    Default Has Anyone Else's Screen Scatched Yet?

    Well I've had the phone for a little over a month and already have 2 tiny hairline scratches on the screen. I treat the phone with amazing care and keep it in a case all the time. I thought Gorilla glass was supposed to be really hard to scratch. I had an Evo without a case for a year and it was perfect. I know Sprint used to replace screens for people with TEP for a low cost/free and I was curious if they still do that. Thanks!

    My photon screen is still flawless, and let me tell you, this thing has seen some rough moments.

    I'm surprised to hear about scratches on the screen... I dropped mine (face first) for the first time yesterday and gotta say... no scratches or blemishes of any kind.

    My screen is flawless as I have had a screen saver on it almost from day one. I always use screen savers.

    Had my photon for 6 weeks now and dropped it once on concrete which landed on its screen. Still good as new for the screen/glass. Although the sides didn't take it as well.

    My phone has 1 very tiny scratch on it (hardly noticeable). I took it to Cancun last month and I must have gotten a grain of sand in my pocket....

    i thought this gorilla glass was unscratchable for the most part?...i also have 2 small scratches on my screen...my phone has yet to take a big drop *knock on wood*...just find it odd that the screen actually scratched...my old junk samsung transform didnt even have a scratch after a year of use

    What amazes me is people can't stand tiny screen scratches, but they can deal with an ugly screwed up screen savers peeling up with bubbles underneath.

    I have an otterbox defender series case which comes with a screen protector as part of the case (not glued on the device). Its kind of awesome.

    And I have a phantom skinz, which fits so well my husband couldn't tell it was there.

    No bubbles, no peeling.

    Have a bootleg screen protector on it right now. Its taken on a few scratches. I only do that because I am always on the go and putting my phone in pockets, the side of my gym bag, car cup holder, etc. I know its Gorilla glass I just dont want any scratches.

    Non of my screen savers have bubbled up. I used the invishield once and it was crappy, it couldn't withstand my cat chewing on it (it did protect my screen though). Since then I have used other screen savers that are almost not noticeable.

    Diamond particles in sand, diamond rings, etc. can and will scratch Gorilla Glass.

    I was about to trade my wife's evo 3d for a photon on Craigslist and didn't because it had a couple scratches on the screen. Weird ... I thought gorilla glass meant no scratches. ..mines perfect. I just hate having a screen protector that collects dust around the edges .

    As long as I sometimes use my Photon outdoors, it will have a screen protector on it (good ones installed correctly don't have bubbles).

    Gorilla glass is not, nor IIRC has Corning ever claimed it to be, scratch-proof. Scratch-resistant, yes. It would have to be diamond-like to be scratch proof.

    I don't have any scratches on my screen luckily and can't for the life of me put on a screen protector without having at least one bubble show up. I've tried I don't know how many times to install one but they always end up in a ball in my trash can.

    If you buy them at Sprint, they will usually install them free. Best buy will install them for a fee ($8 IIRC, which makes total price of a Zagg a ridiculous $28!) I find Zagg to be very time consuming and messy to install - but ended up with a perfect install on my Xoom. My first Zagg for a phone a few years ago ended up in a ball in the trash!

    I prefer the thicker stiffer ones. I normally use Seidio and install them myself in a humid bathroom. Usually have to use tape to lift a corner or a side a few times to get the remaining bubbles.

    As said a million times In many threads,, gorilla glass is scratch resistant,,,, not scratch proof. Also, someone in these forums turned me on to steinheil ultra crystal screen protector. This product is amazing. Looks and feels like glass. Goes on dry. You can take off and put back on unlike zagg. 2 pack for 13 dollars. I doubted this person who showed me this is and to this day I can't thank him enough.

    10.1/32 gig of fun!
    love my evo.

    I've managed to put a little tiny dent in my screen, I've dropped it three times tho, so now I have a screen protector on it, I'm not the most careful person when it comes to phones.
