I'm kinda new to this so I got to ask:

Considering the phone has Corning's gorilla glass which should make it quite resistant to scratches (one of the reasons I got my DS), what advantages such screen protectors give you?

This is an honest question, I'm not trying to poke people for protecting their phones even more, it's up to each person individually and their usage, I'm just ignorant of the reasoning and would like to know more..

Best regards,
Daniel

Hey there,
Yes the screen is scratch resistant. However, like most people we don't want to take the risk, and we place a screen protector on to ensure it's protection.

However, this invisible shield also is 100% scratch free. After using it for around 8-9 months, i can say that it is very very good. THere are no scratches at all on the protector. It's still in pristine condition.

(I'll try to get some pictures up soon)

Also, the back of the device is made of aluminum - which can be scratched.The shield protects the back + gives it good grip

Nope, you gotta get then separately.
Back in the days of the HTC Diamond, HTC used to give free quality screen protectors!

Hello everyone!
I just don't understand if the "Maximum protection" version is actually able to cover Desire's sides and corners. There are no side stickers but maybe the back cover ones wrap them well, don't they? I would like to buy one because i'm bored of tick silicone, tpu or composite covers. Sides and corners are very exposed to scratches as well as the screen, i'm in doubt. Thanks.

It covers MORE of the sides, but not all if it. It covers the curved part of the chin (just below the buttons) that's a nnotable difference with the maximum shield.

But still are the edges exposed? Let's suppose putting the device out and in from your jean's pocket many times per day, won't this "rub" damage the paint if not protected? I don't know if invisible shield protects it under this point of view, for this reason I'm asking. Sorry, I know I appear paranoid but I had bad experiences in the past. Thanks again.

Yes they are. I used a pouch for this too, to further protect in my pocket.
I'm like you I want my device to be in the safest at all times

Now I use a leather case.
