All three Galaxy S22 models will use a new Gorilla Glass Victus+

14 January 2022
The original Victus was unveiled a year and a half ago and the Galaxy Note20 Ultra was the first to use it.

Anonymous, 17 Jan 2022The fact is that both of them are cheap materials. When you... moreYeah, that's what I'm saying. Glass is more expensive to make than plastic, but that doesn't necessarily mean it feels more premium. In fact, I'll bet you if you did a blind smartphone back test, and put two phone, one with frosted glass and the other frosted plastic back, they wouldn't be able to tell the difference. They are just suckers to their MIND, just like expensive wine buyers are -> they see expensive price tag, automatically in their mind they assume quality before they even test out the product.

RandyRiffin, 15 Jan 2022Yet, according to others, plastic is cheaper than glass. Or... moreThe fact is that both of them are cheap materials. When you compare two cheap things, most of the time, one thing will be cheaper because it's likely that the prices won't be identical, but it doesn't mean that the less cheap one is "premium." Generally, it's more expensive to manufacture glass because it requires more energy. There is nothing fancy about it.

no, just the base s21 has a plastic back.

Is there really any much improvement with Victus+? I still expect JerryRig to say his quintessential "scratches at a level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7" phrase with these phones.

Also, I really miss the matte-plastic backs of the Nexus 5 & 9, as well as the old Nokia Lumia phones. Those felt nice. Oh and aluminum, I miss aluminum backs too. OnePlus 3/3T had some of the nicest aluminum unibody design I've ever seen.

What happens more often, scratches that annoy you through entire use of device or that one potential hypothetical drop that may or may not shatter it? I never shattered a single piece of glass on any phone. They were all pretty badly scratched from just stuff in pockets and on other surfaces.

>But even if they use an older version of Gorilla Glass for the rear panel, it will still be an upgrade over the S21 and S21+, which got plastic backs

Glass licking loser.

Plastic best 👌 Glass is bad

GG3 was pretty prone to scratches, but with GG5, I have one tiny little scratch after 3 years. Guess these newer GGs are even better
