Built in Screen Protector on Sprint HTC Hero
For all of those who don't know or bought or is thinking about buying a screen protector for the Hero... DON'T.
I told my buddy at Sprint I wanted to get one and asked which the best one was, he took my phone and took a screwdriver to the screen as hard as he could and it didn't leave a mark. Apparently the screen is already scratch resistant.
I just thought I would let ya know.

This is true but accidents do happen, for example, I forgot my phone was on my lap when I got out of my car and it flew to the concrete..... but wait there's more, before I had realized it my foot had already began nearing its decent right on the back of the phone. This mistake made zero scratches but GOUGES, 4 of them and I was pissed because I tried to baby the hell out of my phone. oh yea and this happened when I still had a gel case on it, lol

This is good to know. I'm overall pretty happy with the screen on the Hero. I had a Zagg screen protector on it for awhile, and wasn't overly thrilled with it. It is seemingly impossible not to get some amount of dust trapped under there, and it's really annoying when you're reading emails on a white background. I also didn't like the feel of the Zagg. To me the uncovered screen (but kept clean) works the best.

I said it in THIS THREAD and i'll say it again ...
The screen on the Sprint Hero is Oleophobic coated glass (does this mean my screen has a fear of oleo's??)
Just for clarification purposes, oleophobic doesn't make the glass any stronger but rather makes it harder for dirt/oil to stick to but even with that said .... a screen protector is kind of pointless on these devices because if your doing something that's crazy enough to scratch a glass screen, its going to scratch despite any kind of plastic screen protector.
