    So I've had a glass screen protector on since new and has a few light scratches on it. So it got me wondering how are the screens holding up without protection on them?? Let me know

    Depends on where and how you store the phone when not in hand. Mine's either in a holster or on a flat surface, so no issues here.

    Good as new but I don't toss my phone around. I am very careful with my phones.

    I got a fairly deep scratch and have had a glass protector on since.

    I've had my 6s Plus since September 25 2015 with no protective screen. No scratches or nicks. Looks like new. It is in an Otterbox Commuter.

    My screen, just as all my unprotected screens over the years, has held up just fine.

    I've had my 6+ for over two years, always cased, no screen protector. Looks brand new. I quit wasting money on screen protectors years ago.

    This is my first iPhone but I am careful to keep it in an Otterbox Statement case and a holster so it has no scratches.

    I'll probably be pulling my protector off this spring once motorcycle season comes back in. The screen and lack of physical home button does react well to motorcycle gloves lol

    my experience is that any screen will scratch, I always buy tempered glass for my phones.
    This time I went to uBreakiFix at 10095 A Saich Way Cupertino, CA 95014 Phone408) 255-5522
    They had a warrantied tempered glass! I never heard of that before, it's like an insurance for your screen, I paid $50 for the tempered which they installed very well. Now if I break my screen within the next two years, the repair is only $9! Beats the $150 and more I paid before for cracked screen repairs.

    I like the feel of the glass; seems much slicker, smoother. It also doesn't smudge quite so easily as the naked screen always seems to on any device. I have experienced no difference in tactile response.

    I want to take the glass screen protector off my iPhone 7 Plus very badly, but I'm OCD about scratches. I had a 6S Plus for one month before I got the 7 Plus and had micro scratches all over the screen. I am very careful with my phones and never used screen protectors on my Samsung phones, and never got scratches. Idk what the difference is on these iPhone screens but it makes me too nervous to risk it.

    I've had a couple that they sent me to try but I end up taking them off after a day or two because I don't like how they fit on the screen. I usually have no protection on the screen but I do use a case. Screen is perfect.

    It's not actually the screen, it's the oleophobic coating that's on there to resist fingerprints/etc. That drives me nuts as well and it's why I use a protector. At least if that gets a scratch I can change it out in a few minutes for relatively little money.

    I've never used a screen protector, and never had any issues. I always carry my phone in a thin case, just an apple leather case, so it has a lip but nothing excessive. I never carry it in a pocket with anything else though, but yea, I've never used one and never had scratches.

    The thing that confuses me is that these glass screen protectors are just as smooth as the screen, collect less fingerprints, and I never scratch them. I wish they'd just do the same thing on the actual screen. Glass screen protectors aren't all that bad, I would just rather not have the home button sunk in and have the 1/4" gap around the entire display. I'm still trying to convince myself that the micro scratches are worse, I'm always tempted to rip the protector off.
