Abstract
This is a Master Thesis about the use of mineral glass in mobile phone front windows. A
brief introduction to glass as a material and its behavior is followed up by our own
research and investigations. We have looked at existing and unreleased phones from Sony
Ericsson that use or will use mineral glass. We have also examined some competitor
phones. All gathered information was analyzed, sorted and represented as a display
guideline with the main purpose to avoid mistakes from being repeated in future
development processes. The work has primarily dealt with the prevention of glass
cracking in the fall tests. Based on our findings we have suggested modifications that
would decrease the risk of glass failure and have... (More)

would decrease the risk of glass failure and have physically modified prototypes and
analyzed them in free fall tests. We evaluated the results from these tests and with
research drew conclusions and recommendations. (Less)
