    If that's what you do, then maybe you should prioritize a device with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. The 8S has it. It's inferior in every other way to the Lumia 820 (particularly camera, memory, and onboard storage), but it's got Gorilla Glass.

    Personally, I keep my phone in a pocket on its own because, even if the screen was made of bulletproof unobtanium, I don't want the remaining 60% of the phone's surface to be covered in scuffs and scratches. For this sort of use, I'm not sure that brand X scratch-resistant glass is really any worse than Corning Gorilla Glass 2 (TM).
    Loyal first and foremost to a carrier (US Cellular). Open to either a Lumia 820, or an HTC 8X, or an Ativ S.

    FYI - the Samsung Galaxy Nexus does NOT have gorilla glass. Instead it uses fortified glass. There's videos online of it going through scratch tests. The more I think about it I'm not really worried about screen the 820 has. Sure the resolution can be higher but if it's as clear as the 900 I'll be happy.

    My 4.3" HD7 has a measly 1230mah battery. 1650 would be a HUGE upgrade.

    If they had given it 720p resolution, it would have been my next phone. I may have even bought one before my upgrade.

    As it is, it is a nice phone but it's not compelling me to part with my money at all.

    I think there's a strong possibility we will see aftermarket extended batteries thanks to the removable back/replaceable battery.

    A nice 2000 MaH battery upgrade from Nokia or even SEIDO would be an attractive option.

So you go with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for your flagship due to name recognition, and you go with brand X scratch-resistant glass on the mid-range device for 90% the scratch resistance with 50% of the cost.
    90% the scratch resistance for 50% the cost?

    Is that pure speculation or do you have some verifiable data for that?

    You dug up an old discussion here, last post was about 7 months ago. Mods need to close this.
