    I've heard that the screen is like the HD2 and that thing does not scratch whatever you do to it, but what about the back? I've heard that the texture is the same as the Hero.

    What is your input?

    I don't own one, so I don't know, but, it's nice to know that if the back gets too nasty, you can always just buy a new back to it.

    I hope the glass screen is like my Zune 80...very scratch resistant!

    I haven't TRIED to scratch my Evo, but after over a week of handling it naked (the phone not me), it doesn't have a single imperfection on the front or back.

    The screen glass and camera lens tend to attract loads of fingerprints though.

    That's very true and smart! and once these phones are released there will be plenty of back covers in ebay I bet.

    LOL. I have not seen one in person but judging by the pictures and videos it looks that it can hold some use before showing signs of wear, I was asking because the cases available as of today are very limited.

    "I haven't TRIED to scratch my Evo" Just wait a few days after the official release I bet there will be a few ***** who will post videos on youtube "testing" the scratch resistance on the phone.

    Hmm, I never really considered that replacing the battery door should be no real problem.

    Though I suppose the other issue is that cases can provide a degree of protection for falls. I wish there were more cases already, but there should be some more later.

    The Seidio looks like the best bet right now, but a bit pricey, and I would like different styles or color variety.

    These devices are pretty sturdy. I've been carrying naked devices since the original iphone and have never had an issue. My hero has taken a drop to concrete from waist high and several on tile with only a minor scratch or two.

    I've had mine for a week without a sp because they weren't available, and I have no scratches front or back. I do however have a very small dent on the glossy plastic bezel surrounding the edges/side of th phone because someone threw their keys at my phone accidentally. Whatever coating they put on the screen has been pretty good so far

    My only worry would be the glossy plastic surround. Seems this coating would be susceptible to scratches.

    yeah, so far its been pretty good; its susceptible to smudges like the display of the phone. I haven't managed to scratch it yet, but there is that dent that i was talking about; but that was due to an "impact"

    Accidentally put a pen in my pocket with the phone and now have several bad scratches on the glass from the metal on the pen. Oh well, I'll have to be more careful.

    I have a screen protector and seidio case. No need for worrying about scratches :D maybe when I take off the case for cleaning or something ...

    Just a heads up, all you ladies should get a screen protector for sure.

    My wife's earings (diamond for the record, so that probably is a factor) have made a few very light scratches on the screen. We put a Zagg on there and you can't see em at all so no biggy.

    She had em all over her iPhone too and just never told me so I wasn't initially worried or thinking about it.

    I put a Zagg on mine too for good measure, just until the "i dont care" sets in a bit :)
