    Gorilla Glass is nothing but a brand put out by Corning.

    It is not the "end all" of chemically hardened glass, not by a long shot.

    I'm getting so sick of hearing about "Gorilla Glass", it is nothing new OR special. If you do not believe me, take a sheet of sandpaper to your Gorilla Glass screen, and then tell me how awesome Gorilla Glass is. Your screen will be a scratched unreadable mess, just like any other hardened glass product.

    Too bad phone manufacturers have to look for every little "feature" they can market. If not for marketing, no one would know what "Gorilla Glass" even is

    I'm getting my Rezound this thursday, how is the glass? I don't use protectors but am extremely careful with how and where I put my phones. I always and only put it in my left pocket with nothing else in it. Will it hold up to light wear and tear?

    So far it's been good but I've been uber careful. Zagg has been out of stock, and I always use them, so I've got nothing...

    I'm pretty hard on phones. My hands got all F-up in iraq so I almost constantly drop my phones. Much to my absolute horror, my rezound landed face down on the asphalt and i see not one scratch....

    Ok, this will be my final post on this subject. The glass used on the Rezound is some kind of fortified glass. It also is super smooth and your fingers glide accross the screen. I can only explain it as if you were gliding on ice, I put on a clear screen protector and the display did not degrade in quality one bit but the screen protector does not have that same silk like smoothness and if you are trying to play a game and need to keep in contact with the screen your fingers will get stopped at times as it is not as smooth as the glass. I am going sans screen protector as this glass is like any other glass I have had on my prior 8 phones and not one of them ever got a scratch on them and I never used screen protectors. The phone is built well enough to withstand day to day use. If you feel.better using and replacing screen protectors it is a personal choice. There is no feel better than the actual glass and whatever coating was used to make this display rock and glide and roll...Peace...You have to love this phone!!!

    Exactly why I never use a screen protector.

    I dropped my rezound face down on my very rocky aged asphalt driveway.... I've got some scratches on the plastic, the screen is still smooth and blemish free. Now this is hardly "proof" that it is like gorilla glass because I've dropped previous devices that had gorilla glass and they've come back looking all messed up. But anecdotal evidence can't really be considered solid fact... so take my claims with a grain of salt. There are a lot of factors when it comes to scratching a screen. I'm just saying, based off my own experience the glass is pretty hardy.

    I cringe at the thought of purposely taking a key to the screen tho.... Good luck convincing anyone to do that to this precious gem of a phone.

    Glad to hear that your screen remained scratch free. I think only an "Ass" would try to intentionally scratch a screen. Have a good one...
