    I've also seen videos of people taking a knife to the screen with no scratches. Since I don't plan on hitting my screen with a knife, I think it'll be ok without a screen protector
    Thought the same until I found a small scratch on my screen from presumably putting the phone in and out of my pocket. Jeez. Went and got a Zagg HD dry application film after that.

    I've always used a sgp neo hybrid on most of my phones, and the N7 one looks even more awesome than previous models. I need a case.. Can't afford to not have it! Screen protector.. Not sure on this phone.. As others say the edge is troublesome. I've been lucky and never broken a screen (must be anal retentive on protection?!). ☺

    I'm reading on here that with Gorilla Glass 5 some are going to not use screen protectors or rip the built in ones out and go naked.

    Remember the S7 screen and how they are scratching easily. Do you really trust using no protection?
    I plan on keeping this phone for a while which is weird for me. Not too terribly worried about resale at this point. That's really the only reason I would worry about it.

    I might be doing the exact same. I've been searching online for the past few days trying to find a decent screen protector for this phone. Doesn't seem like it's worth the trouble since the edges are causing problems for everyone. I'm probably just gonna keep the phone in a case & try my luck with the naked screen.
    Exactly what I've been thinking of doing. I have searched and searched and searched and haven't found anyone that said they had one installed that didn't raise on the edges with a case, or bubble, or rainbow, or fail to stick, etc. etc. I'm not wasting money on any of them until I see some real results from someone. I'm just gonna puta clear case or maybe a wallet case on it and just be careful with it.

    Before I got the phone I thought for sure I was going to use a screen protector since I have been doing that with my last two phones (S4 and S6), but now I might be going naked. The curved screen seems to be making finding a good screen protector next to impossible. Plus using it without one has reminded me how much better glass feels than a screen protector and since I can't stand tempered glass protectors and how they fit, I will probably be going naked on this one.

    I like a thin case and no screen protector. Currently using the Spigen crystal clear neo hybrid.

    Naked screen. Got a VZW Zagg but took it off due to bubbles and peeling edges and hoped it would improve screen sensitivity. It didn't. Got a VRS crystal minx kickstand case. It does cover buttons and has thick bumpers but I doubt it would prevent damage in a fall. I anxiously await reports of any kind of screen protector that doesn't peel with a case?

    I've always used screen protectors on my devices until now. Attempting to get the screen protector to stay down on the edges is an exercise in futility.... at least for me.

    Yup. Tried 2 screen protectors (including Samsung's official version) and it was a disaster.

    Naked screen + thin case + smartphone insurance = win, win.

    Yup. Sounds familiar. I've tried 3 different screen protectors, the last one being the official version from Samsung also which was not case friendly for me at all. I've got a thin Spigen case and phone insurance as well so I guess I'll just go butt *** naked on the screen for now.
