    Default Re: Is a screen protector necessary?

    I had a Droid X that went naked for the year I used it and I didn't have a single scratch on it. I had a D3 for two weeks naked before it had a "scratch." I say "scratch" because if you cleaned the screen, it disappeared. But once it got finger oils in it, it became noticeable. It was like the outer coating of the screen came off. I've got an iPhone now that obviously has a screen protector on it (SGP Ultra Crystal - they are the best IMHO). I've also got a Bionic that I think I'm converting to shortly, and I'll be picking up an SGP Ultra Crystal for it once SGP gets the proximity sensor issues ironed out.

    Whatever you do, do not use the Skinomi TechSkin. It requires the use of a special solution to be sprayed onto the device and the back of the skin ( which is supplied in the kit). I applied the skin according to the directions, and now it is junk.

    I had a Xoom with Gorilla Glass which I returned to VZW for a Tab... just before I boxed it up, I figured 'd test out the glass with my fear... keys in my pocket... not a mark on the glass. I even tried a wood screw from my tool bag.

    I think the Bionic is safe without it. The only reason I had purchased a screen protector was for anti-glare, I found the glare to be annoying while riding the train

    I'm not quite sure how many times this needs to be said, but I'll say it again. Gorilla Glass is exceptionally hard. It can handle things like keys and knives and other metal. IT CAN BE SCRATCHED WITH SAND. Sand is just about everywhere, even common dirt. A dirty hand can have small sand particles on it that will scratch Gorilla Glass very, very easily. Again, these are well known facts that have been repeated numbers serous times for over a year now. Not sure why people can't understand.

    True sand just got my bionic all over. Sucks. Never had a issue with d1.

    Hell yeah it is! I was using a screen protector from my wife's Thunderbolt, because I'm cheap. It started collecting dirt around the edges so I took it off. The next day, dropped it in my pocket and the chain on my dog tags scratched it. Two parallel lines about half way up the go half way across the screen.

    Nope. The screens now days are not designed to require a screen protector or they would come with the phone. I know some people will argue that u should. I've not had one scratch on mine since owning a phone with gorilla glass.

    If you want a thin phone over anything, carry your phone without a case or any kind of screen protector. Me? I suck with phones. I drop 'em all the time. I do maintenance work and my phone would get filthy. I got an otterbox defender out of fear and/or necessity when I got my bionic. All my joy of having a skinny phone went out the window when I installed this monstrous case! My phone literally double in thickness! And dont get me started on the belt clip! When I wear my phone with the screen out, it looks like I'm carrying a flat screen t.v. on my hip! I tried putting it in my pocket, but the grippy rubber case makes it stick to the pocket material, sometimes peeling part of the case off. I've given up now I just carry the phone in the belt clip(screen in).
    ....8 months later. My phone looks and works great! The otterbox is awesome! I actually got used to the big rubber box. The rubber makes it easier to hold. I take the case off regularly, and the phone looks brand new. I carry the phone sans case every now and then, but it always feels too thin and fragile. All in all, I'll keep my bionic in the otterbox.

    Looking back on this, I'm glad I decided not to get one. Screen is doing just fine without one.
