    Milestone doesnt have gorilla glass???!!!

    I didnt buy a screen shield because i was told the droid/milestone use gorilla glass which makes it almost impossible to scratch the screen , WRONG my milestone has 4 scratches, and two of them are big =/ , did motorola stop using the gorilla glass with the milestone?

    Do you have a pic of the scratches that you can share?

    Nobody ever said Gorilla Glass is unscratchable. Anything harder than GG can scratch it.

    My Milestone also got a small scratch near the home button within the first two days of use. It's a very tiny scratch so it can't be seen during normal use. I only noticed it cause I was specifically checking for scratches on my then new Milestone.

    my cam doesnt capture them , i mean they dont show on simply sight but when the app has a white background they clearly show =(

    This video made me think it was scratch proof

    Metal keys and ink pens are softer than GG, so they don't scratch it.

    But guess what? Some types of "sand", quartz, a lot of dusty mineral **** that ends up in your pockets or in your environment can be harder than GG, and therefore able to scratch it. Which is what happened to you.

    Maybe you should think about cutting your nails first?

    No way. There are no fingernails known to man that are harder than GG. The reason you scratched your omnia with your nails is the Omnia uses a resistive screen. The top layer on a resistive screen is relatively soft plastic.
