    I remember you guys talking about gorilla glass being used on phones like droid 1. What phones are they using it on now?

    Technically speaking..no. I think we all use the screen protectors as a just in case. I didn't have anything on my storm and it never got scratched. Not saying it can't happen, and I haven't heard of anyone with a dx that complained about the glass....

    Swyped while being lazy in the DXForumApp

    I had my X for the weeks before it got scratched...but I had it on a exposed pocket protector, and I work in a kitchen....only one scratch....now sporting screen protector and it covers the scratch.

    A screen protector is a good idea because anything short of a diamond can be scratched. Gorilla Glass just means it's incredibly tough and can be incredibly thin and hold up. :D This means lighter and better with temperature variations and extremes.

    Look on eBay. They're dirt cheap.

    Rather than post a new thread (or search the archives...heh) I'll ask:

    Any opinions on what the best screen protector is?

    Anything but the first ones Verizon was selling. ;)

    The ones I got from eBay were sold by clearscreenprotectors.com -- worked fine, never a problem with touch recognition, but a lot of grease build up under it and eventually had to pull it off to clean the screen. I imagine that's a common problem with all screen protectors.

    I got 3 for either $1.02 delivered or $3 and still have one I need to get on later. :)

    Caveat. Mine were for the D1. The DX might not be so cheap. :D

    NB, first post...

    Re screen protectors I've used: Have used several other PDAs + iPAD currently. FWIW, I've used BoxWave's crystal protectors for several years (< 10 tho). Not assoc w/them at all. Just happy w/their protectors. Just got a Droid2 + a DroidX so ordered 1 each yesterday. We'll see, but if their history (at least w/me) is an indicator, it'll be great. Can't speak to other protectors since I haven't used others.
