    Not convinced, he's not pressing hard at all. I used to sell appliances and often did the key test to stoves to show people that glass top stoves are strong as heck. If you push moderately hard you'll leave a trail of microscopic metal filings on the stove. I'll look like you wrote on it with gold chalk. In other words, he's not pushing hard at all, he's simply glossing the key over the screen.

    Before you bash me, yes I'm buying this phone and yes I think their glass will be very tough. I just don't think this is a proper test of that glass. When I go to the store, I'll do a 'proper' key test on the store display. :)

    I'll write my name on the phone in key dust. If I wipe the dust off and the screen is pristine then you know we have a winner. If I wipe the dust off and the screen is scratched then we'll all know we need some sort of case or protector. And my name will be on the phone so they police will know who to arrest. Wait a minute, bad plan.

    New plan: I'll write a random congressman's name on the phone.....

    CTU would tell Jack not to scratch the phone but he would then slip out the back door and with the help of Chloe, he would proceed to scratch!

    He repeatedly smacks the screen with the pointed end of the key, I don't see the problem here.

    Edit: Watched the video again, if you look at his hand, you can tell he's pushing pretty damn hard on that screen, even adjusts his grip near the end and pushes harder.

    EDIT: Does this sound like Kiefer Sutherland's voice in the new GN commercial? I think it's him. Jack just stepped up his game. Chuck, you have a little catching up to do
