This is a discussion where there is no right or wrong answer. Oems are making screens better and of stronger material. Some will tell you that a screen protector just distort from the true colors, get dirt and dusty and eventually get chucked. SO is it worth it. My opinion: 1) depends what environment you work. I work in an environment with oils, fluids, and I rather not touch my screen like that and since you can grab a set of cheap screen protectors off the net for like a few bucks. So to me I rather throw a screen protector on it...though for my nexus I will probably like to give those 3m natural light screen protectors a try. 2) Are you the type who put your phone in your pocket? If so you may want to throw a screen protector on it. In the end it depends on the person. Now I must admit early I got scammed by best buy (really its on me for not doing the research) to pay 20+ bucks for a screen protector (invisishield). It would be good for like 6 months before I had to buy another one. I checked on amazon for alternates and found some cheap screen protectors (a pack of 5) for $1 (yall know ho amazon is pay $1 for an item and 5 for shipping) but still its still cheaper than best buy. I must tell you that there was no real difference between the two. So if you do prefer screen protectors look around for cheap protectors because for one most of the screens really dont need them, it will protect fine. Just my in sight I am looking to hear whether you prefer protected screen or no protection. And if you use a screen protector what brand.
