Well, just realized i got a strach already after exposing my nexus to sunlight, and i'm pretty careful with the screen, so i guess the screen is not that stratch resistanct, i'm definitely getting a screen protector now.

I really like their screen protectors. Very durable and easy to apply without bubbles. Much better than cheaper protectors I have used. I'm not using one now, because my case has one built in, but really liked it on my old gtab2.

I have a Moko (love this case). I take my Nexus with me everywhere and when I am not looking at it, the case is closed. The only way the screen could get scratched is if my fingers turn into diamonds.

First of all, the Nexus 7 does not have "Gorilla Glass"; the glass is made by Corning, but it is never stated anywhere that is same tempered material.

Zagg protectors are a bit overpriced. Go to http://www.xtremeguard.com/ and use code "50OFF" for a much better deal, plus their customer service is outstanding.

Even if the Nexus had Gorilla Glass, it wouldn't take diamond to scratch it. I have the Moko case as well, but be careful with the metal tab on the front as people have reported that it scratches bare screens over time.

I got a top rated screen protector(Spigen ultra crystal) and cannot really use the tablet on cold mornings and at other times due to loss of responsiveness caused by said screen proctor especially when I wipe the screen clean.

And people the screen does scratch I am very careful I did not even want to use my tablet when I got it because the screen protector was coming a bit late. And I manage to scuff it just a tiny bit just TWO weeks before. I still hate it thought and REALLY wanna take it off but its there for a reason. However the scuff is unseen really but I know it's there and it bothers me soooooo.........much *twitch* *twitch*

I only use glass screen protectors now. All my devices have glass versions, it feels better to touch compared to the normal plastic protectors.

Thats odd....cause I find no degree of touch loss with the same protector. I did have some minor issues with or without the SPG protector of some touches not being registered some times.

You might want to try doing what I just did. There is the thread about taking the back of the N7 off and reconnecting the screen ribbon cable. I did this and it made the touches more responsive now. The cable seemed to be plugged in all the way already...but lifting it out of the socket and pushing it back down seems to have made a difference for sure on my unit. Something for you to try anyway, hope it helps.

N7 screen is a dust and fingerprint magnet unlike Apple products I use so I guess a high quality screen protector is a must for protection and clean screen.

I am using Clear-Coat on my iPhone 4 and it is way better than Zagg. I was going to get the same for my N7 LTE but then I decided to sell it and get an iPad Mini with Retina display instead.
