    I only had the 6 plus for 2 weeks and it has a scratch on the coating. I never had this issue with my older phones. iPhone 4, various Samsung devices or nexus 5

    If you think it's defective - take it to an AppleStore - they'll take a look, and deal accordingly.

    Anything can scratch. It just depends on random conditions. After using my old 4S for a few months without a screen protector I had a few scratches. My original iPhone which I still have never had a screen protect and its scratch free.
    It just depends. I always use a screen protector because I'd rather scratch the protector than the screen. I don't mind having a scratched up screen protector.

    Did you scratch your older phones in the exact same manner in which you scratched your iPhone 6 Plus? If not, how do you know the older phone wouldn't have also been scratched under the exact same conditions? Maybe it's me, but I'm under the impression that glass can be scratched and broken, and if it does, I'll simply get it replaced and try not to damage it again.

    One reason I want a glass screen protector.
    I've tried those and hate them. If I see dust I tend to get annoyed with them and then throw them out. Tried every type as well

    No I haven't and I usually keep a phone typically for only for a year if that. The last few I had were scratch free for the most part. My iPhone 4 was the last one I had for more then a year (20 months ) and I gave that phone a beating and came out of it with only a gouge left of home button and a few of these scratches of the coating toward the 14 month mark.


    The note 3 I had for 9 months and it had one but that's it and very minor.

    Oh okay. Well, hopefully, you won't acquire any more scratches on your iPhone 6 Plus. By the way, have you considered attaching a screen protector? Also, do you ever lay your iPhone 6 Plus down with its screen touching the surface?

    As I said to the other person I tend to hate them and throw them out. Have tried glass on the note 3 and hated it. But might try it on the iPhone if this becomes a bigger issue .


    Na I don't ever do that. Even if I did I do have the Apple leather case so I don't think it's an issue ?

    Will the Apple Store replace the phone ?

    Replaced due to a scratched screen? Maybe, but that depends on the person who's helping you. Apple is more than willing to accommodate its customers, but they do have limits. Do you tend to be OCD in regard to your iPhone?

    5 years ago yeah but now I find it annoying but something I'll live with. Guess I'll see if I can get it replaced since I have a wifi issue anyways

    I used an iP 4 with no screen protector for 18 months. When I upgraded early and traded it in with Verizon, it had one tiny little scratch that could only be seen from one angle with the light just right. I had carried it in my pocket the 18 months with keys, coins and everything else. I thought the glass held up rather well.

    Yeah my iPhone 4 was a great phone Idc what anybody says about it. Didn't baby it at all actually and had it dropped multiple times in concrete floors and never broke the glass. Had a few scratches but it survived everything I put at it. The iPhone 6 plus I don't feel would survive all that but I don't abuse my phones like I did with my iPhone 4

    So you scratched it some how, and you question the durability/quality of the product itself?

    If you run your car into a telephone pole will you also question the build quality of the car afterwards?

    Or perhaps if you threw a brick at your television, you'd question the quality of the screen?

    I question the quality of your posts honestly.

    Lol then don't comment ? For the past year I had the the note 3, nexus 5 , note 4 and this phone and none of the others I mentioned got scratched 2 weeks of ownership. Even with the note 3 it was around 7 months of owning it and had about a tiny 2-3 inch scratch on that coating ( not an actual scratch of the glass) and couldn't really see it unless you go looking for it in direct sunlight. If I could actually take pictures of all those old phones I would and actually could see it.


    I have a Note 4 still laying around before I give it to sprint so I'll see if I could show you that screen


    I ignored the guy you posted a while ago but to simply put I have kept it not near any beaches ( this isn't a scratch on the glass anyways so a moot point ) near keys or anything else. And secondly it's Apple and oranges with one is accusing me of scratching it when I didn't have anything to really scratch it. This isn't me crashing my car into a post or whatever stupid examples he said.


    I've also Googled this and seen other people having this issue and it was off Apple own website community

    OP, why don't you just return the thing already and call it a day? It's been nothing but complaints from you when it comes to this phone. It's not up to your standards.

    It's always Apple's fault. Never damn I scratched my display.

    Getting a scratch has nothing to do with any other phone. If I don't use a case and the Apple logo gets scratched I guess the material of the logo is poor quality.
    My screen protector may look a little funky but my screen ain't scratched.

    Because I like it otherwise ? Also it's past 2 weeks so unless your willing to pay the $1029 for the lease I can't return it


    Also your saying the phone is perfect ? No phone is perfect. Also I would think Apple or anybody else would use glass strong enough to be used naked imo

    I treated all my phones from the past two years the same .... In a pocket dedicated for the phone and nothing else. Never dropped it or anything. Yet this is the only phone that got a good 3-4 inch scratch going down the screen. I'm also not the only one just google iphone 6 glass easily scratched or something like that .

    I didn't scratch it though ..... I have nothing in my pockets to scratch the coating and it's in the same pocket as every other phone was in. Also Google how easily it is to scratch the iPhone 6 glass and you'll get some results
