    Yes, I never use screen protectors. Takes away from the whole feel of the phone. I don't need it to look brand new for T-Mobile when I trade it in. Even though it usually always does anyway.

    hmmm I hadn't even thought of that. Thank you. I've always used a screen protector on mine, but when I got the new one today, I couldn't believe how much nicer the screen quality was without one! Now I don't want to put one on this phone :/

    I use the phone as my GPS and in-car entertainment, I have it mounted high on my dash so I can see the display, which requires an anti-glare film. Otherwise, I would not bother with one.

    Likewise, it's in a slim case only because a case/holster combo is the best way for me to carry it, and it raises the back enough to protect the camera lenses. (Seriously, if the camera lens has to stick out that it makes the phone wobble when on a desk, the phone is too thin.)

    I went without a screen protector for the first time with my Note 5. When it was time to send it in to AT&T Next I couldn't find a scratch on it. I use a case but I hate gunky screen protectors.

    I used the tempered glass protectors for a year or so and got tired of them. I feel like the screen looks better and is more responsive without the screen protector. My phone wears an Apple leather case and that's it.

    I always use Tempered Glass on the phone, I have a dozen extras, so if there is a mark or the edge comes up a bit, I can swap them out.

    I haven't used screen protectors on my last few phones and I haven't had an issue with scratches. I don't see the need with my 7 Plus.

    Same here, i've not bothered on my iphone 6. I've had the phone 22 months and screen in very good condition.

    I did use one on my 5 but I found a few issues
    - the protector wasn't edge to edge. When I took it off you could see where it had been on (very smaller hairline scratches and wasn't as fresh looking
    - the protector i think makes the screen feel different when tapping on the screen.

    Mines insured through my bank account if i happen to drop it and smash it, i'll get in replaced. I also don't bother with cases either...

    Premium phones, showcase them

    I've tried, but between keys, sand and gravel I just can't. Even with AppleCare. I use a Zagg HDX. Hardly even know it's there.

    I'm not using one. It's been over a year with my 6s Plus, and not one scratch or mark of any kind. The screens are more durable than they used to be. I never had a protector on my iPhone 4. Towards the end I saw one tiny scratch that was barely noticeable. My iPhone 5 was in an Otterbox Defender with the built in screen. If I were a lady throwing my phone in a purse full of stuff, I might use one.

    You do realize a screen protector is clear. It's not like it's blocking the "view" of the phone. How does it remove the "joy" of the phone when it's basically transparent?

    How clear they are depend on what it's made of. Some are crystal clear, some are tinted, some are cloudy. Some have the same finger-feel, some are "sticky", some are slick-er.

    Yes, but the point holds true, he can still use a "screen protector" without removing the visual appeal of the phone. A quality clear protector will not even be noticed unless you tell someone or show them. I don't even remember I have one on my iPad, it blends in seamlessly.

    With prices ranging to over US$20 per protector, it can be rather expensive to try multiple items to find one that you like.

    With some prices and deals for Tempered Glass as low as $0.90 per protector it's worth (IMHO) giving it a try to protect an $700+ phone. But that's me..

    I have used screen protectors for the longest...and have bought at least a million tempered screen protectors for my iPhone 6, 6s & 7...NONE of which fit the new curved edged screen perfectly. Most, in fact either chipped on the edges or developed a "Halo Effect" before long. I bought Apple Care with my latest iPhone 7 Plus, and it will replace the screen for just a small amount of money...only a fraction of installing a replacement at most any shop. That fact, along with the reality that pretty much any screen protector desensitized your screen to your fingers tapping and swiping makes me go with a "naked" screen.

    I am assuming you did not mean 1-million literally,..

    Also I have never had those issues with a screen protector you mentioned. Yes, they don't go around the curved edge, but only one every got chipped. I have never had any issue with the screen feeling "desensitized" to my fingers.
