Can't live without screen protectors and my otterbox case.
There is to many dust here where I live, and I need to go to different farms, and work with my cappy....
Three screen protectors are really essential!

It is actually possible to scratch the screen.
My son has had his cappy longer than mine, and he tends to put it in the same pocket with his keys, and over the 14 months or so, there is visible abrasion on one of the corners. It isn't real bad, but it is definitely visible

Paid about $1.50ish on Ebay for 3 and they had fast shipping too. I absolutely have one and I'm glad too. It has a huge nick from a charger and it didn't even touch the screen. Yes it's Gorilla Glass, but it's still not immune to damage

I use zagg. It is a good protector, but I will warn you that cat's teeth will go through it if they want to get after it. Also, a knife will go through it as well. I know this from experience.

I've been rocking my phone naked the past few months. I love it.

I just found this great instruction
for installing screen protector and used it today to replace my screen protector. It was so easy and fast, I can't imagine why I would not want to have a protector.

here's the thread

I used a screen protector for the first year or so that I had my captivate (realook is my favorite), then I was replacing it one day and really liked the feel of the screen without it. So I left it off. Two months later, I was at the beach and swiped the screen - apparently there was a small grain of sand on my finger, so now I have a nice long scratch up the middle of the screen. I put a screen protector back on it, and it seems to camouflage the scratch pretty well...

I use a screen protector because I think it's not scratch free without it.

If I helped you out, feel free to use the THANKS button. Cheers!
