    Simple question for you 1520 owners.

    Previously I had the L920, which got few small sratches in just few weeks.

    I then changed to the Ativ S, which I used for one and half years without any scratches appearing to the screen. And that phone was dropped many times, even on asphalt (lucky there I know). The whole housing of the Ativ was totally dent, but on the screen nothing.

    To me its clear that the Ativ had stronger screen than the Lumia, but how about the L1520?
    I believe the 1520 comes with Gorilla Glass 3 which should provide it with a decent level of protection from everyday scratches but not from drops.

    I would seriously advise using a screen protector especially because it provides a decent level of protection while also not impacting the responsiveness of the display.

    Some 1520s have specific touch problems for which you could claim warranty but if you somehow manage to break the display warranty can't be claimed.

    I don't have a screen protector but I got this case with a magnet lock. It also doubles as a stand so you can watch films. Can't believe it cost three pounds. Have a look

    I can personally recommend this case myself. Even putting cards in there doesn't touch the screen when you close the case

    You guys need to try tempered glass screen protectors. They have the same glassy look and feel as original screen, and adds only 0,3mm-0,55mm depending on manufacturer. Yes they glare a bit, doesn't bother me though. They sell cheap at ebay.

    I am thinking about that. But if I keep my case on my phone and nothing else in my pockets apart from my phone (no spare change, keys etc..) then I should be good. But as you pointed out...a glass screen protector is a good move and may get one too for extra protection. Can you give a link to a recommended seller ?

    The 1520 has Gorilla Glass 2.....

    Yes Gorilla Glass 2 on the 1520, 930 has Gorilla Glass 3.

    Im just little worried because of the so easily scratched L920. It seems though that there arent many reporting sctatching their 1520 easily?

    Anyway I ordered few regular protectors and one tempered glass one. The regular ones are so cheap on eBay and I wanted to see one of those glass ones in real life. Not sure will I be using any of those at the end though.

    A case would be nice for protection, but I have a feeling that it would be on the way. I dont use a wallet neither :D

    My point remains valid, Gorilla Glass are designed to keep the phone safe from scratches with keys and sometimes even knives.

    But in a drop the Gorilla Glass won't survive.

    I think looking at it now, that the Lumia 920 had Gorilla Glass 1 and the Ativ-S Gorilla Glass 2. I can tell you the difference on scratch resistance on those was HUGE.

    Another thing I just noticed... The screen on my 1520 is not totally in level. We are talking about very small difference, but still clearly visible when looking from the bottom (or top), the screen is about half mm higher on the right side...

    Wow that must be quite annoying. Nokia seriously needs to address the display issues on their otherwise amazing devices.

    Agree about your valid point, but just making sure you have the correct information about the 1520...

    Had mine since last Dec, no screen protector and not a single tiny scratch or scuff on the screen. I also never keep my phone anywhere but my right pocket and never put anything in my pocket with it. Also I never place my phone screen down anywhere.

    Showed the device at Nokia's service center today, its 5 minute walk from my house. The guy said yes the screen might have glue failed and I should bring it in. So its going in tomorrow.

    I got new screen replaced to my 1520 under warranty. Took the device in Wednesday and got it back on Friday already, simple as 1-2-3. However when I powered the device on in the evening, I noticed a crazy rattling sound from the vibration, so its going back in tomorrow morning.

    I'm using the ArmorSuit MilitaryShield - Nokia Lumia 1520.

    These are the ONLY screen protectors I'll buy for any device. The quality is astounding, the application process is rather simple, and to boot, there's a lifetime replacement warranty.

    I currently use a tempered glass protector with my 1520.3 mainly because of the feel.
    I had no problems at all with my L920 and scratches, drops, etc. despite the fact that I did drop it on several occasions. I tend to keep my phone in a separate pocket from my keys, etc. so that probably helps. However, if you could let me know the tempered class screen protector you are using, I would appreciate it.
