Author Topic: With Gorilla Glass, do you think a screen protector is still necessary?  (Read 17530 times)
« on: August 16, 2011, 02:02:12 am »

My phone is arriving tomorrow and I am having thoughts about installing a screen protector. On one hand, not having it means I will enjoy the phone and the feel of the glass as it is, on the other, of course there is always a danger of scratching it.
But.. it does have Gorilla Glass which is supposed to be tough, and I have the habit of keeping my phone on the pocket where my hanky is, while all my coins and keys are in the other.
And yes, Im probably not keeping the phone for more than 2 years anyway so might as well enjoy it as it is.
So what do you think?

I just upgraded from a HTC Magic. The phone was about a year old. Never had a screen protector on it, I work in a coal mine and my hands are nearly always dirty/dusty. The screen is almost as good as new!!

How much does a screen protector cost? A couple a bucks? Why not just buy one for piece of mind!?

Well I've enumerated some points to consider regarding having a screen protector and the cost of it is not one of them. I guess the choice is between having a peace of mind and enjoyinh the phone the way itwas intended (i.e., smooth feel of the glass)

Had a few phones - never used a screen protector. Never dropped a phone, never scratched a phone.

Don't even know what screen protectors are really. I think the base issue has more to do with your skill at taking care of your property than using a prophylactic.

Even with gorilla glass, I still used a screen protector with matte order to prevent finger prints.

I dont have a screen protector but a case that comes around the edge, protects the screen if I put it on the table or drop it. However it doesn't protect the screen when it is in my pocket with change or keys (like I would ever through my HTC One X S in the same pocket as my keys!)

But ... I have noticed I have a few scratches on my gorilla glass, despite my consideration, so a screen protector has value. But then again I will probably also only use it for 2 years and with care i think the scratches will not be a huge deterrent.
