1. They scratch because they made of plastic and not glass

2. Dunno

3. You can buy a set of lens protector from slickwraps or you can buy the nillkin glass H+ screen protector and they give a set of lens protector(that is what I have)

4. Some people have loose volume rocker(like me ). Some others have adhesive on the speaker grills. Others have a couple dead pixels. Personally I have only the loose volume rocker, not a big deal....

FYI not everyone has scratches to the actual lens of the camera so it's not necessarily because of the material of the lens. From my personal experience with this phone it was the coating that was on the lens that was actually scratching. It was bothering me for the longest time because I thought I had scratches all over it. I used Qtips and toothpaste to polish off the coating and now the camera looks flawless.
