Default Is the nexus 5 screen inscratchable?

Do I need to use a screen protector or the screen is inscratchable? And how easy does it get scratches?

Nothing is unscratchable. Get a screen protector if you're worried. It's the same as any other gorilla glass phone.

Question and I'm not trying to be rude, but do you search before you post? You post a lot of threads asking questions that have been asked before.

It can be scratched, just the same as any other smartphone out there. Do I recommend screen protectors? Nope. I see no point in protecting the glass if you never get to actually feel the glass. Just take care of it and it'll be fine.

If you're going to search "Is the nexus 5 screen inscratchable?" for example, you're not going to find any threads titled that. The search is concise and searches for specific words, it's not a Google which searches for relevant terms for every single word/phrase (Not to mention adding "nexus 5" to the search is redundant in the Nexus 5 section, and "inscratchable" isn't a word). It's a little clear that you're not using the search properly from the threads you've created.

My friend.... I'll just say.... If you build a reputation of posting threads because you want quick answers and skip searching, eventually other members will recognize this.... And the replies /help will slow down or even stop.

Just some friendly advice.

Also, a well worded search will get you answers in seconds.... Posting a thread can take FAR longer to get you answers. 👌
