Default Corning gorilla glass 2 or 3????

I've read a dozen reviews on this phone and some state that it's gorilla glass2 and some state it's gorilla glass3, can someone chime in to what it actually is? Even cornings website says that the lg g2 is glass 2, I'm hoping it's not the case

The specs shown on the GSM Arena web site for the LG G2 show it as Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

I just got this phone yesterday and was wondering the same thing. Do we need a screen protector with GG2, in you opinion? Thanks.

I would put one on. I put a screen protector on last weekend and when I was using lint free cloth to clean the screen before applying the protector I noticed two very miner scratches. My G2 has never been face down or in a pocket with anything. First phone of mine to ever have a scratch on the screen and I usually run them without a screen protector.

Seriously, does it really matter in the end? How about we know the level of fiber fill in the plastic back? Is it strait PC or did they use PC/ABS blend?

Gorilla Glass 3 is stronger than 2, but that doesn't translate into any real word benefits, because in actuality, they provide GG3 in thinner sheets.

Real world benefits of GG2 vs GG3 is not noticeable by the end user. The only design advantage is it lets the phone be slightly slimmer.

And my opinion is you should always use a screen protector. Gorilla glass can scratch and chip, even GG3. We are still one whale trip back in time from transparent aluminum.

Thanks for the sound advice. I installed a screen protector just for the peace of mind.
