Conversation with Corning: What are the challenges of making tempered glass?

Almost looks boring now. The same old design has been pulled for years, ie glass sandwich design

They are designed to be used without protectors.

Yes, when it comes to breaking, but not scratching.

It still scratches at Level 6 with deeper grooves at Level 7. You know that.

Not only does it temper the glass, but it also uses it on larger screens, than the size Corning tested them on, so the final toughness is far less than what the glass company claims.

The problem is that everyone thinks that improving the glass industry better is a good idea

Glass is naturally fragile and can also be shattered

Everyone also seems to think that glass screens are the best but the problem is that they are made of fragile glass

We wasted years of hard work, technology and research because we were told glass is best and best when plastic is superior

s

Sneaky manufacturers

Although it may seem that the new smartphones are more durable, they are not

Smartphones are heavier
Smartphones are now 15% heavier and 10% larger

Go from plastic to aluminum and even steel for the body of the phone, both of which are heavier than plastic (steel especially)
More problems

All of this means that the level of force the smartphone hits the ground is greater and over a larger surface area

No improvements were ever made
Because when you drop your smartphone there is a lot of breakage

Corning glass is like most other American products: average quality, sold at a high price, and considered the best in the entire world.

It is no better than Asahi or other brands of tempered glass. It’s just more expensive.

In my experience, GG2 and GG3 were the toughest against drops. Yes, it can shatter but it will not kill your screen in one drop.

GG4 was where they started the “anti-scratch” nonsense and it has gone downhill ever since.

I know from my own experience that anything with Gorilla Glass 5 or earlier is very fragile and I suspect a few generations down the road are different, but I’m looking forward to the triumph

Glass is glass and it will break no matter how you make it

All of them reduce the layers and make the glass much thinner which reduces the effectiveness of the glass. Nobody’s lying, though it’s kind of misleading because they say “triumph” but don’t mention they’ve thinned the glass so much that the improvements are barely noticeable

The biggest challenge has to be finding ways to convince people that glass is somehow better every time they re-edit it
How many versions of “ultra-hard” glass has Gorilla released so far? Each screen is supposed to be stronger than the last – at this point, phone screens should have the hardness of diamond and the shatterproofness of xD steel

You’ll smell it, 4 hours agoI wonder when the phones will start to light up? If someone starts the trend first, others will follow, and if Apple does it and makes a big splash out of a lightweight phone, you can bet the entire industry follows suit.

Anonymous, 3 hours agoThe iPhone 13 pro fared worse, obviously masked by the GG6 Ceramic armor is after all made by etching, so it is similar to GG in composition

Apple announced that it is 4 times better than previous glass versions, but they probably forgot that large and heavy phones cause glass to break on the first fall.

Dr

Glasses that get scratched just by looking at them hahaha

《Also, manufacturers have moved from plastic to aluminum and even steel for the body of the phone,
More like the other way around.

Samsung announced the S22 series which has the latest glass but the drop tests showed disappointing results. Both broke on the first drop (normal and ultra) and it’s very common for a lot of phones even with Gorilla Glass to shatter on the first fall or few falls

Is Corning lying or Samsung deliberately making phones fragile

s

Will it be better than Huawei’s Kunlun Glass?
