As we know, since the iPhone 6, all other iPhones suffer from scratches by simply using it, it has been covered a lot of times and it's due to the display that is not super strong in order to not break when it fall down. Now, the new display is not curved on the edges and it's harder, anyone has noticed the same hairline scratches has the iPhone 6 and newer? (I mean by simply using it in your pocket, without key/money and, without a glass screen protector, obviously)

Thanks!

It’s a bit early to say. But it has been proven that the new display is more scratch resistant.

The same oleophobic layer meant to reduce fingerprints is still present on the new models. While the screen may have 4x stronger glass, it’s that layer I mentioned that will still give you surface scratches.
