Does the 6T have Gorilla Glass on the rear as well?
also wondering about this. I haven't shelled out the extra cash for a case yet and I'm semi worried.
however the glass back is toooooo smooth and nice in the hand.
Gorilla glass or not. It doesn't matter. It is glass and it will break on impact. Invest on a case and tempered glass and have a peaceful life.
It's much stronger than regular glass... and finding this out was the point of my post lol, but thanks though.
I'm curious about that too.
I've been using a Nexus 6P until I got my 6T today. Both phones use gorilla glass and with the older tech on the Nexus it held up to dozens of major drops and hundreds of minor drops. I mean, i really put it through its paces and it never shattered. It did however scratch a little, but, not due to being dropped. I wouldn't worry about this phone too much either because the newer glass is supposed to be even better. I don't plan on using anything more than the case that came with the 6T either. That's how much confidence I have in the gorilla glass .
As far as I know the front is gorilla glass 6 but the back is still 5. Can't seem to find a sauce right now though, will be back if I can.
This is from the 6T spec page. I think, based on this NOT specifically saying the rear is also Gorilla Glass 6.... I'm guessing it's probably not.
I can confirm it. The front is GL 6 and the back GL 5.

front is gorilla glass 6 and rear is not..
