    Lots of folks are worried about the Nexus 4 glass screens. In case you guys were curious, here's my newly delivered Nexus 4 (both front and back) vs boxcutter, keys, coins, wrench.

    We're all sitting pulling our hair out just waiting to receive our phones, and you're doing plastic surgery on your newly acquired unit lol. You sir, are a bolder man than me. Does anyone have experience with Liquid Armor from Dynaflo?

    This video just proves to me that those reviewers claiming it getting scratched easily either have magic eyes or are full of bs. Thank you for the video sir, can't wait to ...order mine, haha.

    I was thinking as this started what he would be like if it broke... Traditionally in your pockets like keys, coins, box cutters... not sure where your from but you might get arrested for that. Least you didn't use your misses ring .

    Ya I usually balance my phone on the tip my miracle blade III knife!! Lol If u don't want it scratched get screen protectors and a case. I buy my things to use them I don't wrap my football up in plastics so the laces don't get dirty why would I cover up my beautiful phone.

    people that work in shipping, retail or grocery carry box cutters all the time.

    Edit, I suppose construction also.

    You put your own phone to the scratch test? You are a brave, brave, man. Videos like this just make me cringe. Nice video though

    True, but I doubt they are carried open with the blade exposed (at least not intentionally). Which leads me to a question for OP: Did you do the test with the sharp, exposed corner of the box cutter, or just the edge of the sheath? It's kind of hard to tell from the video.

    Also, gotta agree with your comment from the video: 0:27 - "I like 'em naked." Do you feel like you still have that "naked" feel with the bumper on?

    I don't understand why people don't just go to best buy and have them put a screen protector on the back. it's the same as the front! Come on,I just want a nexus. I can deal with a few hairline scratches.

    I guess I should not put my phone in the same pocket as the handful of diamonds I carry around. Bummer.

    Try the same test on a drinking glass. BTW how many drinking glasses have been dropped without breaking and look at the bottom of your glass drinking glasses and see how scratched up they are. something about this glass scratching, shatering and breaking stuff just doesn't make sense.

    I wonder why there is no sound?

    I can wave my hand over the phone with sharp objects as well.
