    Let's go through everything in case people miss some points here.

    1. Gorilla glass is 'toughened' glass but it's still glass
    2. Glass when scratched weakens, therefore it's quite possible to break Gorilla Glass just like any other glass.
    3. Glass on our phones is curved and square, therefore hitting it on a weird angle on a corner is likely to break it.
    4. Our phone backs are polycarbonate and flexes. In most cases this helps with impact however on a corner impact it's likely to cause more damage to be done rather than less.
    5. As long as we use glass on a phone that is inflexible it's highly likely we'll continue to see broken screens on all mobile phones.

    That is all.

    I'm a similar situation here. Dropped on concrete, landed on upper-right corner and the glass has broken. I sent it in service and waiting for diagnose. Have you replaced the screen yet? Did you noticed any differences between original and repaired one?
