Wow, makes screen protectors seem a little silly


that video was pointless and stupid. of course a knife wont scratch it, it wouldnt scratch any decent glass either. Steel is softer than glass. I dont know why people equate a sharp edge with scratchability....

what we need to see is someone putting some sand on it and giving it a rub.

Quick question for the folks with an XT SIII, is it branded anywhere on the case?

No. Don't think any S3's are branded (physically)

No branding except when you boot up the phone. It will say GT-i9300T and then a Telecom BootScreen.
