Starting today, Corning® Gorilla® Glass is bringing selected travelers to traverse steep canyons, access ancient ruins and take in the stunning views. And their journeys will be captured on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, made with Gorilla Glass 4. Such tough terrain requires a tough device.

Gorilla Glass is the cover glass that has been used on nearly 4 billion devices. It helps protect your devices from everyday wear and tear. But because Corning learned through research that consumers’ #1 complaint was screens breaking from drops, Corning's top scientists performed thousands of hours of tests to understand how and why glass breaks when dropped. Then they developed a way to deliver dramatically improved performance against drops on rough surfaces. The result? Gorilla Glass 4. It dramatically improves protection against drops and the damage that comes with the everyday use (not to mention travel-related use) of your smartphones and tablets. 

Corning Incorporated scientists replicated common drop situations in their lab to create Gorilla Glass 4, a cover glass that survives up to 80 percent of the time when dropped from 3 feet onto rough surfaces. And now, our travelers are taking on a tough journey to breathtaking desert destinations including the Betatakin Ruins, Alstrom’s Point, and the Slot Canyons — all iconic landmarks where Arizona borders southeast Utah in the Navajo Nation. With the help of Gorilla Glass 4, they have a smartphone that's tough enough for this trip to take beautiful photos and videos to share with us.

By following along on this journey, you can enter to win prizes – a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ of your own as well as Cataract Canyon Whitewater Rafting. So, follow @CorningGorilla on Twitter and come back here to experience this tough journey brought to you by Gorilla Glass 4.
