I'm about to exchange my Nexus for a new one (at Costco) and I want to take the opportunity of having a new phone again to use a screen protector (even though I hate them). My Nexus is only six weeks old and has a pretty nasty scratch right in the upper middle of the screen and is driving me absolutely crazy. I sit at a desk all day and I am super careful with the phone (never dropped) and have NO IDEA how the scratch even got there, I had my OG for 2 years without a screen protector and never had a single scratch on it. So now I'm thinking that for the first year or so I'll just use a screen protector.
I have used wet application screen protectors in the past and really hate the feel of them, and I hear the dry ones have a much better feel to them. I know the Steinheil one doesn't go edge to edge because of the curve of the screen, how annoying is that to people who have it installed? I've heard the Martin Fields go more edge to edge but will begin to peel up. What I'm wondering is if you use the Martin Fields with a case that goes slightly over the front edge of the phone will it hold down the screen protector? That seems like it would give the best of both worlds, has anyone tried that yet?
I've also heard about Boxwave and Clarivue. If anyone has any other suggestions of which dry screen protectors would work for me I would really appreciate it.
