When compared with the compact mobiles, the Smartphones with bigger screens tend to slip from our hands and break. Replacing those broken screens is a pretty costly affair, considering that you bought a high-end Android phone. Thanks to the advancement in the technology, we’re now seeing unbreakable (to some extent) glasses being employed in the latest Smartphones.
Corning Inc. has developed an alkali-aluminosilicate sheet toughened glass which is thin, lightweight and damage resistant. It was registered with the name ‘Gorilla Glass’ by Corning Inc.
You can’t make your existing mobile device unbreakable. Of-course, there are some tempered glass protectors available in the market that claim to save your display screens to some extent but if you want to make your mobile scratch-proof and tough, then you better get a new Android mobile that comes with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
