    Haha. It's not. Why do think they made two differnt crystals. If both didn't scratch there would be no need for the sapphire

    The Ion X will definitely scratch easier since it is not Saphire.. My guess

    Because Al the SS buyers now think they bought the holy grail.
    I got a pebble steel for one year now with Gorilla Glass on it. Not one scratch on it.

    Sapphire is great for a Rolex or something, watches that last a couple of decades. For a gadget its not that special if you just handle your watch with care.

    I'm glad I didn't see a knife test, a knife won't do anything to glass. The real problem is grit.
