I am so disappointed with my iPhone 12 touch screen. It scratches with just a finger nail. I had my iPhone 8 for 3 years and turned it in literally without even one scratch. I have been so very careful with my new iPhone 12 and I have scratches down at the bottom where only my finger nail has touched. I have seen and heard many, many others say the exact same thing. How could Apple have overlooked such an important part of their production, to give us a lesser product yet charge us such an enormous amount of money. I really regret buying this phone and have spoken to others who say the same thing. Apple you really dropped the ball on this one.

Think about what you're doing before complaining that you were dumb. This isn't a problem for normal users either, because they don't typically stack phones on top of each other (due to only have one daily use phone, like 99.9% of the phone using population) UHHH DUHH
Sanjay, 28 Oct 2020The burn test results are awesome....better than any other OLED phonesThe burn test is pointless.
But I was impressed with the bend test. That phone will rip your pocket before it even flexes.

Is the scratch resistance that bad?

I've Googled to try and find you a picture to do it justice to the kinds of marks, and to my surprise the most accurate picture was from an article on Tom's Guide about customers seeing the exact same scratches on their iPhone 11/Pro/Pro Max. Here's the article;
I don't know what these type of marks are, but as far as I've seen, they're exclusive to iPhones.
LG Superfan, 29 Oct 2020Apple never claimed better scratch resistance they only said about drops Camera on iPhones ac... moreNot Apple but their brand boys on this site were claiming it had improved scratch resistance on top of improved shaterproof design.
Did you guys know, for gorilla glass the higher the version, the more shatter proof it gets? But it also loses its scratch resistance.
Version 4 for instance, on the Samsung's Note 4 is highly resistant to scratch, but if you drop it.. high chance to shatter. But as 5 is released, the scratch gets worse.
So something to keep in mind as the versions increases it loses hardness but gain toughness. Buy that screen protector.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2020Logic. Can you give me a name of a material which is hard to break but can be easily scratched... moreYou misunderstand toughness and hardness. And they often go in the opposite way.
That's why diamond is the harder material commonly found, but also really easy to break.
Also you should base your logic on physics. Here is the same as saying earth is flat because you see it flat.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2020The way Apple advertises this, you may think it is much stronger than Gorilla 6 or Virtus (GG7... moreIt may actually be Victus with a different name and Apple never claimed anything about scratch resistance they did say it is 4x shatter resistance
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2020Iboyz were saying how it has better scratch resistance along with better shatrerproof design.
... moreApple never claimed better scratch resistance they only said about drops
Camera on iPhones actually has Sapphire a very thin layer of it and is impure so they actually didn't lie
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2020Logic. Can you give me a name of a material which is hard to break but can be easily scratched... moreThat is plain wrong.
You want an example? Plastic. Very resistant to shattering, extremely prone to scratches.
Want the opposite? Sapphire glass. Very resistant to scratches, extremely prone to shattering.
SizN80, 28 Oct 2020Lol,all they know is to come to Apple related topics because nobody cares about their crapdroi... moreLmfao crap droids I use IOS and I’m not stupid to know Android s have sum pretty badass phones the tech in sum of them far exceeds iPhones rn aka Mate 40 pro !
Some people who are whining "UhH Apple is trying to cheat customers it's not a real ceramickk" do not seem to understand that this technology infuses ceramic crystals into the molecular structures of the glass and improves the shatter, or in other words, shock resistance, but will not increase the hardness of the glass itself.
I was wrong for thinking that it's only a glass panel coated by a thin layer of ceramic, but Apple never explained in that way and I guess everything makes sense now.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2020It's because Apple have increased the shatter resistance of the phone, which makes it eas... moreLogic. Can you give me a name of a material which is hard to break but can be easily scratched?! From what I know, hard to break, hard to scratch.
Until something like transparent ceramic exists and good for mass production in smartphones, glass is glass and any form of silicon will scratch at 6, with deeper grooves at 7 and it will break.
Apple using hyperbole fake marketing labels to brainwash people into thinking it's quality. Classic Apple.
They should have called the cheap paint job on the frame something futuristic, indestructible.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2020You should look at iOS lovers all over YouTube now.
Their A14 GeekBench scam is exposed.
The... more"exposed"? LoL.
Tell me 1 person who "exposed" iPhone 12's supposed "slow" performance.
All the trending speed tests comparisons show that iPhones beat androids most of the time during app openings.
Can you name a single source that verifies your claim that iPhones are throttling badly?
