    I have the same pockets as I had with my Droid. Don't kid yourself, these posts are coming from people just like you. Don't find out the hard way your new screen isn't quite the same.

    There were several others in the same thread who all posted similar scratches, all who had OG Droid's with pristine screens. There is indeed something fishy going on. I'd probably put my money on the anti-glare coating as well. Some of the people didn't even notice they had the scratches until very carefully examining their phones, most notably, by the ear piece.

    um, what anti-glare coating, this is one shiny-ass bastard here.

    i have checked thoroughly, absolutely no scratches here. goes in my pocket buck naked. had it since august 9.

    maybe moto put out a second revision with a lesser glass?

    I had my D1 for two years (or so) and 0 screen scratches, no screen protectors or covers.

    My D3 I have had for about a month and I have 2/3 pretty significant gouges on the glass. I baby my stuff and have taken the same steps to ensure the health of both.

    As much as I dislike screen protectors (the feel, the look etc.) I might recommend one on the D3.

    There is a very thin layer anti-glare coating on the screen. Perhaps it is not as resistant to scratches and what people are seeing is that layer being peeled/scratched and not actually the screen. Either way, I manager to get my screen protector on flawlessly and it's cut perfectly, so I see no reason to remove it. I do often flirt with the idea of taking it out of the snap case though. I love the way this device feels in hand and the case really takes away from that, but I'm trying to keep it pristine until the otter box is released.

    Same. Was very easy to install too.

    Personally im not one for screen protectors as for other phones such as the env3 and env touch they end up making the screen look dirty, but I love the screen protector I have on my droid. It doesn't scratch and feels very smooth when using the device, I suggest a screen protector for everyone ^-^

    I'm using the Halo screen protector ordered from Amazon. 3 pack for 5 dollars. Very smooth and clear.
