    Hi all!

    As the thread title says, does the L950 come with Gorilla glass 3 or Gorilla glass 4?

    The Microsoft store still shows GG4 for L950, while country specific links including the ones in UK and India show GG3.

    Can someone confirm it officially from Microsoft?

    MODS:- Please move this thread if there's already a discussion on this.

    Thanks!

    It's GG 4, goto the MSFT page for confirmation.

    I see the Microsoft Store listing as showing GG3 for the Lumia 950. See below and scroll down the page a little:
    Microsoft Lumia 950 Features - Microsoft - USA

    OK - just to add to the confusion :)
    I checked the microsoft US store website for the UNLOCKED and ATT 950 both show Gorilla Glass 4
    Buy Microsoft Lumia 950 ? Unlocked - Microsoft Store
    Buy Microsoft Lumia 950 - Microsoft Store

    The other links i provided earlier are for the non-store, but specifications site for the 950 on the US and UK sites...

    GG (Good GAWD) :)

    I just tweeted Gabe about this pointing out the disparity in information. I don't know if he'll answer, but I figured it was worth a shot.

    Poor Gabe. I don't Twit, but from what I hear the guy never gets a break from his Twit acct.

    Isn't he software?

    Is there not a more specific hardware person that it would more appropriate to FaceTwitGramSnapG+ ???

    Would be really disappointing if L950 actually comes with GG3.

    Just look at how Sony came out with the Z5 line up, compromised nothing with the Z5 compact model when compared with Z5. Already they have plonked in the 808 processor, though I don't have any issues with that, as even my 3 yr old L920 with S4 processor is sufficiently fast for daily usage with W10 latest build for insiders.

    But there is definitely distinctness in properties between GG3 and GG4, and it would definitely make difference during accidental falls. I hope MSFT is not compromising on this in the name of cost-saving!

    The Z5 Compact has 2GB RAM instead of 3GB.

    How to check that the glass is really GG4 or GG3 if you doubt the specs on a store site?

    I may be wrong but I believe the 3 is better scratch resistant and the 4 is better crack resistant

    For those who already received their L950; What does the box and or documentation say about Gorilla Glass?

    The microsoft.com website says GG3 and the microsoftstore.com website says GG4...

    I know, but even in the reviews from various websites which came online today the reviewers don't know for sure. Some say GG3 and some GG4...

    I'd be inclined to believe what Daniel Rubino says, if it's GG3 then it's GG3.

    And what about WMPU?
    The 950 also comes equipped with the latest that Corning has to offer with Gorilla Glass 4, which is virtually unscratchable.

    There are a few people who can give the right answer; The people who have the L950, but only if Microsoft mentioned it on the box or in the included documents...
