I never saw that one before either...WOW. And, thankfully I could turn down that background audio.
Anyone still think they need a screen protector?
hey who edited my post, not nice. :icon_evil: lol
Man that first video in the OP is intense. I had to turn it off before he pulled out a micro fiber cloth and tried to really scratch it.
that is Fn hilarious.. but who would get a phone and try a scratch test.. thats pretty ballsy
someone posted in another thread that their money clip put two deep scratches on their incredible whilst in their pocket... hmmm
I just read that - Not sure but something doesn't add up. If I can beat the *&^$ out of the screen and get no scratches then you wouldn't think that having it in your pocket would do damage no matter what was in your pocket... Guess I'm being safe and putting a protector on. DOn't want to be one of the few who find out the hard way!
This wasn't supposed to be like a ultimate scratch test. LOL this guy was showing everyday usage...what it would go threw in your pocket and what not.
I've never met anyone who makes the motion of buttering bread with a pocket knife on their phone.
Okay folks, let's break this **** down.
Concern over scratched screens is a holdover from the days when phone screens were made of plastic. Plastic, being extremely soft, is prone to scratches by all manner of ordinary items: keys, money clips, coins, scissors.
Modern smartphones generally have glass screens. Glass is extremely hard. While even items we consider soft can shatter glass - don't throw a phone book at your living room window - only very hard things can scratch it. Most rocks, sand, and jewels can scratch glass. I do not know of a single metal which can scratch glass (thought some may exist).
This is why screen protectors are generally not needed for glass screens: Anything which can scratch your screen - such as a diamond ring - will typically tear through that screen protector with ease.
While your post holds truth, I have to disagree when you say they are generally not needed. Just from personal experience, my phone comes in contact with grains of sand, not scissors, or diamonds.
