I sent HTC an email to see if I really need a screen protector, they gave me this in return... lol no idea what to get from this: I understand how important it is for you to receive as much information about your device as possible. Unfortunately, the information you are requesting is proprietary in nature and we are not at liberty to divulge this information. I do apologize for any inconvenience and frustration this has caused you. Whether the screen is made out of Gorilla Glass or not it is always a good idea to protect your device. You can find screen protectors online at places like eBay, Amazon, or even on your carriers website. The screen protectors are generally not very expensive and are quite useful.
