    Google up the Mohs scale of hardness. Knives are scary to some people and they think anything can be cut with a knife so that's why these knife tests catch attention.
    Simple high school physics says otherwise. Keys are even softer than most knives.
    As has been said, no GG will stand up to sand no matter how small the particles.
    Yup, hence being able to take off window stickers with razors.

    The only useless test I can say is useless is the blending
    But they sure are fun to watch!!!! (And the S3 kicked the iPhone's behind!)

    I still doubt it would be as hard to scratch it
    I did some research, Gorilla glass is about a 9 on Mohs scale, knives are 7
    Sandpaper (which I guess I can somewhat associate with sand) is also about a 9
    So I guess it can scratch it, but probably not as easily as other phones

    I'd say that if this phone can stand on it's own in a knife fight, I can rest assured it's not going to get all scratched in my pocket where it sits alone, tiny specks of dirt and all.
