Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

    I broke two gorrilla glass screens on my Dell Streak 5 inch.  The second one I broke just trying to put the phone back together after replacing the first broken screen.  One clip out of place and the Gorilla Glass cracked the LCD.

    I've seen many a gorilla glass screen drop on the side of the display to leave nasty cracks. Essentially, its weak point is around the edges, and when pressure is applied there it will shatter, this is the same basic principle which is seen in armor plated glass; where a knock to the side shatters the glass. Unfortunately, when dropping a device, it is highly likely that it lands on its edge.
