    This is my first time using a "stylus" on a phone. I generally don't like screen protectors and am worried about how they'll affect the already smooth s-pen response. Anyone have good suggestions on a good protector? I'm thinking of a Ghost Glass protector.

    I am using the Spigen Glass.t Nano on my S4 with a stylus and I will never use anything less than a real glass screen protector - it far exceeded my expectations :nerd:

    Well application went perfectly the first time with no dust or bubbles.

    Not as smooth as no screen protector but still very nice.

    Plus less fingerprints and does not effect screen clarity.

    If you don't mind fingerprints I would go with the ultra crystal over these because they are smoother.

    Well sadly going to have to not recommend this screen protector anymore. Just tried using the S pen with the screen protector and it is no good.

    Way too tacky to use the pen.

    I do not use a protector on gorilla glass, at least not in the past. I don't plan to on this note 3 either.

    Gorilla glass is nice, my OCD just won't let me chance it though. If I were to get a scratch on the screen it would ruin the device for me. It is worth $15 to prevent that.

    Thanks for the update. I'm going naked right now and will have the s_view soon. I think that will be enough coverage.

    I hear you, I work from home too, so that may have something to do with it. A lot less risk from in and out of pocket and rush situation tragedies.

    Also, by about the third time i dropped my RAZR, it dawned on me that it was indestructible. That may not be the case with this note 3.

    Yeah I leave my Nexus 7 at home without a screen protector. Just like you said, lot less risk there than out in the wild. I am going to have to get another brand of screen protector though, this one makes the S-Pen completely useless.

    I have used screen protectors on every smartphone I have ever had, dating all the way back to the Blackberry Pearl. With the Note 3, it is especially important since it is my wife's phone and she carries it in her purse. Flopping around inside her bag, there will be a greater chance of something rubbing up against the screen. And my son had dropped his S3 about a month after he got it. It cracked the screen, but because he has a screen protector on it, it continues to work without any issues. We just haven't gotten around to getting an insurance replacement for it yet.
