My understanding is the Z uses Dragontrail on the front.
With Gorilla Glass on the rear.
Apparently the reason for the rear being Gorilla Glass, it allows the different colour finishes the Z is available in.

Does the Xperia Z use both Dragontrail and Gorilla Glass?

I have taken the ZL to have the same glass as the Z.
Particularly as it uses the same protective shatterproof film arrangement
But unlike the Z, the ZL's Sony logo is embedded in the glass.

Well all the aricles on Internet are misleading about Z's display glass so I'm not sure about it but I guess front display glass of both should be same.
Apple & Blackberry are just fruits... Real smartphones run on Android!!

The back of the Z being Gorilla Glass is news to me but I can assure you that Sony doesn't use Gorilla Glass if so it being on the back of the Z then maybe but it's not on the front the Z or the ZL

Xperia SP uses gorilla glass. Says so on Sony site. It's kinda weird that SP has it and none of the other phones do. Maybe they are dragontail. I wish Sony would be specific about the glass.

Your right I forgot about the SP it does use Gorilla Glass it's strange the choices they make why only the SP I wish my Xperia T used it as well.

So we still don't know what's Zl's screen made of. It's weird that Sony makes it so hard to find out. It should be on the official specs page.

You know whats funny about that screen protector on Z, when you remove it the SONY logo goes off with it. Its printed on the screen protector... Not a case for ZL though.
