    Is Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen scratch resistance !

    Hello Folks,

    As we know the Samsung Galaxy Nexus have Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display not the Gorilla one therefore I have a concern regarding its tendency against scratch resistance.

    I bought my nexus online and with the box I got the scratch guard since then I have changed three screen guard as screen guard gets
    deteriorated with time but I never get a chance to test screen whether its scratch proof or not.

    Please suggest me if using screen guard make sense for Super AMOLED display.

    Thank you,

    Personal opinion is using a screen guard may help in preventing scratches. It has nothing to do with being super amoled since that doesn't determine the strength of the glass. It will really be totally up to the user to make the decision on the protection though. I've seen people put them and some don't.

    Gorilla Glass is susceptible to scratches as well. It may be a little more resistant, but the glass used on the Nexus is of no lesser quality imo. I've used a screen protector on it since day 1 and even the part where the protector doesn't cover it hasn't been scratched at all. There are quite a few videos floating around youtube how scratch resistant the Nexus really is and that should be enough to give you some peace of mind. Watch out for sand, that'll really scratch up your phone, Gorilla Glass or not, real good.

    Gorilla is only a brand of toughened glass nothing more, and most high end devices come with toughened glass be it branded or not. I've had my nexus since release without any screen guard and still no scratches, it just depends how much respect you show your stuff.

    Also remember that the scratch resistance of a screen is only to materials with a lesser hardness rating that the screen itself. And sand had a higher hardness rating (the metal of keys is lower, so they really shouldn't scratch your screen at all), so sand will indeed scratch your screen if you have sand in your pocket...and who doesn't have even a little sand in the fabric of their jeans?

    So use a screen protector, be careful about dropping your phone, and all that but realize that no matter the type or brand of hardened glass you have, nothing is scratch proof. It's not the fault of the manufacturer of the phone or the screen, it's nature's fault for making sand so damn hard.
