    Does anyone use screen protectors for the nexus 5? I'm debating if it's needed. I believe my iPhone 4s had the same type of glass and it never scratched. Just wondering what others have experienced with the nexus 5.

    Thanks

    i thought the same thing with my phone but then it got scratched somehow. i always use them now. i like the gadget guards personally. the nitro glass is pretty good if you can find one for your phone too, then it's just a new layer of glass.

    I got an iSmooth Nexus5 HD Ultra Clear Screen Protector. Following their video directions, it went on cleanly the first time, and you barely notice it.

    If you're looking for a good Nexus 5 protector we do really good ones. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Expert-Shield-Protector-Lifetime-Warranty/dp/B00GN744MO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393495730&sr=8-1&keywords=expert+shield+nexus+5

    Check out some of our reviews.

    But if you don't fancy them that's okay as well.

    If you have any questions just ask.

    I have the anker glass screen protector, Its less than half the price of the spigen model but looks and feels exactly the same. I had the Spigen glass protecter at first but the install went wrong. didn't want to blow another 40 bucks, and happened to come across the anker. Works like a champ

    I first tried Super Shieldz last year, found it on eBay. It's pretty cheap $5-$10 shipped, usually get 3-6 depending on the phone.

    I like it, no problems with the quality and installation.

    Exactly what I've chosen to use and am very satisfied with its feel and appearance.

    Ghost armor is what I use on my devices. Great protection and feel to it. Have it on my one x and one.

    Skinomi. They're great, usually when you buy one it comes with a code for a second one for free (for my nexus 5 at least) it's inexpensive, looks great, feels great, no air bubbles (wet installation), lifetime guarantee

    I've used it on my blackberries, my nexus 5, an HTC One, iTouch

    My only complaint is with the other components of the full body protector (all four sides and back) the side with the power button has a very thin strip of protector that comes off very easy. Other than that no problems

    I would have also gotten a skinomi, but sprint sold me a $30 front and back protector and waived my activation fee. To answer your question, I would definitely recommend getting a screen protector. Accidents happen .

    I use amFilm screen protectors. I wrote a review of them here: My review of the amFilm Moto G screen protector - xda-developers

    The review is for the Moto G, but they make them for every major phone. The protectors themselves are very scratch resistant, and will last you a long time.

    I'm using the Anker Tempered Glass one. It's pretty great, and has already kept my screen safe from a drop that dented the top and bottom
