Samsung’s new Galaxy S24 Ultra has employed a new exotic material and an improved screen protector from Corning. It’s the first and only Samsung phone so far to boast a titanium frame and Gorilla Glass Armor screen protection.

The new Armor glass has better anti-reflective properties, and according to Corning and Samsung, Armor also provides higher scratch protection. But how resistant is Glass Armor against a Mohs’ Hardness Test Kit? Well, now you can find out. YouTuber PBKReviews performed the Mohs’ Hardness Test on both the titanium frame and the Glass Armor panel of the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Although we don’t have a point of comparison for how much more scratch-resistant the titanium frame might be compared to Armor Aluminum, the Glass Armor screen protector certainly looks more resistant than Victus 2. The latter screen protection was used by the Galaxy S23 Ultra and is still being used by the Galaxy S24 and S24+.

Story continues after the video

According to the YouTuber’s tests, the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s Gorilla Glass Armor protection scratches at level 8 using Mohs’ Hardness Test Kit. Maybe at level 7, but the marks were so faint at this level that the camera couldn’t pick them up.

Galaxy S24 Ultra Armor protection is real

For context, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s Victus 2 glass starts showing scratches at level 6 using the Mohs’ Hardness Test Kit. And we expect the Galaxy S24 and S24+ to post similar results, given that they use the same protection.

For what it’s worth, the titanium frame — or frame’s coating — is resistant enough to prevent scratches at level 4. However, marks start to appear at level 5 and up. But aside from scratch resistance, the titanium proves to be quite effective against drops.

In conclusion, Glass Armor does indeed seem to offer more protection against scratches than Glass Victus 2. This is all great news for people who might want to use these expensive phones without a case and additional screen protectors or for anyone planning to use them for a long time — now that Samsung offers seven OS upgrades.

To top it all off, even though the Galaxy S24 Ultra appears to be built like a tank, it still earns a near-perfect repairability score. It’s a good time to be a Samsung fan.
