Warning, the one seems to have a very soft (easily scratched) screen

    After two weeks of careful/gentle (no drops, in a pocket on its own) use my OPO is spotless all over, apart from a nice scratch it's picked up from somewhere, right in the middle of the screen. I've never scratched the screen of a phone before, so learning that for this device at least, a screen protector is a must.

    Hope this helps save someone else's device.

    Yeah, that is pretty strange. Perhaps there's a defect in the screen build. I haven't had a scratch on a screen since my Droid (original model), and that was barely there. On that I'll note, I've never bothered to use screen protectors on any Android device.

    Probably should not put anything other than your phone. Once I put my phone in one of my pocket with my keys by accident and my phone was scratched badly. :mad:

    Whatever it is, I'd say it's worse than an iPhone 5 in terms of toughness. This is just based on my own experience of 2 weeks of OPO vs ~18 months of iPhone 5 as a secondary phone, yes it could have been a freak accident, but I can't think of any times where it's been dropped or mistreated.

    That's true ! It would be interesting to know if there has been other issues like that... Or if someone can do a crash test of the One :p

    But better put a screen protector than scratch it...

    You probably had sand scratch your display. Gorilla glass 3 isn't going to protect you against that.

    Do you wear a diamond ring? Reaching into a pocket and accidentaly coming into contact with the screen might cause this. You probably wouldn't even realize you had done it.

    Same happened to mine.
    Had ordered a glass screen protector but when it arrive was broken so had to reorder.
    During that week had phone in pocket alone but it picked up a very small scratch on the screen.
    Maybe mine shipped with chimpanzee glass :rolleyes:
