    i've only had my htc one M8 for a week at most and i have at least 5 minor scratches on the end of the device and around 2 very small circle scratches in the middle they don't really bother me as i can only see them at the right angle in sunlight but it still bothers me that it scratches so easily i don't put it in my pocket or put it on a table face down and yet i have so many minor scratches does anyone else have the same problem

    I found two minor scratches when I was putting on my screen protector. It sucks. I have scratches on all my phones and I'm extra careful where my bare screens end up.
    People bring this up all the time. The thing is, you have to remember that anything harder than the glass on your phone can and will scratch it. No matter how small it may be. There's particles everywhere that you don't know about that are harder than glass. Its inevitable that your glass will scratch without a screen protector.

    sorry to hear your story, but most people put on a screen protector, so now you know better than to go nude.

    That's really weird, I literally just took my pocket knife and scratched the screen a little bit & got nothing, can you get it replaced?

    I went two years with no protector on my One X and not a single scratch. I don't expect to get one on the M8 either. Gorilla III is great stuff. With that said, if you are getting scratches, it has to do w/ the way you use your phone and you may benefit form a protector. That goes for ANY phone you use as the M8 is not any more susceptible to scratching than most flagship phones (being that most of them use the same glass).

    It is weird, I went to YouTube and watched a couple of videos of scratch tests of Gorilla glass 3. It seems really durable and resistant to scratches.

    no issues here and I've owned the phone since april 4th.

    putting it face down can cause that

    Neither have I. I've never used any sort of screen protector on any of my phones and I've never had any scratches on a screen. Nor have I ever cracked a screen.

    I have a regular screen protector on right now, but I will end up putting a tempered glass screen protector on it

    The Treo 650 was the last device I had that I used a screen protector with. Never had a scratched screen on any of my devices since.

    Sand will easily scratch your screen. It doesn't take much at all.

    Same here. I couldn't imaging putting something over these screens. I'd rather enjoy the full beauty and risk a scratch than to cover it up. Same reason I don't use cases.

    7 scratches in less than a week?! This is REAL hard to believe. I've never used a screen protector, and haven't scratched the screen on ANY of my phones in the past 5 years. I'd say I take my phone out of my pocket an average of 20 times a day, too. If you do the math, that's about 36,500 times I've taken my phone out of my pocket without ever scratching a screen. What the HECK is this guy doing to his phone?!!

    You see all these videos where they test it with keys, knives, or whatever. But what they never show is that a single grain of sand can be more destructive to your screen than all of those things combined.

    My guess is maybe OP has some dirt or sand in his pocket - it only takes a few grains to really scratch your screen up.

    Well that would be an interesting test. Test with sandpaper.

    EEEK! Keep it away from sand. I have had mine for 14 days now (it's a keeper) and don't use a screen protecter. No noticeable signs on my screen. Eventually i may get protection, but i just like the look and feel of going nekkid.
