Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra – Things will never be the same…

Galaxy S24 Ultra Titanium! Apple did it first and I don't
care who imitates them because titanium is the law. It is used on spacecraft,
inside the body and on wheelchairs. It is very light,
very strong and very legal. And I'm very interested
in these high-tech things. Samsung did not say what grade of
titanium they use for the S24 Ultra. Apple immediately said that their
iPhone 15 is grade five titanium, and it turns out it is…
At least this part that's left of it. Let us know in the comments if you think we
should take titanium out of the S24 Ultra. We'll talk
more about titanium in a minute. Samsung also
said, during the announcement, that they are using a new glass
called Corning Gorilla Armor. It can reportedly reduce
screen glare by 75%, which apparently helps
optical clarity. Whatever they've done
seems to be working. When
we compare the S24 Ultra with the Note 10 Plus, a big
difference in reflection is clearly visible. The S24 Ultra eliminates glare so much
that we can count light diodes, while on the Note 10 Plus with its five-
year-old Gorilla Glass, we only see a white rectangle.

So far I haven't noticed that
some of my LEDs have burned out. Well done, Corning.
Thumbs up for that. Glare reduction is a big deal for
people who go out into the daylight, if it's daylight. Although Samsung hasn't
changed the design too much, they have changed the material it
's made of. At first touch or glance, the average
person probably wouldn't notice the difference. Only a slight difference in color
and a significant difference in price. The aluminum rod on the left
cost me $10, and the second stage titanium rod
on the right cost me $170.

It really is a premium product. We 'll see if the titanium
makes the Ultra more durable or not. With the new Gorilla Armor
over the 120Hz AMOLED display, which Corning calls the
toughest Gorilla Glass ever and claims it has four times
the resistance of other glasses when it comes to
micro scratches… Which you can get from dust,
keys or coins in your pocket. And maybe they're right. When I reach the sixth and seventh
hardness on the Mohs scale, lines start to appear
on the phone. But I feel them differently. Otherwise I can feel the tip of the tool
scratching the glass as it breaks through the surface. But this time, I see lines
that cannot be erased, but I don't feel the same
scratching and catching or deeper cuts that I feel on
other phones, from level seven all the way to level eight
in this case. This time I think Gorilla Armor
gives us level seven scratches with deeper
level eight nicks.

But I'm not sure what
happens to the features at level six. I thought it might
be from the oleophobic coating, but that coating would evaporate under the flame of the
lighter, and these lines still remain. My guess is that since I
didn't feel the tool scratch the glass, it's probably
material transfer. The tool is scraped and attached to the
surface like a marker or chalk. If only we had a microscope for a
more detailed analysis of the scratches.

Oh wait… We have. I'm trying to see the
markings at level six, it 's a little harder to focus the surface of the glass
and not through the glass to the pixel. But the marks on the glass
look very smooth, indicating no
damage to the surface. At level seven we can
see several indentations where the tool has pierced
the surface of the glass. And on level eight we can see the
pieces of glass that Mohs' tool destroyed. So, yes. That's my conclusion. Level six is ​​actually fine. Scratches only start at level seven,
with deeper cuts at level eight. That changes things. The reduction of micro scratches
is quite important because
real cracks can form from small irregularities. The 12-megapixel front camera
is also protected by Gorilla Armor. That camera is located under the
thin speaker opening. As for scratches on the titanium,
it has a level 6 resistance…
