Do scratches on your screen protector drive you crazy?

So today when I carefully analysed my baby, I noticed a long scratch on my screen protector. It's pretty annoying to be welcomed by it every time I look at my phone.
Any one as OCD as I am? I'm gonna change screen protectors just cause of this.

Nope. Bubbles and debris under it yes. Scratches just mean it's doing its job and the screen itself isn't scratched.

Not really, i usually use cheaper protectors so I just replace them ... No biggie.
I'm not using any protection on the screen right now though

I'm like zachpenguin; I can't stand bubbles or bits under my protector but I don't mind scratches. I only care about scratches on a bare screen because I know it's there forever

They don't bother me on my screen protector because I don't use a screen protector.

The screen protector is much more prone to getting scratches than the screen itself.

They used to bother me like crazy. I would immediately change out the screen protector if it got all scratched up. However, now I'm okay with it. I realize that it's doing the job and better that than my phone collecting them. When I switched to the Zagg Glass though, scratches no more! :yes:

It does NOT bother me because for one it's on the screen protector and not the screen itself (which is a relief) and I can just get a free replacement from Zagg.

I am the same way. I apply my own screen protectors to make sure it goes on perfectly lined up and no bubbles!

Now as for scratches on the screen protector itself....yep that bugs me too! In fact the one I had on my 5C was slightly scuffed so I removed it last week. I got so used to my screen without one now that idt I'll be putting one back on any time soon!.

Honestly I use either my OB defender(built in screen protector) or my black (had white but swapped the color) Twelve South surface pad, so I don't worry about the screen too much anymore.

I've always used lifeproof cases so if there happened to be one, and got bad enough, lifeproof would replace them for free, in the meantime for my 6+ I'm rocking a spigen tough armor and zagg hdx, was gonna go zagg glass, but I thought it was pointless to go that much protection just to remove it for a waterproof case lol

No and I'm not gonna lie I've never applied a screen protector on my baby before. Don't think the wife would allow it
