    For people with the phone, do I need a screen protector? When I had an iPhone 4 with GG I didn't use one and saw very minmal scratching. I have HD Zagg on my S3, but unfortunately its not available on the N4 (only the original). Thoughts on going nude?

    Don't have the phone yet, but I have a Zagg Invisible Shield for front and back waiting at home for it. Never liked them until I had it on my EVO 4G LTE and iPhone 5. Only thing is they don't have the HD version for Nexus 4, so I bought the regular one. If the HD does come out I will pay a few bucks extra to upgrade to that.

    Read that even though the gorilla glass 2 protects form many scratches, there are some that stil can scratch the screen. You paid 300+ for it, why not get a $1 screen protector and keep the device near mint?

    ebay, you can find them everywhere. You might have to buy 2-3 if you are inexperienced of putting on screen protectors because you will mess up a bit

    I can second this recommendation. I am extremely careful with my phone and have never used a screen protector for my N1, or GNex. But my N4, after about 4 days, got a scratch right in the middle of the front screen, deep enough to feel with my finger nail. I have no idea how it happened. (With a light-colored wallpaper it's not as noticeable.) It bothered me enough that I bought a second N4 (arriving today) and will either give the scratched one to my husband, or sell it on eBay. Husband doesn't care, except he's rough on phones and maybe shouldn't have the N4 at all. He needs an Otterbox.

    same here. I have a very faint one on the front but there's one spot on the back with many little scratches that I have no idea how it got there. looks like I rubbed it around on something for 10 minutes. i'm about to order a full cover from somewhere
    I didn't have anything on my galaxy nexus and the screen just has a couple small ones. I think I could last with the front screen but the back glass isn't as good quality it seems like

    I had front and back protector on for 2 weeks... But I missed the naked screen so much that I just peeled the front protector off and am loving the buttery smoothness.

    I'm keeping the back one on for just a little longer...

    I do have a carry pouch that I have it in when not in use so I'm not too concerned about scratches on the front screen right now.

    If I can get a bumper, I'm peeling of the back screen protector too and don't think I'll go back to protectors for a while.

    This phone feels too amazing naked in the hand to resist, lol.

    For every mobile electronic you have that you have a chance of droppping, get a case. It'll be worth it in the long run. You can get one and a screen protector for only $5 on ebay or something

    I had a matte screen protector since I got mine to avoid having to wipe the fingerprints off but it made the pics and screen a little "grainy" looking so I went naked. If you want to enjoy the richness of the colors and nice displays that these screens have to offer, I say go naked. New phones and tablets come out so often and we always want to upgrade so you probably won't even have it that long to have to try and protect it so much. Get a case and leave the screen naked IMO
