LG G6 has a shiny glass back, but does it scratch easily?

39

The LG G6 is in many ways a reset for LG: it's not modular, it does not feature a leather back, it's... well, more mainstream. It is trendy: it has a sturdy metal frame and a glass back, and while it might not be of the same design pedigree as the curved-screen Samsung phones or some others, it still looks good.

But with a glass back you inevitable start to wonder: won't this also scratch easily? After all, many people prefer using their phones without a case and nobody wants a scratched up phone in a month or two.

So let's take a knife and try to scratch up our brand new phone to test... said no one ever. Well, one person did: an adventurous tester that will settle the case once and for all, so that you don't need to damage your device just to feed your curiosity.

The answer is: no, it does not scratch easily. It won't scratch even when you try harder with a sharp knife. Keep in mind that we're talking about the back glass here: it's said to be Gorilla Glass 5 protected, while the camera is said to be covered in Gorilla Glass 4, while the front - allegedly to make it as thin as possible - is Gorilla Glass 3 protected. So there you have it, the LG G6 will not scratch easily. Now, if only we could know when will LG start selling it and what will be the price...
