    Does the AWS7 glass scratch the air? This display is only two days old, but it's already disfigured like an old watch

    I've only been using this watch for two days without the protective film, and the glass is already in terrible condition. I don't work in a factory, I don't build a house: I just walk around with my watch hidden under the sleeve of my jacket, and I take a shower with it. Are they scratched by...

    Other Ceramic shield glass scratching [MERGED]

    After one year my iPhone 13 Pro is more scratched than my iPhone X of four years. And I use my phone *less* than I used to. I hate that Apple has sacrificed the scratch resistance of the phone for shatter resistance. I haven't dropped my phone on a hard surface in 10 years. Scratches, however...

    Hello. I desire for some advice on wether or not having an exchange for my newly purchased iPhone 14 Pro Max is worth it. I noticed a small minuscule scratch on the bottom left curve of the body. I’m not sure if it was there before I received it in-person at an Apple store or I had done it...

    iPhone 14 Pro Max 14 PM Screen is scratched on day 7 - don't hesitate to buy screen protector

    Wife and I don't like screen protectors - it worked all the time for us with 13 and 13 PM, 12PM, SE, 8 plus. The only time it didn't work when my kids scratched my se2 with keys while playing. Long story short - wife's 14PM literally caught a deep scratch out of nowhere on day 7 - we were...

    iPad Air Can’t have crap in the desert, I guess.

    Brand new iPad Air 2022, not even a month old and already have microscopic hairline scratches about as wide/deep as the thin hairs on my arm.

    iPhone 12 Pro iPhone 12 pro scratch on the back (from factory?)

    I don’t know how I got this scratch. It’s very tiny and faint but I always used a clean silicone case. What do you guys think. I’m thinking that it already was there out of the box and it came from the factory itself. The scratch is above the flashlight (not on the camera area).

Same with Slickwraps, except I’m not sure if their “full body” kit includes the palm area. I’m guessing...
