I use a Neoprene Pouch.

It saved my phone's life on a few occasions. Not to mention protecting it from scratching when my car keys and phone are in my pants pocket together.

i used the protection which was applied from the start on my X8 and it had no scratches until i removed it because it was old.
Not it doesn't look good anymore, so for all who don't use protection and want to keep their X8 a while longer use one !
I'm gonna buy new phone soon so i don't care at all about my X8 =P

Warning - display polish
Hi all..

This is a warning!!

Products such as Displex Display Polish (Scratch Remover) will permanently damage your screen if you try them.. Please don't (even just to see what happens).

These acrylic polishes are not made for touchscreen devices.

They will in fact make big scores and scratches appear on your screen just like a scouring pad would do..

Now, back on topic, I use a screen protector. They are great and leave a smooth glossy finish.

You wouldn't know it was there. They are a must-have.

My phone has many marks, i have drop it many times... but it just do not die! The phone hits the floor, the back cover gets of, the battery is jealous and gets off too... but the phone works fine!!!!

I also own a small scratch on my screen because i was so stupid to test if a battery works as a stylus. The stylus worked but the battery lived me a scratch, i still can't understand how that happened... (i am very suspicious about the electromagnetic fields around it, but after a small search i found out a small scratchy thing on the battery)

My advice, keep your phone as it is. Enjoy it, a small mark will not destroy your life. Just b careful with batteries (they play dirty).

typical sony ericsson. my w810i did this too. i hate this silicon thing too. but i have a foil on my x8, but it has many scratchs (my evo 3d doesnt need on cause of gorilla glass;)).

I have heard that screen protectors result into accumulation of moisture between the phone screen and the protective layer. This damages the screen.

Not sure if that is true.
