I also have 2 really faint scratches. Only can see it in extremely bright sunlight.
I had my s3 with gorilla glass2 I has no scratches at all with no screen protector.

I've had mine for about two months, naked. A couple very fine scratches on the screen (nothing noticeable unless you're really looking). The case would have been perfect if I didn't drop it onto a paving stone sidewalk (waist height). So there's a small blemish on the top corner by the headphone jack. Otherwise, she's clean.

One small crack in the upper left corner, and one larger crack at the lower left corner. Phone has been in a ringke fusion and I honestly don't know how the cracks happened, phone was fine last time I looked at it and the next I pull it out of my pocket and had the two cracks (thought they were hairs caught in the case as first.) Never cracked or scratched the screens of any of my previous phones (Evo, Nexus S, GNex). Fortunately the cracks don't cross the screen so I'll deal with it till the price on replacement screens come down, just a shame since I had been thinking of selling it to get the Moto X.

Yeah seems like gorilla glass 3 is less durable...
