    I'm in the habit of wiping the phone across my shirt when it gets smudgy. Gorilla glass or not. Apparently that's a no no. Especially when you work in a metals factory like I do. We have cast iron dust and minute little chips everywhere. Guess it's back in the otter box even though it detracts from the sleak appearance.

    I don't think it so much the gorilla glass I think it's more the anti glare coating they put on it.

    Awww. I use the Otterbox Commuter with its screen protector because I'm afraid of dropping it or getting a scratch. Some people think it's overkill but since it's not time for an upgraded phone, if something happens to this one I'm up for spending some big $$$. Plus I've heard that Gorilla Glass is not useful at all against some materials like sand. Which is everywhere were I live - especially in pockets. Looks like metals are another weakness.

    I hope it's not too noticeable once you have a screen protector back on it.

    Yeah metal shavings are the kryptonite to gorilla glass.

    Gorilla glass is great but not indestructible and does still require a screen protector. Another common myth is that it is exclusive to certain devices. It was used in almost every moto phone since the OG as well as various other brands. Fun fact of the day!!

    I believe now, they put an anti-glare coating on these newer phones that can get scratched easier. So I doubt its even the gorilla glass itself.

    Invisashield is where its at. I work in a steal mill melt shop and this is the only form of protection that I use.

    I have both and have had from day one. But like I said both my otter box defender and the shield detract and defeat the design appearance of the razr which is one of the reasons I choose this phone. Using those items make our sleek phone look like just another piece of industrial equipment. So you might as well buy something less attractive and cheaper in the first place.

    Regardless it's back in the o.d. now. But it feels and looks like a brick. Or a rectangular hockey puck.

    What?? Did you even read the posting? Your multitasking too much. Slow down. In my 1st post I said it was going back in the otter box. In my last I stated it was there. Read and comprehend before posting please.

    I'd rather just pay the $99 and get a new one through insurance then use that ugly case.

    Yes I agree. Using it now. But now it won't fit in either the HD or navigation docks. So what the f---! I'll be *****in' if I have to pop this phone in and out of the otter box all the time! And I paid good money for those docks. So it's one or the other.

    And . . how cheap is it to replace the otter box shield? Or do we need to protect that as well? I like the way they clean off windshields in a NASCAR race. They just peel off a layer and away they go.
