As you all know, Galaxy Note 7 is the first ever smartphone to have the Gorilla Glass 5 protection so here’s how that protection is going to be tested out. A drop test video has been recorded and it pretty much shows you the extent to which a Galaxy Note 7 is able to survive if you mistakenly drop it from a substantial amount of distance. The Gorilla Glass 5 is definitely durable, to the extent that it will also protect devices from scratches, but like everything else, it too has a limit to protecting the handset.
Corning has stated time and time again that Gorilla Glass 5 will protect the smartphone from a height of 1.6 meters, and that’s only when the phone is able to make impact from the glass and the surface. In majority of the cases, the display is not going to survive, but Corning already mentioned this, stating that it can provide protection to 80 percent of these drops.
Still, it’s far more effective than Gorilla Glass 4, which only provides protection up to a single meter, and does not guarantee that the smartphone’s display will look spick and span after moving up against a rough surface.
We have also reported on the 6 milestones that the Galaxy Note 7 has been able to achieve, so if you’d like to read about it, you can do so at any time. The phone is currently available in two chipset models, a Snapdragon 820 one and an Exynos 8890. With a 3,500mAh battery and USB-C port, we believe that it’s a decent combination, and the 64GB of internal storage is also plentiful for average users out there.
Like its predecessors before it, Galaxy Note 7 possesses a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, and it’s been cited by DisplayMate to have the best smartphone display on the planet.
