    Just because of this alone I may wind up returning it and not just an exchange (may have battery issues) I've already noticed a few light scratches in one area on the middle of my screen. When it is in my pocket, nothing else is even with the phone. i lay it face up everywhere and the ONLY thing that may have touched it is the charge cable. I'm so upset right now... 2 years with an OG and not a single scratch, 3 days with the Rezound and I see scratches.

    Did you get the screen protector that they usually bundle with the phone? I never failed to get this. with the bionic though it really isn't needed. Been naked for a while...no scratches on my screen. but the verizon emblem on the bottom is cheaply etched on and is starting to chip away. Something you wont have to worry about with the Rezound. Return it and get a new one, but just don't delay on getting that screen protector.

    I don't understand why people pay 300 bucks for a phone and won't get a 6 dollar screen protector.. but anyway I'm not sure what they do to screens but all high dollar phones use gorilla glass or some form of it but they might put some type of coating on the screen its been posted all over DF of people upgrading from there naked OG droid and getting scratches even ppl that have dx or d3 so u take ur chances

    I used my DX with no screen pro and it was fine and still is. I like the look and feel of the natural screen vs. with a screen pro. I got my Rezound last week and had it one day and I too noticed it does surface scratch very easily. Went back next day and picked up a pack. Stinks I know, I'd rather use it without and not have to cover that beautiful screen.

    The screens look and feel much different with the protector on. I love the feel of the screen without one, but I'm not going to get more scratches.

    Umm because you shouldn't have to. They advertise gorilla glass as scratch proof. And it turns out its not.

    I just realized my ex wife may have scratched it. I showed it to her on Sunday and she still wears her ring, though on a different finger. I'd bet diamonds will scratch the glass.

    I've never heard it called Scratch proof that's a pretty big claim.... I've heard more scratch resistance..

    Because its just a phone perhaps? My DX has gone naked since day one, been dropped many time, and still not scratch on the screen.

    I prefer the form and function of an uncased phone with no SP. If I break it, big whoop. Its just a phone, I can always get another one. I own my phone, it doesn't own me.

    Except they don't, the Rezound doesn't have Gorilla Glass.

    Well some people can't run back to mommy and get her to buy them another phone..lol. jk.. but anyway not sure about u but 300 bucks is a lot of money to a lot of people most people don't have money to just replace phone after phone... But many will do there best not to put it in a situation where it will get damaged... calling them owned by there phone is kinda dumb.. I don't use a case on mine but I do use a screen protector.

    I don't remember seeing anything confirming that the glass that it has is as good as GG or even close. Who manufactures the glass and what are its qualities? Without that info it cannot be compared to GG.

    All gorilla glass is, is fortified glass... And fortified glass is fortified glass the only reason we or most people know what gg is is that its shoved in our face all the time there are plenty other fortified glass manufacturers that are just as good if not better.. the galaxy nexus does not have gg either.. and corning is developing a new glass specifically for cell phones called lotus.
