I unfortunately had a nose bleed and a drop of blood fell on the Gorilla Glass screen of my Samsung Galaxy S i9000.

I used one of these wet wipes on the screen, then wiped it off with a damp paper towel. http antibac.no/alias.html?id=1034312

The solvent contains denatured alcohol, glycerol and is meant as a hand sanitizer. Now I'm worried that I've damaged the glass or Super AMOLED on the phone. Have i damaged the screen/gorilla glass?

its very very very hard to damage the screen. so if you don't see any damage then its okay.

It's a form of hardened glass, not a plasticky gimicky display.

If you wouldn't expect standard glass to be damaged, you wouldn't expect this to be...

I've read different places that they have thin plastic film over the screens on various glass displays. Well the phone looks and behaves in perfect condition, I love my Galaxy S!

Yea, it's fine, don't worry you'll give yourself a nosebleed.

i didn't have any nose bleeds

the sides and corners gathered quite a bit of dirt.

Just get a decent micro-fibre cloth for cleaning the screen.

Works for me ...

I can't answer your question about possible damage but I can tell you what works for me.

I normally use either glasses cleaner (alcohol based) or my own solution of about 50/50 isopropyl alcohol and distilled water with a lens tissue. When I'm on the go I use Optico cleaning wipes. They work really well but they are a little more expensive than the aforementioned wipes & glasses cleaner method. http://www.optico.ca/eng/products_optico_list_1.php

I'm on my second Galaxy S but both phones never had a single scratch or damage. I love Gorilla Glass!

I used to get them a lot when I was a kid, rarely happens anymore... maybe a bit too much information for this forum?

It's a great phone, BEST phone I've owned. I only wish the battery cover was of as solid material as the rest of the phone.
