    Default Screen protector or not?

    Just ordered my HTC one from Sprint telesales and they asked me if I wanted them to put the screen protector on before they ship it for 9.99 . I didn't do this and I usually don't like screen protectors on my phone's..do you use one of did anyone order it on the phone?

    I didn't order one from Sprint but I did order a Skinomi protector off of ebay. Gorilla glass can still get scratched. Had a Zagg shield on my 3D and had to get it replaced through Asurion for a bad speaker, was without a screen protector for about 2 days and ended up with micro scratches all over the screen.

    I have had my EVO 3D dancing around in my pockets and accidently hitting my keys for a year and i can say my screen looks about the exact same as when i bought it.. I assume the next generation gorilla glass on the One would be even better

    The ZAG Screen Protectors are quite useful.

    You are either lucky or I am just unlucky. The micro scratches on mine weren't visible with the screen on but made it look like crap when it was off.

    I recommend buying a tempered glass screen protector.. i've seen many of my friends drop their phones face down on the ground and the screen never crack.. just the glass screen protector

    I think Spigen has one up for pre-order on Amazon.. ships April 10th i think

    Screen protectors detract from the visual interface IMHO. I don't use them. Just keep your keys in another pocket and you'll be fine.

    Keys won't scratch a screen but I still always carry them in a different pocket.

    And I'm the same way. Never used a screen protector, but if I did I would go with tempered glass

    I tried looking for a screen protector on the sprint website when I preordered it last night and couldn't find anything. Strange...so they will actually open the box for your phone and put the screen protector on for you? I would pass on that.

    I used a screen protector on previous phones but decided against it on my Evo LTE. I keep it in a pocket by itself and it has 0 scratches on it. I definitely prefer my phones withOUT a screen protector now.

    I always use invisibleSHIELD and am considering just using a full body instead if getting a case.

    I ordered an xtreme guard screen protector. Thinking about getting one for the back. I don't do cases. Xtreme guard is pretty good for the cheap price. Better than regular ones and less than Zagg but sufficient.

    Its funny, I know everyone swears by Gorilla Glass and its supposed to be great, but there is always that chance that something scratches it and then you are stuck with big fat reminder of how for $3 you could have prevented it. Cover that screen and never wonder again

    True, but the screen protector takes away from e user experience. In so e cases, more than a couple little scratches.

    I think it is cute that they have a big 100% satisfaction gurantee plastered on the product page, but if you go to the "our policy" page it sure doesn't look like what I would expect from a 100% satisfaction gurantee.

    Looks like bull actually.

    i bought the Ultra Crystal Clear one, wish i had seen that one before i bought mine. Is it really that much better? I might just try to return it and buy the one you mentioned.

    No case, no screen protector. I bought this phone for the look and feel, don't wanna compromise

    I've got accident insurance for drops and metal won't scratch gorilla glass, it's harder minerals like sand etc that give minor scratches,

    I just like the feel of glass, plastic won't do
