How tough is the Gorilla Glass 3?

It hasn’t been that long since the Samsung Galaxy S4 has reached the stands, but a bunch of brave folks have already put its Gorilla Glass 3 display to strenuous work.

To give you a quick recap, Gorilla Glass 3 is made from an enhanced glass composition that utilizes the new Native Damage Resistance technology to provide “enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility, and better retained strength once a scratch occurs.”


If you have any doubts about the Gorilla Glass 3’s ability to shield your display from common things in your pocket, the video below can sway you to think otherwise.

If you check out the video on YouTube, you’ll see some commenters claims that the owner is not hitting the screen hard enough to dent it. We’re not saying that the Gorilla Glass 3 can take anything you throw its way, but it’s relieving to know that it can take some beating if and when the situation calls for it.

    Try sand. Tingnan natin kung wala scratch.

  2. The dude has enough money to buy a brand new Samsung Galaxy S4, but he can’t even buy a decent ceiling lamp. Excellent priorities!

    • you’re concerned about the ceiling lamp???

    • because: Samsung Galaxy S4 > fancy ceiling lamp

    • benchmark

      have you ever thought that the area he is doing the scratch test is their garage or attict…anyhow, where ever he done the scratch test, I hope they do drop test of every gorilla glass…I saw a site doing a ball bering test with custom screen protector and without the screen protector.

  3. You don’t even to bother to buy another screen protector for your samsung mobile again that was just my plan if I have the money to buy Samsung galaxy s4.

  4. kung ibabase lang sa video na ito, anung pagkakaiba nito dun sa mga scratch test ng gorilla glass 2? hindi ba parang parehas din ng resulta? o mali ako? bale parang marketing shit lang ang ‘3’ sa gorilla glass 3?

    pakicorrect na lamang ako kung ako ay nagkamali.

    actually, ang basis ko pagbili ng bagong celphone, good camera and gorilla glass screen.
    ‘yung celphone ko na Samsung Wave, 2010 ko pa nabili ‘yun, walang screen protector at cover,hanggang ngayon wala pa ring scratch..

  6. g3 compare to asahi glass used by Xz… asahi glss may be ahead by 20-30%

  7. heard that LG G2 is much better and durable
