4.7-inch iPhone 6 Sapphire Glass Put Through Its Paces In Scratch Test

The upcoming iPhone 6 is going to be a far cry from the traditional Apple iPhone and with this latest flagship smartphone, Apple is bringing a couple of changes to the platform. To begin with, the display size was something that surprised us all quite a bit because it’s the largest screen size anyone has seen on an iPhone. Apart from that, the design itself is a far more evolved as compared to the contemporary iPhone designs with more inspiration from the iPad and iPod touch outlook. One other major difference is going to be the sapphire glass on the front panel which a shift from the typical Gorilla Glass from Corning that Apple has been using.

A recent video has leaked which shows the panel’s ability to bend and the front shell’s resistance to scratches. We have often heard of the drop test or the stress test which phones typically have to go through but the truth is that these tests don’t really tell the phone’s actual performance in the real world. But when it comes to the key-and-knife test, things get different and we know that it is a solid way of showing how durable the phone is. In the video clip, YouTube techie Marques Brownlee slashes the device with a sharp tool and this is a real world practicality test because our phone is most likely going to come across sharp things such as keys and other pocket fodder.

We don’t need an explanation as to why Apple would replace the Gorilla Glass with sapphire glass. It is the outermost component of an iPhone’s camera and it simply cannot be ignored because of its super ultra clarity which obviously makes it a better choice.
