Gorilla glass has absolutely nothing to do with shatter resistance. It is chemically hardened, to make it scratch RESISTANT. If anything, the hardening would make it MORE prone to shattering, since increased hardness oftentimes equals increased brittleness.[/QUOTE]
^^^^^ This is correct. ^^^^
Think of it like the side windows in your car they are very strong basketballs and even leaning on them wont break them, but when hit the right way they shatter into thousands of tiny pieces. This is so you don't get hurt by the glass. It is also a result of the specific hardening process used to make the glass.
