    It literally happens with EVERY new phone release. Scratch-gate! Bend-gate! Battery-gate! Camera-gate! Signal-gate! No Headphone Jack-gate! Then it dies down once the Chicken Littles realize the sky isn't falling for 99.9 percent of the purchasing public. It's so ******* ridiculous, but you can just about set your clock to it with every release. Just wait until Sept. when the new iPhone releases. I should start a pool to predict what the first wild overreaction will be.
    Spot on

    Think with iPhone 7 people will still be hammering Apple on the same design and no headphone jack as they are now

    Put mine in two Spigen cases, the Samsung S-View and the Samsung LED View case today and it emerged with no scratches on the back - or front - upon removal. So maybe the Ringke case has an issue?
    I have an Orzly FlexiCase and two Ringke cases (Air in Smoke Black color and Fuson in Crystal View color), and didn't have any problems when I tested all three of them on my new Note 7 yesterday.

    Is there a way to remove scratches off the Back? I've read clear nail Polish but I'm not sure how that'd work with gorilla glass 5. I guess I should be grateful Tmobile is willing to do a return, I just wish blue coral wasn't on backorder.

    you mean when attacked viciously with a razor blade? lol... C'mon man, thats not remotely similar to traditional wear and tear.
    Obviously that was a crazy amount of damage, but he's done the same thing to other phones that still worked fine afterwards. I'd be interested to see at what point scratches do start to degrade the accuracy of the scanner.

    i literally just ordered two Ringke cases. Hopefully others can chime in on this. I agree that is insane. I had an S7 Edge with a cheap clear TPU case and don't recall any scratching.

    I have this Ringke case. On for 24 hours. Obviously not a good cross section of use, but i have no scratches.

    I saw Corning responded to this:
    Corning responds to that worrying Galaxy Note 7 scratch test video

    They essentially stated that what is on the screen with the hardness level 3 is something like residue from the hardness pick since it is a very soft material. I'm not an expert but the way everything was worded makes me more suspicious than if they had just given a more direct answer.
    They are telling the truth I had thought I had a scratch on mine..then I kept wiping with finger,..it was just a residue.....

    I tried to get the scratches out and the sales rep at tmobile said they were engraved in there. If no one else is having this issue it makes me think mine must be defective.

    Here's a video showing a small box cutter knife and coin being taken to the screen. Don't shoot the messenger, but this may alleviate some concerns.

    The best way for Corning to resolve this controversy is to just do their own video test and upload it for all the world to see. If the test that Zack conducted on Jerry Rig is valid that means a tempered glass screen protector could potentially scratch the note 7 screen when applied or removed. Not good. This also means that Corning would have singlehandedly screwed over both Samsung and Apple. The new iPhone will reportedly also use gg5 and I'm sure there isn't enough time for Apple to switch out screens before the September release.
    The sad thing about this is someone will probably lose their jobs over this and it may have just been an honest oversight or mistake that wasn't considered until now. Corning probably knew it was more susceptible to scratching but the higher ups were told that it would be comparable to gg4 to the point where it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

    The video warned that people would be scratching their screen within the 1st week. We're halfway through the 1st week, so far I don't see an explosion of complaints about the scratched screens. I'll report back on Friday.

    Haha you MAY have one. Good thing I'm not the only one with a phone obsession. Thoughts on the note compared to s7e?? I'm losing sleep at night debating if it's worth getting. The grace ui and the new always on display is amazing. Idk if I can wait for it to come in an update to the edge, who even knows if it will.

    It may seem a serious issue by watching this "Note 7 scratch test" video, but this is not actually the glass getting scratches / damage. It is a type of behavior known as "material transfer" in Material Science. Though it feels that better shatter resistance ability has somewhere compromised the scratch resistance ability on Note 7 (a nice tempered glass screen protector will do the trick), it also depends on the extreme conditions in the video & Mohs hardness test which is obviously already tested by Corning for Gorilla Glass 5 (Note 7).

    if you look closely to the note 7, maybe he is really use a transparent screen protector. iam here in germany,the note is not out yet here but its for testing in some markets. and i talk to the samsung guy and i did a try with my keys and scratch the screen,trust me,nothing happen with the display. so you can put it easy in your pocket with keys.

    Uggh, I had to remove the Zagg and am going naked front right now. Two reasons - it got SO oily and starting giving that rainbow shine, and the corners kept coming up with a case on. Going to give the Verizon tempered glass a shot, see what it's like. And if that's not good, might just keep it naked, since I have the Best Buy insurance anyway.

    I've had the Note 7 for a few days now with no screen protector, although I do have an s-view case. It's extremely easy to remove the phone from one of these cases compared to an Otter Box if you want to show off the phone naked. Also, just keep the flap closed when the phone is in your pocket and it is virtually impossible to get scratches that way. I put the phone up against a bright light just now to see if I had any micro-scratches after heavily using the phone including the stylus on the bare screen since August 19th... Didnt notice one scratch.

    I have had mine since Friday afternoon. Put my S-View case on it about 2 hours after purchase with no scratches on either side, at least that i saw. I have taken it out of the case 2 times for about a total of 20 min or so to put in the SD card. When looking it over today after taking it out of the case for the second time i noticed a scratch on the back. Not sure how it got there since it has been in the case 98% of the time i have owned it
