    I highly doubt anyone is going to scratch test their screen for you.

    The iPhone screen is pretty scratch resistant even with keys in your pocket and they are both glass screens so I am going to assume the same is true for the Droid.

    ok i just did a test. i was dying to know and i couldnt wait for someone else to try it so i tested on a lil corner at the top. i tried it with a lead pencil tip first some light taps, scraped it a lil back and forth. no scratches. so i took a scissor and did the same thing on the same spot. still no scratches. so next i took an exacto knife and did the same thing. this time even harder taps and scrapes. still nothing. so i dragged it across the screen and did some more harder pokes and still no scratches. i didn't dare do it too hard though but it seems like its at least resistant to light and medium scratches. seems like google put some heavy thought into this phone afterall. wonder if its made of tempered glass...

    Wow. That's an impressive display of "taking one for the team". I have been carrying mine around like a damn baby, so that makes me feel better!

    The screen will scratch. Don't know what it takes, but when I got mine on release day, I was playing with the nav on the ride home. With the light hitting the screen just right, I saw my screen was loaded with fine scratches. I went back to the store and they compared it to another one and it was fine and swapped it out for me.

    I don't know if it came from the factory like that or if I got a device that was somebodys toy first.

    Hey,

    r u really sure u did those scratch tests? I 'd like to see a video of that ^^
    :D all in all, as Motorola likes satisfied customers, tha "glass" should be scratch resistant,depending on what kind of scratches u apply ;)

    SHens.

    It is a glass screen. IF it scratches, it is going to be a big scratch/break. Just like the iPhone or the storm. Sure you didn't have a screen protector on it still???

    They offer great protection, but on a glass screen I won't be using it. Plus, invisible shield's material makes your finger stick when you swipe, etc.
