It says OEM, which means Original Equipment Manufacturer... but then again... everyone can make a false product and say it's an OEM product.

Can anyone who replaced the glass of their Defy please confirm that it's still water resistant? That's the most important thing for me.

the last one is more expensive, but easier to change as you dont have to remove the glass from your old frame and then glue the new glass on the old frame. so you just replace the complete frontside.

have oordered in ebay almost days of wait got a mail from them that your payment made is refunded , can anyone guide me another site rather than ebay glass + digitizer + black plastic frame ...

EDIT : indian sites are my first preference

No, it's not Mine is scratched and I don't even know how and when it got scratched. Gorilla glass is bend resistant (watch commercial videos on youtube).

The key word is "resistant": it resists scratching - better than ordinary glass does - but it's not scratch proof. So it's still possible for it to get scratched, just less likely. Corning's data sheet for Gorilla Glass is informative. Note that they do not claim that it cannot be scratched but they do say it has "High resistance to scratch damage", and they also claim that scratch damage is less visible (see the photos on the second page).

If you look at Corning's "Products With Gorilla" page you will see that the world and his dog use it in the smartphones. That list includes just about every Motorola smartphone phone, so it's by no means unique to the Defy. Interestingly, Corning don't list Apple, although Wikipedia states that the iPhone was the first volume commercial use of Gorilla Glass, it having been sitting around waiting for someone to find a use for it since the 1960s.

Very interesting.
After 8 months mine has a little scratch, however, if you don't know it's there, you can't see it

if you only buy the glass and glue it on your own, it might not be water resistant and i had problems to find a suitable glue, so i ordered a second one including the frame already assembled: http://www.ebay.de/itm/170743089586 / http://www.ebay.de/itm/320843826557

Or you can follow this site guide Here

I buyed a housing and a digitizer glass here : www.store-show.com

But it is not so easey to change/asamble the parts . A double bondet foam for mounting the mew digitizer.
But no foam material that sticks on the display site of digitizer glass.
You have to made it for your self or else.

That all for cost ca. 30 euro or 38 Us Dollar.

New housing in german motorola service center cost : 90 euro
