    Scratched my screen :(

    I noticed that I got shallow scratch that goes from just to the right of my home button to about halfway up the screen. I make sure to never put the phone in the same pocket as keys or change. I'm thinking this came from the zipper on a pouch I put the phone in on my bike, just sad since I've used the pouch hundreds of times with the Droid 2 and never any issues. The even more annoying part is that I have a belt holster that protects the screen, but left that at home knowing I was going to have it in the pouch most the day.
    Just wanted to let everyone know to be careful because these screens are not very durable.

    Otterbox.
    If you can't build it you shouldn't be using it.

    I had my phone naked in my garage for the first few weeks of owner ship and I scratched it with my thumb. I have a small light "arc" from where I slide the unlock. I remember doing it one day, I had some dust on my screen that had metal in it I guess.


    I put a self healing protector on it and its invisible now, it is the same thing as a ZAGG. BTW I got the screen on Ebay for about $3 shipped! (How can they even do that?)

    Stories like this are exactly why I always use a screen protector. I couldn't live with a scratch on my device. I would have to have the screen replaced. Glad to hear a story where the self healing protector made the scracth invisible!

    I too made the mistake of not protecting mine right away and it face planted smack onto the asphalt. I got lucky... Dinged the plastic and have 2 tiny dings on the screen... One outside of the viewport that makes the protector have a little bubble (virtually undetectable unless you look for it in the light), and another one above the home and menu buttons within the viewport. With the screen protector its imperceptible unless you know where to look, hard to find even in light.

    I got lucky. Next time I won't delay the screen protector. I don't use a case tho cause they either roll up the edge of the screen protector or make it feel too bulky. I'm just extra careful when walking around with it.

    I use the defender front of the otterbox and the silicone skin. I have the extended 2750mAh battery.

    Glass is glass. Sure gorilla glass is a bit more durable, but it will still scratch just like regular corning glass. Dirt & sand are the biggest culprits.

    Supposedly the ottorbox will work with the extended battery, if you leave the back plate off of the phone.
    If you can't build it you shouldn't be using it.
