Did you just get a brand new Windows Phone 8X by HTC? Do you already scratches on the screen? Well we have !! I guess the Gorilla Glass 2 is not really that scratch resistant. However the Corning Gorilla Glass on the Nokia Lumia 920 is not showing anything like we see on the Windows Phone 8X by HTC. It is very hard to notice, but the scratches are there!
I haven’t seen this in a while on especially on any of my devices with the Gorilla Glass technology, but this is really noticeable. It might be that the quality of the Windows Phone 8X by HTC screen is not the same as we are used to and is causing these scratching as we show in the pictures below. We all put our phones down and many of us put the phone down with the screen on the table so we won’t have any distractions during meetings. We also put our phones in our pockets and there is always some lingering debris in those pockets or pocket books. Well it looks like that the screen of the 8X by HTC is taking a slight beating by this. I have used the HTC Titan and Titan II over the last year course and don’t even have anything like this at all on my screens. It just doesn’t sit and feel right to me. Especially with the phone being less then a week old. So is the Thinner Gorilla Glass 2 less scratch resistant?
Any of you have hair-line scratches on your new Windows Phone 8X by HTC?
Take a look at the pictures below and let us know if you see the same thing? If so Get a screen protector and a case with beveled edge on the front.
I have just too many questions as to why this is happening.
It also seems that I am not alone. Tom Warren from the Verge has the same experience as well. I have reached out to HTC for a comment and I hope to hear from them soon about this quality issue.
Update: HTC Global has contacted me and they are looking seriously into this problem. I really like the HTC products over the years and never had any issues like this at all. Hopefully it is a production run problem with a small batch and I just got one of the bad ones.
