    Better to scratch the screen protector then scratch the screen...

    i had a screen protector on my old droid, the zagg to be exact. it had a somewhat sticky and orange peel effect which i got tired of.

    on my second droid i don't have any protection. And i attempted ot scratch the screen on my old one before sending it back in and that thing wasn't scratched at all. i tried my nail, a pen, a led pencil, nothing scratched it.

    I'm too lazy to go get a new protector installed and would seem like a waste of $5 to me now. To think i used $15 before on the first one...

    I don't like anything stuck on my screen. I've never used a screen protector. I just make sure i'm sorta careful and when my phone is in my pocket, I don't keep anything else in that pocket.

    Like others have said though, it's pretty tough to scratch the screen.

    Agreed, I dont use a screen protector, and have had no issues, its glass, so there are very few things that could possibly scratch it. I do make sure to take all of my diamonds out of my pocket before i put my droid in though.

    I go bareback also...I had a Zagg on mine, I didn't mind the sticky feel to it, but it didn't like the overspray from a can of Off...I had m Droid on a table, I sprayed my legs with Off and when I picked up my Droid it had a bunch of overspray on it that wouldn't clean off with anything...I removed the Zagg and I doubt I'll put another one on. I like the feel and look of it now that I've been without a screen protector.

    Lol...yeah, I thought about that too. I guess I'd like to think that it would have cleaned right up...I was thinking that it just reacted badly with the rubberish material on the Zagg. Anyone want to test it out? :p

    I have the Seidio Rugged which has the built in protector. I couldn't push my bottom buttons.

    I don't think it's foolish to have a protector, I just think that it's hard to scratch glass. You can't do it with keys and anybody that says you can has keys made out of diamonds. I suppose it's possible to scratch it with sand but I've never experienced that.

    If it gives you the fuzzy warms then get one.
