Welcome to Vodafone Community
I got my upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S8 in early December 2017. By the new year i noticed a few tiny scratches on the screen. I got a screen cover but that has now fallen off. Since then a few more have appeared. I always check my pockets etc to make sure there is nothing else in there. Does anyone else have this issue. The scratches are all about 2 3rds up the screen. I thought Samsung had toughened glass on their phones.
Hope you are well!
I hope you dont mind me getting too scientific on this, but the Samsung Galaxy S8 has Corning Gorilla Glass 5, this will typically withstand a level 5 pick on the Mohs scale of hardness, then starts to scratch at a level 6.
So, if you check this link:
Check the table for anything from a level 6 onwards, this could be a contributing factor to your scratched screen.
What you might notice is that their is a lot of materials used in jewellry from a level 6 onwards - could it possibly be this?
There are many different methods of removing surface scratches on phone glass when you search it on google - however I wouldn't specifically recommend any as I've not tried them myself.
Hope this helps!
What your possibly seeing is the marks in the olephobic coating applied to prevent fingerprints.
This is wear and tear.
I personally apply a Samsung official film type screen protector on my s8 and a dbrand Black Dragon Back Skin to stop.scratches there too.
