    So I have tried numerous tempered glass screen protectors and ALL end up with debris along the edges that annoys the heck out of me. I am considering just going without a screen protector. Good or bad idea?

    I was fine with going without a screen protector on my note 5 but not on my note8 with the curved edge. It's all up to you and your preference but for me screen protector is a must

    Depending on how you are with your phone. I never use them, always have a pocket with nothing else in it or a separate space in your bag. Just don't put other stuff with it where you have it.

    I once dropped an LG G3 face down, and the screen protector shattered but the screen didn't. And I banged the Pixel xl I just traded for the Note against something while trying to get it away from tiny hands. and the screen protector got a scratch but the phone didn't. I'd say if you have small children around or are clumsy, have hand problems, etc that the screen protector is a good idea. But that seems like a personal choice and each to their own.

    The glass varieties can present issues.

    I use the Official Samsung Film style screen protector on my s8.

    Personally I wouldn’t want to go without some form of this type of protection due to any scratches etc affecting the resale value and to be frank if I managed to acquire some form of mark on my screen I’d be forever drawn to it.

    It would be great, but I'm too nervous. Personally I'd go without a case before I went without a screen protector.

    No screen protector on my Note 8.

    Didn't have one on my S7E either, and the screen is in perfect shape.

    Personally my bodyguardz glass works great no dust buildup at all. As far as going naked no not worth the deductible I would have to pay to get it replaced.

    Haven't used a screen protector in years. Also haven't damaged a phone in over 5 years so I guess that's why I don't see the need.

    I'm torn only because I'm not sure how they will adhere to the Note 8 curved screen. My son (age 14) and I have Note 8's arriving tomorrow. I have had BodyGaurdz on my previous phones and enjoyed them. Wife, son and me have all broken them too, thus I really can't see NOT having one as those breaks would have definitely damaged or broken the screens.

    Currently I do not have one on my Note 5 as at some point it began to bubble or lift up since my phone is bent by like 1mm due to sitting on it several times Oh well.

    The case I bought my son comes with a glass protector but I may hold off on using that one and instead have the AT&T Store put a couple Bodygaurdz on ours. Just not worth the risk on such expensive phones. It's not the end of the world as I've had two screens replaced on iPhones and the cost was like $60 each time. Almost the same price as a glass guard.

    Exactly. I’m usually really good with my phones and never really scratched a screen... but I’d go nuts if I had one in first year and things happen beyond your control so I usually use a screen first year and then second year I’m less concerned and usually take it off and nothing usually happens for next year. I still use case though. It’s really up to the persons OCD levels.

    I did remove my tempered glass screen protector. It was awful. I went with a film from zagg. It's amazing. Just be careful about the 1st 24hours or so and after that it's on there for good.

    Amazon has spigen film. 2 for $10

    Well I removed it as I was getting VERY annoyed with the debris on the edges. I must say....I am VERY glad I did. Man is it a joy to use this screen with nothing on it. It looks AMAZING!

    I have a plastic Ringke protector, but I haven't put it on yet. I just love the sleek feel of the glass on this thing.

    I had the Verizon tempered glass protyector on my Note 8, and I didn't have any problems until the phone had had it on for about two weeks. Then the sensitivity was falling off, and the screen started making small clicking noises when I tapped it, which told me that the protector was lifting off the screen. So I took it off, and it's like a different phone. It is very sensitive to touch, but I feel like I have to have some sort of protection on the screen. I've been reading about the Dome, but all the reviews I've read say it doesn't work well with the Otterbox Defender. So I'm not sure what to do. I've never dropped a phone (jinxing myself here), and I've never scratched a screen, but there's always a first time.

    The BodyGuardz ES line is coming soon to Note 8. It removes the dot matrix and adheres better on the curve so it will not pop off.

    Pure Arc ES for Samsung Galaxy uses a proprietary adhesive technology for full-screen coverage. The glass is extra secure and will not pop off with every day use. Full-screen adhesive also preserves precise touch sensitivity, plus the micro-dot matrix has been removed. Pure Arc ES is the industry's first curved, tempered glass to use adhesive on the entire screen. We are proud to offer the most advanced protection for curved screen devices.

    Went without a screen protector for the first two weeks; I now have scratches all over the screen. Some are deep enough to feel when using the s-pen. I use the s-view case and have been very careful with the phone. The screen on these scratch very easily.

    No screen protector on my note. Didn't have one on my Pixel XL or my iPhone SE and I had no problems or scratches. if I want probably going to sell the Note one day I'd go naked.

    Phones used to be made of more durable stuff like plastic and rubber. But people would complain that it made the phone look/feel cheap and not "premium" enough. Now they use the more fragile, premium stuff to make phones and we like it and immediately cover them in rubber and plastic. Silliness.

    It does, until it get scratches, I've dropped my new phone TWICE already since I got it, the screen protector shattered but the phone was intact.....glass tempered saved my phone, I bought the loyalty program at the Go Wireless Verizon store and they will exchange for free the glass protector ANYTIME for as long as I own the phone!!

    The loyalty program with the glass tempered are $80 they will change your broken protector anytime as long as you Bring the broken one in.

    All depends on the type of user. I don't even get scratches on my phone cases so if you're a person like that you could probably get away without it. But if you're one to drop your phone all the time then a case and protector is for you.

    My daughter must constantly drop her 6s. Not a cheap phone for a teen and always concerned the way her case looks but must always slip out of hand when her hands are always full of various bags and gear. So I got her a tempered glass one day cause her plastic screen protector just gets destroyed with scratches that I'm surprised she can read through it... but she dropped and cracked the tempered glass the first day lol! So I reluctantly put back another plastic screen because she feels the plastic works better for her to absorb shock. I gotta get some pics of it when I get a chance.

    The Whitestone protector is a really good glass protector for the Note8, but it’s also very pricey.

    If you want film, the Spigen Neo Flex looks pretty solid
