    Commando just arrived. This is my first smartphone, and I'm worried about scratching the screen. I know it has Gorilla Glass and it's supposed to be tough, but how about scratch resistance? I'm a geologist so it's exposed to field conditions. Will a screen protector make it significantly less touch sensitive? I've always used screen protectors on all my other field gear (well, not my first camera, but the screen is all scratched)

    What is the consensus?

    Thanks for your input.

    I left the protector that came on it, just tore the corner off. No problems for me. I think the glass may get scratched up in time if I didn't have a protector on it. I do electrical work and my phone goes under houses and gets banged around with ladders and all kinds of stuff.

    yes its the toughest glass out there, but it still can get scrached its just very hard. With a screen protector the protector will take the scratch and u can just replace it, so I would get one.

    I'm using a screen protector and don't notice any difference in the sensitivity of the touch screen.

    I've always been very careful with my phones, but have never used a screen protector as I just don't like them. One of the reasons I got the commando was to not have to worry about scratches or any other issues due to less than stellar careful-ness. Depending on what your going to be exposing it to should dictate whether or not it is needed. I'm going naked all the way. No screen protector, no case either. it's the big reason I got it, to not have to be concerned.

    I use a screen protector on my commando . I dropped the phone this week from 3' high getting out of my truck and broke the screen. I thought this was gorilla glass?? I have had Blackberrys for years and never broke a screen. I thought this thing was tough!?

    Yes, unfortunately tough is relative to the specific hit it might take. Must have hit the glass pretty directly. I have yet to drop mine.(knocks wood)
