    I thought the Lumia 900 had a gorilla glass, what the ****, I take it out of my pocket and the screen lightly touches a metal button above my pocket, and there you go a scratch, that’s really disappointing, my brother have a Samsung galaxy 2, he throws this thing all over the place no covers no protectors, and its scratch free (screen and body). the guy at ATT told me they have tough screens and no need to put a protector unless the finger prints annoys me or I tend to drop the phone a lot.

    Gorilla Glass is just more difficult to scratch. Not impossible. Either way that sucks. I feel your pain. :(

    Yeah, I don't know why people think that Gorilla glass is unscratchable. Yes it's tough, but it does scratch, and yes, they do shatter.

    Seems like the Lumia 800 is more scratch and shatter proof than its big brother. So far so good on my 900 though, fingers crossed.

    So far, so good. Not a single scratch on my Focus, Surround or 900.

    I even make it a habit to lay my 900 face down on a table so the camera bezel doesnt get scratched up.

    The Focus is damn near indestructible lol My girlfriend drops hers like 5 times a day and it's in perfect condition. I leave mine in my pocket with keys pushed against the screen and never had a scratch or anything.

    I do the same my L900 and it's scratch free too.


    To the OP:

    I thought you got a Titan II??

    Got a small scratch on my 900 also. Not sure how. So I relented and put a screen protector on it. Looks like crap but no more scratches.

    I looked at the Titan, itís nice, but I couldnít give up the AMOLED screen and the Nokia Exclusives, also compared the front camera, N is way better, also colors and graphics are much better, the Lumia is a great phone, but I guess I had bad luck, so I just kept trying to till I got a nice working device.

    It is Gorilla Glass, but Gorilla Glass is very scratch-resistant, not scratch-proof. It's not a sapphire watch crystal, it's still glass.

    Sorry to hear that though.

    The good news is, scratches CAN be polished out of Gorilla Glass. There are some DIY's online for the not feint of heart, or you can send the phone off to have it done for you.

    I am very careful with my phones and I noticed a few very light scratches on my screen already if you look at it in the right light. It's nothing that anybody would ever notice during normal use, but it's still kind of discouraging considering I haven't done anything that should have caused any kind of scratches at all.

    My iPhone had the same thing though so I think it's more common than you'd think. Most people just wouldn't ever notice them.
