Gorilla Glass 5 On Note 7 Is Prone To Scratches

Gorilla Glass 5 under fire post scratch test Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Is protected by the new Gorilla Glass 5.

The new Gorilla Glass has claimed to survive drops from a selfie height but it seems as if Corning, the company making Gorilla Glass 5 might be falling short on this claim.

YouTuber JerryRigEverything subjected the new Note 7 to a scratch test he usually carries out with his metal picks which represent different Mohs level of hardness.

The phone did not do well as it started to show signs of scratches at Mohs level 3 as opposed to before where the Gorilla Glass managed to survive until Mohs 5 or 6.

This propelled people at Android Authority to approach coring to investigate the matter.

The people at the company replied with “the test that was conducted in the video is obviously not a bonafide industry test.It’s using Mohs hardness picks but it’s in an uncontrolled manner. We also don’t know a whole lot about what loads the person has used. Whether those loads are changing as he goes through the testing.”

But it is possible that in order to make the glass more shatter proof they made it softer which made it more susceptible to scratches.

Corning therefore has concluded to say that the happenings in the video are most probably “metallic transfer”. Corning appears to be quite defensive in the interview and the whole argument being made by the company appeared to be quite convenient.

The truth no matter what it is will be out soon as the Galaxy Note 7 is out for sale but in the meantime protect your phone’s screen with a protector.
