Okay so is this "glassgate" a real issue?
Personally, I think it's a load of crap from "haters" that are just jealous because they can't afford an iPhone. But I figure I'd ask the tipb community. Do you have a slider case on your iPhone, and has it scratched the glass on the back?

I had the incase slider on my iPhone 4 and it did scratch the glass. So no I don't think it's made up plus I thought the "glassgate" issue had to do with the slider cases cracking the glass not just scratching it!?

I personally think the whole thing was blown up by the media. Though I never heard of Glass Gate till Georga/Rene said it in the TIPB LIVE few weeks back.
If the media gets a hold of something they always blow it up.

Just goes to show how much the tech press hates apple. They want to form apple in it's own image. They hate it when they are marginalized as apple does not give a hoot what they think or say and really do not even know they exist.
This is fine. I understand their frustration. What I do not understand is why in the name of all that is holy do most of these tech guys have and even prefer apple products? If you hate the way they do business why do you support this "evil" company with your money? Whether it's cnet or gdgt or gizmodo they for some weird reason buy apple products. They claim they are tech agnostic but the bias is oozing from their veins.
Honestly I don't buy a snickers bar and eat it and then start ranting about how much it sucked. Please just stop.

phones get scratched. it happens with all phones. everyone just wants to cut down the iphone so any little thing that happens with it becomes a huge problem.. i had a slider case on my BB storm and guess what? it scratched it

My iP4 has front and back screen covers on, plus its wrapped in a pixel HD case.
Its a shame really, because I really would like to wear it naked...but too many scare stories of dropped and cracked screens. Not that I'm clumsy...but accidents can happen and I've paid too much money for this phone too chance it.

I have applecare for my MBP, but as it mainly stays at home and normally placed on a table or some other flat surfice... I dont run the risk of accidently breaking it. So the cover is really for hardware failure.
Now regarding my iPhone, its small, mobile and gets taken everywhere with me, so hugely a greater risk. Now if apple provided some sort of accidental damage with their care, then I probably would take the cover.
