Me and my wife using it heavily but carry it inside the original pouch or my wife in S2 pouch which completely protects the phone when kept inside a women's purse!

I hate using screen protector and not even using a case, still the phone is entirely scratch-less all around (not just the screen). If you are reasonably careful, I am sure it can last like my S1 or S2 which are scratch-less forever.

When you scratch a
-> Corning Gorilla Glass. It may or may not get damaged. Depends on what you do.
-> The glass on SGR. Same.

So basically it comes down to how you treat your phone. The corning gorilla glass may say its scratch proof but its actually just scratch resistant.

Sgr doesnt have nfc compatibality and also dont have gorilla glass, if u wanna test remove your screen guard and just swipe a coin over your screen u will get a beutifull scratch.

I'm still a little in doubt if I will keep the phone or not, mainly due to the fear of a screen which is easily scratched. Most other phones out there uses Corning Gorilla Glass, but Galaxy R only uses "scratch-resistant" glass.
Also the new announcements at Mobile World Conference have my interest, e.g. to have a smaller-in-the-pocket phone with similar or better resolution.

What are you experiences so far? Have you made minor surface scratches or is the screen actually quite sturdy?

I would prefer not to use a screen protector.

Best regards, Martin / mhca

Amazing replies given here

But wait, how come ur getting a Galaxy R now?? I was under the impression that SGR was permanently discontinued! U better check the phone and its contents carefully before using it dude.

I use a capdase soft case and a gloss screen protector - no scratches till now. Although I must say my left pocket is reserved for my phone only and nothing else - no coins especially!

I have CGG on my moto xt720 and i have had few scratches when kept in pocket with keybunch and coins..!! That was after 1-2 months. Then i realised i should always put a screen guard (not the privacy guard which interferes the touch sensitivity) on any smartphone whatsoever..!
Now, on the day i bought my SGR, i put a screen guard and with a fake capdase back cover, its super safe and no visible scratches .. even after 5 months..
