I think maybe this just came out in the last month or two?
I want to pick it up but I’m scared because I basically don’t want to use screen protectors anymore. I’ve just gotten tired of replacing them, I love the visual clarity of bare glass, and the smoothness because we’re using our fingers constantly for all sorts of inputs. But here’s a wild anecdote for you: I’m starting to accumulate hairline scratches on my screen just from the ■■■■ regular Apple nibs. So I don’t mind how slippery these stainless steel nibs would be as I’ve gotten used to that, but I don’t trust them when they say it’s safe for the screen. I may still be picking these up soon and being a guinea pig anyways.
That really depends on the glass used. I suspect the ‘scratch-resistent’ glass touted by many manufacturers is a bit exaggerated. Sure, it is much better than before, though before many touchscreens were plastic.
And then there are any coatings that might be applied on top of the glass that probably aren’t that hard to scratch.
