You might have spent a little more than you needed to. Cell phones prey on those who don't know how much is too much.. most of those customer service people are paid commission for how much stuff they can sell.Recently bought my first iPhone (a 5S), and Apple Guy used keys to try and scratch a screen (not mine)......the screen was not scratched! Think it speaks for itself! However, being the paranoid I am, I not only had a screen protector put on, I bought a case for the phone at Andersons for around $40, that included a front panel that also covers the screen. Double the (probably not needed protection)! Even with the applied screen protector, and that which was part of the case, there is no visible loss of color or brightness, and both the fingerprint scanner and touch screen are totally useable! I know..it's crazy...but I tend to keep Apple products for a long while, till something comes along I just can not live without! So the extra protection without performance issues was a no brainer for me. Now my wife has a beautiful blue leather case with Swaroski crystals in a flip cover form, which also holds an ID, credit card and a bill! I wouldn't have one! The darn thing cost almost two hundred bucks! But to each their own! I have 2 iPodTouch, an iPad 3rd Gen, an iPod Nano, an iPad Mini, and a Mac Book Pro 15 inch Retina with SSD and top specs! I am an Apple idiot!
Proves nothing. Keys are not harder than glass therefore they will not scratch glass. A softer material cannot scratch a harder material.Recently bought my first iPhone (a 5S), and Apple Guy used keys to try and scratch a screen (not mine)......the screen was not scratched!

Sorryyyyyy! Just recounting an episode.Proves nothing. Keys are not harder than glass therefore they will not scratch glass. A softer material cannot scratch a harder material.
That said, keys aren't the only thing that screens come in contact with. Sand and other hard grit can easily scratch glass. As always with these threads it's a subjective matter and up to the individual to decide.
