    My experience is that you definitely do not need a screen protector for the Droid X. It has a "Gorilla Glass" screen which is highly resistant to scratches or mars. My screen protector was always smeared and picked up dust along the margins and also showed a scratch, so I took it off and the screen remains perfect months later. If you wipe it occasionally with a microfiber cloth it will look like new.

    Agreed. I have never used a screen protector. I rub my phone screen on my pant leg, shirt arm, etc. all the time to clean the screen. It's still in pristine condition.

    I had the Inivisheild protector which is very thick and Vinyl like. I lost alot of feel and screen responsiveness. I am now using the Seidio protector which is great. Doesn't scratch or smudge easily. I have mo phone in my pocket alot with keys so I like to have the screen protected. That being said the rest of the phone looks like sh*t. It has been dropped numerous time "exploding" with the back cover and battery flying in opposite directions.

    Unless you keep your DX in a purse where the screen could potentially grind against metal objects (ie keys) you will do much better w/o a screen protector.
    I tried a 5 star protector from Amazon and it collected smudges like crazy and was plain ugly. I've had my DX for 9 mos. and the screen is perfect. That's with smacking the screen against some pretty sturdy objects too.

    You just need a screen protector made of matte anti fingerprint material.

    After ruining my Omnia by using it for a year without a screen protector, I would NOT run the X without one. Is the screen tough? maybe... but a little protection goes a looooooong way.

    With that said - Im not a phone whore, so I will use the X for at least 2 years.

    Check this one out at Amazon. It has a matte finish and I love it. Really reduces glare and fingerprints are pretty much non-existent. Reviews talk about brightness reduction but for me it is negligible.
