With the report factories whipping up a tornado around some claimed sapphire screens for the following iPhone(s), you could imagine that Corning– the firm that that makes the Gorilla Glass shows Apple has actually been using for some time now– is a little stressed. As you may anticipate, Corning’s opinion of the new display tool that could possibly usurp its own offering is less than radiant. Actually, to reveal simply exactly how substandard sapphire is, Corning produced a comparison video.
Well that absolutely really did not make sapphire appearance like a practical replacement, but as this test was executed by Corning, it’s completely possible that any kind of product that would make it into an Apple device would certainly carry out considerably better.
There’s additionally the matter of scratches, which does not seem dealt with in Corning’s video clip. Sure, a few hundred pounds of stress on the display is one point, however how frequently is an iPhone based on that kind of therapy in the real life? The better risk has consistently been scrapes, and if my own iPhones are any sort of indication of longevity, Gorilla Glass is about as scrape resistant as a potato.
