    Default scratch proof

    hi,

    this razor..is it really scratch proof? granted thats probably a little exaggerated, but at the same time I was told that I really dont need a shell case for it as it is designed to be pretty durable..

    Even Gorilla Glass isn't immune to scratches but they tend to be very small and hard to see when they do happen. At least if my old Droid X was any indication. That said, scratches are pretty uncommon. I can say that my Razr has survived two beer spills on it without any problems!

    Hardly scratch proof. I take care of my phone and still managed the pickup scratches on the backside. Moto's biggest mistake with the hardware was going with a shiny plastic instead of soft touch.

    My screen is protected under a screen protector. I stopped believing in gorilla glass since my tbolt. The dont make it like they used to it seems.

    Not scratch proof at all. I did a small scratch test to see if it was and i regret it cus i made a few scratches with my keys. Galaxy tab had way better gorilla glass. I scratches that thing with keys knives and stuff and it is good.

    I would say it is highly exaggerated. I can show you scratches on mine. Apparently it looks really hard but my experience is it is not as hard as they advertise.

    Really wow...................
    Now see thats a plus in my book because doo doo happens.
    Cnet did a test on the Razr and ran it under water for a bit and it still worked.
    If someone has a glass of something on the table I will take my device
    off because I worry about spills........

    If you don't know what you're talking about than don't say it. Do a Google search for Corning Gorilla Glass and go to their website. Look at the list of products that feature it and the Thunderbolt is clearly listed.

    The gorilla glass on my DX and Transformer works great. If the Tbolt really does have it, corning should pull their name from it. Every Tbolt I've seen look trashed.

    Doesn't matter...the Tbolt was a garbage phone. They probably used low quality Gorilla Glass on it.

    Yeah I was one of the ones that thought Gorilla Glass was for the most part unscratchable. Not so on my Bionic. Granted, it's only a small, light scratch, but still. I had both the OG Droid and Thunderbolt without screen protectors and no scratches on either. I just noticed the scratch on my Bionic today and i have no clue how it happened either!

    Yes it does, check Cornings web site, it is certainly listed right there...but on the same side the screen scratched super easy.

    All glass can scratch. Doesn't really matter what they call it.

    they have never advertised gorilla glass as being scratch "proof"...gorilla glass is advertised as being scratch "resistant"...there is no such thing as scratch proof right now

    Judging by the number of cracked and smashed iPhones, even if Gorilla Glass is scratch-proof, it's sure as f*** not shatter proof!

    Maybe it's just my stupid logic but I think if you be careful with your phone and don't treat it like car-keys, you wouldn't need Gorilla Glass.

    The iPhone doesn't use Gorilla Glass. At all.

    I know what u mean. On my Nokia n97 the sliding cover was really close to the lens that I had a little dust inside and it scratched the lens. It annoyed me cus i saw a slight blur on every picture.
