    Default Scratches on glass

    I know I should have a screen protector, but I never got one and I notice I have a few scratches on the surface now. With the gorilla glass is this such a rare issue that I should be fine as long as I am careful. I hate screen protectors.

    I hate screen protectors and have NEVER had a scratch on any phone screen. But that is because I always carry them in a protective belt holster. Most people that end up with scratches have them because of a drop or because they carry them in a non-empty pocket or purse.

    Gorilla glass, like on the Evos, helps... but nothing can prevent all scratches on glass when the screen comes into contact with hard objects (especially metals).

    Or sand. A single grain in your pocket or purse can do a ton of damage to any screen (gorilla glass, or not).

    Imaging leaving your screen unprotected with your keys in the same pocket/purse. Those sharp edges will have a field day on the screen.

    I bought a Zagg a few weeks back and have removed it several times trying to get it right, but I am amazed at how good the screen looks underneath compared to the first EVO LTE I had replaced with no screen protector everytime I take it off. They are expensive but I am now a believer.

    Sand is the bog one. Most people think the scratches come from coins or keys, but that is rarely the case. Most keys and coins are not hard enough to scratch regular glass, let alone GG, without major pressure. 99% of scratches come from sand. There's grit everywhere. Also explains all the people who complain of scratches that have never had the phone come in contact with keys or coins.

    Try the SGP Ultra Crystal. Best screen protectors on the market bar none. Completely clear and feels like glass
