    I have been carrying my GN in my pocket (by itself, nothing else in there) and I noticed today that it already has some fine scratches on the screen. I had my OG droid for years and it still doesn't have a scratch on it. Is the consensus that we will have to use screen protectors on this phone or am I being too rough on mine somehow?

    Mine has already dropped once and been in my coat pocket with both keys and a zippo lighter. No scratches, but with the drop the battery door popped open a little on one of the tabs.

    Pressed it down and it snapped right back in.

    Sand is pretty much the only common thing hard enough to scratch it, so your pocket was probably dirty.

    You can take your key and scratch it as hard as you can but you still won't get a scratch on it. -according to a post I read in one of these forums.

    I also heard the screen is as tough as it can get.

    I don't know why you have tiny scratches on yours. Have you tried wiping the "scratches" off?

    Yep, have tried wiping them off... they're actual scratches, down near the bottom right the screen ends and goes to the blank black space. They're very small and very thin, but definitely there. And I haven't had it anywhere but in my pocket with nothing else in my pocket. Hopefully they're just a fluke and I won't get anymore. These I can live with because they're so small.

    If I were you, just get a screen protector. Once it's on, the scratches disappear. Not literally, but you can't see 'em with the protector on.
