    I'm so used to android phones which scratch very easily on the plastic, or the iPhone 4 which scratches so easily on the band around it. But I haven't been able to scratch this blue polycarbonate.... Anyone scratched theirs yet??

    Nope, not worrying about it either. The colour will show all the way through, so scratches should hardly be noticeable. Just worried about the screen.

    My phone took a nasty tumble last night. I was a little tipsy from drinking and dropped it. I immediately picked it up, inspected it and found absolutely zero scratches or damage. I'm always adamant about using a case. I'm not going to use a case with my Lumia because it's so great to hold and now I realize the polycarbonate is pretty sturdy and can hold up after a drop.

    Until you woke up the next morning and it was actually completely shattered. lol jk.
    I wish there was a screen protector that put a shield over the screen and not just one of those little clear films. Oh well. I'll be careful for a while.

    I think someone put a picture up on this forum of a dropped Lumia 900. The Glass was still intact, but the screen underneath had cracked. So I would not be too worried about the glass... Gorilla Glass in general is really good, my old focus I dropped on pavement and gravel a few times from about 3-4 feet, and even having landed on the screen, there were not many scratches.

    I chipped the corners of my L900 after dropping it in the sidewalk.

    Everything was "fixed" after I purchased some 1500 sand paper and smoothed out the edges.

    I love this material! :-)
