    Ah, don't wonder why it's said that motorola has the best build quality followed by HTC. I've had my bionic since day 1 and love it. No scratches and NO SCREEN PROTECTOR. That's why I'm waiting for the RAZR hd.

    Had it on mine within 20 minutes of unboxing.

    Sorry to hear that, had my phone for two days with no protection and no problems, put on a protector from www.clarivue.com fantastic protectors, also same one on my Rezound, my last Gorilla glass HTC Incredible was always naked and never had any scratches, still looks like new, my nephew is sporting it. You probably had a sand crystal rub against it, only thing that will scratch reinforced glass is sand "glass is made from sand" and diamonds. Good luck.

    I've never used a screen protector and never had any noticeable scratches.

    I would suggest you clean out your pockets and in the future clean your fingers before using the phone. Keys will not scratch your phone so you don't have to worry about that but sand and glass of the same type will scratch it instantly.

    Sand and diamonds are NOT the only things that will scratch glass. Anything with a Moh's hardness of 5-5.5 or greater will scratch it. Certain carbonized steels, and quite a few other sedimentary minerals will also scratch it.

    Keys are typical brass or nickel coated brass which is a hardness of about 3-4. Regular steel is about 4-5. Carbonized steels like stainless steel are anywhere between 5-6. So it may or may not scratch depending on the carbon content of the steel. And the amount of quartz in the screen which is used to make it "harder".

    Good to know. Missed that part in chemistry class.

    Wonder how much it'd run to have a smartphone with a sapphire screen instead. Probably madly expensive for mass production, but virtually impossible to scratch. They're a 9 on moh's hardness scale.

    Breakfast beats worrying.
