Samsung trashed more than a football field of glass to make the HD Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy Nexus

6600 square meters of glass substrate went into the trash bin until Samsung's researchers managed to pierce 720x1280 pixels in the 4.65" display on the Galaxy Nexus phone with HD Super AMOLED...

Corning didn't make the glass for the Galaxy Nexus?

Corning? You mean Samsung-Corning?
Yup. They have a joint company together

@remixfa: Whoever said the SGN would have Gorilla Glass? Has this been confirmed?

It has been confirmed that the Nexus has reinforced glass that is supposedly equivalent to Gorilla Glass.

If they can survive a drop it doesn't matter. I have the Skyrocket and it fell screen down from about a foot on to a hard linoleum floor and cracked the screed. I was stunned as usually it takes the corner drop to bust it.

Ouch!! That sucks bigdawg23!
I guess your Skyrocket dropping experience coincides with Phone Arena's review; their test Skyrocket accumulated scratches just from putting the phone in their pocket and taking it out.
Gotta believe the original S GSII used different and stronger glass.

But still SUPER AMOLED Is a prettier screen than RETINA DISPLAY

Richer colours, deeper blacks, lower power consumption. Its a win-win all round for SAMOLED screens vs SLCD

Small correction: SAMOLED is only better power consumption if it mostly shows the color "black," which implies that particular set of OLEDs is off.
If comparing all white screens on SAMOLED and LCD displays, LCD wins the low-power consumption award.
