Is iPhone 7 scratch resistant?
Display - yes, very scratch-resistant. Difficult to scratch.
The back of the phone is also scratch-resistant on all but the Jet Black iPhones.
The key word is "resistant".
Honestly, the display is damn near scratch-proof unless you're using sand or a diamond. It's been that way since 2007 and has only gotten better. Back of the non-Jet Black iPhones is pretty dang resistant though.
Do not think I have ever scratched an iPhone screen and have been using them for a while now.
I have no complaints and have found them to be quite durable.
I still wouldn't test it. Screen can scratch depending what it makes contact with.
The casing will also scratch and scrape easier than the glass.
Op asked if it was scratch resistant. No one in this thread stated they would actually test or attempt to scratch it.
Resistant yes, proof no. That means it's harder to scratch but not impossible.
I'm assuming you're talking about the screen.
If it's the back anodization, depends on the color.
It's pretty scratch resistant until you get those "rogue" scratches that appear out of nowhere and then you get those threads " iPhone 7 scratches real easily"
No iPhone is not scratch resistant,I never take a risk.always use a case + glass screen protector on my every iPhone
Well, that doesn't make it not scratch resistant.
And there are plenty of posts in these threads contradicting where others have stated their cases and protectors have scratched or damaged their iPhone inadvertently. In a sense, you still take a risk with other products.
Thank you for the information.
what about dings dents and shattered screens, don't you think screen protectors and cases give protection from those accidental damages, i can live with a scratch caused by a case but a dinged or shattered iPhone hell no!!
They all scratch easily. Even my iP6s+ within weeks it has a scratch on the screen. It only goes in one pocket in my jeans and nothing is included there. Just the iPhone. It still gets fine scratches that you can see easily when there is nothing on display.
All of the aluminum phones will scratch the same
But the Jet Black shows them more than others
As for the screen, it's just as resistant as any other phone (S7, V20, 3T)
The iPhone screen IS tough, but in my experience it does actually scratch quite easily. My 6 Plus didn't have a screen protector on it for about a year and it was COVERED in micro scratches. I came to this thread cause I'm trying to find out whether the 7 uses a different glass (Gorilla Glass 5?) to see if I have the confidence to go screen protector-less earlier on.
iPhone 6s plus has Ion-X glass , I would assume the 7 has the same.
6s plus screen was very durable.
