    Damn it .... Never a fan of screen protector but after seeing this have to put a screen protector on a phone after 2 or 3 years...

    Doesn't specifically say it covers scratched screen but it does cover accidental damage.

    Glad to have my suspicions confirmed by JerryRig cuz when i was holding the Note 7 in the store and talking to Samsung employee i was tapping it and saying, "THIS is glass??!! Does NOT feel like it AT ALL"!!

    Samsung prolly thinks ppl would trade a cracked display for a lightly scratched one, but personally i don't want cracked, scratched OR to have to put my phone in a case... For $900 bucks, i just don't think that's too much to ask ...

    Make the next one indestructible, and while you are at it, bring back the white color...

    Thanks Sammy, love u xxx : )

    The problem is that the other videos of scratch tests do not agree with this guy at all.

    Why would I do that .. like .. ever? Why not put it in my pocket?
    My point is, eventually you will probably slip up and the screen will scratch when it wouldn't have with GG4.

    Put a case on it, put a screen protector on it or go commando (life happens). If those options are not appealing to you don't buy it.

    You may think that but I disagree . Sorry I know way better than to throw a phone into any purse .. That is like walking into the street and being shocked a car may hit you.

    I require that my GF has a dedicated compartment in her purse where only phones can go. Problem solved. Fortunately she cares about the look of her phone as well. All my training is paying off

    Regular screen protectors feel like garbage and aren't needed on GG4 devices in most cases, glass screen protectors likely won't be viable due to the shape of the screen, and going commando will likely lead to unsightly and annoying scratches. The case isn't going to save the screen from scratches.

    Imagine how many scratches you would have with the significantly softer glass on the Note 7.

    FWIW, the Note 7 I looked at at one of our local Best Buys had a vinyl screen protector on it. I don't recall ever seeing screen protectors on demo phones before and I thought it was a bit strange. It definitely wasn't like the one that comes on it in the package and it didn't even go over the edges and was off center. So, it would appear someone installed it on this display Note 7. I didn't think too much about it at first and thought it was a bit overkill since GG5 was supposed to be so tough. Now I am thinking otherwise...

    Has anyone else seen a screen protector on a display Note 7?

    Probably none. I have an S7 Edge naked with not a single scratch. GG5 isn't going to be any worse I don't care what anyone says. If you sit and rub stuff over your phone of course its going to scratch. It's a glass phone

    I haven't really trusted that guy's videos since he was exposed for falsely accusing the Nexus 6p of being easily bendable.

    I really wish Samsung would move to sapphire glass like Apple uses on their iPhones. I have had the iPhone 6 Plus for over a year with no scratches and I get the S7 Edge and within two months there are two fine hairline scratches. One very small one on the screen and another very small one on the home button.

    They are barely even noticeable unless in the direct sunlight with the screen off. It should be noted that I pet my phones. I always use cases and never put my phones in pockets with keys and loose change.

    I like many others would rather have a more scratch resistant phone housing than the GG4 or GG5 that scratches very easily. I really hope Samsung addresses these issues in the future releases of their Galaxy S and Galaxy Note model phones. The plastic home button needs to be done away with as well.

    You realize that iPhones don't use sapphire glass on their display right?

    I had an S7 Edge for exactly two weeks. During that time I got a MAJOR scratch on the home button. Mind you, I am VERY gentle with my cell phones and very good them (I don't throw them in pockets, in my purse, etc). I was very disappointed and wound up returning it right at the two week mark. I have an iphone that I have been using since October and have one minor scratch on the display that you really have to search for. I have my N7 waiting at home for me right now and plan to baby it like none other. I really hate the idea of spending just under $900 for a phone and have it all scratched up within the first few weeks......here's to hoping!

    I noticed the same and was hoping by posting the link someone would mention where to go buy this stuff too. Otherwise I have to hope the Samsung section at Best Buy is suppose to have all this stuff now?
