    So I have only had my phone for about 2 weeks and a half. I don't have a case or screen protector (I usually never do with any of my phones). But I'm not sure if its just my phone or what, but my screen seems to scratch very easily. It seems like everyday I notice new scratches. They are only visible when they are put under a light or something. But I do have a small deep one that distorts the colors a little and its really annoying. I try to make sure I never have anything in my pockets with my phone, which usually I do successfully. I treat my phone exactly like my old iPhone 4s and that thing had like no scratches at all. My galaxy nexus never scratched this much either in such a short amount of time. I don't know what is wrong but its really starting to get on my nerves. Is this happening to anyone else ?

    I have noticed the exact same thing. I've had mine for about 2 weeks as well and the screen has tons of hairline scratches. I didn't expect it to scratch so easily considering I had my iphone 4s for 2 years and didn't have one scratch on the screen without a case or screen protector.

    Yea and this is supposedly gorilla glass... But I don't know. It really frustrates me. It remind me of seeing my sister old phone. It was like an old LG android phone. By the end of her contract you couldn't see anything cause it had so much scratches. I'm scared my phone will become like that.

    No scratches here yet, but with everyone saying their phone is getting scratched, i think it's time I get myself a screen protector. It's really strange though, I thought the moto X won that durability test thingy.

    I don't have any scratches and I've dropped my phone twice. Hard on concrete. It scratched the bezel and actually dented the back but the screen doesn't have even a scratch on it.

    I ended up doing what I've never done before.... Bought a case and I actually like it.

    Just go ahead and put the ismooth screen protector on it. Easy to get a bubble free installation and you don't even know it's there. Cheap too.

    I put a PET screen protector on mine, cheap, easy to install, and really not bad. People on amazon seem to like this one:

    Just watch a brief tutorial on youtube and/or do it in the bathroom after running the shower for the best lint-free application.

    What screen protector did you choose?

    The one on it now is the vzw clear screen protector.Its holding up ok. I cant stand their anti glare ones tho.
    I normally use Spigen (Steinheil) screen protector but they werent out yet for the Moto X when I purchased it.
    Thats most likely the kind I will get when I have to buy some more.
    So far I am still on my first screen protector out of a 3 pack so got 2 more to go before I have to buy more.

    edit
    Steinheil still isnt showing any for Moto X but are for N5 ,makes me wonder if they will make for Moto X
    Purchased phone Sept.11

    I've had my phone for three days and I just noticed hair line scratches as well. I was a little perplexed because I have taken extreme care for the phone. I just purchased the nexus 5 so we will see how long I keep this phone if it keeps scratching.

    If it keeps scratching? lol. If it is so far, it will continue to do so.

    Lol...insanity is to keep doing something and getting the same result. But really...this is supposed to be gorilla glass, but a $9.99 screen protector from ismooth and there's no thread here

    I put my first one face-down on a table and spun it a little. Immediately replaced it. Other than that I haven't had any problems. Sand is much harder than other materials, and tables get it on them. That combined with the pressure from the phone pressing the screen against it caused the scratches. Otherwise, it shouldn't scratch.

    I know that's why I've already bought a new phone. I'm under my two weeks so it's going back.

    Could anyone recommend the top screen protectors? Seems like everywhere I look someone has a different favorite. I'm overwhelmed by the choices!

    I like Moshi Monde's screen protectors, they install in seconds, can be taken off and on, are bubble free and you can wash them to clean them.

    I would just say buy an Ismooth and be done with it. The cleaning cloth they include is worth the $9.99 by itself

    I bought that one and messed up the first application with the lint and bubbles. The second one was good enough and it looked ok but I didn't have the phone long enough to judge it since it went back next day. I have one protector of the three left for when I (hopefully) get the phone again, maybe from moto maker this time. I did not try to make the air moist so maybe I will take the time for that next time.

    The bathroom makes quite a bit of difference. Steam up the bathroom for 5-10 minutes before you head in to do your screen, have all your stuff handy and set up before you start . : ). Also be sure to use the "hinge method", (it may already come with the tape and instructions for it, here's a youtube video of it).

    I've had my Moto X for just over two months now, and it doesn't have any scratches. I don't have a screen protector on my phone, either.

    You need to remember that Gorilla Glass isn't scratch proof.

    I have been using an att moto x for about 4 weeks straight with a few days off trying other devices. Yet to have any scratches. Always coming in and out of my pocket, etc. Totally naked. Love this device. One of the best android phones ever made.
