Yes.

It all depends on the abuse and design. I'd write no to Corning glass screens but folk could have dirt on their fingers.

I have phones that are 10 years old without a single scratch. I've seen one month old phones with scratches. Looks like it's up to the user.

Mohs Hardness of fingernail is less than glass

Thank you for your answer R. Proffitt. But Mohs Hardness of fingernail is 2 to 2.5 and that of glass is 5.5 generally. But still the fingernail will be able to scratch the glass display?
