Of course, as soon as we got our hands on the Galaxy Note 2, we had to do a Galaxy Note 2 Scratch Test. The Galaxy Note 2 is protected with Gorilla Glass 2. According to the manufacturer, “Corning“, the glass is as strong as the original Gorilla Glass, while being 20% thinner.
Here’s our own test, where I attack it with my house keys. The Galaxy Note 2 passes this scratch test with flying colours:
We’ve proven in previous posts that Gorilla Glass 2 is pretty tough – but a key would never really any damage to any glass, strengthened or not. We didn’t get a chance to try it with a ceramic cup or diamond cutting tool – but most people don’t carry those around in their pockets!
The guys over at CALMmobile have done a nice comprehensive scratch test of the Galaxy Note 2 with keys, scissors, and finally go crazy on it with a kitchen knife. The Galaxy Note 2 stands up really well against this onslaught, but the final few ninja slices show a few tiny scratches on the screen.
We will keep this post updated with other scratch tests, drop tests and durability tests as they emerge! Watch this space!
