Well it finally happened. First time in years I have ever f'ed up the screen on a phone. At work tonight slipped out of my hand and on to the floor and slid about 3 foot face down. I had the shipping screen cover on it (waiting on a real one off Ebay) so i ended up with a very small dent/ding in the screen. Not terribly noticeable but i know its there. HA! So to everyone out there, get a decent screen protector on there ASAP. Dont let the hype fool you, It aint indestructable.

I actually heard LG didn't put Gorilla glass on the G2x but the o2x has it. I don't know if it's true or not but I have read it in a couple places.

Its scratch resistant... Not fall resistant. It can still get scratch if you take a key and deliberately scratch it. They're meaning of scratch resistant is if you take your finger nail and just lightly go over the screen.

Does it really use gorilla glass? Before, my tab got hit by the metal part of a can opener thanks to a stupid classmate of mine, and nothing happened.

According to Corning the Optimus 2X has it so I would think the g2x has it as well

LG product page g2x specifically says Corning Gorilla glass so yes we have it. Sorry about your accident.

At least it's a dent, not broken glass.

just had this happen to me last night, extensive damage to glass, but digitzer and lcd work.
i dont have insurance, so today i decided to call LG mobile phone
customer care at 800-793-8896.

I looked at options to do this myself, but it sounds like that would void my warranty,
which i think ill need later.

They answered the phone quickly and were very professional.
I told the man what happened and he gave me a repair authorization and an address
to ship it to.

When i asked about. costs he said anywhere from $40 to $100 but ill post an update after they contact me. im waiting for my replacement mytouch to come back. before i ship this one out.

I know assurion charges a. deductible of around $130.

On LG's website it says gorilla glass was used for the G2x

I tried taking a key to one of my replacement G2x's and it didn't leave a scratch!
