It has been confirmed that the Nexus has reinforced glass that is supposedly equivalent to Gorilla Glass.

If they can survive a drop it doesn't matter. I have the Skyrocket and it fell screen down from about a foot on to a hard linoleum floor and cracked the screed. I was stunned as usually it takes the corner drop to bust it.

Ouch!! That sucks bigdawg23!

I guess your Skyrocket dropping experience coincides with Phone Arena's review; their test Skyrocket accumulated scratches just from putting the phone in their pocket and taking it out.

Gotta believe the original S GSII used different and stronger glass.

Richer colours, deeper blacks, lower power consumption. Its a win-win all round for SAMOLED screens vs SLCD

Small correction: SAMOLED is only better power consumption if it mostly shows the color "black," which implies that particular set of OLEDs is off.

If comparing all white screens on SAMOLED and LCD displays, LCD wins the low-power consumption award.
