    Gorilla Glass was developed in 1966 and hasn't seen use until nowabouts. This is more than likely due to the rise of the smart phone and neverending touch screen applications.

    Personally, I protect the whole thing against scratches with a Stealth Guard Protector (I have the Droid 1). Their price is really good at $15 for two full body protectors. It's more of piece of mind for me but I do like these better than the Zagg or Best Skins Ever and the price is killer.

    Good price. But from what I can see it doesn't appear to offer any significant amount of impact protection. If I drop my phone onto an asphalt parking lot I'd be more concerned with breaking it in some way than scratching it. But maybe the phones are tougher than I give them credit for. I'd just hate to crack a corner or damage something internally. What I do like about this sort of, "Case" is that it doesn't add to the size of the phone and you can still use a stock cradle.

    I've been buying Boxwave crystal screen protectors for various devices over the years. Once in a while I'll use the VZW ones in a pinch as I did this weekend when I bought the droid x. Mainly because my rep gave me a great discount for any of the accessories. The antiglare isn't bad, I made sure the glass was free of lint/dust and did a perfect job applying it you can barely tell there is a protector. There is a bit of reflection inside the protector (little microscopic dots of color) which I think is part of the antiglare effort. It does look pretty clear in the sun compared to the bare glass but there is the tiniest diminishing of clarity due to the effect mentioned above.

    Wow, didn't know Gorilla Glass was used for the Droid and the Droid X. I've heard amazing stories about it. From what I read, they plan on using this glass on future HDTVs. Tech sites say their glass is incredibly durable. Maybe I don't need a screen protector for my Droid X after all. I haven't found any great reviews for X screen protectors anyway.

    I used InvisiShield when I had a Backflip. It did what it was supposed to do, protect the screen. I was not not that concerned with clarity as much and really did not think much about sensitivity.
    Before I recieved my DroidX I poured through the forums as I wanted to keep that incredible screen true. I decided on the Steinheil Ulta Crystal and was blown away at the difference! I have shown off my new toy and most people do not realize there is a protector until I show them.

    I use Steinheil Ultra Crystal as well and am quite pleased with the clarity and the sensitivity. Most of all it makes me happy to know that the small scratch that showed me that the gorilla glass might be tough on pressure/impact but was indeed easily scratched, will be my last.

    Just go to Best Buy and get the Ghost Armor installed for 25 bux. It is guaranteed for life. Costs only 5 bux to have it replaced if it gets scratched. Doesn't hurt to have extra protection for expensive devices like these.

    I take the better safe than sorry approach. First thing I got was the screen protector from verizon. I dont care what the screen is made of.
