No scratches here either. Seems to be pretty well protected. The back gets scratched when in my pocket, but I bought the rear blue case Cricket sells, and it works great...doesn't add bulk at all.
People have mentioned the dots on the screen, and I'm not sure exactly what it is. I always thought it had to do with the touchscreen capability. My Acer Iconia a500 tablet has the exact same screen...in that it has those tiny dots all over the screen.
