There\u2019s no avoiding it. Sooner or later you\u2019re going to drop that expensive smartphone. And, most likely, you\u2019ll end up with a crack\u2014or cracks\u2014spreading across the glass face. Corning doesn\u2019t think that should be the case.\r\n\r\nCorning Gorilla Glass 6 is the toughest glass yet, and with so many devices increasing the size of the glass surfaces and even wrapping the glass around the back, a tougher glass is definitely needed. Corning developed new testing methodologies that are more rigorous than previous approaches. In these new tests, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 consecutive drops from one meter onto rough surfaces. Those results are two times better than those of Gorilla Glass 5. How did the competitors\u2019 glass fair? They didn\u2019t even survive the first drop.\r\n\r\nConsidering that at least once a year people drop their phones from a height of 1.6 meters or higher and four times a year from 1 meter, you\u2019re going to want to make sure the odds are in your favor with a glass that is strong enough to live up to its name.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
