I have a ghost armor screen protector and have been wanting to go no SP. Only thing stopping me are the painful pictures I've seen of the oleophobic coat wearing off.

I've had my Nexus One for about a year. I have a couple scratches on my screen even with Gorilla Glass. The scratches are definitely from keys. I also have a few nicks on the body. I went a month with a pouch/case and screen protector but after about a month I realized how you totally lose the design of a phone with cases'. So I think when I get my Nexus S, Im gonna use a pouch and just rock my phone fully NAKED, who cares if you scratch the screen or the body, Its just a phone. In about a year when your going to sell it, its already dated and worth little to nothing, How much is a 6/10 condition Nexus One Vs a 9/10 Nexus One?

Because there are small spots on my screen where the coating is gone (or seems that way anyways). There are others who have experienced this also in the big "oleophobic coating" topic. It can only be seen under light in a certain angle, but it's definitely there. The screen protector negates the effect so I don't see it anymore. Weird, but that's why I use a screen protector.

I don't use a screen protector, had my phone since the week it was launched in the UK and I don't have any scratches on it.

I always think they look rubbish, no matter how neatly they are put on.

No screen protector since day 1 in december, no scratches either despite some bad drops on concrete which have dented the plastic around the screen.

Glass is tough!

I think building up a castle around a phone is "iPhone user style"
