    I use the Spigen glass protector and I have had no issues whatsoever. They are much better than the traditional plastic protectors. Sounds like it is doing what it is supposed to. Thank goodness it wasn't the screen that got scratched.

    Yes that is true but I've been without a screen protector for 2 weeks with no issues. These aren't nearly as durable as the gorilla glass underneath. I got mine from the Verizon store.

    My concern is that it is going to get scratched to hell and I'll have to keep replacing them

    I don't know what brand they sell at Verizon. I bought my first one from the ATT store. It was a bodyguardz brand or something, I don't know but I didn't like it. You could tell the quality wasn't there. I bought the Spigen one from Amazon, the same one I had on my S4 and have never had a scratch on it. Some swear by the gorilla glass and don't use a protector but my OCD won't allow that.

    I get 25% at the Verizon store so I went with whatever they have. It really not noticeable unless you're looking for it. Just disappointed after only a day of use

    Part of me wants to take the screen protector off to see if it's the actual screen that's scratched. If it was the screen would I be able to see it while the protector is on

    I've been using the Verizon glass protector for about two weeks now. I have a Zagg on standby but didn't want to waste this. No scratches and very smooth.

    I have the Verizon screen protector I bought from the store. I think it's called Glass Pro? I keep my phone in my pockets with keys, coins, whatever's in them . No scratches.

    Generally things you keep in your pocket have a lower hardness rating than 9H. These can't scratch the Tempered Glass. Pocket sand, little grainy stuff you don't even know is there, can wreak havoc on it. That's why I've never understood the scratch tests on YouTube.

    If the scratches were on the display would I be able to see them as clearly as I do worth the glass screen protector on?

    Yeah, that's why I have it on. Sand is a screen killer. If the screen protector is getting scratched, it's doing its job.

    Probably not. Screen protectors tend to cover up the blemish on the glass.

    I love Spigen products....very high quality. I bought a couple cases (Slim Armor and Neo Hybrid with metal buttons) and am very impressed.

    I'm finding even more scratches which makes me think it's the protector. I'm very critical of my phone and I'm sure I would have seen this if it was the display.

    Is a screen protector even necessary with gorilla glass 3? My friend is telling me that he hasn't had 1 on his phone for a year and it's been fine

    Yes, if your Tempered glass scratched than the GG3 would have.
