Got off the phone with Sony. They say that it is scratch resistant as well as the back, though not as well

I thought both panels of glass on the Z1 are DragonTrail glass? Seems like it's tough stuff.
I've seen a couple of scratch tests on youtube, and they both went very well. One used a scalpel as the final tool though, and IIRC that started to scratch it up.

I'd always leave the ASF film on the phone, and if it starts to get scratched up, I'd just pull it off and replace it with a new one. Keeps the glass in perfect condition, plus if the glass did shatter after a drop, you would be able to keep using the phone without risking cutting your fingers up. Makes sense to me...

Talked with T-Mobile Tech support and specifically asked them if they know for sure the glass under the screen is scratch resistant. The rep I talked to said specifically he has seen were people have lifted the plastic and tested it and while it is not has good as Gorilla Glass, it is indeed scratch resistant.

Funny enough, I went to the Sony store and the guys there had no idea.

It's a tempered glass and as a glass is well scratch resistant but I will not pretend to much.
