Driven by curiosity: Is it only me or is it the glass actually?

Hi,

every time I touch the Gorilla glass of the DM42 screen I think..."...that feels somehow different...somehow 'smoother'".
(compared to ordinary glass of a window...that one without that gorilla...you know... :) )

Based on physically parameters ;) gorilla glass should feel much harder...in my opinion.
Instead it feels (at least for me) somehow smoother, softer...more "silky"...(oh what a crazy attempt of a non-native speaker
to find words for SUCH a topic :) )

Is it just me, /knowing/ that it is 'better" glass than ordinary window glass...and therefore /has to/ feel somehow different (selective perception)...or am I not alone? Is it real?

AH! By the way: Position your DM42 in a way so that sun light (which is nearly parallel) falls onto the Gorilla glass and is reflected back to
a distant, plane object...the ceiling of the room for example.
The reflected light forms a nearly perfect rectangle.
THIS glass is more plane than the mirror in my bathroom!

Cheers!

On any given day or time the natural oil on your finger can vary...(You may have just washed ones hands etc). So the feel at a given time really does not mean much...
