Phone Xperia L Glass/Protection

I was on an Xperia L fan page on FB & noticed a post mentioning that the Xperia L had a special type of glass. I did some research & checked the white paper & discovered that the L has "Schott 2nd source" glass which turns out to be darn good stuff. Schott is a German company which provides various products/services including toughened glass overlay. It is often competing with Corning to provide better product e.g. the toughened glass. Things like this just make me love my Xperia L even more .

Just thought it would be informative to share this because from my xperience (get it? ) Sony (Ericsson) often only mention scratch-resistant glass in many Xperia white papers.

If Sony's unfair...how's samsung?lg?

And about glass quality...yes,it might be resistant,but it's not as responsive and sensitive as other phones like galaxy express for example.
And you can't say that you can use XL w/o a screen protector in order to get better response from touch because of tough screen,because little scratches will always appear...
