Gorilla Glass 4 Is Corning's Toughest Glass Cover Yet

“This is a sponsored post with Mums the Word Network and Corning Incorporated. All opinions are my own.”




 
    Have you heard about Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4? I had never heard about Gorilla Glass 4 either, but when I asked my teen, he informed me about this tough glass cover. My teen told me that Gorilla Glass 4 is installed on devices to protect things like phones and tables from drops. This tough glass cover will dramatically improve protection against drops on asphalt, concrete, and other rough surfaces. In laboratory tests, 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 design. That sounded like an awesome product to me and I just had to find out more about this tough glass.

  I had just attended a blogging conference in New York this past week and while I was there I saw many ladies dropping their phones and tablets. Now for those that don't know about blogging conferences, we are using our phones and tablets all the time. We are using those devices to take pictures, to talk with other people and to write notes. At the same time we are talking to companies and carrying around bags filled with items from those awesome companies that want to work with us. All this juggling can lead to us dropping our phones and tablets. Dropping a device may cause the screen to crack and break which is not a good thing as that can cost a lot of money to repair. That is where Gorilla Glass 4 comes into play. A phone or tablet that is protected with this glass survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high. This tough glass improves damage resistance against sharp contact from a drop on even surfaces like concrete and asphalt. I like knowing that using a device with Gorilla Glass 4 will help protect it from those accidental drops to the floor. So if I drop my phone, it has a way better chance of not breaking with Gorilla Glass 4. I love that peace of mind that the glass on my phone stands a better chance of not breaking or cracking if I drop it..


    So I bet by now you are wondering how you can get Gorilla Glass 4 on your phone or tablet. Gorilla Glass is featured on many smartphones, tablets and notebook computers. This glass comes already included as part of these devices. You may already have this tough glass on your phone. To find out if Gorilla Glass 4 is on your device or if you are in the market for a new Smartphone, Tablet, or Notebook, then click on the below link to see a list of the products that have Gorilla Glass on them.


   I looked at the list and found out that Gorilla Glass is  on my teenager's phone. I am also going to be purchasing a Smartphone so I will be looking at this list as I want this tough glass on my phone. So when your whole life is on your device, help protect it with Corning's toughest cover glass yet.

  2. I've never heard of that before, but it's definitely something that would be great to have. I always worry when I take my phone offroading, this would help it to stay safer! :)
