Default Recommended Screen Protector

Just got a new moto x, put it in my empty pocket for 10 minutes and already have a small hairline scratch. Anyone recommend a good screen protector that offers good protection and feels good to use?

Look up realook, they're on ebay and I think amazon. If you put it on properly you can't even tell it's a screen protector unless you study it real hard. Try putting it on in the bathroom after a hot shower, the steam doesn't allow dust to float around and get stuck under the screen protector as easily.

Checked it out, someone said that it covers up the proximity sensor?

"I am a pretty avid Realook customer, you can't beat the quality in my opinion, and I have even evangelised them to my peers.
I have purchased a Realook screen protector for all my screened gadgets. They are very durable, not grippy to the touch like the wet application competetors such as skinomi which leave a wavy ripply finish, and most imnportantly, completely invisible.
Their fit is typically highly precise as well.
However, for the Moto X there is a glaring and disappointing discrepency. Depsite the usual attention to detail from Realook, they have neglected the cut-outs for both the proximity sensor and front-facing camera of the Moto X. This may not affect the camera, but it is a deal breaker for a proximity sensor, rendering it almost inoperable. I was forced to perform my own cut-out before application and the result is less than satisfactory."

It does, which is one of the main reasons I bought it, because the cutout makes it obvious a screen protector is used. I haven't had any issues with it effecting my sensor, however I don't rely on it that heavily so I can't be 100% sure its not effecting it in some way, but it doesn't seem to be.
