Gorilla glass has a hardness rating of between 622-700 on the HV10 scale. In order for an object to scratch it then it must have a hardness rating of 700 or greater.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorilla_Glass

Coins, like quarters and dimes, are made out of coprenickel, which is a copper nickel alloy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarter_(United_States_coin)

Copernickel has a hardness rating of between 90-140, and a bit more if you if you use cold working.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cupronickel

https://www.nickelinstitute.org/~/Media/Files/TechnicalLiterature/Copper_NickelAlloys_PropertiesandApplications_12007_.pdf

So no, coins cannot scratch gorilla glass. Neither can anything else in your pocket.

Some of the silicates in sand, or the hardened minerals in rocks can have a hardness rating greater than 700, but coins and keys do not. If you work in a rock query get a screen protector. The rest of us are probably safe.

Scratches come from other sources though. Drop your phone on the ground and let it slide any distance on the screen. You will immediately see the need for a quality screen protector, I don't care what kind of glass its made out of. For me the risk of any scratch is too great not to spend $10 on a tempered glass protector. Even a single scratch on my screen is absolutely maddening to me...

Let me also add that I agree with others that usually a screen protector alters the feel and look of a screen unacceptably for my use but this tempered glass one I got at Verizon is perfect. The screen looks and feels identical to other Note 5's in the store with no protector and I was lucky that the girl (who was a total cutie btw) is apparently a pro at installations; it is perfectly straight with a small bubble only just recently forming in the corner (went 6 moths with no bubbles so no clue where this one came from)...

Then you should be using a case, not a screen protector, it won't save your screen from drops.

I think you can also bring in your Prius and they'll change your oil for you.

I must use my phones wrong then because every phone i've had has had the screen scratched to hell except my current note 4, which has a plastic screen protector on it. Moto atrix, htc one, htc one m8, all scratched badly all looked like I drug them down a gravel road when I was done with them lol

Edit: Just pulled out my box of old phones and my old sidekick lx still has a flawless screen lol

Even when I have headphone with my phone i have the jack always plugged in even in pocket.

Same here, I'm work for a electrical company. So I'm in dirty areas a lot, I come home covered on grain dust and whatnot all the time. My Phone has taken some nasty drops, and have hit concert face first. Can't find a single scratch.


I myself can't stand screen protectors, they take away the experience of using the phone, and add an annoying layer to the phone. I can't even stand using anything more than a thin case.

I keep my phone with the screen side facing my leg in my pocket, with nothing else in my pocket. As we have two pockets for a reason, keep your keys and change in the other one.

My Phone came out around the time the iPhone 6 did, so around 2 years ago. It is still in mint condition, and no annoying layer is on my screen taking away from the quality and responsiveness.



If people are scratching their phones, I question what they are doing. As if landing face first doesn't do it, I don't know what will.

Alright team, it comes down to personal preference.

If you prefer to have one installed, this a great way to have one installed neatly.
If you do not wish to have one installed, this product is not for you.

Never used screen protectors, and only ever used cases to cover the back with a print for aesthetics. I guess for those who want the extra protection can go for it, but what gets me is the people who put matte protectors/films on their screens, completely destroys the clarity of the display.

nonsense, the force required to break gorilla glass already exceeds the tolerance of these "screen protectors".
if we're speaking "cracking the screen" these screen protectors would only add like 1% more durability, and thats already being optimistic.
as for scratches... gorilla glass is nearly as scratch proof as sapphire glass, to the point that anything short of hard alloys and crystals can't scratch it.

these screen protectors are pointless, useless things, even a simple flip-cover is a hundred times more protective than this junk.
