    Droid Dna scratch test?

    Hello all I am new here and was wondering if anyone has done a scratch test or drop test on the droid DNA yet? Being that it has gorilla glass 2 how does it hold up without a screen protector and a case. I just got the phone yesterday and I really like the phone its an awesome phone and I just would like to know if I can leave it as is and not have to get a case and screen protector.

    I actually dropped mine from pocket level to ceramic tile floor. I don't have a screen protector nor case. I inspected my phone multiple times and found no damage. Not even a scratch or mark on the casing. This is a tough phone.

    I dropped mine from my lap onto concrete and it shattered, because the glass is above the edge of the phone. I had a Razr prior and threw it to demonstrate its strength. The dna has a fatal design flaw. The edge of the phone should come up over the edge of the screen, but it is the other way around on this phone. I have the gs3 now, but and am trying to decide if I want to repair the DNA and put it back on my account.

    I think the design flaw as you put it is also the beauty of the design. Swiping on the glass, which is kindof like an Infinity Pool, is amazing. But not surprisingly more likely to break.

    I've also read that the Gorilla Glass 2 is both "thinner and lighter" but still retains comparable resistance to scratches, however like the original Gorilla Glass, it makes no claim to being resistant to shattering. Glass is glass and until they figure out how to blend the flexibility (or plasticity) and molecular structure of a polymer into glass, it will remain inherently highly brittle, which makes it prone to cracking from impacts and high frequency vibration since it can't release the vibrations and flex through bending like Steel can.

    Now, it seems there IS some progress being made to make Glass like Steel...

    I have a tiny hairline scratch in my DNA screen.
    I have never rubbed it on anything.
    I want it to be as thin as possible and keep it in my front jeans/slacks pocket and only the phone goes into my pocket.
    I noticed one day while cleaning the screen I saw a tiny tiny line and it didn't come out so it's a very tiny scratch.
    So this screen does scratch easily.
    I don't know how or when I got it, but I'm very careful with it.

    Its funny how particles of dirt can scratch the toughest glass out there on the market im lucky enough to not have scratched my dna yet and i am debating wether or not i want to put a screen protector and case on the phone. It is just a beautiful phone without any case and i really like it like that. I find the otterbox cases are to bulky so i might get a skinomi full skin protector with a carbon fibre skin back.

    I have a small scratch at the bottom near my back button. I'm sure it came from my tugsten carbide wedding ring. I have now changed the way I pocket my phone. Used to be screen facing out. Now I pocket it screen facing toward my leg. No problem since but bummed I had to learn that the hard way.
