    Default Screen not Gorilla Glass?

    Reason I ask is I just switched over to Android from iPhone (5+ years) and all after 3 days I have noticed the screen is VERY scratched (not deep) all over the place. I keep the phone in my pocket (free from change or keys most of the time) with all of the iPhones I have had - I have never seen a screen like this (note I did drop an iPhone once and it spidered).

    Am I being a bit over optimistic or should I just STFU :-)

    oh - I have a Optimus G on AT&T and I assume the Nexus 4 has the same screen/problems?

    Do you have pictures? It happens but it shouldn't be that bad.. Is there a button on your pants above the pocket that your screen may be hitting? That's what happened to my old one.

    According to LG website, it has GorillaGlassII. I don't know much about the second version of Gorilla Glass, maybe they went cheaper on it?

    It's in the scrolling box features.

    Found more on Gorilla Glass 2


    FAQs LINK:

    How is Corning Gorilla Glass 2 different?

    Gorilla Glass 2 can be up to 20 percent thinner than the original, but still just as tough. This exceptional thinness enables greater design possibilities for slimmer and sleeker devices with brighter images and improved touch sensitivity. Gorilla Glass 2 is elegant and lightweight, but scratch resistant and durable enough to withstand the unexpected abuses of everyday life.

    I carry mine in my pocket all the time, and have had no issues with scratching yet.

    Thanks for the research/link Agimax... Makes it sound like they didn't cheap out, just provided the same strength in a thinner package. Makes sense with this thin phone.

    That's what screen shields are for. I always put one on each time I buy a new phone.

    No issues here and mine is usually shoved into my purse or coat pocket. No screen protector.

    I always use a screen protector and a case and after 1.5 or 2 years my phones look very close to being new. It's a small price to pay to protect the investment in the phone.

    These guys have a good screen protector! I believe they just got the screen protector for the G on their website
    Filled in the scratches on my phone.
