    Most people say that it is really hard to scratch. Some people have reported that just being in their pocket (supposedly) that it scratched.

    Me personally, I'm not interested in finding out, so I have a screen protector on it. Rarely do I even notice that the protector is there.

    It is gorilla glass, so it should be hard to scratch, i have had a BSE on mine since day one anyway... i don't want to take any chances.

    I'll second Matth3w.

    I have mine in a case with a screen protector. After I learned it had gorilla glass, I took the protector off for about 20 minutes before OCD kicked back in and I put another one back on.

    Like the others said, I don't want to take a chance.

    Would you walk around a construction site without a hard hat? is how I see it.

    Plus I honestly never notice that the screen protector is on there anyhow. The VZW screen protector that I have isn't exactly scratching either, so it doesn't look like crap.

    Glass is very strong you can hit it with something hard and it won't scratch but you can also break it with a soft tap.

    Screen protector,hard case with a holster. Not taking the chance. ..

    Yeah I would say the screen is kinda hard to scratch...I dropped mine within the first week I got the thing...fell off my lap face first on the screen onto pavement and SLID like 2 feet :(

    No scratch on the screen though...barely even tiny little knicks around the screen though

    It doesnt scratch too easily, but I'm all for protecting one's investment.

    The VWZ screen protectors work fine, but they're not cut to leave the surface completely smooth -- the tough buttons at the bottom, and the LED and light sensors have cutouts.

    I use the Steinheil Crystal, from SGPStore.com -- it fully covers the screen, and you cant even tell it's on unless you are looking hard -- they're 2 for 10, rather than VZW's 3 for 10, but I havent once yet wanted to take this one off, and I suspect it'll stay in place for a few months.

    +1 for not wanting to find out. Steinheil Crystal helps keep me ignorant of the answer.

    unlike most of these posts, I can attest to the screens scratching. I just found a scratch today. I am PISSED!!!! I've trying to apply the screen protectors and am constantly getting dust underneath and then have bubbles. i've spent quite a bit of money on them actually and I guess I'll go out tomorrow and try again.....damn

    Naked and scratch free.
    My first phone had the protectors from day one. I'm about a month on phone two and I haven't used a protector on it at all. I saw the gorilla glass clips on the internet (Google for them) and decided I didn't need a protector. I've read the posts where folks have scratched them though. The phone always goes in the same pocket, and nothing else goes in there except the phone.

    It's just my luck i guess.....just bought 4 more seidio screen protectors....they cant get here soon enough.....really disheartened by the scratch. cant really see it unless it's angled but it's there. have to figure out how to put those dam> things on without bubbles....
