The Nokia Lumia 1020 uses Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 on the 4.5 inch display and on the camera cover found on the back of the handset; the Finnish OEM took some time to write all about the Glass that it is counting on to protect the display and the camera covering from falling prey to a butterfingers owner.

Gorilla glass didn't help my Lumia 900 from shattering from a waist high drop. I'm not impressed by the glass, but the phone on the other hand...

Gorilla Glass is over hyped and a crap product. Sapphire glass is what every flagship should be using.

No other new features to discuss I guess. Next is the type of charger that came in the box.

my friend accidentally dropped his s4, and that's it. Screen broken.

Same exact glass is on the 1020, doubt it will do very well in drop test because gorilla glass 3 on s4 = fail.
