    Use a screen protector. When you start getting scratches on the plastic, use car wax to buff them off. Problem solved!

    My screen didn't have any scratches after 9 months, and I drop it with great regularity. However, upon dropping it the other night the screen has smashed. Not sure what to do as I am on a 2 year contract.

    Are you happy to work off a broken screen? I guess not; get it replaced, and use a case since you drop it so frequently.

    No mate. Not sure what to do, seems expensive to get it fixed. May hold out for a few months and see what new devices are coming, keep saving and hope something good comes out. Getting really sick of my 1020 anyway as it is sooooo slow.

    As already stated multiple times, GG is quite easy to scratch. A grain of sand in your pocket which gets in contact with your screen is enough to scratch the glass. Maybe you got just that unlucky with your 1020 compared to your 920.
    The only way to really start improving this would be to use stronger materials, like Apple is aiming for with their sapphire glass.

    Oh i see mate, but i think GG is quite strong u know since i've seen video on youtube scratching lumia 920 with knife, hammer, nail, etc and the glass won't even scratch. It's just pretty dissapointing to saw that it would scratch just because of a sand :|

    I wish I would still have the links, but I've seen two German videos demonstrating just how easy GG scratches. They've also first used knives, keys and I think a nail or screw to scratch it, without much success. Then he placed two sandgrains he collected on the beach on too of the screen and moved them without much pressure: The scratches could be easily seen.

    I got my 1020 off of someone on Kijiji, she only had the phone for 1 month and my gosh the screen had TONS of scratches. I convinced her to give me the phone drastically reduced price as i could not believe how badly it was scuffed. To this day I have not added a single extra scratch to the device, no screen protector but a cheap $5 chase to contain the overheating so i can hold the device without problems. I had my 920 for a year without any scratches, i never use screen protectors and always keep phones in my pocket...i am shocked by how poorly she handled the device, or how bad the GG was made for the 1020. Shocking.

    O.o, so basicly GG Couldnt b scratched by heavy things but instead it could lose by sands? My Gosh. But i never used my new lumia 1020 harshly you know,there's even no sand at my home. Just used it same with my lumia 920, i wonder if the lumia 1020 GG is more durable than others now.
