    I've seen a lot of videos about screen tests for the iPhone 4 and the original iPod touch when it first came out (when I got my iPod touch).

    Anyway, I've tried to scratch mine with keys and a knife but it doesn't scratch (iPod and iPhone 4).

    But what I've noticed after a couple of years, is that my iPod (touch) is pretty scratched up. How did this happen? Is there a layer of coating that 'dissolved' over time?

    I'm contemplating whether to use a protector on my iPhone 4 or not =s

    and is the back resistant too? I know the camera isn't, I already have scratches on it =s

    THanks!!

    Lmao... Whats wrong with you? Are you the type of person someone tells not to put your hands in the box or you'll regret it, and you go ahead and put them in there anyways. Somebody could tell me my new Challanger is scratch resistant and Im sure in the hell not going to take my keys too it to find out. I cant stop laughing... Tool !

    There are a lot of people out there where money is not a concern. So if the screen did scratch, just go get another one.

    The screen is supposed to be, but from what i read on these boards the screen is not. I've actually heard (not seen) of people putting their phone in their pocket with nothing else and it comes out scratched. I don't know what to beleive so i protect my phone.

    I use an invisible shield and a case (bumper) with mine. You can never be too careful with it!

    screen protectors AT LEAST are always a must. I also ordered some thin resin cases just to keep dust and scratches (I never NEVER drop my phone, thank God)

    I hate screen protectors and cases and I've tried both. I've gone naked with my 3GS and now my iPhone 4 and never had a scratch.

    Same here. I think all screen protectors are terrible. And all I use is the bumper.
    And that's maybe like 25% of the time.

    The ONLY time I've seen anyone intentionally try to scratch their screen is when they had a zagg shield on.

    When I had BlackberryOS.com (before I sold it), I did a review for Otterbox and used a Curve 8320 and one of the tests was dropping it from my office window which was 3 stories high. That otterbox sure did protect that device. I would def hit up Otterbox if you want protection for you I.

    I'm thinking with the retina display, what is the point of putting a screen protector on it and blurring it out??

    But yes, from a previous post it seems like it's always accidentally gets scratched. That's what happened to my iPod touch. I can try to scratch it and nothing will happen but when I just take it put of my pocket it's scratched.

    Agreed. I had never dropped my iP4 and it ended up with hairline scratches in random places. Luckily, I got a replacement because I was having SIM contact issues

    I'd recommend a screen protector no matter how tough the screen looks. Better safe than sorry.
