    I know some other phone owners out there noticed there 8x's screens were scratching much much MUCH easier than one would expect from Gorilla Glass 2. I was wondering if anybody had these issues, or worked anything out with HTC

    I have both a tmobile and Verizon 8x and they both had scratches within about 1 month, even with babying them. My Droid X did not have a single scratch after 2 1/2 years and I work in a construction related industry so I'm around dirt, rock and heavy equipment. I think either gorilla glass 2 sucks, there was a bad run, or the curved glass causes it to be exposed.

    Either way I'm very disappointed. I would have put a screen protector on from the get go, but I didn't ever have a problem with my Droid, so I figured I would get the same result from essentially the same product.

    In addition putting screen protectors on the 8x sucks, again because of the curved glass the screen protector has to be smaller (not covering the entire face) or it will end up popping up on the edges.

    Never trust the word resistant. The only sure fire way to avoid scratches all together is to use a screen protector, if you don't you're just accepting the fact that it's going to scratch or assuming scratch resistant means scratch proof... which it does not.

    I know it sounds crazy, but I haven't used a phone without a screen protector in ages. Before I finally purchase a phone I always order screen protectors and cases, so that when it arrives, the first thing I do when I remove it from the box is slap a protector on it. This way if I want to upgrade in the future or if I change my mind and want something different, it will look practically new.
