    So I'm planning on getting this phone today, and was wondering a few questions.

    Do you like it?
    Does the screen get a lot of scratches? Is a screen protector necessary?
    Do you think samsung actually made a good phone?
    Can I get android market?

    LOVE it so far, had it for like 2 weeks. Best phone I have ever had (so far) and have found very little problems with it (so far)

    I only have a hard case on it, and no screen protector. Screen is still in perfect shape.

    My feeling on samsung phones b4 i got the fascinate we're that they weren't the best and had a lot of flaws, but they perfected this phone.

    Yes, android market is on this phone :p

    Do you like it? Yes very much

    Does the screen get a lot of scratches? Is a screen protector necessary? Uses gorilla glass for no scratches. I don't use a screen protector. Imo only thing it helps is fingerprints but I don't like look of screen protector so I just wipe fingerprints off.

    Do you think samsung actually made a good phone? Great phone needs update but should come soon hopefully.

    Can I get android market? Yes

    Okay, so if I get a silicone case without the screen protector, should I be fine? I was wondering if the phone was like the iPod touch, where the screen is glass and doesn't get scratches.

    Living.. better than the alternative.
    If you have a Best Buy nearby you should wait till Friday and get it for $1.
    Don't spend a fortune on phones.. even LetsTalk.com has them on sale.

    Also, as to the screen watch a durability test on youtube..

    Got a phantom scratch in the lower right hand corner! My phone has never been dropped, touched by change, keys, etc! Its pretty much baby'd...So much for Gorilla Glass!

    Side not- I have a slew of phones, zero scratches on any of their screens, and they all do not have this so called Gorilla Glass. I also never use a screen protector on any of em..hmm?

    I don't really buy into the gorilla glass stuff, plus i don't want to risk messing up the glass cuz the screen looks too good :D

    The screen protector from verizon sucks though... it doesn't cover the whole glass and it blurs the image a bit so i went to amazon and bought the realook screen protector. I hardly notice it's there but fingerprints are horrible, nothing a few wipes of the shirt won't fix though

    Verizon sells a case for $19.99 that clips on to the back of the phone. When installed it sits up above the glass on the edges by a few millimeters, which should protect it against a face-down drop. The bonus? The case has a built in kickstand which works either vertically or horizontally. I'm not a fan of cases... never had one on my iPhone, never had one on my Droid X. This one is awesome.
