Tougher than ever: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the world's first phone to use Gorilla Glass 5
Gorilla Glass 5 is Corning's strongest glass to date: according to its maker, it should survive drops from 5.25 feet (1.6 meters) on rough surfaces in "up to 80% of cases". The glass protects both the 5.7-inch dual curve display of the Galaxy Note 7, and its rear, so the device should hold on really well when it comes to accidental drops - certainly better than the Note 5, which uses Gorilla Glass 4.
