    Default Are screen protectors actually worth it?

    Is the screen protector actually worth it? They are pretty pricey and I been eyeing the zagg invisible shield for my iPhone 5s, do you guys use the screen protector and does it make a difference?

    I feel it does what it suppose to do protect the screen. Some like them some don't. Just a added layer of protection if you prefer it.

    But doesn't it effect the touch screen sensitivity with that extra layer?

    I've had screen protectors on pretty much all devices I bought the last few years. Can't say I've noticed any degradation in touch sensitivity.

    I've had the InvisibleShield HD on my 5 for almost a year and couldn't be happier. You can barely tell it's there, and it has a glass-feel to it. You just need to let it settle for about 2 days after getting it installed while the bubbles go away.

    For me it is to be safe. I just put on my first glass protector on few days ago and I will never use plastic ones again.

    No doesn't effect it at all.

    FiancÚ put one on my phone I wasn't wanting to use one. She told me it was better safe than sorry like a condom. Personally I prefer the feel of the screen without it but she did such a good job putting it on I don't feel like taking it off.

    I use the zagg screen protectors. Mainly because I like the way my fingers glide if you will across the screen and no smudges or fingerprints.

    Yup, I always apply a screen protector on all my devices on day 1 of purchase. Saved me from a few accidental scratches on the actual screen.

    I've personally never cared much for screen protectors and the only ones I actually do like are the anti glare/fingerprint ones. Plus I find that you can get a pretty okay bulk set off of eBay for a fraction of the price of a zagg set would cost you. But zaggs will probably last a lot longer even though I can't stand them. But that's what makes a horse race, Options.

    I refuse to allow my phone to be touched, used, activated without one being applied. I prefer the Spigen UltraCrystal or what is now called TruProtection Crystal.

    I use Zagg Invisible Shield (full body), no sense in messing up the GOLD...SMILE. Of course its not like the feel of real glass, but I've been using screen protectors for such a long time, I can barely tell the difference, but I can with the cheap ones. I guess you get what you pay for. My suggestion is to get a quality screen protector, you can't go wrong.

    I use only Spigen tempered glass protectors. Love the feel of the glass & added protection.

    How does it work with the fingerprint scanner?

    Is it too deep?
