    I have never used a screen protector on any of my iPhones. All of my phone screens have been in perfect condition. I never put anything in the pocket with my phone.

    Me neither. I just turned in a nearly flawless iPhone X after over a year of use that spent 99% of its life outside of case and with no screen protector. I suppose that’s why I don’t feel the need to use a screen protector. Those who are less careful should probably at least think about using one though.

    No screen protector here. I haven’t used one since the 6 series. I try one every year just to say I did, but they don’t last more than a few hours and it comes off.

    I always use one, always have, and often share my pockets with keys.pocket knives,change etc. I have scratched my 3Gs and my 4 and have done this through a plastic screen cover.

    I might be more likely to use one if I didn’t see it on the phone. The Peel Glass I think lasted the longest since it was edge to edge with no notch cut out. I think that one lasted a week.

    I will always use a screen protector! Not only does it protect my screen but my finger seems to just glide across it smoother than with just the phone glass. Maybe that’s my imagination but it sure seems that way – LOL

    Only used one on 1 phone in the last 12 years. And that was on my X, didn’t spend the money this time on the Max.

    I have had my XS over two weeks now and haven’t put a screen protector on it yet and my screen looks just fine. The XS screen is supposed to be more scratch resistant, but time will tell.

    I hope they went back to the coating of the 6s/6s Plus. IMO, those screens were the best. There are no scratches on my 6s Plus & that phone got tossed around like crazy lol

    I am loving the XS and the more I use it, it seems to be a little faster and smoother then my X was.

    The 6/6s did have a very durable screen coating. So far the coating they used on the XS is holding up well, time will tell.

    So here's my experience. I ALWAYS used screen protectors. I bought my iPhone X and bought into Apples hype of "the most durable glass ever put in a smartphone" and went, "HOORAY!! I don't need a screen protector".

    I go literally 1 hour with my iPhone in the same pocket as my Airpods (I didn't realize this at the time until after the fact) and pull my iPhone X out an I have a huge disgusting gash at the top of my phone that goes down about an inch. It's ugly and easily noticeable.

    So my theory is we never need a screen protector until we needed a screen protector. So I won't go without one again. Just my two cents.
    On the other side of the coin, I’ve never used screen protectors and have never had anything like this happen. If I was prone to these types of accidents, I’d probably use one too, though. I just prefer to enjoy the phone as-is.

    I understand that. To each their own. 99% of the time there is nothing in my pocket with my phone. But the lone time it happened, it bit me in the rear. Lesson learned. I'll remain protected going forward. Things happen.

    Screen protectors are good and cheap enough now a days and screens so much more expensive I simply cannot justify the cost associated with the risk of NOT using screen protector.

    I am using this, pricey but got locally and had it installed, full screen coverage no gaps on sides with cases, you don't even know you have one on. Smooth edges. Perfect.

    These devices are too expensive to repair not to use a 10 dollar screen protector. I always use one and when I have dropped the phone only the screen protector breaks not the screen its a no brainer for me.

    Exactly the reason I buy AppleCare+. Neither a screen protector or case guarantee the screen or back won’t break. This way, I can use my phone naked and pay either $29 or $99 if something happens.
