    My screen has scratches already. Not sure what people are on when they talk glass. Its no better than properly surface treated glass with a coating. It is easy to scratch.
    Mine has too. But very minor and can only be seen if I tilt my phone in the light a certain way. But still a scratch. Ended up paying 25 bucks for the ghost tempered glass by mime. I love it. Works perfectly. There is no compromise to the touch sensitivity either.

    So...? The case is resolved? Sorry, I am confused by your previous post.

    Protect everything. Anything else is ignorance. People claim to have a scratch free device after months of use 'naked.' They must be oblivious as I've seen micro scratches within a day or two.

    Dry screen protector day one. Replace it every couple months. They are less than a dollar and affect nothing.

    I had the guy at the radioshack I bought my zagg install it there. He says he did multiple a day and knew exactly what to do 0 issues with it for the few months I've had it on so far. Sad about the best buy geek squad guys really...

    Best buy sucks, never go there for anything. Also the spray that zagg uses is non conductive so it should cause any problems, That is if it's uses how it's supposed to be uses. If u were to pour it in the phone then it would cause problems.

    from what ever phone I feel like using today

    Those aren't scratches on the glass, they're scratches on the oleo phobic coating.

    Which is harder than the glass it self. Secondly there is a small nick from a scratch which reaches the glass.

    There's your problem right there, the majority -- at least 99.9% -- of the GS are not geeks at all, BB seems to hire anyone for that position that may have fixed a minor issue with something once!

    I've tried to get a job with BB's GS, and have been using computers for over 30 years & almost 20 years of customer service/sales, and I was told that I didn't have experience to work with GS...go figure!

    The coatings are not harder than the glass.

    Apologies forgot their coating helps with the coefficient of friction. I have no idea why I thought they'd be using a sapphire-like coating.

    Either way the 7H hardness on the scale reminds me of hardened glasses on watch crystals, I've owned or worn my share, I've yet to meet a scratch resistant mineral glass.

    My point stands: Gorilla glass 3 can scratch as easily as hardened glass.
    I am surprised most people think Gorilla Glass has amazing scratch resistance properties when it's truly decent properties are the toughness while maintaining high hardness. The hardness is something normal for properly treated, quality hardened glass the toughness can be done as well but not as easily.

    I applied way back in the day as well. Same idea as you. Many years, actually know what I am doing. I think we both intimidated them.
