    News - Keep an eye on Corning during CES, new Gorilla Glass 2

    Gorilla Glass 1 was good but far from perfect, how about version 2?

    I havent used a Gorilla glass device (Both my HTC Desire HD and my sony tablet S havent got it)

    If they are making it for TV`s as well now it could be really good for people with young kids etc

    My Galaxy S2 is thrown in my bag with keys, wallet and other bits and bobs. So far there isn't a single miniscule scratch on the screen - even when angled into the light you can't even see any fine sratches.

    I've never used a protective case, yet the phone looks almost as good as the day it arrived almost 8 months ago.

    As such I'm a big fan of gorilla glass now, excellent scratch resistance.

    Mine has a whopping and deep scratch on it from being in my pocket with keys for under 2 minutes!

    Gorilla Glass is great when pressure is applied, it becomes stronger, but when sharp edges lightly glide by it's another story.

    possibly - might be an 'ultrabook' though.

    I have an invisibleshield screen protector rather than GG on my desire hd. It reduces the sensitivity of my touch screen - is that a problem for anyone who has just the glass?

    Broke my GG rather easily, remember those tests online of people jamming pens into GG and it being absolutely fine? Well, the first time it was, but 6 months in the glass had weakened so much that it scratched as easily as plastic (or maybe my pens are sharper than Stanley knives). Back to a resistive plastic screen for me now and I'm loving it

    Scratched my Tablet that had GG easily, yet my HTC Desire screen is hardly scrached after a year and a half, and that doesnt have GG.

    I think its all about luck tbh
