[Announcement] Gorilla Glass or Tempered Glass ? Which one do you prefer in your Mi Max 2

Hey MI Fans,
After purchasing my Mi Max 2 I am confused whether to use a  Tempered glass to protect my phone from ant external damage and from scratches. Here I am giving you a brief explanation between Gorilla Glass in Mi Max 2 and Tempered Glass.


What is Gorilla Glass ???



Gorilla Glass is a scratch-resistant and durable glass product from Corning that is used to protect the screens of tablets, smartphone, and other mobile devices. The glass is lightweight, strong and compatible with touchscreen technologies. As a result of its strength, screens made of Gorilla Glass can be very thin. Gorilla Glass was first implemented in a mobile device screen in 2007, in the original iPhone.


  Gorilla Glass is made from chemically strengthened alkali-aluminosilicate. The product’s strength is a result of the ion exchange process the glass undergoes during manufacturing. Once the glass has been manufactured, it is dipped in a bath of molten salt. Potassium ions from the salt bath are exchanged for smaller sodium ions in the glass. After the glass cools, the larger ions are packed tightly together, resulting in a deep layer of compression starting at the surface of the glass. The glass derives its strength from this layer of compression and is less likely to suffer a serious break if the mobile device is dropped. If the glass does become scratched, this layer of compression keeps the scratch from worsening.



What is Tempered Glass?



Tempered glass is about four times stronger than "ordinary," or annealed, glass. And unlike annealed glass, which can shatter into jagged shards when broken, tempered glass fractures into small, relatively harmless pieces. As a result, tempered glass is used in those environments where human safety is an issue.
