    Default Screen Protector - Yes or NO?

    Just wondering if you all are currently using screen protectors on your iPhone 5 or 5S? If so, what kind? I like the feel of the screen without one, but I'm worried about scratches.

    Also, has anyone used a glass screen protector? If so, how is it?

    For those of you that don't use any screen protection, do you have any scratches?

    Thanks!

    Default Screen Protector - Yes or NO?

    I don't use a screen protector never have. The gorilla glass is not prone to scratches from normal use but if you have your phone in your pocket with your keys that might pose a problem

    My older phones that used plastic material for there screens and those with a styles use to develop scratches on heavy used on screen game control areas but it's never happened on any of my iPhones

    Default Screen Protector - Yes or NO?

    Always use them. I have the Zagg glass screen protector on both my personal and work iPhones. I love them and the feel Is just like the glass screen. If put on right you can't even tell it's on there. I'm mobile right now but check out the accessories forum there is a whole thread on the glass protectors.

    I use the screen protector you can purchase from Verizon. They come in a three pack. Once on you almost never have to change them. Probably an illogical decision lol but I like to have one on my screen

    No plastic screen protectors. Only tempered glass.

    I never use one on my iPhones, nor a case, never needed too, I've never put a mark in my iPhones. On my siblings 5 and 5c I use the tech armor. Not expensive and work good enough.

    I'm a little biased when it comes to screen protectors but yes I have always had one on my phones. To people that say they don't have scratches on their phone without a screen protector and they've had their phone for more than 6 months, 9 times out of 10 I can find tiny fine scratches throughout the screen. Again, my view on screen protectors is biased being a diehard ZAGG user.

    Always use them. I usually buy the cheap 3x-5x plain clear ones. Some are better than others but in general they work great. If they do get a scratch, I put a new one on. They've lasted as long as my device has in most cases. I never really liked the older more expensive orange peel zagg covers.

    One time in the car the cover saved me. Had my iPad on my lap under my coat, got out of the car quickly and the iPad flew off my lap & skidded across the parking like a frisbee. The screen cover had scratched but the screen underneath was still like new.

    I definitely believe in protecting the screens. ...I love the look and feel of tempered glass. However, both of my iPads are currently in Otterboxes.

    definitely yes and using screen protector seems to become one of my habits ever since I left some scratches on my last mobile (with keys not nails)

    I had become a non-user (because I will not place anything into the same pocket as the phone) and didn't have any problems until recently when I was cleaning my phone screen and discovered a significant "scuffy" kind of scratch. Apparently it came from the cloth I was using or perhaps there was a tougher piece of dirt that I pushed around with the soft cloth. Either way...I have now put protectors on all my devices. I usually go for the inexpensive options with 3x-5x per package. Incidentally the screen cover I put on the phone seemed to have camouflaged the scuffy scratch. I will use them from now on even though they are a bit irritating and I prefer the "naked" screen. Gorilla glass is resistant to scratches; not impervious to scratches.

    When you have as many ear piercings as I do, you use one. My screen would be destroyed in a matter of days if I didn't.

    I've always used them on my phone since it's always in my pocket. I'm currently using the Zagg Glass. It's really good.
