I have been using this phone for about 2 weeks now. I never put it in one pocket with keys and did not drop it as of date.

What I have noticed is that Gorilla glass Victus is pretty bad at microscratches (I heard its a bit softer). There are well over a dozen scratches on the surface by now and it is not obvious to me that any hard material comes to contact with my phone that could be causing them other than random grains of sand.

How does your phones fare in this regard?

Sand and grit. It will mar any glass.
Even dry skin is abrasive to glass.
Use a plastic screen protector some of which actually hold up better than glass. I use Gorilla IQ Sheild, a wet apply that lasts 6-12 months.
My 10+ is over 1.5 years old with no scratches whatsoever on the display.

I got a few scratches (2-3) in the first few days and didn't notice any new ones lately. I guess it helped that I vacuumed the pockets in my work clothes :D

Same here. I mostly use the phone with me right thumb. I can see tiny scratches exactly there. My typical scroll move.

Actually I want to use a screen protector but there seems to be no protector that doesn't stops the fingerprint reader from working.
