    I’m so sick of using them but worry about scratches. Anyone not using one that can report how their screen is looking?”

    I've never used a screen protector on any smartphone with a glass screen. So almost 10 or so years. I've never noticed any scratches on any of my phones.

    I have decided to not use a screen protector since my first PDA back in 2006 when I bought a Palm Treo.

    Just use your device and enjoy it.

    I have never used a screen protector, except the built in one on the OtterBox Defender I used on my iPhone 5. The older type with the flap over the home button. For me, a screen protector is a waste of money.

    If you get a full glass screen one you don't even know you have one on, i can't stand the ones that don't go to edges or leave the notch out. Also helps a bit with swiping if you use a protective type case not as much lip.
    I paid $40AUD installed for mine and its perfect.

    Oh, my 6s Plus screen has no scratches or anything after 3 years with no protective screen. I don't put anything in the same pocket with my iPhone.

    I have my iPhone 7 covered by Simply Carbon Fiber. It's the only true Carbon Fiber case I've seen. The same company makes a really great glass screen protector as well.
    Has anyone decided to just NOT use a screen protector?-image_58d33f4d-6eed-45e5-a2f6-684cc7f51aeb_1024x.jpg

    Bottom line is everyone’s results will vary. Some have jobs where they sit behind a desk and the phone rides in a cradle all day. Others have more demanding environments. At the end of the day if you’re comfortable using your phone without one then go for it. As for me..... well let’s just say I’ve always used a screen protector. I have a busy life and the protector has saved me a few times along the way.

    There’ll be scratches over time.
    I haven’t been using a screen protector since the 6s Plus. If you want to keep your screen 100% scratch free, then you’ll need a screen protector.

    Screen protectors are overrated. After about 10 years of using smartphones I’ve never used a screen protector and I’ve yet to crack a screen. My wife has also never used a screen protector and has never cracked a screen. My four year old doesn’t have one on his iPod Touch and—you guessed it—has never cracked his screen.

    EXACTLY. Well written/said Doug B. I personally have always used some sorta screen protection (Zagg mostly) and it gives me a sense of security and that alone is worth it to ME.

    I always use a screen protector. Had the Bodyguardz on my iPhone X, dropped the phone face down on a pile of rocks and thought the phone was a goner. After removing the protector the phone was like new underneath.

    Without the protector I would have had to replace my iPhone's screen.

    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.
