Never used one - hate the feel of plastic instead of glass.

But then again, I don't care a bit about resale value, take good care of my phones, and upgrade my phone every year anyways. If any of those things are different for you, you might want a screen protector.

I always buy spigen glass screen protectors as they always one of the thinnests and specifically for the G3 it was the only option that covered the front of the G3 completely compared to other options

I'm on my second glass protector, first one I dropped on a set of keys from a fair height. Then had the phone knocked out of my hand and it landed badly. So the 5 investment was worth it imho, and applying a new protector was very easy with no bubbles.

I'm currently using the Spigen GLAS.tR Nano slim. It's nice because it doesn't give off the orange-peel effect like found on the Invishield piece and barely noticeable, as a screen protector should be. Although it's extremely thin (0.5mm) it doesn't take much to damage it. In fact, I noticed a hairline crack in mine this morning and will be replacing it soon. The only downside, they're not cheap at $34.99.

I believe the nano slim is actually .23mm. It's incredibly thin for the market.

There might be one day where you have it on the edge of the counter and either you or someone might knock it off by accident. Since you have it in your pocket, there might be a day where you'll pull it out and something bumps into you and it falls out of your hands.

No one can be too careful or prevent anything from happening. Just the way of life :/

I Verizon rep that I know had a tempered glass on his old phone and when he dropped it, the first thing that broke was the tempered glass. The screen on the phone was perfectly fine.

Which holster do you use? I was looking at the PDair version.
