No one ever said you can't scratch it only that it is difficult to do so. I haven't seen a screen protector yet that doesn't degrade the image to some extent. But by all means, you know best how you transport and use your own device. If you don't mind the degraded image, protect it.
by all means, this is a matter of personal preference. But by no means can you say that the glass is easily scratched given what was shown in the video - The test with the plastic bags and the sharp screw proves that.
IMO I would rather use the phone as it was built with the AWESOME AMOLED display and take my chances given the powerful and proven scratch resistance of this device.
I never said the glass is easily scratched, i said the glass isn't 100 scratch proof like some people are making it sound to be. You also don't need a razor to encouter sharp objects, or objects that can scratch your phone. Also the video shows horizontal scratches that were not caused from the razor but something else. Everyone is free to do as they want, don't protect your screen, thats your choice. Also if you get a good screen protector, and you apply it correctly, it doesn't distort your image. The only thing that distorts my image is when finger marks get all over the screen, but then I can just wipe it off.
