    The coating they put on this is amazing. I don't have one scratch.

    Has anyone else noticed that when you set it down on a certain surface, it slides/glides?

    That's just how fluid this coating is.

    Playing it safe with a screen protector. Barely noticeable.

    No scratches but I did just put a power support anti galre screen protector on just because of the finger prints.

    Put protectors. No scratches and you almost can't see it. But for sides, there will be some scratches most there than anywhere else.

    I'm only worried about the front glass. I have an elago case on it now and covers the sides and back. The top bottom and front are exposed

    Hey everyone, I'm worried about my 4s getting scratched from hearing some of your experiences. Does anyone recommend any particular protector? Thank you!

    GLAS.t by SGP for the front. Pick your poision as far as outer cases go. Most do equally well if all you are worried about is scratches.

    The antenna band can get marked up very easily.

    I've had a 4 since April last. Zero scratches. I've had a 1st gen Touch for 4 years, zero scratches on the glass. Never had any film protectors. It's not prone to scratching.

    And the Touch has been launched across the driveway more than once by my lovely children. Has all sorts of divots and scratches on the bezel and back, nothing on glass.

    I'd say that's the exception, not the rule. Lucky guy!
