Okay..

GG claiming this nonsense + science = Truth?

No.

In my own experience and my own life and my own dealings with a friggin smart phone, (iPhone and Galaxy versions) I'm quite clear that I am NOT wrong.

Science false advertising be damned.

Let me explain: It's quite hard to persuade someone that has put the theory to the test (unintentionally, mind you) and results were.. scratched screen. Science? It may be. Does that so called science apply to smart phone screens based on advertising from their manufacturers?

I think not.

Don't believe the hype. Smart phone screens are faaaar from being 'scratch resistant'. Although somewhat durable, to a degree. When I see it with my own eyes, I have to call BS. I'm sorry, guys. There's not, and will not be a single person here that knows this, that will dare take a key to their screen - just to prove a point. Because the odds are very much against them. They already know it from past scratched screens - without TRYING to do it.

Oh... wait.. a grain of sand would though. Right... And cow's will fly outta my butt afterwards. It was my lighter, it was the loose change. Do I believe a single or multiple (not a pocket full.. ) grains of sand tarnished my screen to the point of my becoming upset about it? Only one answer to that. Fiction can be fun...

You ppl are the very ones that large Corps of consumer products look for. The ones that believe the friggin advertisments about a product. I'll believe it when I see it. If I see with my own two eyes the very opposite, there's only one conclusion, right?

This is complete nonsense, but from my personal view. I don't mean to offend. It's just one of those things. Also, I have never used a screen protector. Perhaps it's time I did. But the damn thing better look like it doesn't even exist on my phone, because killing the the look of a device that I paid good money for with some crappy product THAT DOES SOMETHING BETTER THAN THE DEVICE I PAID FOR ORIGINALLY is enough to make me click.

Gotta take the good with the bad, eh?

I would prove that you can't scratch a phone screen (first gen Moto G which I think has Gorilla Glass 3), but the only camera I have is on said phone. I did try to scratch it using the knife (stainless steel) I use to cut bicycle cable housings and it's fine. My phones screen isn't exactly scratch free. I did get some scratches on it when it fell out of my pocket as I was riding a bike at 40 km/h (25 mph) and it slid along the road (I think made mostly of granite) for 10 or so metres (32 feet)

Two things:

1) That's a useless video for showing if a smart phone can or cannot get scratches based on quality of the vid alone. Pretty sure you knew this to begin with. It's a fair stretch and I feel I'm pretty damn sensitive to seeing such defects too. But that is still my own opinion, not trying to make that a fact.

2) There's no force on this earth that will get to believe a grain or two of sand in my pocket tarnished my screen in a 8-12 work day.

Yeah, I think that phone is gonna show scratches from that abuse.

I just can't see them with such low quality video. Please feel free to try again though. I'm up for a watch. Seriously, it's quite interesting. smile.gif

It's not a nonsense claim, there is a science involved.

Just so people know, putting a screen protector prevent scratches which make your glass much more vulnerable to shattering.

As someone who goes to the beach on the daily, my car / house / clothes ALWAYS have sand in the summer. So yes, a screen protector is useful.
