Personally, I haven't seen anything from Gorilla Glass to impress me in relation to impact resistance: a friend dropped his iPhone 4S and it shattered like, well, glass. I've dropped 2 HTC phones--Inspire and a One X--from about 3 feet (bumped off a bench). Both shattered. Both landed on their backs, do the screen wasn't even the point of impact. Scratch resistant, maybe (I don't put keys and my phone in the same pocket), but I've really been disappointed in its impact resistance. It'd be really nice to not have to use an Otter Box. They're ugly. But, I'm a klutz.
