    I've got a screen protector on my iPhone 5 but hate the way it looks and the feeling of less responsiveness.

    What I want to know is, if you do NOT use a screen protector, do you suffer from scratches on your Gorilla Glass 2 screen?

    I don't have any scratches whatsoever on my iPhone 5 and I've had now for 3+ weeks. I don't cover it at all.

    This is more of a personal preference. I put a screen protector on mine for peace of mind. If you're careful with the device (don't put it in your pocket with keys) you can probably get by fine without it.

    Bunji is correct. It is a personal preference. Also, no one can predict accidents so if you're worried about scratches and dings then I recommend you keep your protective screen shield on.

    I don't use a protector, I'm careful with my phone, and it's been fine. I don't worry about it too much.

    4 months without one and no scratches. I do however plan to put a screen protector on soon because once summer hits I'm hitting the beach a lot & sand+ phone= scratches

    I've had my 5 since December. No screen protector (or case) and no visible scratches or marks.

    Guess it is more of a personal preference and habbit.
    For any new device, as long as there is such protector offers, I will try to get it, more for emotional reassurance.

    Hate screen protectors. Just be careful not to put your phone and keys in the same pocket and you will be fine.

    The one time I went without, my phone fell two inches to the floor and found the single piece of dirt that could scratch the glass. Even though it was tiny, once you know it's there it will drive you nuts.

    I now use the glass screen protectors. A little pricey, but it's like having nothing there, and they will scratch or break before your device does.

    I never use screen protectors. The only phone of mine to ever have a scratch on the screen was my original iPhone.

    I never put mine in my pocket with anything else and never lay it down on the screen and it is fine without one.

    Had my iPhone 5S for 4 months, currently living near the coast / beach with lots of wind and, well, sand... and even though I try to handle it as carefully as possible and I'm using the standard Apple leather case, the screen already has 4 or 5 slight scratches (visible against bright light). One grain of sand, swipe the screen, boom.

    I would have bought a Lifeproof case, but I have no postal address here so impossible to order...

    Bottom line: YES, your screen will scratch NO MATTER WHAT, if you don't use a screen protector. Forget it!

    Tempered glass screen protectors do the job of protecting and feeling nice. Well worth the small cost IMO.
