Default Cowon X7 screen

I want to buy a Cowon X7 in the near future but the only thing I'm worrying about is the durability of the screen.
I have owned an Archos 5 but after 14 days of owning it I had a large crack in my screen.
Is the screen on the Cowon X7 more durable?? Can i put it in my pocket without worrying like an HTC (I'm not referring to an iphone cause I hate apple =]).

Thanks all.

I think you would need pretty big pockets.

I leave my X7 in my back pocket for the entire day and I don't have a single scratch on the screen. I also never took off the protective film that came with it, so that might be part of the reason.

To be honest, I had the 5 in my pocket one time (not the reason it broke btw) and that was a tight fit
I guess the X7 will be smaller.
But what I really want to know is; is the screen weaker than the screen of an ipod classic?
I would say yes, cause it's a touchscreen and those are just weaker. But the screen of an ipod touch also seems quite strong.
