How durable is Gorilla Glass Victus? This Galaxy Note 20 Ultra video explains


Last updated: August 18th, 2020 at 10:05 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the first smartphone to feature Gorilla Glass Victus. Corning, the company that makes this glass, says that Victus improves durability against both drops and scratches. Corning claims that scratch resistance has seen an up to 2x improvement compared to Gorilla Glass 6 while the scratch resistance is up to 4x better than competitive aluminosilicate glasses.

Is that enough to explain just how durable Gorilla Glass Victus is? Probably not. Most people would still want to see a visual representation of these improvements. This Galaxy Note 20 Ultra durability test provides just that.

How durable is Gorilla Glass Victus?

Performed by the inimitable JerryRigEverything on YouTube, this Galaxy Note 20 Ultra durability test highlights the durability of Gorilla Glass Victus. It’s pertinent to note that Samsung ships these devices with a pre-installed screen protector. This adds an additional layer of protection against scratches.

Mohs mineral picks are used to find out the range at which the glass will scratch. Scratches appear on Gorilla Glass Victus at a level 6 with deeper grooves appearing at a level 7. In case you were wondering, the Gorilla Glass 6 on the Galaxy Note 10+ also scratched at a level 6. This doesn’t mean that Victus isn’t better, it just signifies the limitations of the Mohs picks used for these tests.

Do keep in mind that Corning’s 4x improved scratch resistance claim for Victus is made against regular glass, not Gorilla Glass 6. The Mohs scale is just a rough test to find the difference between materials like plastic, glass and sapphire. Gorilla Glass Victus is still glass, no matter how better it is at handling scratches, which is why scratches appear at a level 6.

The rest of the durability test is carried out in the YouTuber’s typical style. Plenty of pain is inflicted on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and it holds up very well. It’s quite an interesting watch, check it out below.
