This month, we’re excited to partner with our friends at Corning Incorporated again for a sponsored trip to Arizona while we share the amazing Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ equipped with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 (see our disclosure statement here), which dramatically improves protection against drops.

The next question, of course, is – who’s traveling with us?

We’re excited to welcome our travel-loving friends (all powerful women, mind you) to the Gorilla US team. Check them out and stay tuned as our adventure begins TODAY.
