    I prefer not to use a screen protector, I do use a case however. Anyway if I put my phone under bright light I can see some very thin hairline like scratches and you can't really feel it. It is on the top bezel and you can see it only if you shine it under light. Is it part of normal wear and tear? Are small scratches like these bound to happen over time and am I just being OCD about it?

    Yes. That is normal wear and tear. Not much you can do about it. Try not to look at your device under a bright light, lol.

    Note that it's never too late to add a screen protector. That will hide those faint scratches. I heartily recommend the anti-glare Protectors that the Apple Store will apply for you.

    The Belkin anti-glare protector that Apple applies in-store has the least effect on the screen resolution of the many I've tried. By a huge margin. Barely noticeable, but a huge benefit in sunlight.

    Yes. Most times it's the olephobic coating that scratches. If I don't use a screen protector, it always happens to my phone.
