Xiaomi Mi Band 2 get scratched easily? Practical tricks to solve it

Why does the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 get scratched so easily? From the specifications list on the official Xiaomi site, the Mi Band 2 utilizes an OLED display (manufactured mainly from glass). So, does that mean the panel is glass too? The answer is, most likely, no. As we all know, glass delivers relatively good scratch-resistant performance compared to other surfaces. So if it's not glass, what's the real material used for the OLED panel?
Regarding the mystery material, the description from Xiaomi's official site is: "The glossy black display is UV coated and resistant to scratches and fingerprints". Going further, the official Chinese site describes it as being treated with double injection and UV coating processing on the panel.
Digging a little deeper, we learn that Double Injection is sometimes also referred to as "2 material", "2 shot molding" or "2K molding" – this is an innovative manufacturing process used to produce complicated molded parts from two different materials. It allows for precision molding using clear plastics, colored graphics, and stylish finishes which improve overall product functionality and market value. So, we finally discover the truth: the surface material is made from plastic!
The hardness of the Mi Band 2 screen panel is similar to a phone's rear cover, which is obviously less scratch-resistant than glass; this is the reason why it sometimes gets scratched easily.
A screen protector is strongly recommended
What's the most effective way to prevent a Xiaomi Mi Band 2 from getting scratched? This question is much easier to answer and Google isn't required this time: buy a good quality screen protector.
