I just got a white iPhone a few weeks ago and I just don't want to keep it hidden under a bulky case. Decided to go sans screen protector and I'm using a white Replicase until I get the iSkin Claro. I found a Golla bag that is just perfect for an iPhone with a slim case on and has a few card slots. That's just enough for me to protect the screen.

I have never gotten a scratch on the front of my phone though. So not sure what you're talking about really :P

iPhone 4 is using glass from Chinese manufacturer named Lens Technology. While there might be some truth to the claim that the properties of their class are similar to Gorilla Glass (I wonder if iFixit actually meant exactly that), in reality iPhone never used the actual Gorilla Glass. There are unconfirmed reports of other sources of glass used in some batches of iPhone 4, but none of them are Corning Technology glass.

So, today the debate is already closed. No Gorilla Glass in iPhone 4.
Lens Technology, which is apparently responsible for transforming fine raw glass into the majority of iPhone glass panels out there (and contrary to previous reports, there's no mention of Corning here).

I had a screen protector on my 4 for the best part of 8 months. About 4 months ago I removed it totally because of air bubbles and dust forming. I have to say, the screen has held up well... not a single scratch that I can see, touch wood! and it's frequently shoved in my pocket with keys and coins!

im seriously mulling whether i should try to get a replacement or not. it's not THAT bad and i've ordered a screen protector and a case but for this thing to scratch up this easily is infuriating.
tl;dr this thing scratches very easily so be careful.
there's a post by engadget dated 06/23/2010 about this titledYes, you can certainly scratch the iPhone 4 (updated with more photos)

I carry mine most of the time without a case. On my iPhone 4, it had just a couple of tiny scratches after being carried "naked" for over 9 months. I also have a Ram mount bracket on my motorcycle that I put it in and take it out of frequently. The only marks are on the top of the metal housing where it rubs against the bracket. I put a small piece of clear tape there to solve that problem.

As for "pocket junk", sand (and some other materials) are harder than glass and can certainly scratch it.

I dropped my 3GS and cracked the screen. Fell about four feet onto tile floor in my house. I was carrying it with a stack of laundry in my hand, the whole phone was unprotected. Now with my 4S, I'm terrified not to protect it. I have an Otterbox Commuter on my 4S right now, which I like, but am disappointed the case is too thick for me to plug it into the adapter in my car to listen to music, so I'm looking at other case options that will allow me to do this. I spend a good 30 minutes driving to work every morning and prefer to listen to music on my phone on the drive, so I was disappointed when I went to plug my phone in, only to find the Otterbox was too thick.

I have one for my life proof case.
That's what I did and I don't have to sacrifice any protection.
Search radtech dock extender on google. They won't ship for A few weeks due to high demand. But it's a option.
