    If you're using your OnePlus3t without a tempered glass, clean the screen and you will see small scratches on the glass. No cracks but tiny little scratches. It makes me wonder if this is really gorilla Glass 4.

    Yeah, I noticed this. I have about two scratches they're really light but fairly big. Only noticeable in the brightest of conditions.
    Is a little annoying though as I thought it was spotless, device is new and I haven't dropped it etc.

    that's why I bought an official tempered glass and still managed to get scratches on the tempered glass from day 1

    yeah they are light blue an a bit shinning. Wow.... This is terrible OnePlus... Might have they used another glass and not gorilla Glass to reduce cost? I just bought mine one month a go.

    Both Oneplus 3 and 3t do have gorilla glass. Though you need to understand that Gorilla Glass still scratches at about hardness level of 7, so some sand, which is all around, can scratch it.

    So if you really want to be sure not to have any scratches, the only option is to use screen protector (and that is true for all phones)

    You can see an independent test here

    P.S. Also make sure, that you have taken off the preinstalled plastic screen protector

    guess I am lucky then...can't see any scratches on my one plus 3t. the screen protector that came with the phone peeled off within the first 30 days. Since then using it without any protector coz the one on their official site had been sold out for graphite version. Had a couple of situations where my phone fell on its face from a height, but still no scratches. the glass is living up to its name..

    I've had my OnePlus 3 for about a year now, and I don't have a single scratch on the screen (no screen protector). I've even dropped it a few times, once off my bike, and it dinked the metal body, but no harm done to the screen at all.

    sand or dust particles in pocket can easily scratch gorilla glass 4 as hardness of sand is 7-8 and gorilla glass is 6 . always use screen protector and replace every 4-6 months. best practice to do.

    I have seen JerryRigEverything videos, I understand gorilla Glass 4 scratches at a level 6. However, in real life I have used 5 devices with gorilla Glass 4 and none have scratch for being in the pocket. Maybe it is an isolated issue.

    Gorilla glass does not gives a 100% Scrach resistance. you still need a screen protector. I have been using OnePlus 3t with a Chinese $2.5 tempered glass protector and it's perfect tly protecting my phone from any scratches.

    can you guys recommend a full screen protector from eBay or Amazon?
    I bought one but due to the 2.5 curved screen, the screen didn't really look cool.

    It's scratches on oleophobic coating, not on screen and yeah, this is gorilla glass. When you will see scratches when screen is on then you can say that screen is sratched. Oleophobic coating sratches very easily.

    I can see it with screen on but only if the light from the bulb is being reflected. Is there any way to rub it off? oleophobic oil?

    I just read an article. Once the coat wears off, scratches will be gone too.
