Difference Between Gorilla Glass 3 and 5

By: Bhagyta Gupta


Gorilla Glass 3 is like a tough shield that helps keep your phone’s screen free from scratches.


It has a special trick called NDR to make it even tougher against scratches.


Gorilla Glass 3 came out in 2013, and it’s made using a cool process that makes it three times stronger than before.


Gorilla Glass 5 is the newer shield, released in 2016, that’s really good at protecting your phone if you drop it.


It’s so strong that it can survive falls from about the height of a kitchen counter.


While Gorilla Glass 5 is great for drops, it’s not as scratch-resistant as Gorilla Glass 3.

Cheaper phones usually have Gorilla Glass 3, but if you spend more, you’ll find Gorilla Glass 5 on fancier phones.


Think of Gorilla Glass 3 as a tough screen protector that’s really good at keeping away scratches, like a superhero cape for your phone. But Gorilla Glass 5 is like a superhero suit that’s not only good at fighting scratches but also super strong against big falls.
