Gorilla Glass 5 is pretty tough and it is a feature on many of the latest smartphones.
GG5 will survive a 1.6-metre “shoulder height” drop onto hard, rough surfaces 80% of the time – apparently up to four times better drop failure than its nearest competitors.
A recent global study by Toluna reveals that 85% of smartphone owners have dropped their phone at least once per year, and 55% are plain clumsy. Most drops occur at anything from waist to shoulder height, usually while taking selfies.
Of course, there are terms and conditions to stop would-be Gorillas glassing your phone and it is all explained here.
ITWire had a first look at these devices here.
