    My OG droid has been very very good over 2 years of abuse. I wouldn't say Gorilla Glass is a deal breaker but something to look out for with potential issues.. Would be nice if we could confirm what glass it is and if it's being used on the galaxy s or any other phone.

    Lol, one thought comes to mind and that's apples reinforced screens which we all know how they do. Apples quality standards can't match gorilla but I'm not going to judge a book by its covor. Everyone is freaking out. Relax, wait for a drop test and we will see how samsungs glass does. Sidenote remember like dragontail or something like that? Was on engadget ayear ago, looked like it almost but not quite had the strength of gorilla.

    still dont understand the big deal even if doesnt have gorilla glass...i understand accidents happen...but how many of you people never even scratched your screen? even over the years...i would take a non-gorilla glass phone for the capabilities of this device any day of the week. NOT TO MENTION IT'S RUNNING COMPLETELY STOCK ANDROID. YUM

    We could all just take good care of our phones and not drop them...

    so many phones with gorilla glass can still go in and out of a pocket and end up scratched up... it's not "God glass" for goodness sake! :)

    I think gorilla glass is known enough that its almost expected to be on phones. Especially a phone costing so damn much.

    The gorilla glass (or lack thereof) MIGHT not be trivial. That said, I'm picturing a phone with a bit of a curve and think it might be hard to drop the phone directly on the glass on a flat surface. So it may not need to be as scratch/break resistant as gorilla glass, but will also depend on how the rest of the phone takes and absorbs shocks.

    I've noticed the Gorilla Glass folks don't associate their product with a ton of devices it is used on. Dunno why the hush-hush. Prob from the manufacturer's side. Their product is awesome, it should be promoted!

    Rumor is Dragontrail glass (though Dragontail probably would have sounded better). Here's a video:

    Just saw another forum mentioning Dragontail. Especially with the bending glass test, gotta make you wonder.
