    My phone has never seen anything rough like concrete or asphalt. It dropped one time on a tiled floor but It didn't scratch it. The droid has spent most of its time in my pocket, maybe once or twice with change. It has never seen keys or blades or any sharp object. I've had my phone for 8 months.

    I cleaned my phone today and look at all these scratches!!!
    I am wondering if somehow by pure accident they installed a regular glass screen or had a really crappy batch of gorilla glass.

    I know scratches are not covered by warranty, but what about having the wrong type of glass used? That sounds to me like a manufactures defect.

    I doubt its the wrong glass. All Moto uses is Gorilla glass on the Droids. Sorry about the scratches though....my first D1 was great, got a refurb and now have a ton of dirt under the screen. Its depressing but not much you can do.

    My wife has taken impeccable care of her droid and her screen looks the same. Those scratches are not nearly as bad as I have seen on phones that belong to people who don't take care of their phone.

    Yes but I've seen people rub razor blades and keys on the screen without so much as a blemish.

    happen to put some things in the same pocket?

    my other droid had some small scratches in the corners and near the edge of the screen. the screens are sturdy and can take a beating, but they're not exactly 100% scratch proof

    weird i would fall in line of those people that dont take care of there phones.. i had my droid 1 for 9 months or so carried it in my pocket, dropped it a few times nothing major and screen was scratch free when i sold it.,, ( trust me they looked it over good)

    i carried the incredible same way with the same results

    carry my X in my pocket no scratches or anything like that either..

    the only thing i do put on all of them is a shell.. no screen protectors. and i do take them out of pocket before i sit down for any extended period of time.

    Glass and ceramic tile, and especially grout, would be up to the task of scratching your screen.

    I use a case (body glove) and a fit to screen - screen protector have had my d1 since April without a scratch. I constantly clean my phone down, its pretty sad I know. I may divorce my wife soon for her.

    Its possible to get sand and grit in your pocket and not know it. Those can cause those fine scratches.

    And that fits perfectly with dropping on tile floors. I speak from experience :)
