Sapphire Crystal iPhone 6 Front Panel is Nearly Indestructible! [Video]

Sapphire Crystal iPhone 6 Front Panel is Nearly Indestructible! [Video]

Check out this new video from Marques Brownlee that stress tests a leaked sapphire crystal iPhone 6 front panel.

The 4.7" Apple iPhone 6 will have a sapphire crystal display made by $GTAT. Sapphire crystal is used in high-end watches & camera lenses already. Let's put it through its paces!

Brownlee attempts to scratch, bend, and break the glass panel; however, is unable to do so.

"At first I was kinda tentative because I thought maybe there was a chance I might break it, maybe shatter it, but I slowly realized that there is absolutely no way I can break this display under my own power. There's no chance. I have a feeling that I could drop a rock on it but really I couldn't get the surface to even scratch a little bit at all. The worst blemish on the surface was actually my fingerprint marks and dust from handling it so much."

every year we hear the same from all manufacturers. "we've got unscratchable/unbreakable glass." every year. you can go back in time in youtube videos if you want to follow the claims. just give me a good product that has a responsive digitizer.. that's all. thank you manufacturers.
