    I got phone launch morning and baby my stuff somehow my plus has two fairly sizeable scratches?? Hasn't been put in my pocket with anything, dropped, or set on a hard surface. I'm dumb founded. Debating exchanging it or just ordering Whitestone in hopes it covers scratches

    Had mine on launch day and it’s been in and out of my pocket and no scratches at all.

    Haven't had a issue yet. I bought the Zagg Elite and its trash so I took it off. And so far I'm good. My Note 8 did the same as you though got multiple scratches from a unknown source. This one seems better so far. We will see. Fingers crossed. If you put a screen protector in you shouldn't be able to see them. Or see if you can exchange it. Maybe that a option.

    My only hesitation is that if I buy Whitestone and can still see the scratches then that's money wasted. So I guess I'll just exchange but was just curious if anyone else had issues

    I get it. It is expensive. Best of luck.

    For sure GG is not the diamond, but IMHO it had to be any accident you just didn't remember.

    Agreed here. I stopped using a screen protector many years ago and never an issue back to the Note 4..

    Scratches so fast? Could it be a defective screen coating?

    I installed the BodyGuardz Pure Arc Premium Glass Screen Protector on my wife's S9+. After having scratch issues on her S8.

    Same here. Those who mention it being an isolated case just happened to get lucky. Same week that I peeled the SP off of my S8+ I found multiple scratches on the screen and one on the back. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    But than what were all those endurance test about. Cause I watched a few and it showed the screen was really durable. And that it would not be scratched by everday items such as car keys or coins in your pocked. Such a shame.

    Protect your phones. Tough glass is still glass, and things you can’t even see in your pocket (like a grain of sand) can still scratch you screen

    Part of the way that GG works now is making the glass less brittle, so less likely to shatter, by making it softer, so more likely to be scratched.

    With my s8+ I use a wallet case a Zover. Never use a screen protector. Works very well no Mark's whatsoever with Gorilla glass5!

    same here and there has been thread like this for every device I've owned since I stopped using screen protectors, Note 5, S7 Edge, S8+, Note 7, note 8. I don't baby them but just a case and don't drop it all the time or put them in a pocket full of sand and no issues with any device

    That's gorilla glass 5 for you. I had that happen with the S8+ and the Note 8. It's ridiculous. Sure, more shatterproof and all of that jazz, but I put it inside my dress slacks for a day with nothing else in the pocket and ended up with a tiny little scratch on the screen. This happened with both devices. I had a screen protector ready and waiting for my S9+ when it showed up. Never again will I carry one of these phones without a protector.

    Screen protector and case will minimize potential scratches and damage. That's what I tell myself and why I always have to have them. Even then, however, something can still happen.

    Knives, keys etc. have no effect on gorilla glass. But sand particles will leave micro scratches. Never carry a phone in a pocket, I did that with my LG G5 for a bit and that phone had micro scratches. So its not a Samsung problem. Besides as most say, that's what screen protectors are for. I still use the plastic ones, cheap and easily replaceable. Just peel off and your screen is as good as new, even after months of heavy use.

    Yeah, I never use a screen protector glass or plastic. They just ruin the feel of the screen to me. I always do eventually end up with very tiny hairline scratches here and there but nothing noticeable unless I really look for it at certain angles. It doesn't bother me though and the price I pay for not wanting the extra protection.

    Carried my 8+ in front pocket for a year with no scratches. None showed up using Gear VR either. So far nothing on my 9+. You have diamond nails, or some in your pocket?

    It seems the higher the number gets with Gorilla Glass the crappier it is.
