Thread: Corning's Gorilla Glass 2 likely to be used for iPhone 5

  1. #21
    From what I'm seeing, apple made their phone as it is because apples made a pact with the phone case manufactures so every iPhone 4 &4s owner would have to buy a protective casing and apple again rip Hugh profits. It's all about marketing strategy.

    I dont care if its thicker or heavier it needs to be strong so if you do drop it by accident then it wont crack or break which atm all iphones do. If you drop an iPhone then you need to buy a new one. If you drop a Galaxy you pick it up and keep going.
    Cock alert!

    This is the same logic from Barney from HIMYM, "Whenever I get sad, I just stop being sad and be awesome instead."
    It makes sense in one perspective, but its retarded.

    I don't get what all this arguing is about. Of course it would be good if the next iPhone had a stronger screen. Other phones have more resistant screens. No one even said that the Galaxy was better than the iPhone because it has a stronger screen.

    I've had mine in a otterbox. I have dropped it so many times I have lost count. My iPhone is still in tact. If you have a problem with dropping your iPhone just buy a case.

    Lightbulb What do gorillas eat?

    The mountain gorilla diet is mostly plants like celery, nettles, bamboo and thistles, and they are quite particular about which parts of each plant they like to eat. Sometimes they also find ant nests and eat the ants, along with an occasional worm or grub. There isn't much fruit where mountain gorillas live, but they do love to eat the wild berries that grow in their habitat. The mountain gorillas spend a lot of their time traveling in search of food. Their food is normally evenly distributed in their habitat and abundantly available throughout the year. Only a few mountain gorilla foods are seasonal, such as bamboo shoots, which are one of the gorillas' favorite delicacies. The full-grown mountain gorilla diet can include up to 60 pounds (25 kg) of vegetation a day! So obviously its going for RIM's Blackberry devices........................true story. And knowing is half the battle.

    "No need to hold on to your phone they are, Naked" is more correct than "No need to hold on to your phone there, Naked"?

    who cares if you drop your phone, its the little scratches that are caused by keys or something stupid in your pocket that are annoying. A stronger screen would be legit to stop the scratching!!!

    No comma in the original post... And no "no," either... so assuming he meant the phone is naked and must be held, then yes, "they are" makes more sense...

    I did totally fail at quoting that post. A comma is also needed to make your version make sense, so let's just attack his non use of commas. :P

    Wait..... What???? The iPhone 4 wasn't the 4th generation iPhone??? Oooook. I was under the impression that there are 5 versions of the iPhone now. I'm going to Google this once and for all..... Never mind, it's not that important.

    You realize that the '3' in the iPhone 3G signifies it's ability to use the 3G network, right? It is not an indicator of it being the third phone. It wasn't until the iPhone 4 that the numbers began representing the generations. 4S is what it is because it has the same design as the 4 and only small incremental upgrades. That's the same reason the 3GS got it's name. If they do call it the iPhone 5 (like it even matters), it will simply be because it sounds more iconic than iPhone 6. the patterns actually DON'T point to it being 5.

    Lord... iPhone 4 WAS the fourth generation of iPhone

    iPhone <-- 1st Gen
    iPhone 3G <-- 2nd Gen
    iPhone 3GS <-- 3rd Gen
    iPhone 4 <-- 4th Gen
    iPhone 4S <-- 5th Gen

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    When the iPhone 4s was launched last year EVERYBODY had said it would be the iPhone 5 and it was'nt. Why do we not wait for Apple to announce what the next one will be, then we will all know for sure instead of all this silly and petty argument about something that really does't matter.

    Ive loved all my iphones, my 3G and 3GS were bullet proof without a case and for the couple of years i had them had been bounced of all sorts of surfaces with only a few nicks and scratches... Now the i4 and 4S hmmm i learnt from my i4 to always have a case on as it seems the glass is designed to shatter into a billion pieces and at 130 i think it was from apple for front screen repair,its so expensive,considering how much we pay for these devices.

Gorilla glass is also harder than standard glass, thus reducing the chance of scratching. I see no reason not to be happy about this addition.



    I don't think the verdict is final on this. Rumors are that the only reason we got a 4S is because Apple couldn't get the "true" successor to market on time. Either way, two examples of an 'S' hardly dictate a pattern, IMO.

    Here's another example:

    2,4,6,?

    What would you say next? You could say a few things. The most obvious would be 8, but what about 10, or even 30 (I am sure there are others).

    Or, here's a thought, there really needs be no pattern at all, because Apple will sell the next gen iPhone regardless of its naming scheme, and the only morons will be those who are calling other names.
    I agree. If you haven't noticed members of MMI argue for the sake of arguing. Does it really matter that much as to what the next gen iPhone will be named? Are people not going to buy it because of its name (I'm sure there's somebody out there that has a phobia of a certain number)? These constant debates are old as well as useless.

    Apple must use something good next time for the back and front of their iPhone cause the fragile easy to break iphone is not right!

    I'm using froggy (kind of ugly case) so I don't worry if I accidentally drop it.
