    Sand/dirt/grit are going to be the things that scracth these things people. And yes, we all inevitably get a bit of sand/dirt/grit into our pockets/bags/purses. It's just the way things go unfortunately. I have full faith that the knife isn't going to scratch the phone. Sprinkle a couple grains of beach sand and wipe them off with a microfiber cloth and see what happens. Guaranteed hairline scratches.

    I've kept my L920 in my purse along with keys, makeup, change, etc. My screen is still beautifully flawless. However today I looked at the back of my phone in the sun and noticed a couple micro scratches, but they're hardly noticeable unless you're really looking. Nevertheless, I'll be purchasing something to put my phone in to prevent future scratching as my phone will usually be in a purse unless I'm using it.

    Edit: I have now noticed MANY micro scratches on the screen as well. Didn't notice them before because they are, well, micro :) seriously, they are very hard to notice unless you hold the phone at an angle in direct light, but yes they are there, and there are many.

    Well for what is worth i was today at grand opening at Microsoft Yorkdale Mall in Toronto and they had couple of Lumia 920 on displays so since i did not want to try this on mine
    i used my ring with diamonds and car keys and i really "Tested" the screen if you know what i mean in every motion possible...
    Well after a good minute or so trying to scratch the screen in every possible way i could not do it, after i wiped the screen clean i could not see a single scratch on it.
    I tried that on the back too, this is black mat color, while i did wiped it clean i could see some micro-scratches but nothing drastic.

    I can tell you if i tried the above test on the iPhone i would not be sure of the results.

    I don't have the 920 yet but for those people who can easily scratch their phones, is it possible the phone came with a screen protector or a really transparent plastic?

    I also have a Lumia 920 that has scratches on the screen which in my opinion are happening incredibly easy. My previous phone was a LG Quantum which has gorilla glass, and in the same pockets/places, it only got 1 scratch over a year and a half+. About one week with my lumia 920 and I have a deep scratch, a long scratch, and several small scratches. They are hard to take pictures of as they look like dust mostly in the pictures, besides the long one. I have attached the picture of my long scratch, best achieved by trying to angle a flashlight just perfectly to show it.dscn1727.jpg

    Same here exactly. I am a women, i have my phone in a case and carry it in a purse in a pocket made for cell phones facing in.

    Gorilla glass 2 isn't as good as the original.

    I've been thinking about this issue, since I find it weird that this is happening, and seemingly only to some of us. A few questions to those who have gotten scratches. Is your phone the white phone like mine? or a different color? if so, what color? Has your phone ever gotten hot while in your pocket? Has your battery life been inconsistent?

    My phone is white. It is a Nokia Lumia 920 with 11/9 written on the box indicating it was an original release phone. My battery has been inconsistent. If my phone gets hot while in my pocket, which it does sometimes, the battery seems to drain very quickly. If it does not get hot in my pocket, the battery seems to last really long.

    I am wondering if the heat/battery issue has anything to do with the scratching. If Gorilla Glass 2 gets warm/hot, does it scratch easier? I wonder....

    I bought my white lumia 920 last sunday. The phone is used heavily for texting, email, music, tweets ect. I sometimes do put my phone in the same pocket as my keys (usually if im in a hurry getting out of the car) I do have a few scratches on the back of the phone that are hard to see but no scratches on the front.
    the first couple of days it had horrible battery life, after blocking a few programs from running in the background, discharging the phone completely and recharging it to full, the battery life is great, can last a full work day.

    I contacted Nokia about this. So far, they seem to be less than concerned. If anyone wants to read my conversation with them, here it is. I edited the conversation a little for privacy reasons.



    Robbie: Hi, my name is Robbie. Thank you for contacting Nokia Care Chat. How may I help you?

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    Who should I contact regarding issues with my Nokia Lumia 920 display scratching very easily?

    Robbie
    I am sorry to hear that. Let me see what I can do to assists you with your concern. Before we proceed, may I know your full name please?

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    Willy Wonka

    Robbie
    Thank you for the information Willy. May I know what exactly happen to the phone while the screen display have a scratch?

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    I was carrying my phone in my pocket as I always have done at work. There is no case or screen protector, and there were no sharp objects or hard objects at all in my pocket.

    Robbie
    I see, I would like to inform you that the Nokia Lumia 920 corning gorilla glass is a scratch resistant glass.

    Robbie
    Not fully scratch proof and it may have a scratch.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    I do know this. it's actually Gorilla Glass 2, which is scratch resistant. I have subjected it to the same environments that my older phone was subjected to, which has Gorilla Glass 1. That phone never had an issue with getting scratched in the same environments and conditions.

    Robbie
    Thank you for the information. However it depends on the usage of the phone if it will have a scratch on it.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    I would expect some superficial small scratches as it is a very high gloss finish, and also protrudes from the phone slightly on the front, however, my biggest concern happened yesterday while at work, with nothing at all in my pocket, I noticed a sudden deep scratch, seemingly from nowhere. I can actually feel it if I run my fingernail gently over the surface.

    Robbie
    I see, while your phone is on your pocket did you bump yourself to any hard edges?

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    nothing at all. There are no incidents to be reported.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    I am certain this is an problem possibly with a batch of the Nokia Lumia 920, as 2 of the forums I frequent have users reporting the exact same problems.

    Robbie
    I would like to inform you that we do not have any information regarding to forums or other third party websites.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    That's ok, I was just letting you know what I have come across.

    Robbie
    Thank you for understanding. Since it is a hardware issue and we do not have any procedures can be done on the phone.

    Robbie
    Your best option is to contact your point of purchase for a replacement.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    Are there any kind of batch codes or anything I can try to track to see if this is related to all Lumia 920s or just a specific batch?

    Robbie
    There are not specific batch code for the Nokia Lumia 920 phone that are release.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    Alright. I understand Nokia does not make the glass, so I have also contacted corning regarding this issue.

    Robbie
    I see, may I know what information they have provided you?

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    Nothing yet, I just emailed them.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    If they do send me any information, should I forward it to you?

    Robbie
    Okay let us know what information they have provided you. For the mean time your best option is to have a replacement from your point of purchase.

    Robbie
    Yes, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Robbie
    I will be providing you a reference number of this chat conversation.

    Robbie
    You are most welcome. Yes, you may print out our conversation from you end.

    invizibleyez@aol.com
    Thank you for your attention. I hope this problem isn't too large when it is all said and done. I do love the phone, I'm just worried about it's longevity at this point.

    Robbie
    You are most welcome Willy. No worries, I will be treating your concern as a feedback from my end to improve the said phone in the future

    Robbie
    Are you still there Willy?

    A picture of my phone's scratch: opkiv.jpg

    From sliding a couple inches off an open book onto my desk at work. The scratch is indented and you can feel it.

    i know exactly how that happened, am betting you were wearing jeans right? see those iron circle buttons at the right side top end of your pocket? sometimes those can cut into the inside of your jeans and be a bit exposed, so when you are pulling your phone out of your pocket, it rubs against that little exposed part of the iron rivet like thing and wholla theres the scratch on your screen.

    Here is my red 920 after a week. Pulled it out of my pocket (kept seperate from other items) and noticed the fine scratches across the center of the screen. Am I having too high of expectations for durability?

    As an observation, my 800 is covered in scratches. I've always assumed that the Gorilla glass claims were hot air. Will try and post a pic later.

    Ju11ce: Why are the scratches so concentrated? Some scratches are bound to happen but that seems excessive.

    Perhaps we can try to take some sort of info down on when and where the phone was purchased. Were these all ATT phones that were scratched? I am assuming yes, but would like to confirm. Thanks

    Wow, that's much worse than what I've experienced. However, most of mine are in the same general location. My guess is that it is from the slide up to unlock and scrolling motions when using the phone one-handed.

    Only got my Lumia 920 yesterday and after reading this thread I glanced down at my beautiful phone to see a huge scratch in the corner of the screen. I was horrified! On closer inspection it turned out to be a dog hair, and my screen is still in fact pristine as expected :)

    If you're worried about scratches get a screen protector. I put one on the day i got my 920. Some say that having one on ruins the screen quality. Scratches ruin the screen quality in my opinion.

    This. After a little over a week, I've got no scratches on my 920. I keep it in a pocket by itself, although a few times I had a few coins in my pocket. My Galaxy Nexus, with its Gorilla Glass screen, mysteriously got a deep scratch on it a month after similar treatment. My Focus, same screen as my Nexus, got a few light scratches after a few months. While i do think the claims of Gorilla glass are at times a bit overhyped, it's important to realize that others have said, it's scratch resistant, not scratch proof.
    Yes, I'm on Twitter.

    I went ahead and bought an Invisible Shield in the universal size (3.72" x 4.93") and cut it to fit. Looks great so far, although it makes the screen feel a little "grabby". This will do until there is a better selection of screen protectors available.

    I'm pretty sure my wedding ring (Tungsten) caused the light scratches on mine.
