    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.

    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.
