What's in a Scratch?
I am looking for a new phone on VZ, but I don't know what to get! I love HTC hardware and Sense UI, but the glass of the Thunderbolt bothers me. While Moto likes to use Gorilla Glass, I know HTC uses different tech, so I have to ask, how have your Incredible (pun intended) screens held up?

I have a Seidio Crystal Clear screen guard on mine (Which you would swear was not there) for 7 months now. My Wife has a Zagg on hers (6 mos), you can tell it's there but it works well. I don't think I really need this, neither are in cases, but it just made me feel better.Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

For the most part the screen holds up okay. I do have a small scratch on mine, however, but that's cause in my haste one day I dropped my keys in the same pocket as my phone.
I was asking for it.Rooted & ROM'd 32GB White Mist Verizon Galaxy S4

Had my dinc about a year now no screen protector and just the resin case that Verizon sells on it .... I throw my phone in the same pocket as my keys, change , lighter........ no scratches no issues at all. The only thing that has not been done to phone is I have never kicked across the floor face down.

I have had the Droid Incredible since May 4th, and got the ordinary pack of 3 screen protectors from Verizon that came bundled with the phone (it also has a microfiber cloth within the package), and I am still using the first screen protector that was put one without a single scratch. The camera is still pristine as well. I think the screen is pretty durable. If you were to buy them, I think it would run you 10 bucks. But they work.Don't Eat Yellow Snow!!!

I've had my Incredible since the day before launch. It's been completely nude this entire time but there's not a single scratch on the screen. Not one. And trust me, we've had some bad days - got a few chips and dings on the sides and I even managed to shatter the glass over the camera lens, but that screen itself is a beast.

Had my Dinc since June of last year. I have a few slight scratches on the screen, but that's because I dropped it on my foot and kicked it face down across the entire garage floor. Sucked, but the scratches only show up in certain kinds of light. pretty durable imo.

Had my incredible since july,2,2010.At first had screen protector(zagg) but not long til removed.
