The field-induced, spontaneous, and isothermal transition from glassy state to long-range-ordered ferroic state in two physically parallel ferroic glasses (relaxor and strain glass) have been reviewed from the aspect of experimental characteristics. The similarities and differences between these two ferroic glasses from macroscopic to microscopic properties have been summarized. In addition, some interesting phenomena that deserve further investigations have been pointed out.
