I just did it to my phone. I took out my car key and applied it firmly to the screen and then rubbed vigorously. I see no marks.

Y'all are getting ripped on the store bought screen protectors. They are like $.05 worth of film for $20. And no they don't have to be specialized for touch screens. Any film works.

Also gorilla glass sucks. Every cracked screen I've ever seen was gorilla glass. Dropped plenty non-gorilla glass phones and surprise surprise they didn't crack. One of my buddies had a cheapy smart phone for years, it went through hell and back, dropped a million times, paint wearing off the plastic, screen scratched to oblivion, but no cracks. Same guy got a new phone with gorilla glass and it was cracked in the first week.

Just keep my pockets clean? Why haven't I thought of that!?

I'm sure my boss would love me telling him I need to go on break to flip my pockets inside out and vacuum all the sand and dust from the jobsite out. Just so I don't scratch my phone I didn't put a screen protector on.

Not all of us work a 9-5 deskjob in an air conditioned and highly filtered building. I work construction & fabrication. I used my old HTC One M7 (gorilla glass) without a screen protector, and the screen got scratched up within weeks just from sand accumulating in my pockets over the course of a day. Got any dirt or mud stuck to your fingers and swipe across the screen? Hah! Say hello to some nice deep scratches horizontally right across the face of the screen. I did that more than once.

My S5 Active has a case with a screen protector now. I still have to routinely take it out of the case to clean any sand out that gets behind the plastic protector.

I could hassle myself and waste tons of time on an hourly basis to constantly wash my hands and clean my pockets out - OR - spend $5 on a screen protector and not worry about my phone, and just replace the protector when it gets too scratched up after a couple of months. I know I've made my choice.

Better get those pre-iphone nokias then,

Gorilla glass is extremely brittle. The way it works is the crystal latice forms in such a way that its bonds are strongest on one plane, but the cost of that is they are weaker on others. If you get a sheet of GG3 and tap it on the sides and not on its face it will shatter immediately. If a phone drops a certain way, or if the phone doesn't protect the screen correctly, GG3 will shatter.

Honestly I would prefer tempered glass too since it feels much nicer than plastic.

I hate to see any scratch when screen is off or on or from any angle.
Thats why i use tempered glass. Got always few of them in my closet and replace them at first sign of scratch.
I use my phones for period of two years and after 2 years they look like new,mint condition.

No, it depends on the hardness of the key. Trying to scratch Gorilla Glass with a key made out of brass (what most keys are made of) would be like trying to scratch a coin using cardboard.
