GG is not what people make it out to be. Actually the majority of my phones have had GG and I can't think of one of them that has not gotten scratched.

    The iPhone uses Gorilla Glass.
    The iPhone does NOT use GG. It uses a much cheaper and thinner version that's not officially licensed. I don't know why this myth persists.

    If you read the other posts you'll realize it's far from a myth. No sense rehashing this again.

    What in the world are you talking about? Just because Corning admits that they don't list all of the products that use their glass doesn't prove that the iPhone uses GG. How in the world did you come to that conclusion?

    Pretty sure the glass was the same on both, only the internal lcd screen changed.


    Anyway, while the AMOLED screen was made by Samsung, it wasn't of the same caliber of even the ones used in the SGS. As far as I know, they only switched due to shortages because Samsung launched their SGS line.

    Gorilla Glass, like all hardened mineral glass is inferior and sucks. Until I can have a phone with the same optical quality sapphire that I have on my dress watch, I'm gonna rant.

    ^looks pretty freaking stupid doesn't it?

    I swear to christ Verizon could launch a phone made of solid gold that provided sexual satisfaction and half the people would complain about it. Buy whatever you want. Nobody here has the answers you want to hear -- only you can decide whats best for you.

    All I know is every time I hear someone who bought a Vigor or RAZR cry about updates, I'm gonna laugh inside.

    About as freaking stupid as someone being surprised that people have expressed concerns in a thread called "concerns seem to be building"? Lol :-)

    Surprised? Nope. I expect as much.

    That doesn't make the constant bickering that happens before Verizon releases any Android phone any less tedious or stressful.

    That doesn't sound like BS to you?

    Corning would be within all legal rights to advertise who uses their products, unless it was some top secret classified information. I don't think iPhone falls under that
    As a matter of fact, this happens all the time between manufacturers and everything comes down to legal contracts between the companies themselves about exactly what is and is not acceptable or approved.

    And if you haven't noticed, iPhone and Apple are a pretty big deal with very strict control around their brand and product.

    (I know I'm asking for it with this post... lol)

    I know you were trying to make a point, but just for arguments sake, sapphire though HIGHLY scratch resistant, is also highly likely to shatter upon blunt force.. (as an owner of 8 watches, 6 which are sapphire automatics or manual-wind.. )

    Threads like this only illustrate that some people have a complete misunderstanding of the technology they use and talk about. Making bold factual proclamations about things that are unverifiable or even illogical (like saying the Samoled HD screen is "outdated" when it's the first of it's kind) gives this little to no credibility.

    It's similar to the original Galaxy S and the Nexus S. The newer type of sAMOLED was used with the Galaxy S II. So no...It's not the first of its kind at all. It simply has more pixels.

    Can you list another time SAMOLED has been used on a phone at WXGA?

    No? Then first of its kind, bud.

    There needs to be a Nexus complaint sub-forum.

    Too bad Android doesn't have a Jobs that will die and then everyone forgets that the Nexus isn't the huge upgrade they were hoping for.

    nexus = the winner for people looking for a toy (not to slight it.. its just going to be favored by devs, people who want something techy)

    razr = the winner for people looking for a phone (that has a solid radio, build, and gps)

    I cant buy another samsung at this point.. I care most about my phone working as a phone.

    If I had endless money.. and considered rom'ing etc as a hobby.. the nexus would be on my list aswell.

    How do we know Razr's radio is not all messed up? We haven't tried it, right?
    BMX said that Nexus's LTE performance is on par with Bionic's. He also said that because of Nexus he hasn't spent too much time with other two phones.
    I think I'll trust his judgement.

    I cannot see the Razr as a choice device for a phone with a sealed battery. At that point, you might as well go iPhone, which you know for certain will have good battery life.
