Introducing Corning Gorilla Glass 5 - More Stronger Screen

Gorilla Glass is special glass(phone screen) that is very hard and most times survives falls and doesn't easily break like other normal phone screens. It is manufactured by a company called "Corning" and they just unveiled "Gorilla Glass 5", three months after releasing the "Vibrant Gorilla Glass". This latest version of Gorilla screen will provide more protection against phone screen breaks and cracks whenever the device is mistakenly or accidentally dropped down from the waist line or shoulder level. That's, it will survive "face-down drops" from "1.6 meters" on rough surfaces 80% of the time.

Vice president and general manager, Corning Gorilla Glass John Bayne talked about the Gorilla Glass 5 below

“With each successive generation of Corning Gorilla Glass, we have taken cover glass technology to new levels. Gorilla Glass 5 is no exception, extending Corning’s advantage in drop performance over competitive glasses,”

“With many real-world drops occurring from between waist and shoulder height, we knew improving drop performance would be an important and necessary advancement.”

  2. wizy Abeg help me out concerning this etisalat BBLITE cuz I've wasted too much money already. The tweakware disconnects when the allocated 10mb gets exhausted and it won't connect again. Maybe the problem is from my own side, that's wat I want to figure out.
    This is d setting dat I use:
    Apn: blackberryx.net
    Proxy: 127.0.0.1
    Port: 8080
    And I use the premium version of tweakware.
    The above setting worked with the free server until the free server stopped connecting. So I paid for the premium version, and ever since then, it has not worked.
    Pls I need help. Tanks
