Yesterday a good friend of mine was distraught. He showed me his cellphone and the screen was cracked. He was grocery shopping when his phone rang, and he dropped it in the store while trying to multitask.
Nowadays, most of us use our technology devices for work, play and networking. It’s an awful feeling when you lose your myriad connections due to its glass shattering. I try to be super careful with my device, but, even still I have dropped it quite a few times.
Since we want thin, aesthetically pleasing, scratch resistant surfaces and still want durability, I did some research to become more aware.
Corning Incorporated has had their top scientists perform thousands of hours of tests to help understand how and why glass shatters when dropped. They then developed a way to deliver dramatically improved performance.
How dramatic? Well, in laboratory tests, Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high, and was up to 2x tougher than competitive glass designs.
With Gorilla Glass 4, great focus was spent on improving damage resistance against sharp contact, such as a drop on asphalt, concrete or other rough surfaces and now we get the benefits.
Many of us have photos, important data, contacts, notes, and so much more on our devices.
The beauty of this is being mobile and the ability to take all our info wherever we go on a light small device. Unfortunately, the drawback is that often a simple drop may cause you to lose priceless photos and information and completely shatter your day.
Is your device well-protected? Gorilla Glass 4 is the toughest cover glass yet and dramatically improves protection against drops. Who says tough can’t be beautiful? Visit CorningGorillaGlass.com to learn more!
