    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!
    How's Gorilla Glass 3 in comparison?

    Gorilla glass 3 can probably handle bigger falls.

    Seriously... is this for real? An 1/8th" deep scratch? Do you know how deep that actually is (.125)? I think that may actually be deeper than the glass is thick. In other words you wouldn't need to wipe it down with a cloth to notice a gash in the screen of that size. You would be able to see/feel it very easily. Maybe next time you wear your sweatpants take out the 1 carat diamonds and assorted rocks you also store in there.

    I do have to say that Gorilla Glass appeared to have become a bit of a joke. The old Droid 2 Global I have laying around has almost quite literally been abused and not a single scratch on it. Probably the only device I've ever had where I never worried at all about the screen's durability. I'm not buying the thinner, but still same scratch resistance idea Corning is trying to make us believe.

    I have a feeling it may be more aggressive coating used on the glass rather than the hardness of the glass itself.

This is ridiciculous. Anyway, thank you for the reply and the suggestions. I feel your pain with the car haha I have had the same thing happen.

    Do you think Verizon will really replace it? I suppose it's worth a try. I really want this screen perfect so I can enjoy the 1080p with no blemishes! This screen is amazing!
    A speck of dust or dirt on your finger or stuck in your pants pocket could put a nice scratch in the glass because its harder than the glass. Thats why they make screen protectors. So bashing the best screen glass out there because you didnt take precaution to protect your expensive investment is ridiculous.

    This a thousand times.

    Almost all of the scratches people are seeing are in the coatings, not the glass.

    I have a Bionic with GG1 and never needed a screen protector. The phone has taken a lot of abuse, but the glass has no scratches. The DNA was getting scratches from just everyday use, so I gave in and applied a screen protector. GG2 is definitely nowhere near as scratch resistant as GG1 was.

    My 16 month old son scratched my DNA in 20 seconds. Not sure how he pulled it off. I had installed a zagg HD.
    Is much better than the previous zaggs I have hated. Masks the strach a bit too.
    :-)

    Deep scratch to btw.

    Chiming in here again.

    Wow. I did not notice how serious this change was. My OG Droid from 2009 that has Gorilla Glass 1 STILL does not have a SINGLE scratch on it, whereas my DNA has multiple scratches already.

    Samsung Captivate w/ GG1 3 years naked no scratches (maybe a couple surface (coating?) swirls which could only be seen with the screen off in direct light. N4 w/ GG2 5 months, a couple scratches that can easily be seen and felt with finger nail, absolutely no changes in behavior, treatment, moving to the beach, etc. Looks like GG2 took a step backward IMHO. Screen protector is going on and I'll live with the scratches for now.

    Supposedly its not the glass on GG2 that is scratching but the oil coating... which is pointless because it looks and feels like a scratch so whats the difference whether the glass or the oil scratched?

    Hmm i don't believe its bullet proof in any way but other than a slim case my phone is naked on the front. Zero scratches of any note, and I'm fickle as hell.
