Earlier we have seen a lot of movies that show the advantages and disadvantages of sapphire glass and similar measures of protection from Corning. As for sapphire, it is immediately possible to provide a high resistance to mechanical damage. This material is very difficult to scratch. But don't forget that sapphire glass is much easier to break than the products of Corning, just dropping the device. However, some vendors experimented with sapphire.
When the network was rumored that Apple may refuse the use of iPhone 6 Gorilla Glass in favor of sapphire glass, some manufacturers of components that could alert and nervous. Corning at the same time would still remain on the market, but the company's profit could decline.
