Gorilla Glass 4 is designed to protect phones from rough tumbles


  • Kickside01

    I hate when a company has to bash another company to promote themselves . (soda-lime comment )

    • awhite2600

      Soda-Lime. Is that 7Up or Sprite? 😉

    • John W. Farris

      Mountain Dew. 😀

    • Grafikal

      I believe that was no a case of bashing, but just as a point of comparison.

    • Kickside01

      I dunno. same as saying the ford such and such is better because the chevy sucks balls…..

    • jroc

      Not at all. They’re providing quantifiable stats as opposed to a qualitative statement.

    • mxmgodin

      They’re not bashing. Here’s another quote from their press release:
      “Corning® Gorilla® Glass has outperformed competing materials, such as soda-lime glass and other strengthened glass, since it was introduced in 2007 […]”

      They’re just comparing to other types of commercial glass, and soda-lime is one of them.

    • Aaron Sum

      Soda-lime glass is just a type of glass tht is manufactured.
      It’s not a bash at any company.
      It’s like saying “we developed steel thts stronger than iron”
      They aren’t bashing at another brand or company. Just another type of glass using a different method of process.

    maybe by Gorilla Glass 7 they’ll figure it out

    • If you’ve already gone to university, taken all the right engineering and chemistry courses, graduated with a Bachelor’s degree (or better), and already know how to skip to Gorilla Glass 7 feel free to apply to Corning. I’m sure they’d appreciate the help.

    Proof reading required before posting mobilisyrup… Tsk tsk. Similar should be simulate.

    Maybe I can tough it out with a broken screen until then. I don’t see too many phones worth getting that’s better than my Nexus 5.

  • Samuel Gomez Recuero

    what about the antireflection glass they were also working back in 2013? both features combine should be really insteresting.

  • Ron S

    How about the manufacturers making devices that allows for easy glass replacement!

    • How about people stop being so clumsy? It’s a lot cheaper for everyone involved.

  • 4Q

    That gorilla looks more optimistic than confident…

  • Scuba Steve

    Don’t care. It’s not my job to accurately publish information. It’s theirs. But that’s too obvious to you wankers.

    • We already know that Jane needs an editor. Most of the staff need an editor. This isn’t anything new for MobileSyrup.

      Feel free to apply for the position of editor, though, if you want to help out.

    • Scuba Steve

      Couldn’t handle those wank a*s wannabe hipsters. Drive me nuts they would.

    • FTR_Part_deux

      If you didn’t really care, you wouldn’t have pointed it out in the open public and be a d0uche about it. There’s a Contacts section where you could have politely explained your position about proof reading their articles.

      The articles they provide for us are FREE and unless you have a financial investment with MS, you would be the last person to criticize for a simple spelling mistake, after all, they’re human too and are not robots to please your idea of perfection.

      It’s one thing to criticize someone for their fallacies, but when you go ahead and do something that you’re criticizing about, you deserve to be d0uchebag-shamed.

      Oh, BTW, you’re still an idi0t.

    It’s funny they make you think as if gorilla glass is not a glass any more lol

  • Jakob

    I seriously want that baby gorilla. We’d be the best of friends.
