    So I have a screen protector on my phone and there is a hair under it, a small one. So if overtime will it puncture or damage the glass? Because im picky about that so yeah, help, thanks!

    I doubt it would break the glass and it should be seated pretty firmly in place if the protector is nice and secure. I'd say there's a way outside chance that maybe it might scratch it, but most likely it will just be annoying. Do you have any extra protectors? The one I bought came with three. If you do just replace it and chalk it up as a small loss for your peace of mind.

    Well of course a hair wont break glass common sense. But will it hurt it?

    I'd say slim chance of a scratch. If it's gonna bug you, I know it would bug the hell out of me, just pony up the dough for a new protector.

    I see, you meant puncture the protector. My fault, sorry if I sounded rude.

    Enjoy your d2g as much as I do mine!

    roflol, a hair? you're concerned about a hair?

    I was just thinking about starting a thread about how many times I've dropped my D2 in the cat box. Yep, right in the cat litter with all that fine dust and stuff. I've probably had it happen at least a half a dozen times since I got my D2 in September. Twice this week.

    I don't use a case nor do I use a screen protector. If you choose to use one, that's up to you I'm not going to tell you how to spend your money.

    Now quit worrying about the hair.:)

    Below is a video for everyone's enjoyment.


    There is also one with a guy stabbing it with a pair of scissors but I wouldn't link that because there is rap music in it and it may have unacceptable language for the Forum.

    That's impressive. Every phone I've had in the past got destroyed if I made the mistake of putting it in the pocket with my keys. Well, not destroyed I'm exagerating a bit.

    Thats amazing, I would never even put my droid in the same pocket as my keys. I'm still sticking with the invisible shield though, and if it had a hair underneath, I dont think my ocd would allow it to stay.

    Here is a pack of three screen protectors for $0.02. Check it out. This way if you remove yours you'll have a replacement plus 2 extras.

    The Motorola Droids have Corning's Gorilla Glass. This glass is nearly impossible to scratch.

    I didn't use a screen protector on my Droid for over a year and never had problem. I am going on almost 2 months with D2G (same glass), and also not a mark.

    Screen protectors suck for screens like ours that don't need them. You lose touch sensitivity.

    I like using a screen protector though, not only for the added security, but I feel my finger can slide/glide easier on the protector rather than just on the screen itself.

    So do you think that using a screen protector will really degrade the phones reaction to your touch and movements significantly?
    Because if that's the case I'm removing mine.

    I've had many types of protectors on both my Droid and d2g. you will always lose some sensitivity with a protector, its just another layer to go through. As for removing it? If you bought the cheap junk they sell at Verizon, rip that thing off. Its an awful screen protector for its price. if you really wanted some protection, try a brand called zagg. They make amazing screen protectors. they are a little more pricey, but they are my personal favorite, and well worth the Money.

    for clarification: a protector like that at Verizon, or a cheap one that comes in packs of three, yes there honestly is a noticeable difference in sensitivity, but with a more expensive, thinner, non plastic protector, there still is a loss, but not a very noticeable one.

    FWIW Gorilla Glass can be scratched, but it really takes a bit of bad luck for it to happen.

    I've heard sand will scratch it, but as I mentioned my D2 has gone in the cat box on several occasions. To me cat litter is as course as sand but I don't know. I just know from being in the forum that somehow or another people do manage to scratch their Droids.

    Now you guys who work in Diamond mills and such, you shouldn't take a Droid with you in there. Diamond dust I know will scratch it. ;) I kinda doubt there is that many of you who work in diamond mills but this is the D2G so I suppose it's possible.
