Dell Streak’s Gorilla Glass screen isn’t scratch proof

Streak-gorilla-scratch (2)

You've already seen how the glossy sides of the Dell Streak can get scratched from nothing more than simply existing, and now here's evidence that the super strong Gorilla Glass isn't scratch proof either.

The US version of the Streak I unboxed the other day actually arrived with a bunch of scratches on the screen, so I don't know what caused them. What I do know is that one of them is deep enough to almost always be seen, while the others are only visible in direct sunlight at certain angles (you can't see them at all indoors, no matter how hard you try).

My other Streak, the one I've had for a little over a week now, doesn't have any scratches on its screen. I don't abuse it at all, of course, but since the glossy sides got scratched on their own, the screen could've gotten scratched as well. But it didn't.

You've probably seen all those videos of people trying (and failing) to destroy Gorilla Glass, too, so whoever had my US Streak last really didn't treat it well. Check out the damage below.
