(I'll post this question on the device-owner list)
It's like every of those mockup-rubber softtouch-surfaces: amazingly
insensitive to small scratches, but especially on aged plastics (probably
when the softener has evaporated partly over the times, tested for some GTA01
case) you can eventually peel off the whole maybe 0.05mm thin coating with
your fingernail by applying brute force, creating a e.g. 0.05x1.5x10mm bold
So in some respect it's more sturdy than ordinary shiny plastic which gets
dull by lots of microscopic scars very easy, in some respect the damage done
to it is more severe when it ever happens (you probably couldn't scratch any
other plastic, like the one found on the two outer 'rings' of Neo's case,
with your fingernail).
I have a 15 year old sony scoopman with same kind of surface. It has been
living in my pocket for ~10y 24/7/365, and still looks pretty good. It has
one ~1.0x1.5mm scratch of the kind described above, and one corner got shiny,
rest almost as new.
To use a screenprotector sounds like a good idea to me. Best way would be to
remove the front lid (see wiki on how to do that) and place an oversized one
directly on the LCM. You may use any type of protector that meets your taste
and is large enough to cut it to fit.
Just my 2 €cent, YMMV
