I know the phone supposidly has gorilla glass but its not as good as what I thought. I had an evo for three weeks and traded it in for an epic. I love this phone but the glass scratches easier than the evo did. I am very careful with my phones very ocd about keeping them clean and in three wks the evo looked perfect. I cleaned my epic screen with my microfiber cloth and saw a couple scratches around the bottom buttons and a couple on the upper screen. Its not big scratches and can only see them in direct light but the screen isn't as good as I thought. Also what do you all clean your screens with? I have some spray I bought at best buy called iklean and it says its made for the ipad and iphone. I was using it for my evo but I don't know if I should with this screen. Thanks all.

I don't know how they got there I haven't dropped it or anything. I keep it in a pocket by itself and no one else uses it. Just me. I was actually surprised when I saw them. I can't even tell they are there it's just the fact. I hate to have scratches on my phone at all u know. Do u all use anything better than iklean cause it seems like when I use it it smears on the screen unless I'm using to much. Anything better that you all know about? Thanks

There was a post about someone keeping diamond earrings in the same pocket as their Epic and it got scratched up - any jewelry make contact with your phone?

I use a microfiber cloth multiple times a day. The cloth was likely contaminated with some material that scratched the glass. Something abrasive obviously. Throw the cloth in with the wash. NO FABRIC SOFTENER! Then Line dry it. It'll be good as new. I Buy em from Harbor Freight, a pack of 6 for 3 or 4 bucks. Which reminds me I need more.....LOL.Joe-KC2UUZ

There was a huge debate about this over in the EVO forum. Most of these new phones have some type of scratch resistant glass, even if it's not actually "Gorilla Glass". They are not scratch PROOF though. There are the videos going around where people take things like knives and razor blades to their screen and it doesn't scratch, that's because the glass is harder than those items. There are plenty of items out there that are harder than the glass and will scratch your screen. Something as tiny as a grain of sand can cause serious scratches and can come in contact with your screen without you even knowing it.

Well here is how I damaged a pair of sunglasses once. I went to the beach and used a microfiber cloth while on the sand. When I used it the next day on a pair of sunglasses that I didn't take to the beach it scratched it up. A small amount of sand had blown onto the cloth a messed up my glasses. Could happen with a phone to.

So from personal experience, i would say its a pretty safe bet the epic has gorilla glass.
