I've owned my Samsung Focus since 12/26/10. I use it daily. I am careful not to put my keys and phone in the same pocket. I will admit to using my shirt to wipe smudges off my screen. It does not have a screen protector.

Is it normal to have so many small scratches all over the front of my screen?

I'm starting to wonder if there aren't some differences in Focii out there. I've only had mine a month, but it gets wiped, most often on the leg of my jeans, and has yet to have a single scratch, small or otherwise. I'll count myself lucky, but you should check out the gorilla glass thread going on here.

What may appear to be scratches could be the opposite of a scratch. Deposition of materials on the surface. I have a Motion Computing J3500 Tablet with Gorilla Glass. It looks like it has scratches sometimes, but it it actually fine marks from the digitizer pen. Some good hard rubbing with my microfiber cleaning cloths gets the job done.

Picture proof.

I'll use the suggestion of wiping hard with a microfiber though

edit: says I can't link you guys to the photo:-/

"Dear Paul,
Thank you for your inquiry.
We do apologize for the inconvenience. Apparently, the Samsung Focus is not using Gorilla Glass and we did not know how you utilize the use of your phone. If there would be scratches we advise you to use a protective screen on the phone.
Thank you for your continued interest in Samsung products.
Sincerely,
Technical Support
Kaye"

bummmer.....I have had mine since November 8th and no scratches. No screen protector.

I believe you still have to be carefull. Nothing in your pocket with your phone.

You have to use common sense here as NOTHING in this world that says scratch resistant is really scratch resistant.

Some sand particles in your pocket can scratch any material besides diamonds.

Huh, this phone has to be using Gorilla glass. I've taken my car keys to the screen just to demonstrate it to other people, haha.

That said, my phone screen has no scratches. It wipes clean and looks as good as the day it came out of the box. There are a few on the back cover, but that's it.
