    Sapphire on phone's screens?

    I saw an article saying that sapphire prices are dropping and it may be used to protect phone's screens.
    That could mean smartphone screens that donít crack when you drop them and canít be scratched with keys, or even by a concrete sidewalk.
    But the material is more brittle than Gorilla Glass...

    I just want to point out that the iPhone 5 already uses sapphire to protect it's camera lens.

    Which one would you want and do you think such material will be used to replace Gorilla Glass?

    If the material is more brittle than Gorilla Glass, wouldn't that mean it's more likely to break or shatter if you drop your phone? I'm pretty sure I have Gorilla Glass on my phone at the moment and I don't have any issues with it. I say, why fix it if it isn't broken?

    I can see them using sapphire on watches ,but never on phones. The price may be dropping on sapphire ,but phone makers will continue to use what is the absolutely the cheapest for then to maximize there profits. If phone makers were to use sappire they could just pass the price increase over to the consumer as well.
