I bought the $20 one from my local AT&T store. I can't remember the name to save my life. It's anti-glare with a matte finish. It makes the screen a little less brilliant. However, I tried some really cheap ultra clear protector for about a day. It was high gloss and looked fantastic until any light source hit it. It also collected finger prints. This one from AT&T never gets a fingerprint, can be washed and reapplied, no bubbles ever. You don't get bubbles b/c the protector really only sticks around the edges. I love it.

Resistant, is not proof.

I've scratched, left fine lines and swirls on gorilla glass while gently cleaning the screen with a clean micro fiber cloth. Although you have to tilt the phones to see them.

I had one gorilla glass phone scratched when I gave it to a girl to look at and she wiped the screen on her shirt. Lucky it was at the top near the ear piece and not in the center. She ended up buying the phone anyways.

To each their own. Personally I prefer the peace of mind, it's heart wrenching to look at your phone and find that scratch one day, then it's too late.
