Is the Keyboard really scratching the internal screen!?

Guys can you give me an honest reply to this question... Does the keyboard even touch the screen? How does the keyboard scratch the internal screen?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Yes, the keyboard touches the screen. I got my E90 on Monday and I can now see the marks that correspond to the keyboard. They do clean off at present but I'm hoping the purchase of a good screen protector will prevent permanent scratches.

Kind regards,

Mark

Hmmm if you put a screen protector it means you are making the screen a little thicker meaning the keyboard will touch it even more... Don't you think this will do more harm?

Just wondering...

Hi,

Well, the keys will touch the screen protector and rub against it and thus protect the screen. I expect to replace the screen protector every few weeks.

That's my opinion, for what its worth ...

Kind regards,

Mark

ive found on mine that if you close the screen to the 'right angle click' position, then close the cover fully (with the satisfying close noise), it doesnt touch as badly.

if you just close the cover, the screen can actually creep about 2mm forward and backward before locking in its propper 'clicked' position on the hinges...

mine isnt scratching, its more finger print oil that gets stuck on the screen, but yes, it is annoying...

and whilst im whinging, why didnt they put a speak on each side of the device for proper stereo effect!

So does this mean that if we just close the E90 carefully, the internal screen wont be scratched?

i see some shadows and dirt left by keyboard.
So i will say yesl

Looking at my entire communivator collection, they all have scratches on internal lcd.

lucky me, i have found some protteective foil for my psp.

If you measure well with a paper an then cut protective foil fits like it is genuine.
You need to cut 1 cm widw and 0.5 tall
Now i'm happy with the result.

Is better to prevent than to repair...

There are rumors that the newer models have wider space so as not to touch the keyboard. Is this true? If it is, what date is this product manufactured or what product code does it have?

I have seen it with my own eyes! There is a new case design for the E90!

The main difference??? They just changed the baseline and made it a bit higher by placing a curve like design... Too bad the keyboard still touches the screen but the marks are no longer permanent and easily wiped off.

Here is a picture I hope it helps!


Im just not so sure if they are making a 3rd revision... I "heard" they are making the hinges a bit higher to completely avoid screen contact... I really hope so...

This is all very strange, as I've got a late proto and no hinge/screen/keymark problems at all.... What a delicate business high-tolerance manufacturing is!

Hmmm what about creaking sounds near the camera lens or the IR port? Do you have those?

I have been using mine since end of July and no sign of any marks on the screen yet (apart from fingerprints ). Looking closely, I don't think that the keys can touch the screen on mine.
