Watch Gorilla Glass 2 Get Stress Tested Against Other Glass

Having Gorilla Glass on a touch-device is a good bullet point to have. While the name may be marketing, the actual product is a huge plus for tablets and smartphones. In our experience, Gorilla Glass keeps touchscreens looking more pristine under harsh (or everyday use) conditions.

At CES 2012, Corning announced Gorilla Glass 2, which is just as tough as the original glass technology, but with an up-to-20 percent thinner profile. Corning says that thinner Gorilla Glass 2 will enable slimmer and sleeker devices, brighter images, and greater touch sensitivity.

We captured a strength test demo from the show floors of CES. Special thanks to Tom's Hardware reader Christopher Ly who volunteered to assist in the demo:

  • Why don't they ever break the glass? I want to see how much force it can withstand

  • chickenhoagieLooks pretty solid..Would've been nice to see a scratch resistant test though. My iphone 4 has still gotten scratches what looks like has been from my car keys

    I became borderline religious about which pockets I use for what items after my old iPhone 3G got a nasty gouge in the middle of the screen. Keys, change, ID badges, etc. go in the right pocket. Phone, paper and other items softer than the screen go in the left.

    iPhone 4 and 4S do NOT use Gorilla Glass. Fact.
