    Default HTC One: Do you honestly need a screen protector?

    Share your opinions! What are your experiences with them? Does the HTC One's glass scratch easily? If you use one t kind? Is it working well?

    I got the Otterbox Defender and love it. Everything is protected and not much bulk

    I dropped mine and cracked the screen. Now I have a screen protector on it over the crack and it helps me sleep better at night! =)

    I would say no. I have an otterbox defender but removed the screen protector and not planning on putting one on.

    The answer is absolutely yes.

    Glass will scratch. A $20 investment on a screen protector is worth it.

    To this day I do not understand people that refuse to buy screen protectors. They do nothing to the device that is bad, you won't even see it and it protects it against annoying scratches.

    I say yes, cant better safe than sorry. I'd rather spend $20 on a quality screen protector like spigen sgp ultra crystal than rather shed a few $100's for a replacement display or phone. Spigens screen protector is well worth the price. :thumbup: I use to use Zagg's hd one but when i removed it and put on a Spigen one on my Gn2 i saw a hell of a difference. Spigen won. :thumbup:

    It really depends on how you use and handle the phone. My thought is to always invest in a screen protector if possible. You just never know. Fine sand or debris in your pocket will definitely scratch at the right angle or if the condition presents itself.

    Default Re: Do you honestly need a screen protector?

    Back in the day with Dummy Phones, I didn't care but Super Phones today are costly and knowing that I will upgrade in 6 months I would like to keep the value as high as possible.


    If I knew that I would keep for 3 years and I'm eligible for an upgrade (yes, we get screwed up here 12 more months ) I probably wouldn't care as much because honestly how much will the One be worth by then?

    Definitely going to get different answers on this one.

    As for me, I just like the piece of mind it gives me having one.

    I tried an Otterbox once with an old phone. It was alright. Maybe they are better now.

    If you're paying more than $5 I would say it is. I can't believe some of these prices especially from ZAGG. $40 plus HST for it. LOL

    I paid less than $10 shipped. Nillkin Case & Screen Protector.


    BTW, I don't buy dealer add-ons. Extended Warranty, depends on the discount.

    Well in my opinion I don't like the way they feel, even the glass ones. I like the naked glass. To be honest I think that this generation of glass is pretty much resistant to most everyday things, except for sand or rocks.

    I can totally understand the peace of mind a screen protector brings, but is it worth not touch that beautiful naked glass?

    I'm sure the person who gets the phone after you will appreciate you keeping it so nice for him. Had my last phone over two years naked, and no scratches at all. Just don't put it in your pocket with your keys. BTW, the downside is that it makes the screen look ugly.

    I have the Otterbox. I left the screen protector on. I also use the multi quote button when needed.
