Think of like your windshield, multiple layers bonded together with glue making it very strong. Same principle. It will be stronger. Not indestructible, just much stronger. Lookup Sears Tower glass box, glass is extremely strong. Gorilla glass 2 is very durable on its own, but they are using a thinner sheet compared to the original GG, resulting in no real improvement other than it is lighter. At $200 to replace glass on the HOX, $30 to reduce the chances of this happening is well worth it. I have never broke a screen before, but I don't want to start now. Knock on wood.
