The One Thing We Never Think About While Buying A Phone, But Should!

Phone shopping is such an interesting ritual. We ask, we hunt, we compare…always ready with a Rolodex of questions. But it’s usually about the battery life, or storage, or how attractive it looks.

There’s one thing we tend to forget about, even though it’s quite important…any guesses? It’s the glass! That big ol’ display screen, staring back at us every day as we tap away on our phones. How often do you ask about the glass? Because I never did. And why is that, because when that thing cracks, or shatters, or ‘ages’ with scratches, man does it hurt!

This thought struck me while at the blogger bootcamp hosted by team Gorilla Glass {click here to check out the photo diary from our trip!}. It was one weekend in the middle of the desert in Tucson, where, between hikes and jeep rides, we got to see just how tough their glass really is. And talk about tough. We took part in live demos of the scratch test, the drop test, and even despite serious efforts made by ex-NFL Linebacker Dhani Jones, that Gorilla Glass stayed tough! #GorillaTough

And then they walked us through the Tumble test – fast forward to 1:36, to see one of the (many) crazy ways in which this team tests their glass.

Now I don’t know about you, but I definitely lose my phone in my handbag ‘abyss’ few times a day, so it’s nice to know that this glass (which is already on my Micromax Canvas 5) can survive this tough situation. #GorillaGlass3

PS: Gorilla Glass has already helped protect 4.5 billion devices worldwide! If you click here, you’ll know which ones. #isitonyours

So next time you’re phone shopping, think about the glass. Why? So that your device doesn’t end up with more ‘battle wounds’ after spending all that time in your favorite handbag!
