Image result for gorilla glass 6Gorilla Glass 6 is far better  and durable as compared to its previous version glasses. According to a study  a person normally drops his mobile 7 times in a year. Out of which 50 percent drop is 1 meter or below it.

These droppings causes  lots of damages to device and also to the owner’s pocket. So, Corning scientists engineered such a glass which can resist such droppings. This glass can tolerate a drop from 1 meter or above,  on a rough surface as mentioned on the company’s website.


It is also found that this glass performs better than GG 5. Gorilla Glass 6 is completely a newly chemically formulated glass. It is highly compressed glass which can tolerate even abnormal drops of the device.

You can think today the mobile phones we use are generally protected with GG 2.5 or GG 3. Only a counted number of handsets come with GG 5 and Gorilla Glass 6 is even better than GG 5. Now you can understand the standard of this glass.

GG’s rivals

World  wide Corning  encounters mainly two rivals. Dragontrail and sapphire glass creates a tough competition for corning. Still corning is not very much effected as its technology is far ahead from them. But rivals are rival no matter how strong they are.

Corning once again proved superior to its rivals. GG 6 is demo for the future protectives that how thin and tough they would be. This attempt of Corning is a lamp of hope for its consumers.
