    I removed the factory supplied screen protector from the Otterbox Defender and use the Bodyguardz ultra tough screen protector. Its has gel for wet application, or you can apply dry... I did it dry and it came out crystal clear, you'd never know I had anything on it... I like the way the Otterbox hides the Verizon branding...

    After trying a few of the generic screen protectors, ZAGG and BodyGuardz, I returned each one. Both were made of that clear bra plastic that you cant even move your finger over and looks like crap. The one fit perfectly so I used the outline of it and sent it to Photodon to make one for the DNA. I had used this company a while back to make an AG screen protector for a canon copier and was impressed with the smoothness and easy "dry" application of their protectors. They had no problem making one and it came out perfect. Hope the pics do justice. You can see there's even a cutout for the proximity sensor. The phone is in the Verizon silicone case.

    Just an update--I've been using my ArmorSuit protector for about a month now, and it leaves permanent dimples (orange peel effect) whenever you say, ever-so-lightly graze your fingernail across the surface. The protector healed from the light scratches caused by the scraping card upon installation, but it's not so great at healing from much else. The material is fairly plush, so it damages easily. Looks absolutely terrible when the screen is off, but thankfully it doesn't seem to really impede screen clarity.

    Check out spigen sgp and see if they make them for the dn a guys. I have a ultra crystal one on my note 2 and it doesn't distort the clarity at all like my zagg hd one did. They only $16 too! :thumbup:

    Unless Spigen goes back on their word, there will be no DNA accessories from them. It's a shame because they make great quality screen protectors

    even without a screen protector, Samsung displays are dim and over saturated, washed out,but putting a protector on a DNA screen is covering up a thing of beauty

    Photodon is just as good as the Spigen and cheaper. It should be the only alternative choice for the DNA.

    I got the photodon HD and hated it. It totally pixilated the beautiful screen and had a rough texture. I'm back to -Ghost Armor and happy.

    Get the regular photodon. They just adjusted the cut so it fits perfectly, and its higher quality than any other junk out there.

    Is there any consensus as to the best dry application protector? I bought some crap off of eBay and it's cut too large.

    EDIT: Just bought a set of photodon protectors. I hope these are nice!

    You guys realize it's gorilla glass 2 right? Not going to be easy to scratch.
    This. I stopped using screen protectors 2 years or so ago. These are wonderful screens, let it show. I don't care how good the protector is I can always tell there is one and hate it. Have yet to really regret it either.
    I would never ever, ever even consider putting a screen protector over this or any other smartphone screen. Really does nothing to protect anything and even the best make the screen look opaque and dull.

    YUCK!
    When I ordered my Droid DNA, I had no intention of getting a screen protector for it. Its equipped with gorilla glass 2, and shouldn't need it if you take care of your phone. At least that's what I thought. I've had it less than 2 weeks and it already has quite a few light scratches towards the top and bottom of the screen. I keep it in my pant/jean pocket with NOTHING else in it, yet it somehow keeps acquiring scratches. I had a Droid X2 for almost 2 years and never put a case or screen protector on it and it only had a few light scratches on it, about what the DNA has after less than 2 weeks. The X2 only had gorilla glass, but seemed to be much more scratch resistant. Needless to say, I've been VERY disappoint with the DNA's screen durability.

    I noticed the same susceptibility even when compared to the gs3. I've been using photodon protectors for around a month now and have been generally pleased with them. Excellent optical clarity, a little thicker than your average ebay protector (take that how you will), and venally very durable. I've had the same protector on three different DNAs in that time (verizon refurbs suck) and it has been a champ. Parts of the edges may not adhere fully, but it hasn't been a issue for me. Works with both a body glove dropsuit and generic TPU s-line case.

    Hmm I've noticed that its had a few scratches since I've had it also... and I wasn't planning on buying a screen protector. I still don't think I will unless I start having some serious scratches lol.

    So get the regular crystal clear Photodon? No anti-glare or hd? What about fingerprint coating?

    I bought the crystal with the oleophobic coating. It still picks of fingerprints, so I'm not sure the coating is really worth paying extra for.

    I went ahead and ordered the screen protector from PhotoDon. I'll be sure to share my experience with it. I ordered the Crystal Clear Film with Oleophobic coating.

    I've just used the ones from Verizon. They look great for a while then start scratching and getting less clear. Will be upgrading but haven't decided yet. I don't use a case, so no way I'd go without a screen protector.

    Just received my Photodon today- came in two days. When I hold one up to the DNA, it doesn't cover the whole screen. There is a decent size border around the whole protector. The above picture didn't have that. On one hand, it is good that pinching a case won't dislodge the protector. However, I was hoping it would be almost undetectable. I don't know if I should return it? Shame- it looks decent.

    I installed my second one today (the first had a good cut but I had transplanted it a few times). This second one doesn't have as good as a cut as the first and is bubbled up around all of the edges a good bit.

    I actually reused that same screen protector on a second device (steamy bathroom trick works wonders) and eliminated the adhesion problem along both sides and the bottom, though the top still exhibits it to some extent. I'll post a pic when I get a chance. I'm generally liking this protector.

    I would copy and post the same thing I've said in every single thread stating something along the lines of that, but I'm too lazy so here's the bottom line of it:

    Gorilla glass is scratch RESISTANT, not scratch proof. It cannot be scratched by keys, knives, razor blades, coins, etc. It can, however, be scratched by rocks and sand, small particles of which can very easily be found in dust on your tables, in your pockets, etc.
