Depends on pressure during friction. Its easy to try.wink.gif

Already did bro, it won't scratch no matter how much pressure you apply, it will break if you apply too much pressure but it won't scratch.

Hardness vs toughness, learn the difference.

You guys are misinformed as the guy who asked that "if diamond is the hardest, why does it break when smashed by a hammer?" Or you probably think that the diamond won't shatter because its the hardest mineral on earth.

The main reason that happens is because of internal flaws in the diamond. A low-grade industrial diamond shatters easily. But you are correct that hardness isn't everything, not by a long shot.

Russian military issue watches don't use sapphire crystals for this very reason. They'd just shatter. They actually use an acrylic that is maybe a 2.5 on the Mohs scale, but which never, ever breaks or shatters, no matter if you run a tank over it (they have literally done this in testing) or take it 200m under water. It's not hard, but it's tough as hell.

This is awesome, I know some people will think its stupid or useless, but you'll be surprise on how many cell phone buyer are a PITA about screen protector (Used to work in one of the Carriers store). So this is pretty neat, less complaining from the customer about reps putting on horrible screen protector lol.

I sell screen protectors all the time. Literally 2 out of 3 phones leave my store with screen protectors. I personally think they are essential. I have seen dozens of broken and scratched up phones so the idea of a screen protector, makes a lot of sense to me. Not to mention that I myself have a fairly scratched up LG V10 that I have no idea how it got that way.

Lol, no. Even if you can find a perfect diamond, it will shatter just as easy, because they are hard but not tough. Just google TOUGHNESS VS HARDNESS those are two different things.

I'm sorry, but that is absolutely absurd.

You even have people in this very thread that are in the business of selling and fixing phones, explaining that they see scratched phones on a daily basis. And I myself have scratched a iPhone 5 and Samsung GS3 screen with nothing more than a couple quarters being in the same pocket. Perhaps your definition of 'scratch' and mine are entirely different. I am personally extremely visually sensitive to any blemish's on my phones screen. That's if it's on or off.

A scratch is a scratch is a scratch, and to act like it's just impossible to happen is a pretty ridiculous claim.

I'm not taking a key to my screen, because I know damn good and well I'll be left with a ugly scratch on my phone afterwards. There's a clear reason why I think this would be the case. And it ain't because I went out of my way to test this fact, It happened quite easily and without purposeful force.

Dude, i'm not saying that gg is scratch proof because it isn't, what i'm saying is that your regular keys and your coins can't scratch gg, its just plain science.

I fail to understand how your 'science' is actually correct in the face of, oh, I dunno.. facts? To say otherwise is pretty much calling every single person with a scratched phone from change or sand in the same pocket a liar. I mean come on, you cannot be serious. This happens, there's kinda no way to deny it.
