I got the SGP Nano but messed it up. So many dust underneath from trying to wipe them off. I knew I shouldn't of wiped off the sticky side. Lesson learned and ordered a new one. This time I'm going to a TMO store to ask a CS to do it for me.

I used to a long time ago but now I think it takes away from the phone. The g3 feels good in my hand and I don't get the feeling like I may lose my grip like I did with my LG g pro.

Try using a wet-application protector like Skinomi or Zagg. You have to wait 12 hours for them to dry, but dust particles get caught in the liquid and get squeegeed out.

I wouldn't say that the G3 screen is any more fragile than other phones. I had the same thing happen with my first S4. Had it less than a week, then it fell out of my back pocket from a foot off the ground and the screen completely shattered. I'm starting to think that manufacturers have simply moved away from trying to provide good drop resistance. The last few iterations of the iPhone, the Galaxy line since the S3, the Nexus 4, etc. None of them can hold up to a drop from any height well, if the device lands on the screen or side. Whereas my old HTC Eris and Droid Bionic stood up to drops and impacts like champs.

I seem to think that manufacturers are giving in to the wants of consumers who desire thinner and lighter phones. Thinner components I would assume makes them less durable. To get the phone to be lighter than previously phones probably has thinner screen? Just my guess.

I just use a Dry Zagg screen protector and the bubbles went away after a little bit of playing with it and about 15 hours, feels a little bit you know, sticky, because it's a screen protector and not glass, but I'm happy with it
