o really. Then the crack in my Samsung Galaxy s2 is a figment of my imagination.
No, its user abuse.
For every user with a cracked glass I raise you 1 million users who do not abuse their phones.
The point was never that you couldn't break a alkali-aluminosilicate glass screen, its just that it breaks less easily than prior materials, and allows equal strength with less thickness.
Odd you should lash out a a key component of miniaturization in a story suggesting that phones are getting too big.
It wasn't particular user abuse.Obviously it fell on the floor, due to my son knocking it out of my hand, therefore its my fault that it fell. I have done similar things with lots of devices which I made plain, and nothing had ever happened to those, apart from scuffing. I am not a shill or astroturfing - read my posts etc. - arghh how paranoid is slashdot now.
Yeah there are millions of people who haven't cracked their screens etc.. I didn't originally say that the screens had got stronger, I was replying to a post. I am evidently annoyed that something that is advertised as better doesn't survive better than the abuse I have given previous phones/screens.
If I didn't keep seeing adverts for how good corning gorilla glass is on Dell products, mobile phones etc.. It wouldn't irritate me.
I said as much on xda devs and I got just as roasted. We shall see how well this glass handles in the future.
Thanks for your time :)
