Hey our there,

this morning i thaugt i will smash my s3. I have this device for less then one week, keeping it safe every moment. so no coins, keys or any sharp objects in my pocket.

no putting it on the display side, nothing. But now i have a ~ 1 cm long quite deep scracht in the middle of the glass. not the tiniest little scracht, but just this big one....

cant imagine where it came from, but i am super pissed.... display foile just came today evening... nice timing

what the **** is this.....

None on mine. I don't really look for them unless people ask, but can't see any. Gorilla glass is very strong.

All it takes is a grain of sand on the screen when you use and this is what you get, because it's a serious misconception to think Gorilla Glass is actually scratch proof, because it's only scratch resistant to things softer than the glass.

Some screen protectors can cover the scratch. You'll never know it's there.

Screen protector.

I am using a moderately cheap one right now until I can get my hands on the better ones.
I also keep my phone in the right pocket of my pants that stores nothing but the phone.

no screen protector, no case. Phone already has hundreds of microscratches on the back, and quite a few on the glass also. Really doesn't bother me, not like you can see it when the screen is on.
