The shields or plastic covers can be scratched, that's why I had to change mine recently. I just go with the three pack plastic shields from Verizon. I can get about three months per cover worth of protection from them.
The IS would still show up scratches from fingernails even and with the Steinheil Crystal it is a Hard plastic (like the verizon ones). The Verizon ones on the phone are ugly and definitely not invisible. The PhantomSkinz protectors are more like the IS which is a rubbery type of film and that leaves a rubbery feel and more vulnerability for that film to not protect the phone. The IS film stretches which is not good for scratches seeing as how if something scratches the film will just stretch causing it to be thinner in the area being scratched.
