Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 Offers Additional Protection For Our Phones
How do you feel about your cell phone? Is it an extremely valuable tool in your life? For me it definitely is! I use it not only as communication but as a method to help in keeping my kids safe – online and in life; it is a tool for emergency responders to help with my kids varying special needs; it has so many safety and health tools right at my fingertips. I can’t afford to have something go wrong with my phone.
With five kids we have gone through our share of cell phone catastrophes – dropped phones, wet phones, lost phones and of course the phones that just no longer work. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 does offer a solution for at least one of those problems…Gorilla Glass 4 dramatically improves protection against drops!
Gorilla Glass offers protection that allows our devices to remain thin, light and beautiful. It helps to resist the abuses that come with mobility and life. It provides exceptional damage resistance to the scratches and bumps of everyday use.

Just recently (without Gorilla Glass) I watched in horror as my 14 year old autistic son dropped his phone and the glass shattered. Now that I have replaced his phone – I intend to minimize the possibility of that happening again. I definitely immediately felt sick. Corning Incorporated’s top scientists performed thousands of hours of tests to understand how and why glass breaks when dropped. Then they developed a way to deliver dramatically improved performance against drops on rough surfaces. How dramatic? In lab tests, Gorilla Glass 4 performs up to 2x better than competitive glass designs in devices dropped from approximately 3 feet high. And the drop tests are the toughest in the industry, conducted on rough surfaces that best approximate the real world of jagged streets, sidewalks and parking lots. In laboratory tests, Gorilla Glass 4 survives up to 80% of the time when dropped from 3 feet high, and was up to 2x tougher than competitive glass designs. A great solution when you whole life is on that device. Gorilla Glass 4 is the toughest cover glass yet.
So now that I have purchased a replacement phone for him – made sure it featured Gorilla Glass 4. There are people who think I am crazy for replacing his phone(s) but think of it as a tiny life preserver. When he is unable to communicate from frustration or being overwhelmed – his phone can do it for him; when he can’t speak enough to tell emergency personnel where he needs to be or why he is where he is – his phone can help; when he can’t speak enough to tell me where he is – I can see him on my phone… Those are just a few of the reasons it is so important that he has a working phone with him at all times. And he is just one of our special needs children. Technology is available today to make even people with the greatest of special needs more independent – but broken technology can be devastating! With Gorilla Glass 4, the focus is on improving damage resistance against sharp contact, such as a drop on asphalt, concrete, and other rough surfaces and it dramatically improves protection against drops. Corning Gorilla Glass 4 is additional protection for the life preserver!
