Maybe gorilla glass isn't what it used to be. I had a motorola backflip before this that had the g.g. Since I've dropped it more than a few times on concrete, and even at a bit of a height and it only got tiny chips on the side, I was pretty impressed.G.G. became a high priority in my new phone, which wound up being a note. well, it got it's first drop today, after about 6 weeks of ownership. from my dest to the hard floor. it spidered out. that seemed a bit lame. So I took out my backflip and dropped it from my desk, and even a bit higher. It took the abuse like a champ. I think they must have reformulated it, or made it thinner, or something. I just watched a few demo videos on gorilla glass, and from what I've seen g.g. should have laughed at that fall. Right now I believe gorilla glass is nothing special, and pretty much on (or below) par with anything else. Unfortunately I didn't have my new credit card when I bought it (i used debit) so the purchase insurance isn't there.
