Anyone else already scratched their screen? Seems it's not made of the same hard-to-scratch material from other phones. I've only had the phone two days and already have some scratches on the screen.
I do NOT put any else on the same pocket with my phone. Seems to be from putting my phone in and out of my pocket.
Am I just the only unlucky one?

If you really do mind those little details, better get a case or screen protector.
It works fine for me without one :-)

Please note that by doing it you'll be killing the whole oleophobic layer and your screen will have no thin scratches but will be a smudge magnet.
I did it once, but probably won't do it with my 920 because these scratches don't bother me anymore.

I know I go against the grain but I have my wallet in one of my pockets and my keys on the other. No way I want my phone next to my wallet so I just use a holster. Microfiber lining makes it impossible to scratch. I use to have my iphone4s in my pocket and I could see the superficial light scratches which would bother me a bit.

Is it possible for you to show us a picture of the scratch? I'm curious what it looks like.
In another thread someone claimed they could scratch their screen using their fingernail. I tried this myself on my own screen many times and it's still scratch free, looks perfect.
I'm wondering if a few phones just have bad screens on them.

They're tiny scratches, you can't physically feel them, but their easy to notice, especially against light backgrounds. It's not affecting the phone in any performance way, but I notice tiny details like these and they drive me insane. It particularly sucks since the phone is less then 4 days old.

I've got some of these same kind of scratches on my screen and it is a little upsetting after only having it a week. I wish there was a way to repair the oleophobic coating. My wife has had hers in a case and doesn't have any scratches on hers. I've only been putting mine into my very soft jacket pockets so I'm not sure how I got the scratches on there.

Don't they have something by monster or zagg that you can actually apply a type of olephobic coating to a phone that doesn't have one? If so would that repair that type of scratch? I'm asking because I just noticed a small one on my screen after 2 days of owning my new red 920.
