According to the folks at Samsung and Corning, the Galaxy S4 will be the first Samsung device to make use of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. Why is this significant? Well for those with butter fingers, the Gorilla Glass 3 is said to be up to three time as scratch resistant as its predecessor, meaning that it will be able to take a fair bit of abuse. We agree that it does sound a bit like marketing talk, so the question is can the display really take a beating before showing signs of damage? Well one Samsung  Galaxy S4 owner decided to put the new Gorilla Glass 3 display to the test and has attempted to scratch the display of the phone with knives, keys and coins, with no success! It’s a bit cringe-worthy to see such a beautiful device abused this way, but at the same time it’s good news for those who don’t believe in screen protectors or covers for their phones.
