Default Tempered glass screen protector after light scratches

Is there really any point in me getting a screen protector after I have light scratches? They don't effect visibility or anything I just don't want to get a screen protector and then have bubbles because of it. Any suggestions would be great.

Well, spider webs and bubbles can't be avoided when you use screen protectors! You could use your nails to get rid of them but they are going show up every now and then depending on the usage.
The only time the screen would get scratched is when it's in your pocket or obviously if you put the device upside down constantly...

I would suggest using a pouch or a flip cover.. it would take care of the pocket part... however, if you drop the device down, the chances of screen shatter goes high whether your protected or not

On a plastic screen protector, the bubbles are caused by scratches and / or dust protruding from the screen and bending the protector away from the screen. Surely this isn't nearly as possible with Glass?

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

Ok I'll give it a shot. I have had one on my past 3 devices and just wanted to make sure I wasn't wasting money.

I can't guarantee that. I posed my post as a question
