    Default Anyone not using a screen protector?

    Just got my phone yesterday still waiting for some screens to be shipped home. Since it's gorilla glass 2 do you think we need a screen protector?

    I don't use one, but I wouldn't assume the gorilla glass is scratch proof. I just make sure I never put keys in the same pocket

    I've been using my Galaxy S II Skyrocket since last November without a screen protector-- not a scratch or blemish to be found. With Gorilla Glass, I don't see the need for putting an extra layer of protection on.

    I have only seen the screen protectors at the local AT&T store, and they only had a very small selection to choose from. You might want to try Best Buy, and go with a ZAGG. Hope this helps.

    This. My DX doesn't have a scratch on it and I never used a screen protector on it. (In fact, I didn't even have a case on my DX and it held up very well.)

    No need to hide that beautiful screen behind a layer of plastic!

    If you would be upset for it to get a scratch, you should put a screen protector on. It is jut a matter of time before the phone slips, something hits the screen or even a grain of sand in your pocket puts a scratch on you screen. GG2 will not prevent this.

    If you love the look of the bare screen and feel it is a phone and a few small scratches are the cost of having a bare screen, go commando.

    IMO it is not if, but when will your screen get scratched. I had a screen protector on mine within minutes of taking it out of the box.

    Good Luck!

    I got my screen protector from AT&T. I am not a fan of it. It makes my screen kinda matte. It's difficult to see under the sun. But it sure is nice to know that my sx green is protected.

    I don't use screen protectors. The screens are usually very tough... and all that ends up happening with a screen protector is... the screen protector gets scratched and makes the screen look bad.

    None for me, but I have the case that flips over the screen to provide protection when the phone's in my pocket.

    It's like putting a plastic cover on your new leather couch. No screen protectors for me since my first gorilla glass phone.

    I don't use a screen protector on any of my Gorilla Glass devices including a Tab 10.1, Tab2 7 and the SIII. the naked glass is much more responsive and easier to clean with a much better feel. I do have a Rearth screen protector for the SIII but haven't opted to try it out yet.

    I hadn't planned on it, but the wait was so long at Best Buy, that they offered Zagg installed for $9.95 vs $20 + $8 to install. Glad that I did, I'm so paranoid about the screen on this. I just moved over from a Pre (-).

    Gorilla Glass is more durable but is not scratch proof. I find that with ZAGG the fingerprints and smudges and cuts down I n glare.

    Without screenguard phones screen ia really much better and eye catching. But just make sure you dont forget that your phone doesnt use screenguard LoL

    It depends on your situation. If you are around sand. I would heartily recommend. I worked on a machine with abrasive sand and it murdered my gorilla glass screen. If I had to work in a situation like that again, I would most certainly put one back on.

    In my opinion you have hit the nail on the head here. Where a particular environment produces very high risk to a piece of equipment you should do what is necessary to prevent damage. But for most people who don't encounter these types of situations the choice of a screen protector or not is one of personal choice not a necessity.

    Same here. With GG2, I am wondering what would be in someone's pocket that would cause a noticeable scratch as GG2 is supposed to be more resistant to scratches than normal capacitive touchscreens.

    No screen protector here. The 4.8" screen is why I bought this phone in the first place. Definitely not going to cover it up!

    I don't use a screen protector. My case protrudes slightly above the screen. So, I figure, unless I manage to hit the front of my phone on a corner or something, I'll probably be alright.
