zte axonWherever we go and whatever we touch, we end up picking up or transferring germs in the process, so you can only imagine how filthy your smartphone’s display is when you consider how many times a day we touch our devices, speak into them, or press them against our faces. Kind of makes you cringe, doesn’t it?

However as it turns out, if you pick up the brand new ZTE Axon, you can rest assured knowing that your phone will be relatively germ free. This is because it has been recently revealed that the ZTE Axon is actually the first smartphone in the world to take advantage of Corning’s Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass.

The Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass was actually announced in January of 2014, but it seems that the first smartphone OEM to use it in their products is none other than ZTE. Basically what this glass does is that it offers an antimicrobial layer on the glass that ensures that your display remains relatively germ-free.

However this might be just marketing since Corning does state that the technology “makes no direct or implied claims to protecting users or providing other health benefits.” But if you think that it does help, or if it makes you feel better, then why not? After all the ZTE Axon is a pretty powerful handset in its own right, so the antimicrobial display is really just icing on the cake.
