iPhone 4 Scratches Easily

On June 23, 2010

Aluminosilicate glass sounds pretty serious, Apple said "All the breakthrough technology in iPhone 4 is situated between two glossy panels of aluminosilicate glass – the same type of glass used in the windshields of helicopters and high-speed trains.  Chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic, the glass is ultra-durable and more scratch resistant than ever."

Sounds pretty good to us, except for the fact that Engadget posted this picture of scratches on the back of their iPhone 4 already!















So, I guess this is a fluke?  I sure hope so, but we’re not taking any chances.  Our suggestion?  Pick up the screen protectors (front and back) with the purchase of your new phones.  Otherwise, nothing is going to make you feel worse than looking at your new shiny iPhone with scratches already!
