    My first post so bigg hi to u all , sharing my experience with wp8

    I purchase white Nokia lumia 920 a week ago

    I had problem in downloading apps most of them were unavailable , all apps came available when i change my region from U.A.E to US :)

    So my major concern was OS and battery im pretty much satisfied with both

    i tried scratching screen with keys and wot not to impress my friends but i start noticing scratches when display is off :(

    Otherwise its a lovely phone lil bulky but HD screen and awesome camera quality make it desirable

    There are videos that show how 'indestructible' this phone is... It's not surprising really.

    The answer is there is a thin coating on the glass that reduces your phones susceptibility to get coated with grease (oleophobic), and it is this that you are seeing getting scratched. The glass is likely unaffected (depends how hard you scratched).

    Sadly you cannot un-scratch the coating and so will have those micro scratches forever. As you say... they are not noticeable when the phone is being used.

    Exactly...trying stuff like that is just asking for trouble. You have to be smart enough to separate marketing hype from reality. Any glass surface can scratch...

    Pheew, I was just about to play Fruit Ninja with my kitchen knife ;) - just kidding.

    It's sad that You scratched Your screen, but great that the damage is somewhat limited. Just enjoy the phone, one of the best the industry has to offer and definitely my preferred choice.

    And welcome to Mobile Nations, it is really a nice place. I enjoyed CrackBerry, Android Central and WPCentral so far and it is the place to go if You have questions or issues.
