    I'm using a Samsung Black Leather case on my s7 edge.

    I've tried one Tempered Glass Screen Protector but as mentioned in other posts they are affixed by the top and bottom of the shield. Mine had a thin strip of adhesive along the edges.

    However on using it it didn't feel a part of the phone and as some have said feels like it's floating.

    For now I'll not use one.

    I wish ZAGG or somebody would come out with one for both the front and back like they did in the old days
    They have one. Galaxy S7 Edge Screen Protector - HD Dry InvisibleShield | ZAGG. $30 from Zagg and from Verizon.

    I slightly modified the front film to work with my Otterbox Commuter (and sometimes with a Spigen Neo-Hybrid Crystal). I trimmed 1-2mm from the top and bottom edges, and I've gone seven weeks now with no bubbling at the corners.

    Once, a while ago I went without screen protection on my Note 2. The screen ended up with a scratch. It bothered me bad and I kicked myself for not having screen protection. I haven't had the courage to try that stunt again.

    I have the Otterbox Alpha Glass on my S7e and I really like it. It's case friendly. Has good touch sensitivity and add this slight mirrored look to the screen. The top and bottom are black but it looks sharp to me on my solver phone.

    I have owned dozens of digital cameras and maybe a dozen smartphones, going back to several Blackberry devices. I have never used screen protectors on any of them -- I've tried them a couple of times, and ripped them off within minutes each time. So long as you don't put anything else (especially coins!) in your pocket with your phone, you should be fine. I do, though, use the "flip" cases, preferring the S View flip cases. That's all the protection I need.

    I'm a firefighter. I have to have something on the screen. This is the one I'm using. Pretty happy with it.

    I've gone back and forth on protectors, but honestly, why bother with one on these curved screens?
    True. The salesman talked me into a screen protector when I bought my S7E, and it promptly began to peel up at the curved edges. Once that happens and dirt gets underneath, it's done. I had to take an exacto knife to it and trim off the overlap, which worked but looked terrible, so off it came.

    No screen protector on my GS7e

    But, I do have it in the Samsung S-view flip case... Love these things, used one on my Note 4 too... Makes it easy to hold, flips around out of the way, and doesn't block the rear camera.

    The S-view features like the quick, one swipe camera button and call answer/reject buttons are also useful.

    I've tried various screen protectors, and I hate em all...
    So, I roll naked with insurance. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค“

    I always used glass protectors but resigned myself to not have a protector for my Note 7. Now that I am used to a naked front I will not be getting a protector for the 7edge.

    I took off my screen protector this morning. I wonder how soon I'll have scratches. The clarity of the screen is indeed better w/out it though.

    EDIT: I just can't do it. I can't enjoy the phone knowing I didn't have the screen protected trying to be cute. So I ordered this:


    ...hope its decent.

    I hate screen protectors, I've had them all from generic ones that come with Cases to Martin Fields etc... over the years.

    The last time I happily used a screen protector was when I was using Non-Touchscreen Nokias.

    I have been, but I am using a very rugged case. Just tried to apply a Armorsuit screen protector and it is in the trash now.

    I think that the screen protector for smartphones has become a huge scam. Just my opinion.

    I'm very very happy with this one. So glad I found it. It doesn't impact touch sensitivity and I really like the way it looks. Very case friendly (at least with my Tech 21).

    Very satisfied.

    I can say from experience that it hasn't. I have replaced the tempered glass protector on my old Nexus 5 at least twice. The first one had such a bad crack down the center that it folded off. Thankfully, the costs have dropped, but I would much rather be safe than sorry

    That's fine if you have had that experience. But just because your screen protector cracked doesn't mean the screen on your smartphone would have. I have never cracked or severely scratched a smartphone screen but I have cracked or damaged a screen protector.

    I have seen the screen protector threads but I am curious who on here will use their phones without a screen protector? I waffle with every new phone.

    I currently have a Zagg HD waiting for when the phone arrives but am thinking about returning it and going without one all together. Anyone else?

    I will be using a case as I always do but this time around I might go without the screen protection.
    Since my original moto Droid, I've never used a protector. No scratches, no issues.

    I don't use a screen protector. My personal opinion is that the screen is more scratch resistant than the protector so I would rather feel the glass than put a piece of plastic over it that will get worn and degrade and look and feel rubbish. I have shattered my s7 edge screen from a fall which I don't belive for one minute a screen protecter would have helped with

    I have tempered glass screen protector. This is the second one I use. The first protector cracked after the phone fell on the floor, but the phone itself escaped unharmed.

    I've never used a screen protector. I've never gotten a scratch that I've noticed. I figure the screen is harder than almost anything it'll come in contact with so I never worry about it.

    Screen protectors ruin the look and feel of the awesome screens on these devices. I've never used a screen protector on any device I've ever owned and have had no problems yet.
