    I've removed invisibleshields before. They don't leave any residue behind, even after being on for a long time.

    The Droid is remarkably durable. It feels sturdy and apparently it is.

    No sticky feeling at all. I took it off because the corners were starting to show small air bubbles...touch screen feels better naked imho.

    My g/f one time grabbed my phone to look at something and it accidentally hit the wall. Phone was fine.

    I got to see the first pictures of someone's broken screen. I cringed.

    I have a screen cover and clear case. I dropped my droid a few weeks ago and the clear case shot half way across the room. A small scratch on the screen cover, but nothing else. The phone didn't cut off or anything. These things are pretty sturdy.

    yeah, until you drop it.

    man.. mine came with a scratch. right on the frame between the menu and home buttons, at the bottom. i didn't notice while i was at the store, i was distracted by that big beautiful screen.. anyway, i think it adds character. i haven't dropped mine yet though.. it will happen, and i will also scream like a little girl. but i doubt it will do any major damage.. this thing is tough.
