My screen has a tiny nick on it and I'm very bummed out about it.

    I baby this phone, but am in between screen protectors. I don't know how it happened, but there is a tiny nick in the screen toward the bottom. It looks like a large-ish piece of dust that will never come off.

    Would any of you out there pay the $100 to get a new phone under the insurance, or would you consider this just "knocking the new off of it?"

    Nobody in the world would notice but me. But it's like a dead pixel. It's all you see.

    I figured my OCD brethren on this forum might weigh in on what to do.

    Later.

    OH--IO
    Most likely you place the phone in your pocket with a set of keys by accident. I understand that you see nothing else when you look at the screen, but I would not pay $100 just for that.

    Yes, I think I did that once by accident. Beware, people!

    Although one guy on here said he took a key to the phone screen he was going to return and nothing happened. So who knows.

    We will see more and more of these threads from those members who mock screen protectors as obsolete on their indestructible phone.

    Same thing happened to me. Small scratch. I put a screen protector on it, and now you can't even see it.

    Try putting a screen protector on the screen and you may never notice it.

    My Zagg might be at my house as early as today. I'll def give it a shot. This happened after I took Invisible Shield off of it because it ruined my display.

    Just gotta be more careful mandingo. My Evo always rides solo in a pocket without keys or anything that would damage it. My phone will look brand new in 2 years:)

    Mine rides solo as well but there are maybe two tiiiiiny little dots that look like maybe scratches in a coating. Not sure, maybe it's something I can scrape off and not a real nick. Either way, I'm not too worried. It happens and I knew what I was getting into with no protector.

    I wouldn't return it over this at all. 6 months to a year from now you will have more scratches and possibly dust. Just enjoy your family. It's just a phone.... :p
