How's you iPod Touch 5 holding up against screen scratches?

I've got a few small scratches, but you can't see them at all when the screen is on, even at an angle.

No screen scratches whatsoever. I'm using a screen protector. It's a great investment. I recommend Tech Armor brand, the HD Clear type. (Never get the Anti-glare ones, because that reduces the quality of the Retina screen)

Yeah, I agree, on day one... Well, around that time... I purchased a really good screen protector. Cost around 25.00 but it was worth every penny! Even has a lifetime guarantee on it!

Screen still flawless - no screen protector. Carry it around in a pocket - and make sure I don't put anything else in that pocket.

(Ipod touch 4 used for 2 years) I only see 2 hairline scratches when in the correct lighting and angle. I don't worry about them. Screen protectors never work for me (never go on)

I think that screen protector of any kind will somewhat more or less reduces the quality of retina.

Neither of mine has any scratches (or bends) - but I wouldn't really care if they did. Screen protectors are a waste of money; they detract from what is the beauty of the screen.

My Slate 32Gb is the beater which I just throw in a bag; the White & Silver 64Gb one I have a turquoise case for and take a bit more care of - it stays at home.
