Is it true or is it just a bluff? Well, Samsung have been marketing their latest Galaxy Note20 series with several features but oddly, the fact that the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus is not one of the highlights. In case you forgot, the Gorilla Glass Victus is the latest innovation by Corning and it's one tough glass. How tough? Read below to see for yourself.

The folks at TechRax did a drop test for all of the Apple iPhone smartphones. This included a side drop and front facing drop for each iPhone onto a hard driveway, revealing that while most of the iPhones can take a beating from the side, nearly all of them smashed from the front. Granted, the front of the Apple iPhone 3G did not shatter but this was mainly due to luck as it dropped on the side first. While it doesn't seem to show any difference from beginning to end, it does show that if you're going to get any Apple iPhone, the first thing you should do is get a shock-proof casing around it quick because an accidental front drop will probably result in a shattered screen.

Both the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have already been released in the US and selected markets. As such, there is already a drop test for both iPhones, this time courtesy of Phonebuff. The drop test reveals that the new metal casing is definitely tough and strong, with next to no damage from the drops apart from a few scratches. However, the supposedly shatter proof glass protecting both screens... shattered, quite badly. Apple has been quite clear in that the glass covering both iPhones is not Corning Gorilla Glass. We also would like to note that the Home button for both the iPhones which is protected by sapphire crystal did not break or crack, and that the larger and heavier iPhone 6 Plus broke faster than the iPhone 6, proving that the bigger something is, the harder it will fall.
