Default Anyone heard of this one? Scratchs on screen?

I was over at the Verizon store yesterday doing something totally unrelated, when I pulled out my DNA TO READ a text and this (up to this point) salesperson, was doing quite well. He then tried to sell me a screen protecter, saying it was "critical I have one to protect my warranty." He went on to explain that if the phone is returned for warranty for any reason, that if they can see any, including extremely minor hard to see scratches, the warranty is NULL AND VOID. I told him THAT is the worst salespitch I have ever heard. He then proceded to try and find a minor scratch by looking at my screen in any angle and light (and couldn'tfind one). Said I was extremely lucky to have had this phone since launch day and not have any scratchs, and AGAIN tried to sell me a screen protecter. Huh???

I might add, that I am an extremely heavy (addicted) smartphone user (using phone all day for business and all night for personal use.) To this point, I have had 2 blackberry's, a fascinate, a nexus, and now DNA. Never had a screen protecter on any phone, and have had a few extremely (hard to detect) scratches over the years. (told him THAT and he is telling me I am the luckiest guy in town). I am still laughing.

Even though this is gorilla glass 2 it can still scratch, obviously it's harder to scratch but I feel safer with one on and have always had screen protectors on mine and sometines they save large scratches from happening. The ones at verizon suck as they don't cover the entire screen but I think having one is a nice added later of protection. Just my thoughts.

The Verizon one covers the screen and buttons, but there is still glass exposed especially if you don't have a case on as well.

I can speak first hand that the screen definitely scratches (i have about 6 or so). That being said, it did withstand a face down drop from about 2 feet.
