I used to use a screen protector. it got scratched up so I removed hoping to get another one soon. everywhere I went they had them for the 3g but not the 1st gen. so I went without one and still no scratches. I like how the screen looks without the protector.
haven't heard much about the coating. I wonder what the science is behind it. is it that when you touch the phone the oils are repelled or cannot be transferred over?
sounds kinda cool. question is...can the coating be scratched?
I don't use a screen protector either. Waste of money IMO. This glass doesn't scratch even if you scrape a key across it. I'm very interested to see how good this oil-resistant coating is actually gonna be.
No screen protector either. I used the one I just got from iSkin that was supposed to come with my Solo case for a day. I like it naked. Still looks perfect, and my shirt or pants do fine keeping it clean.
