    So before the iPhone announcement the rumor was a sapphire crystal display. MKBHD even had an "iPhone 6 display" video showing how scratch resistant the iPhone 6 display was and it had me sold. Now it is said to come with Gorilla glass just how scratch resistant will this stuff be?

    Logic would say that the screen will be just as, if not more, scratch resistant than previous models...which were VERY scratch resistant. That said, nothing proves this better than real world experience...which is impossible to report on yet.

    As we all no, Apple stated nothing about the iP6/6P having a sapphire screen, Im sure that was only for the Apple Watch this time around, but I'm sure the 6S will offer a Sapphire screen LOL. I was honestly hoping for LightField Technology in the Camera ever since Apple patented Light Field Tech and had a Meeting with Lytro...

    The real question is how quick will that oleophobic coating wear off?

    The display on my iPhone 5, the 4S before that, and the 3G before that did not contain any scratches and that's after having dropped them a few times. Furthermore, I don't protect my iPhones in a case so having said that, I'd say the HD display on the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus will be scratch resistant within reason....

    Lucky you. I've never had an iPhone that didn't have deep scratches on the screen from even just a couple weeks of using it without a screen protector. I hope that changes in the jump from 4s to 6.

    I got a glass screen protector to avoid these issues.

    I have Zagg Glass on my 5S & my GS5 & love it. So I decided to get it for my 6+ & I hate it. It doesn't fit the screen like it does on the other devices but because of the size of the phone I'm scared I'll drop it. I guess I'll keep it on until I get use to the size, then it's definitely coming off.

    It doesn't bother me because I didn't want my case to touch it out of fear that the glass could crack from my case.

    I already had to have my Zagg replaced because the guy who put it on cracked it.

    I thought about the Zagg glass but wasn't sure how it fit the curved edges of the screen or if it interfered with the swipe to go back gesture.

    I'm sure the iPhone 6/6plus screens will be just as scratch resistant as previous iPhones. I've never used screen protectors and never had a scratch.

    I'm a bit OCD & lint has been getting in the space between the case & the screen protector. It drives me nuts that I have to clean it out every few moments...I know, crazy people problems LOL

    It definitely doesn't interfere with any of the gestures. I just don't like the gap between the case & the screen.

    How does the Zagg feel if you're using it caseless? Are the edges of it noticeable to your hand or fingers?

    It feels great!! The edges are rounded so there's no sharp feeling. It's almost seamless.

    Probably because the screen starts to curve downward to meet the bezel so they had to make it smaller to allow for that. I think it looks fine and nothing like a glass protector to feel like the screen!

    I figured as much. I'm just tired of the lint in the cracks. Maybe it'll grow on me & I won't notice it as much.

    Be aware of the Spigen screen protectors, got one for my wife's iPhone 6 and it's way too small for the screen, I know the screen is different but this one just leaves lots of room exposed,
    I'm going with no screen protector on my 6 plus for now though.
