iPhone 4/ screen protector.
When the 24th does come I'll have my white 16GB iPhone 4 and I will be applying a screen protector on it. I was thinking about its stuning retina display and wondered if I'll still see that quality with a clear screen protector on it. Yeah the new iPhone is scratch resistant, but I rather have the screen protector take all the hits and greasy fingers then the actually then the glass.

I've used many PowerSupport screen protectors.
I like the anti-glare screen ones they sell and how I never have to clean off fingerprints. Plus it allows you to move your fingers more smoothly, but it does degrade the quality of the screen. You can see all of the anti-glare "dots".
If you purchase a clear one, I'm assuming you won't notice much/any degradation.

I'm not going to use one on this phone. I have had one on my 3G and never need it. I am always careful with my devices so I'm not too worried about it. I don't have one on my iPad and I love the way it looks and feels so I'll go nude unless I see a reason to cover it.

I've had my 3GS for a year, just held it up to the light and not a single scratch, not even a single tiny chip is present in the display. The glass on the iPhone has been veeeeeery scratch resistant since day one. You can take an Xacto knife to it and be completely secure in the fact that you're not going to scratch it. The iPhone 4's glass is apparently even stronger, and is being compared to gorilla glass.
Honestly I'd be more worried about the sides than about the front and back. The chrome rim has always been the most scratch-prone part of the phone, yet nobody bothers to protect it.

I'll be putting a protector on mine for sure. I'm OCD and even with the screen protector I wipe off the grease and finger smudges all day long. I'm not bothered by it as much though because I know it's not on the actual glass. Then once or twice a year I change the protector I marvel at the naked screen for a couple of hours before protecting it again.

Again I don't believe you when you say there are no scratches on your iPhone screen. iPhone after iPhone I have gotten through advanced replacement eventually I'd gain a scratch. For the 3GS, Yes it has the antigrease screen. When you get smudges on it you simply wipe it with your shirt or what not. I tested this out and what do you know I scratched my screen. I will say I have OCD on protecting my apple iPhone/iPod/iPad, but keeping it in good condition raises the value when I want to sell them later on.

And, if you don't believe me, that's fine. I don't have any reason to lie about this and I've got pretty good vision.
