It all depends on how careful you are, and if you're going to be using a case. I have a phone (G2x) with 'Gorilla Glass,' which is simply the brand name of a type of Corning reinforced glass, and I carried it in my pocket with keys, coins, etc, with no screen protector for over a year without a single scratch. Till the day it scratched, at which point I wished I'd had it covered.

That said, I'm still going to put on a cover. I ordered the ArmorSuit, mostly because everything I've read about them indicates that (while trickier to apply) they don't detract noticeably from screen clarity/color and are much easier to put on bubble-free.
