    The picture you see before your eyes is one of those fancy iPhone 4's I've heard alot about recently. And it looks like they can indeed be scratched. You can see them in bright light and they're not too bad, but for a phone thats only just been bought recently, and with all the claims you can't scratch it, its not encouraging.

    No. They said it was 30 times harder than plastic. No company would be daft enough to claim that a device couldn't be scratched.

    ^And that's a perfect example of the importance of the wording used. "Scratch resistant" does not mean "scratch proof". Marketing at its best.

    They said it's scratch resistant, which it most certainly is.

    Nothing is scratch proof. Go figure.
