    Mine got a deep long scratch today. Didn't drop it. It's been in my pocket all day, like every other phone I've owned. Not sure how.

    Yes I'm aware of that, they addressed the test done wasn't a controlled test. That is a different issue. The issue that was discussed on the other thread was what is involved in making something scratch resistant and something shatter resistant at the same time.

    Typical of American companies these days... refute and create diversion among the readers.

    A number here have come right out and posted... problems with scratches on their Note 7. Are they hallucinating these scratches and imperfections? Are we back in the good old days of Owsley LSD of the sixties?

    If there is a problem, Corning needs to step up and deal with it. Btw, I went to college near Corning.

    If not, create a screen protector that WORKS!

    I never use a screen protector with my phones ever since the droid razr. When i took it off, I couldn't believe how much clearer the display was and how filthy and dust magnet the screen protector plastic crap was. I dont care what the reviews or other people say. A plastic screen protector attracts dust, debris and finger prints not long after.

    When I saw the scratch test review by jerryrigeverything, I still wasnt worried because I know my phone wont ever come in contact with razors and sharp objects like that. A real world scratch test would involve coins and keys. The note7 passed that in flying colors. I only wear a ringke fusion crystal clear slim case while at work.

    Ya, I think the least they could do is to publish a experimental video of their own "controlled" test rather than arguing other people are not doing it correctly

    They should have refuted that test. For a test like that to even be considered valid, it has to be done in a controlled environment.

    I wonder if some just aren't used to the raised screen and corners. It would be much easier to scratch the phone when you aren't used to that.

    Corning DID NOT refute the test. In the eyes of many, that says something.

    Like everyone else, I was horrified when I saw the original scratch test video with the guy using the picks. However since then, I have seen multiple scratch test videos of people using keys and knives to scratch the note, leaving no mark. My phone goes into my left pocket with nothing else in it. I never drop my phone (dropped a phone less than 5 times in 6 years). I have used screen protectors in the past, however I need a tempered glass one as I hate the feel of the plastic ones. I have yet to see a tempered glass one that covers the whole screen and works with a case with no issues. The ones I have seen either only cover the middle or only have adhesive on the sides which makes the middle too flexible. Since I don't plan on attacking my phone with a knife anytime soon, am I crazy for not using a screen protector? If there was a tempered glass solution that worked well I'd be all over it but I haven't seen one. I should also mention that I am rocking a UAG case. UAG is the only case I will use. Protective and thin.
    Uag provides good side drop protection, but very minimal face drop protection. Combined with no screen protector and the screen could get scratched or cracked if dropped on the face.

    Always used one even when went naked over the years.

    Scratching the screen is easier than dropping the phone and it's not like you can avoid it like scratch/dent on the body where you just need to get a case.

    Also, resale value.

    My question is why CAN'T companies apply a screen protector OUT OF THE BOX like OnePlus and LET THE USER DECIDE IF THEY WANT IT OR NOT but I guess it's business with third party accessories?
    The note 7 did come with a pre installed screen protector, or at least my Verizon one did.

    Although I am sure that many would be disappointed in the Verizon one since Verizon de contented all the text on the screen protector.

    Gorilla glass 5 scratches easily compared to 4. And gorilla glass 4 scratches easier the gorilla glass 3.

    But they are more shatter proof


    Gorilla glass 3 few! Htc 10 only new phone with the best glass

    I never bought any of the GG claims. If there is glass on my phone, I'm treating it that way, period.

    Glass breaks, glass scratches. And even when we get to GG144, I'll still know there is a chance I may scratch or shatter it.

    I don't have one yet; like the rest of you, I'm waiting for one that fits properly and won't interfere with a case. Or until the Otterbox Defender comes out, since I may get one of those.

    I have a Spigen Neo Hybrid on the phone right now, but I have their heavier-duty case due here on Monday (the one with the kickstand). In the meantime I'll just be super careful with it. If it scratches, I may contact Corning and Samsung and go WTF.

    My Note 3 only had a couple of VERY light scratches on the screen after three years. I had an Otterbox Commuter case on it and it did a great job of protecting it from various drops, including some face-down ones.

    this "reinvented" screen is messing with company's heads trying to get it right,lol. A few have been lucky with a "decent " protector but for the most part no one has it right. I went ahead and bought the S View case from Samsung just to have something to protect the screen.

    You have totally missed the point. Corning refuted the test he did and with good reason. That was what I addressed in the first place and they told why they refuted his test.

    I agree they should refute that test, that doesn't mean he isn't correct.
