A lot has already been said about the Gorilla Glass cover on the iPhone 4 and 4S – they make for a tough, scratch-proof surface that’s good enough to keep your phone’s screen safe from everyday bumps and grinds. But here’s a way to make it tough enough to survive way more than the keys and coins in your pocket: the Buff screen protector. Built with four layers that offer different forms of protection (for absorbing blows, dispersing chock, elasticity and air bubble-dispersion), the Buff protector is evidently as good as advertised, shown in a video that involves an iPhone being hit (repeatedly) by a coffee mug, a hammer, and a thrown brick. Check it out after the break.
It certainly looks like something we’d need. Not that we constantly find ourselves in situations where our phone meets a hammer, but you never know. Unfortunately, we have no idea how or where to get this (or for how much). The Buff website has no pricing or availability info.
