    I just noticed it looks like MS changed the specs to Gorilla Glass 3??
    Strange, can anyone verify if the 1st wave of 950XL's were sent out with GG 3 or 4??

    it was supposed to be gorilla glass 4 for the screen not sure why its changing for the XL all of a sudden the 950 that is sold through ATT has gorilla glass 3 however the XL was supposed to be 4. Some one correct me if I am wrong.

    It was and it was listed as Gorilla Glass 4 before, we had a discussion on this very subject weeks ago but it seems they changed the spec since then..

    Still listing the XL at Corning Gorilla Glass 3, I'm wondering if it was a supply problem or the people reporting a red shading on the lower part of the display??

    That's a good question, also when did they change this spec?? Can't believe they lowered specs to fill orders, kinda makes you wonder what else could be downgraded under the hood??

    Interesting. On the Microsoft Store site it says GG3,, but on the Microsoft site, it still says GG4. Somebody from Microsoft needs to answer what it actually is. If they sold it as GG4 and delivered it with GG3, that is false advertising. It would not have changed my decision to buy it, but changing the spec after I purchased it does not make me happy if it is true.

    Agreed... After you ordered they're Flagship Phone & they swap out the display glass which is the equivalent or the same of one of their display glass of their mid-range 640XL Phones just doesn't sit right with me to be honest...

    I suspect its probably just a typo. The XL is supposed to be Gorilla Glass 4.

    Just another reason. Maybe Microsoft is trying to disappoint us so it can stop developing phones and focus on making profits.

    Is this really a deal breaker for anyone? Any form of gorilla glass will order screen protection.

    Is it honestly a big deal or are we nitpicking?

    Gorilla Glass 4 is supposed to be a hair stronger but nobody can tell the difference. Actually they say it's twice as tough.

    I hope you are only speaking for yourself. Because only you can disappoint you. If Glass 3 in the XL is a deal breaker, don't get it if you are going to be disappointed. I still suspect its a typo but either way the good news is, you get to make the call here. Problem solved.

    Canadian store says Gorilla Glass 4. Anyways. The difference is really just in the thickness of the glass. You can get the same protection as gorilla glass 3 with a much thinner piece of glass.

    it doesn't matter Nexus 6P has a GG4 and it breaks with a feather! the differences are not that major, until someone challenges Gorilla Glass, the later will continue to lower the bar for what a Gorilla Glass can withstand.

    GG4 is more resistant to drops, but sacrifices scratch resistance to do so. GG3 is more scratch resistant. Higher numbers don't always mean better. Personally I'd rather have the scratch resistance.

    lol im the other way. id much prefer drop resistance.. the scratch resistance between gs3 and gs4 wouldnt be enough to matter.

    The scratches weaken the glass and make them prone to shatter long-term.

    95% of the time the crack start on the outside.. those are not due to scratches weakening the glass... lol can we find something we both agree on today? haha
