[Poll] Would you pay more for a Galaxy S8 or S8+ with sapphire glass?

The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ are two of the most beautiful smartphones ever made, and (almost) everyone is awed by their design. The phones are expensive, and they feel premium thanks to their glass-and-metal build, but that also makes these phones more susceptible to drops. There’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as the rear of these smartphones, but it can shatter very easily if you drop the phone on a hard surface, especially since the Galaxy S8 is said to be the most fragile phone ever made.

I’ve protected my Galaxy S8+ with a Spigen Rugged Armor case, but it feels almost criminal to hide such a beautiful phone in a case. So, what’s the solution? Well, sapphire glass is said to be stronger than Gorilla Glass, but it costs a bomb and isn’t available in a capacity that would make it viable enough to be used as a Gorilla Glass 5 replacement. However, if Samsung decided to make a sapphire glass variant of the Galaxy S8, would you be willing to spend extra money to buy that variant for the assurance that the glass on the device won’t crack as easily it does right now?
