    Screen Protector?

    I just got my S3 and I am getting a case for it. Is it neccessary to get a screen protector since it has gorilla glass? I never had one for my droid bionic and it never seemed to get scratched at all.

    Gorilla Glass is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. Smartphones are devices worth hundreds of dollars, so to me it's not even a choice as to whether I will or won't spend few bucks for a decent screen protector - I always get one. Just the slightest scratch or scuff can be very distracting, particularly since pretty much everything you do with the phone is on the screen. If you get one that's good quality, you won't even know it's there.

    The best protection that I've found for any device is the Otterbox Defender case which is coming out this month. There is a youtube video of some idiot testing the Otterbox Defender on an Iphone 4s with a 23 story drop and the phone surviving. I have yet to see a report of a phone getting destroyed with the Otterbox defender in normal use (it is also water resistant).

    i got the zagg invisible shield, not too impressed feels a bit clingy but since i spent 15 dollars on a screen protector im not ready to just throw it away. Maybe the cling will wear off with use.

    You should have went with the one I mentioned, they are crystal clear and smooth as glass, I have used Zagg before, they give great protection, but the orange peel effect will eventually drive you crazy.

    Cybertec, does this cover up to the top and bottom or only the actual screen?

    Have not received the phone yet but got the screen protector yesterday, in my Rezound it covers the whole screen, on the S3 it will not do to the curved glass, but that is good, that means no curling up at the edges.
