    Nothing wrong with civil discussion. We don't always like the threads we read. My suggestion is to move on to other threads if the subject bugs ya in this one.

    Gorilla glass or not, I'm sure that it will blend no matter what.

    Is anyone concerned with the entire front being glass and it not having any protection like Gorilla Glass?

    not really.

    i've had my droid charge without a screen cover since the day i got it. it's been through normal day to day wear and tear and i don't have a single tiny mark or nick on the screen. it's flawless. i expect the same for the screen on the galaxy nexus.

    I'll take the nice, informative road. Samsung announced it's not Gorilla brand, but it is another type of fortified glass. It should be fine.

    No. Then again I'm not totally careless with my phones.

    I have horrible luck with phone screens. Both of my Nexus S phones had small scratches after days of use... I actually think i baby them too much. I always buy full body skins though when available. Luckily the Galaxy Nexus looks to have a less scratch prone body so i may only end up using the screen portion of the skin. Long story short, to me it doesnt really matter because ill be covering them up for safety anyways.

    I'm not concerned. I will be using ghost amor- on the front - when it's available. When I had the Nexus S I had the Zagg installed and it looked good. I've heard the ghost amor looks even better. It also doen't take aways from the screen IMO.

    I prefer to feel the glass so no screen protector.

    It's a nice looking piece of hardware since it's an all glass front but that's also a concern.

    It' won't have any protection like gorilla glass? Where did you hear that? All I heard is they are not using that BRAND!

    ROFL! I love my Droid x gorilla glass. I haven't used a screen protector in years. I dread going back to those days since swype doesn't work well with film over the surface.

    For all we know the GN could have a Lotus Glass screen on it. This is the next gen of fortified glass from the makers of Gorilla Glass.

    I have never had a problem with resistance (using bestskinever). I think that the resistance problem comes in when the skin is not installed perfectly. The phone my dad had using the same skin absolutely has the problem of resistance. His install was not nearly as good a mine (even though I installed them both). It seems like I still haven't perfected putting these things on, though I have learned a few tricks over the years.

    Yup yup! They said that it didn't have Gorilla Glass, so maybe it has Lotus Glass instead. One can hope. Maybe it's even Dragontrail Glass from a company called Asahi.

    I've never had a problem with a screen protector affecting the screen's operation. What I like about some good screen protector's is, fingerprints don't show up as badly. Gorilla glass is nice but, we don't know what kind of glass is on the G-nex and, it may not be that bad. I know that whatever was used on my Nexus S was pretty good but, I did use a screen protector on it.

    I don't understand why this keeps being brought up. It's almost like some of you are looking for something to argue about.

    screen protectors are not an option. I'm going to get the nexus and just hope the fortified glass is pretty good.. its obviously not lotus glass.

    The reason Corning is creating Lotus Glass is to deal with ultra-high resolution screens. That may be a hint as to why it's not Gorilla Glass in the Nexus. Frankly, it's just a brand. If I buy a Nikon DSLR I know I'm getting a quality camera, but I'm not going to fool myself that the Canon equivalent isn't just as good if a little different in the strengths and weaknesses. Whether the brand Samsung uses scratches a little more but is less prone to cracking or the other way around doesn't matter much to me - it's just a phone and it only needs to last two years before I'll start drooling over the next big thing (and then wonder why my phone has more cores than my desktop).
