I was at a cell phone store the other day and overheard two different sales reps trying hard to sell screen protectors to customers buying new phones. One couple looked scared to death as the rep described all kinds of doomsday scenarios that would scratch their shiny new screen. Really? Gorilla Glass 4 or 5 is some pretty hard stuff and unless you are carrying diamond tip drill bits in your pocket with your phone you are probably never going to scratch modern Gorilla Glass. Sure Gorilla Glass can crack & shatter fairly easy if you drop your phone, but does a screen protector keep glass from cracking? I doubt it. It might help keep pieces together if the screen shatters but I don't see how it will prevent the screen from cracking if dropped hard enough. When I bought new phones recently, the sales reps tried hard to make me buy screen protectors and they were persistent. I eventually convinced them that I was not going to buy any. All of this made me wonder, with modern Gorilla Glass are screen protectors really needed? If so, why? Do you use them, and if so, why? I personally have not used a screen protector on any Gorilla Glass screen phone in many years, many different phone models, and have never seen one tiny little scratch. I am not talking about Motorola's Shattershield screens, so please don't post about those. Those are not Gorilla Glass and those do require a screen protector since the outer layer (the lens) is very soft and will scratch very easily. Share your thoughts.
