No visible scratches, haven't dropped it though.
Just as a point of comparison, I have (and love) a Note 2. The bezel is fine and shiney, the front is pristine as the day I bought it, but the back is scratched up quite a bit now and even has what seems to be a permanent imprint about half an inch in length apparently as a result of the way I was pocketing the device.
I recently got a two piece, very light and thin but stiff case.. wish I'd done that right away.
I think the HTC One is already superior in several ways, but in the Samsung plastic regard, quite superior indeed.
