    I have both. The In case snap case from MotoMaker and Halo screen protectors from Amazon. Happy with both.

    I have both, but loathe the screen protector I have. I am seriously considering no screen protectors, since there isn't a Ghost Armor kiosk in my state.

    I use the one from Verizon and can't even tell it's there.

    No case but I too use the Verizon screen protectors! Got 2 packs and installed the first attempt flawlessly so sitting on 5 spares just in case! Ha

    I just have a matte screen protector on the front (I prefer the look and feel of them), and no case (the woven back feels too nice to be covered up).

    None. If I ever add a case it would be for grip, but screen protectors are a waste. In 5 years of owning smart phones I've never had a scratch. Screen protectors start to look awful after 5 minutes but glass looks and feels great for years

    I agree but with one caveat: If you work in a harsh environment a screen protector may be necessary. For example my youngest son works in a car parts warehouse. on the occasions where he has stopped at our house on his way home I have noticed that he looked like he had been working in a coal mine from all the dust on his clothes. His explanation: "The parts might be new but they may have been setting in a warehouse for some time and nobody dusts boxes in a warehouse." The screen on his Galexy S2 is all scratched up from using it there with grubby hands. For him a screen protector would have been a good idea.

    Otherwise I feel that a screen protector is a waste of money.

    Sad to hear about that device. Chalk one up to live and learn. I work on cars, mainly pip and tires, and at times my hands might have oil or grit on them. My first touchscreen display got a protector. I have changed my view on stick on ones and have moved to ones integrated into the case.

    I put a case on mine, but only when the phone leaves the house. When I am home, phones are naked.

    Yep, he's learned a valuable lesson. To be fair the phone is quite usable but the screen is just not as bright as when it was new. He's been intrigued by my Moto X but feels that his S2 will suffice until he is able to move out of the warehouse into a job in the office.

    That's why I use screen protector since at times hands are dirty and still might need to answer phone before I can wash them.

    I just got a mime tempered glass screen protector and it freaking rocks. It feels smooth as, well, glass. Plus I hardly see any finger prints on my screen now. I had an Otterbox commuter case on my phone, but have since removed it since getting the mime. I haven't been this happy with a purchase since buying my x :-)

    Agreed. Moto x was meant to be used without a case.

    I didn't say it was meant to be used without a case, or with one. It was the constant back and forth I was commenting on.

    I use a case and screen protectors. I have dropped my phone a few times recently on some hardwood floors. I have also dropped it on some concrete. I am thankful for the case and screen protectors. I have insurance for when I decide I get tired of my case.

    Never thought i'd not use a screen protector but ever since i took mine off a few months ago i'm finding i haven't had a scratch so i'm going without, but i do use a case. 1. to keep it safe since i already broke one, and i do drop phone, and 2 because i have one of the slippery backs and they're horrid to use without a case..for me anyway.

    If I didn't have a case & screen proyector on my ohone during the week it would be destroyed within the week. I am a landscaper & work mainly with hardscapes. Lots of stone dust & fine grit all the time. I go naked most weekends though as far as a case. Always use a screen protector. Its easier to replace a screen protector than a screen. Plus, for resale, as long as your screen is pristine, you can usually get a good price.

    Hi I just got my moto x last week and I still am wondering if I should get a screen protector or just not use one bc it's such a nice display I don't want it to get ruined but also I take wicked good care of my phones. This is my first android.

    I use both and it has already paid off with the phone surviving a couple falls without a scratch. I have an iBlason tempered glass screen protector. Easy to install. No scratches or problems. I switch cases between wallet style and regular. Usually I use a Griffin Reveal. I have large hands and find the rubber along the outer rim to provide good grip. When using a slim case I also often use a Nokia 920 sleeve to reduce scratching the case or the screen protector in pockets.
