iPhone 6 Sapphire Screen Could Be ‘Legitimate’, Says Expert

The super-tough sapphire glass screen will be included in the iPhone 6, which is not just a rumor or a wish any more, since an expert who spoke to Apple confirmed it with the Guardian.

You might be impressed with a video leaked this Monday, showing a 4.7-inch sapphire screen being attacked by a knife and a bunch of keys, and bent under a foot without any scratch, dent or break. (Gadgets, iPhone 6)

Hmmm... Very interesting. Absolutely cool on the damage resistance and all...

But, I will still buy a flip close case for my iPhone 6 when I get it.

Sapphire glass actually has value 9 on the Mohs scale so basically it would be really hard to scratch that thing unless you have >9 value material such as diamond to scratch it with. (glass is 5.5-7, hardened steel is 7)

And suddenly all phone case companies wept in fear. This is seriously a huge selling point. I hate phone cases personally but only got it because Gorilla Glass sucks.

Yeah, there's a huge difference between sapphire glass and gorilla glass. Gorilla glass is 6.8 on Mohs scale but since the Mohs scale is logarithmic, it means that sapphire glass (9) is actually over 100 times harder than gorilla glass.

About time they fixed this problem. I drop my phone all the time and never had it crack on me, but I have the rubber(ish) glass protector on it.

So weird seeing a friend simply have their iPhone slip out of their hand and pick it up to see a huge crack across the screen.

That means that Apple is slowly following Samsung's route by releasing a 5-6'' phones..
