Gorilla Glass vs Dragontrail Glass Comparison

                    Gorilla Glass and Dragontrail Glass are both very hard and tough glasses. Both these glasses are scratch resistant and are very difficult to break. Here I am making a clear comparison between these two to find out what makes them different from each other in terms of their properties and usage.

What is Gorilla Glass?

                 Gorilla glass is a very thin and tough glass which is a product of Corning, an American glass manufacturer company, therefore it is also known as Corning Gorilla Glass. It is an alkali aluminosilicate sheet glass. The glass is damage and scratch resistant, and is more expensive than a normal glass. It is used in high end smartphones, tablets, PC’s and LCD’s. Some of the popular devices using Gorilla glass are – Samsung Galaxy  S II, Samsung Galaxy Note, LG Optimus 2X.

What makes Gorilla Glass so Tough?

              Gorilla glass is toughened by a chemical process called ion exchange. The glass is put in molten potassium salt where at a temperature of approx. 400 degree celcius (~ 750 F), smaller ions leave the glass and larger potassium ions replaces them. These larger ions takes more room and are pressed together. When the glass cools a layer of compress stress is found on the surface of glass. The special composition of glass enables potassium ions to diffuse far into the surface, creating high compressive stress deep into the glass. This layer of compression makes the surface of the glass more resistant to damage in everyday use.

Corning Gorilla Glass 2

             In the beginning of 2012, corning has announced to release a new version of Gorilla glass which will be 20 percent thinner. The thinner glass will be much more responsive and sensitive to touch. There is also an increasing demand for phones having Gorilla Glass display.

Corning Gorilla Glass 3

           Gorilla Glass 3 is the latest version of Gorilla Glass that has unique Native Damage Resistant (NDR) Technology and is more damage resistant, durable, tougher and thinner than the previous Gorilla Glass 2. Corning has said that the new Gorilla Glass 3 is up to three times more damage resistant than Gorilla Glass 2.

Corning Gorilla Glass 4

           Gorilla Glass 4 is the latest entry in the Corning’s Gorilla Glass segment. The new thing in Gorilla Glass 4 is its ability to withstand harsh or rough drops. When you drop your phone from a decent height on rough surfaces then the glass screen of your phone gets cracked or breaks, but Gorilla Glass 4 is able to withstand such drops two times better than its competitive glasses. Corning has also claimed that Gorilla Glass 4 can survive such rough drops on sharp objects to up to 80 percent of the time. All the other properties of Gorilla Glass 4 like thinness, durability and optical clarity remains the same as Gorilla Glass 3.

What is Dragontrail Glass?

                        Dragontrail glass is relatively new in the market as compared to Gorilla glass. It is a very good and durable product both in terms of quality and performance. Some says that it is even stronger or tougher than the Gorilla glass. This means that it will prove to be a good competitor of the Gorilla Glass. The main properties of Dragontrail glass is its thinness, scratch resistance and hardness. Its Vickers hardness test rating is 595 to 673.


How Dragontrail Glass in Manufactured?

It is manufactured by using a highly efficient float process.


Main Features of Asahi Dragontrail Glass
  • Scratch Resistant
  • Very Tough to Break
  • Very Thin and Lightweight glass
  • Very Durable Glass
  • Environmental Friendly Glass – Does not contain lead, arsenic and antimony

There is no doubt that Dragontrail glass is a superior product if we compare it to the Corning Gorilla Glass that is already in the business and is widely used in some of the top notch smartphones, tablets and laptops. But there are only limited number of smartphones in the market that are using Dragontrail glass. In future we can expect to see Dragontrail glass being used more on smartphones, tablets and laptops in near future as it is already gaining popularity.

What is Dragontrail X Glass?

Dragontrail X Glass is an advanced and improved version of Dragontrail glass. Dragontrail X glass is 30% stronger than the normal Dragontrail glass and 8 times stronger than normal sodalime glass. Dragontrail X glass is more suitable cover glass for high-end mobile devices that includes Smartphones, Tablet, PC and Wearable devices. Here are the features of Dragontrail X Glass.


Features of Dragontrail X Glass
  • Highly Scratch Resistant
  • High Compression Stress available
  • Highly Crack–Resistant
  • Can be Available in large sizes
  • Available in variety of thickness

After seeing the above table we can conclude that these two glasses are not that different from each other besides some minor details. So if you are thinking of buying a smartphone equipped with any one of these glasses then you don’t have to worry about which glass to choose as both of them are nearly the same thing.


Do you Need Screen Guard on Gorilla or Dragontrail Glass?

You do not need to put those cheap looking plastic Screen Guards or Screen Protectors on your Gorilla or Dragontrail glass phone. In normal usage you do not need to worry as these glasses are very difficult to get scratched, and if put screen guard on it then it will totally spoil the look and feel of your phone, because screen guards can be scratched very easily and thereby reduces the visibility of your screen.

Can Gorilla Glass and Dragontrail Glass be Scratched?

It should be clearly noted that the Gorilla and Dragontrail glass are scratch resistant glasses, and not scratch proof glasses. There is a big difference between the words resistant and proof. Resistant means an object has resistance to something to a particular limit i.e. they can withstand something to a particular point. But Proof means that they have almost infinite resistance and cannot be penetrated by a particular thing or object e.g. water proof, fire proof etc.

So it means that both these glasses can withstand scratches or damage to a certain point, but they can be scratched and can be damaged if you drop it from a great height or apply too much pressure with a very pointed object, but in general day to day use and if you are somewhat careful then you do not have anything to worry. Both these glasses can withstand drops and scratches to a great level unless you torture them severely.

Advice or Tip: For users with smartphones that do not have Gorilla or Dragnontrail glass protection can use Tempered Glass Screen Protectors to protect their smartphones screen. You can read more about tempered glass screen protectors below.
