Want A Smartphone With Gorilla Glass 6? Here Is Your Shopping Guide

Posted by

The 6th generation of Corning’s protective glass for smartphones is designed to be thin, light, and damage resistant. It is in use on most premium smartphones released in 2020. If you want one of them, here is a list of some of the best Gorilla Glass 6 phones available in the market today.

First, what is Gorilla Glass? It is a chemically strengthened glass manufactured and developed by Corning. Gorilla Glass provides some level of protection against the shattering and scratching of glass on smartphones. Sometimes, it is applied only on the display of the phone, but there are times that it is used on both the front and rear of smartphones, in cases where the phones have glass all round.

Why Should You Buy A Gorilla Glass 6 Phone?

Gorilla Glass 6 is so named because it is the sixth generation of the product. Before it, there have been 5 generations – Gorilla Glass 1, Gorilla Glass 2 , Gorilla Glass 3, Gorilla Glass 4, and Gorilla Glass 5.

According to Corning, Gorilla Glass 6 survives drops from up to 1.6 meters. The company claims that competing protective glass competitors can not survive such drops and that Gorilla Glass 6 also delivers 2x improvements in scratch resistance.

So, the main attraction is that Gorilla Glass 6 phones offer the latest glass protection. But that isn’t all. Because it is new, only top performance and top quality smartphones have been released with Gorilla Glass 6 as at this time.

This means that using a Gorilla Glass 6 smartphone also means that you are using one of the best smartphones available in the market. You get a gorgeous display, premium build quality, a solid processor, lots of RAM, large storage, great cameras, and generally cuttting edge specifications and features.

Buying a Gorilla Glass 6 phone in 2020 means you are getting one of the best smartphones available in the market.

With all this being said, it doesn’t mean that if your phone falls it cannot break. Glass will always be glass and if it falls to a hard surface, there are always chances that it will shatter. However, Gorilla Glass decreases the chances of a shatter or scratch happening. I recommend that you use a protective case with your phone to increase its safety.
