    Wow? . That place of glasses is not glass, it is sapphire crystal, like a fine watch crystal.. What have you been doing to the sapphires of your phone? . Carrying phone in pocket with keys even then, keys are softer on Mohes scale scale than the crystal.

    Manufacturers like Apple and Oneplus wants you to believe that the "sapphire crystal" they are using are only next to diamonds in hardness, but this is not true. A chemically pure sapphire crystal has a hardness of 9 in Moh's scale, while Diamonds have 10. But keep in mind that chemically pure sapphire is not transparent. so they will block light if used in camera covers and display screen.
    So manufacturers never use chemically pure sapphire in camera glass and display. what they do is they make a toughened glass with some sapphire content in them so that they are tougher than regular glass, but not as tough as sapphire.
    The sapphire glass used in iPhone and Oneplus 3T and Tissot watches have a hardness of level 6 or 7 points (Compared to 9 points of pure sapphire).
    So they can be scratched by a material having hardness level of 7 and more. And Quartz is one such material.
    do you know where we can find plenty of quartz ? Sand. Sand is basically a mixture of silicon and quartz.
    If you have sand in your pocket (in a beach vacation), a prolonged exposure with the phone can eventually scratch the so called fake "Sapphire crystal".

    It is not made of pure sapphire. Also don't forget a normal beach sand would easily cause scratches because of its composition. So rather critizing if anyone has got it replaced just tell him or else.....
