    Since I switch phones at least once a year, I'm not trying to hinder the design by putting on cases and screen protectors. To each their own, though.

    I'm the same way when it comes to phones but I put cases on my phones so they look brand new when I sell them

    I'm extra careful too. I haven't dropped a phone since my Palm Treo 700WX LOL. Now let me go find some wood to knock on!

    First thing I got for my DNA was a screen protector I don't trust the claims by Corning on its scratch proofness!

    In all fairness to Corning, the 'scratches' people usually see are on the coatings that sit on top of the glass, not the glass itself. (most of the hairline scratches are of that type)

    What are the odds! I picked up a new HTC One last week and have not even put it in my pocket as my case has not arrived yet. Today it spent about 2 hours in my........get this **sweatpants** cargo pocket and I just wiped it down with a microfiber cloth and noticed a nice 1/8th deep scratch on the edge of the screen............un-freaking real!

    And people dont believe me when I tell them small rock particles in dirt and dust as well as sand can and will end up in your pocket without your playing in a sandpit or collecting rocks. Sucks that happened to you new phone. But word of caution, gorilla glass can only be scratched by things harder than it. This does not include knives and keys, moreso rocks and sand. Even the smallest of particles.

    Obviously there was something in the pocket that wasn't supposed to be there.

    Sweatpants -- Not only are they tacky as heck, they tend to pick up and hold little bits of stuff in the pockets. The very fact that the pocket is "fluffy" inside causes them to hold onto tiny grains of sand, etc.

    Nothing is "scratch proof"....some things are more scratch resistant than others. A screen protector will make all the difference if you're at all concerned about scratching your phone's screen.
    It's either that or take your chances.

    I don't care about a few scratches, but one of the DNAs I had was scratched so deeply that it diffracted the light from the screen and produced distortion. Hence, I'm rocking a photodon protector and have been happy enough with it.

    I've had a screen protector on it since about a week after getting the phone. Yesterday my son took my phone from me and slid it across the floor, lifting up the edge of the protector and basically rendering it useless. So until I have the money to buy some new ones, I have to go without. It is putting me on edge, lol. Leaving my phone in the car this weekend when we go to the beach!

    it kind of irks me that people just expect no scratches whatsoever because it's gorilla glass.. i mean, if you really wanted a completely scratch proof material, go make a diamond screen.

    but that's just minor. my huge annoyance is people believing that a hard screen, a scratch resistant screen, won't ever shatter. it's glass. glass shatters. usually the harder a material is, the less energy required for it to fail (shatter, break, fracture). doesn't make sense to me that people think it's invincible.

    Hey to all non Corning workers.

    It seems to me that "some people" are attempting to missdirect the topic from the fact that Gorilla Glass 2 is waaaay worse than GG1 to a discussion about is it advertised as "unscratchable".

    My friends and me with Galaxy's S and S2 can (and did) kick the phones screen side down over concrete, keys and send for over a year, and screens are still mint. But now on my Nexus 4 and there S3, we all got a ton of scratches after only holding it in pants pocket for 2 weaks.

    Avoid GG2!

    I highly doubt you did that to your phone. And if you did, I highly doubt it was scratch free. Videos and pictures or I refuse to believe it. If you can't bother to put a screen protector on, dont complain when the glass scratches. Its GLASS, not diamond. It can and will be scratched by things harder than it on the moh scale.

    Lol, once again, not the point of how hard it is compareing to diamonds, but compareing it to GG1. Guess you didnt have 1 be4.
    Donno what is up with those testing videos, since some show that Nexus 4 has the back cover of same hardness as front (since someone sead that it is also gg2), and showing that thay can withstand the same beating as front, but LG denied it and sead that it is normal glass (and all buyers of N4 know how easy that side is to scratch).

    And yes, those phones did take all that. I can send you the pics. Some falls and kicks were so hard that even the color peeled off the plastic.
    I never used protecion covers on him since i knew I'll change him after a year or so. And my N4 is like your Droid ready to be changed after a month.

    Funny how there are no non Corning hardness test outhere...

    I only wish we knew that when we switched from gg1 phones.

    The harder a substance is the more brittle it is. That is common science. Feel free to post test videos and pictures of your phone that you supposedly kicked around. There are test videos for hardness of corning gorilla glass 2, a simple you tube search will bring you to one held at a convention where they used elevated platforms and weighted balls to test impact resistance. And as for my droid, I will be using it for two years, atleast. My mother had an s2, and by one month of ownership the screen was so badly marred she had it replaced and started using screen protectors. So I'm sorry if I don't believe that your phone was used as a personal soccer ball and withstood the abuse.

    hmm, only two posts, both in this topic... someone claiming to have literally kick their phone on concrete... i smell a hint of troll. kicking your phone generally isn't the smartest thing to do.

    I always base my phone purchases on the kicked on concrete test. I'm also fond of the underhand slow pitch and resistance to an aluminum bat test.

    I don't care what kind of phone you have, that's not how I judge someone's worth or intelligence.
