    Hi guys I purchased a Lumia 920 two weeks ago...
    Accidentally dropped it from the sofa and the glass has suffered a single thin scratch (very faint)...
    Issues I have are:
    1. The glass in Lumia 800 never sustained such scratches despite falls
    2. Is there a way of getting rid of this scratch.

    Gorilla Glass is advertised as scratch resistant, not scratch proof so unfortunately it can sustain scratches. The scratch on your 920 might just be a cosmetic surface scratch of the protective layer on the screen. Some people recommend gently rubbing a little bit of toothpaste with a soft cloth to get rid of surface scratches. You might also want to try putting a top quality screen protector on which might hide the scratch that's already there

    Mine got 3 fine scratches so far after 2 months. In contrast my N8 still scratch free after 3 years.
    2nd gen corning is kinda going backward if you ask me.

    Also because of the weight distribution the phone always falls face down onto the screen...
    Just a personal observation, may be wrong...
    How do we get rid of these scratches if the above method fails..

    I picked mine up from the top of my laptop the other day. It flipped over on the screen and I now have a good scratch on it. Can't feel it or see it when the screen is on, but did irritate me to no end. I've gotten used to it by now so its not a big deal. I'm one that doesn't even put my devices in my pocket, clean them numerous times a day, and always place them on something soft when sitting them down. Laptop was perfectly clean and the phone didn't fall. Just flipped over. I change phones every few months so I've had my share of GG1 and GG2 screens. GG2 is supposed to be as scratch resistant as GG1, but in real world use it just isn't. Just my take. ;)

    Hate scratches but some see them as a sign of distinction. I've got a hairline scratch on my 920 that lines up perfectly with the right edge of the Start Screen tiles. Barely noticeable but drives me nuts, especially when I photograph my phones....

    In the photos, if the scratch stands out I can always clone it out. In real life, it's just something I have to live with. Haven't heard of any fixes yet. Shame there's not something out there similar to what we use on car windshields to fill in minor cracks/scratches.

    Sand or dirt can still scratch gorilla glass because of the small bits of quartz which is unfortunately a hard enough mineral to scratch any glass, even scratch resistant. So watch out for ANY grit in your pockets or any other thing you might carry your phone in. If you went to the beach months ago and just have a bit of sand in the bottom of some bag you toss your phone into it can lead to some scratching.

    Did someone heard that wet screen protection like ZAGG could damage your screen either?

    Look out, screen protectors possibly damaging the screen on the 920
