    Everyone has different opinions on what important, for me I spend a lot on my devices and I try and keep them in the best condition possible. Does it mean I'm gonna get upset about a micro scratch, probably not. But I can understand how some can.

    Just curious, and I honestly mean no harm in saying this... But what drives people so crazy about micro scratches? You hardly ever see them unless you are in insane sunlight with the screen turned off even then you have to be bored to really notice. I know some people look for resale or whatever but at what expense? All the time and effort put into making your iPhone flawless to the point of new condition must be exhausting... It's not an uncommon thing everyone I know is terrified to get one little tiny imperfection on their phone. It seems so exhausting and a lot of created worry over such a small thing. I understand cases and keeping the bezel and back safe from drops etc.. But micro scratches seem like such a micro problem to me. Anyone agree?

    I agree. I've never used screen protectors and never used cases until I fell in love with the Apple leather case.

    I've never used screen protectors. I'm on my phone constantly. I like to keep my devices in the best condition possible. So far, I've been very lucky never had a scratch. That I can see anyway. I'm not going out in the sun and super analyzing it.

    When I ordered my Spigen case, it came with a free screen protector...I have never used one before in my life, but figured why not, so I put it on and it was on there for literally 2 seconds before I ripped it back off and threw it away. I have no idea how people use those things...

    Yeah everyone is different, and I was just curious to see why most people I know personally took this issue so seriously yet you go sit in their 35 to 40 thousand dollar cars and the carpets are stained beyond repair, seats are ripped, old coffee all over the dash... Just makes me think that's all

    I don't know whether you mean literally wiping the screen with your hand, or whether you mean cleaning the screen by hand?

    If it's the first - our skin produces oils, so you won't be able to clean away the smears etc., that are on it properly and may even add to them.

    If you mean the second - I would suggest a cloth. You don't need to carry it with you the whole time and you maybe happy to clean it once a day, so you can leave the cloth at home? It depends how much the screen picks up and how clean you like to keep it? In regard to the scratches, these could be from anywhere; if you wear rings, or you keep the phone in a bag, or in your pocket. In any of these places, keys, coins, fine grit etc., can scratch the screen. It won't necessarily be because you wipe the screen.

    Although you don't like screen protectors, it maybe preferable to use one as a sacrificial layer and change it when it's too scratched for your liking. This is what I do and is cheaper than a new screen!

    I don't know anyone who cleans their screen with their hand. I guess your hand might scratch it. I recommend using a microfiber cloth.
    I would have nightmares about a small scratch on my phone.
