Default Enough with thin glass protectors

I am one of those who has removed the useless plastic screen protector, to apply one of those thin glass protectors. Three times... All of them somehow splinter on the long edge. After all 0,2mm may seem thin, but they are enough to create a small step, and if the phone hits a ring, a key or anything sharp, the glass breaks.

My question is: what happens if I use the phone with no protection? Actually all the phones I have had in the past never had an additional protection on the screen.
SONY Xperia Z1 - KK 4.4.4 - 14.4.A.0.108 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - JB 4.1.2 - N8000OXADNE4

I had the same experience, tried one of the glass protectors and it chipped within the first weak. Ordered a 3 pack of plastic protectors for half the price and so far so good.

I ordered a Nillkin Amazin H screen protector and it's been awesome since day one! It's silky smooth and ridiculously durable (I tried scratching it with a steak knife and it did nothing!) but the only drawback is the coating on it as it gets kinda filmy every now and again but a quick buff with a dry washcloth or similar and it's great! I would totally recommend the Nillkin to any Z1 owner!!
I picture everyone on the internet (especially argumentative trolls) as Kip from Napolean Dynamite!!

Nillkin, all the way! Same here, have been using a Nillkin and no problems so far, no chipping, no scratches, it just works nicely.

Any particular place you guys get them from? Took my flip cover off to replace the sim, and man did I miss the thinness! I got a flip to avoid a screen protector but if you guys say nillkin is good, I'll give it a crack just to get the beauty back.

I've ordered a few different cases and the Nillkin Amazing H from this site. Prices are awesome and delivery can take a few weeks though!
