Pretty sure that your pocket had sand.
Gorilla glass has a hardness of about 5 on the Mohs hardness scale.
Anything higher than that will scratch. Quartz sand has a hardness of 7. Metal has about 4 or 5.
Rookie mistake.

The otterbox performed outstandingly, and all that was required of me was to use common sense: Don't expect your phone to remain immaculate forever when you fully know it will not, but make preservative efforts so as to make it last as long as you can.

Most phone contracts last for what? Two years? You can be careful with an expensive device that you need to keep for that long. Just be respectful of it, don't be a wild animal throwing it around, and just act like the adult you are. No matter what you do, if you drive your car, it will eventually get some dirt on it. Same thing with a phone. Just be a good owner, and take care of the phone (car), knowing that it will be taking a bit of a beating while you own it. There is no need for threads this long about how upset we get about scratches. It's part of the phone contract. You get a new one every once and a while. Just relax, and treat it with respect.

Yeah ...well said ..still haven't got my car yet but yeah ..lol.
It's that I never use any of my phones without case and protector. .this was just a mistake and ...screen protectors weren't available at that time ..atleast they weren't in my reach...

A tip to hide hard or bad or a group of hard scratches.
Ingredients/requirements

Deodorant
Cleaning cloth
Perfume
Tempered glass protector

The procedure. ..
...clean with a cloth..
spray deodorant
wipe it ...
then spray perfume on the scratches
Don't not wipe
Then apply a tempered glass protector WITHOUT WIPING THE perfume that you sprayed ....

I always put phones in my pocket, without screen protectors. I work in an industrial setting and not once have I ever had those kinds of scuffs/scratches like shown in the photos here.
