    Have you ever had the urge to play the game Fruit Ninja on your brand new and expensive high-end smartphone (like the SGS3), with an actual cutting knife? Nope. Neither have we, but gosh-darnit, some folks out there get the strangest ideas in their heads. Luckily for us, they sometimes like to put their ideas on YouTube. To the videographer's credit, it looks like he is using the dull side of the knife instead of the bladed side, but it still makes you wonder what he was thinking?

    Unless that is some sort of crazy carbide steel knife, OR the S3 has a plastic screen, there is no way doing that is going to scratch it - no matter which side they use.

    Maybe I'm confused as to what kind of touchscreen the SIII uses, but how is a capacative screen being activated with a knife? I just tried keys, knives, and scissors, and non will interact with my Nexus' screen.


    EDIT:
    Cancel that. I guess certain metal does interact with my touchscreen (albeit unreliably). However, my screen protector wasn't too happy about my final test. :sad:

    It looks like the sharp side unless you live in a world where the sharp side is the flat side...CRAZY!!! Anywho, its probably some kind of demo for the Gorilla Glass 2 or something. Won't find me doing it though.

    Only thing that scratches glass is sand "since it is made of sand", and no your keys did not scratch your screen "unless of course you put your phone on a table and dug into your screen real hard", it was microscopic sand crystals.

    If you closer at the knife at the beginning of the video you can tell by the handle that it is a paring knife, which is bladed on the flat side, not the curved side. ;)

    Ya, I just saw that. Odd...not sure why a knife would be made like that. I have many kitchen knives and none are shaped like that. Maybe its not a normal US knife or something.

    Maybe he's using a screen protector - any scratches would just peel right off with the protector and then he can just put another one on. BTW, have you guys seen the puregear puretek screen protector applicator device? It takes the pain and disappointment out of putting on a screen protector. I think it would make a great prize here on DF wink wink :wink-b: Here's the link to the video:

    Which can be aided by water, which I didn't know until a few minutes ago.

    Sounds like someone needs to go back to middle school science class.

    Minerals can only be scratched by minerals equal or harder to it. Glass is technically not a mineral but it can be classified as being harder or softer according to Mohs' scale of mineral hardness.

    Glass is generally a high 5 to a 6.

    Talc is 1, Steel is 4, aluminium is 3, diamonds are 10

    So ur saying if I took a piece of stainless steel at the machine shop I work at that I couldn't scratch my screen? I'd really like to do it and send u the picture of the scratch.

    Stainless steel is carbonized steel. Carbonized steel is harder than regular steel. Depending on the carbon content of the particular stainless steel and the quartz content of the glass it may or may not scratch it.

    OK so I'm sure that alot of things that are made of metal keys, key rings, necklaces probly are hardened, carbonized or have some kinds of minerals and aren't pure metals and are capable of scratching the screen. The screen is scratch resistant not scratch proof.

    I will agree with the scratch resistant not scratch proof.
