Best answer

After a long time research scientists at  Corning came up with Gorilla Glass.Corning makes keystone components that enable high-technology systems for consumer electronics, telecommunications, mobile emissions control, and life sciences.

Devices that use gorilla glass is shown here.

Features of Gorilla glasses :

Benefits
• Enhanced retained strength after use
• High resistance to scratch and sharp contact damage
• Improved drop performance
• Superior surface quality

Applications
• Ideal protective cover for electronic displays in:
 - Smartphones
 - Laptop and tablet computer screens
 - Mobile devices
• Touchscreen devices
• Optical components
• High strength glass articles

Alternatives ?

GT Advanced Technologies, is one firm that operates the production of the sapphire crystalline glass thinner even than today's iteration of Gorilla Glass.

While there is a competitor for gorilla glasses,its an early time to find the best in the lot.

Screen protectors :

A screen protector is an additional sheet of material—commonly polyurethane or glass—that can be attached to a screen of an electronic device and protect it against physical damage.(wikipedia)

There are three varieties - PET film, TPU (polyreuthane), and our undisputed favorite - tempered glass. And then there are two methods to get them on your display – dry and wet. 

PET (polyethylene terephthalate):
If you have a cheaper or older phone, or you're fine with the most basic and affordable screen protection, get a PET protector. The manufacturer doesn't really matter, but if you have a soft spot for a particular brand, there's no reason not to go with theirs. Chances are that protectors from established brands will be better cut-out for your device and won't leave loose edges that can catch on to your clothes and peel the protector away.

TPU (thermoplastic polyreuthane)
If you are willing to pay a slightly higher price, a TPU protector is, logically, better choice than PET film. At the very least, it's going to provide better impact protection (although you shouldn't be pushing your chances).

TEMPERED GLASS :
tempered glass protectors are the most expensive kind. Most renowned brands can charge up to $40 for their products. And although that's money well spent if you are rocking an expensive flagship smartphone, excellent tempered glass protectors can be found for less than $15 online.
