Does Your Phone Use Gorilla Glass?

By Brandon Miniman December 22, 2010, 1:41 pm

We often hear the term "Gorilla Glass" to describe the material used for many smartphone screens, but what does this actually mean? Well, Gorilla Glass is a proprietary material made by Corning. As Corning puts it:

Gorilla Glass features exceptional damage resistance to the scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use. It's thin, cool to the touch, and cleans easily — making it the perfect solution for sleek, seamless designs. And it's sensitive enough to enable today's most sophisticated touch applications.

Manufactured using Corning's proprietary fusion process, Gorilla Glass features the same unparalleled surface quality as all of Corning's high-technology display substrates.

Material engineers might find it interesting how Gorilla Glass is made from a chemical standpoint, but for consumers, Gorilla Glass means fewer scratches. You can find Gorilla Glass on these devices:

  • Dell
    • Aero
    • Streak
    • Venue Pro
  • LG
    • LG Mini
    • Arena TV
    • Ophone
    • Ally
    • Optimus 7
  • Motorola: All
  • Samsung
    • Behold II
    • Flight II
    • Galaxy A
    • Galaxy S
    • Galaxy Tab
    • S8500 WAVE
    • Trance
    • Transform
    • Ultra TOUCH S8300
  • SK Telesys
    • Rain Phone
    • Reaction Phone

In our experience, Gorilla Glass does indeed improve the durability of the display over traditional glass panels found on smartphones just a couple of years ago. No longer do you have to remember to keep your keys and your phone in separate pockets (though it's always good practice). What has been your experience with Gorilla glass?
