had a generic screen protector..
lots of scratches on it and a lot of dust on both top and bottom of screen

after reading this thread and seeing all the comment about it not scratching easily

i decided to rip mine off when no one was looking

WOW.. never seen the screen without it.. looks amazing and so far so good

and the oleophobic coating is amazing as well... no rainbow smears when swiping

will run like this for a week and i'l see how it goes

so far so good


didn't even last a day

found out my oleophobic coating is inconsistent.. no coating at the bottom half.. really annoyed
also i managed to get a micro scratch on my screen =[
Ordered a anti-glare screen protector now :P

Tried to apply invisible shield 3 times by myself. Failed horribly every time and finally gave up!

Then I was at this mall that had a guy selling and applying IS, so I let him do it and now you can hardly see the shield at all. Awesome stuff.

I don't use a screen protector. My nexus s is completely naked. >.<

I have a few scratches here & there, but I don't mind. Things aren't meant to be perfect.

I'm not using any screen protector, about 2 weeks ago, I've found one scratch , after 5 months of using.
I hate any types of cases and screen protectors.
Btw i putted carbon fiber on the back cover, cuz this little bast... was so slippery.
Next time I'll buy phone made from decent materials ...

I rocked mine without the case today. It feels awesome. Lol. I have an issue with sweaty palms though. I'm sure the phone could handle a fall though. Hey. Just be lucky it isn't glass like an iPhone . Saw a drop test video and it made me cry. Lol.
