Because screen touch feels better without a screen protector maybe?...

Had none on my Galaxy Nexus and it was terrible near the end of it's life. My Moto X had none and it was beautiful. None on my G2 for the first week and it seems awesome so far.

The GNex has some other type of tempered glass (DragonTail?). It was softer than Gorilla Glass, and made it more susceptible to scratching but a little bit less prone to smashing. I never use a case or screen protector on any of my phones and the Galaxy Nexus was the only one to ever get scratches that you could see and feel (Everything else has little micro-scratches that can only be seen at specific angles). The GNex was the only phone I've dropped too, and it was on concrete right at the corner too. The screen was fine but the plastic body had to be replaced ($20, good as new).

So yeah, Gorilla Glass is fine without a protector, unless you mistreat your device.

From an iPod Touch 4G to an iPhone 4 to my LG G2 I agree. Never once scratched my screen, even after accidentally putting my keys in the same pocket.

Now, when I used my vibrating plate hand sander, that's a different story. Especially 150 grit. Yikes. HA can you imagine? I'd never do that to my one true love: my LG G2 (don't tell my wife).

no screen protector, no scratches - 9 months. my phone never goes in the same pocket with my keys. i do use a slim case - Tudia Melody. the case has a big enough lip around the edges that i can put the phone face down without the screen making contact with the surface it's resting on.

I used one on my G2 for a while but it got scratches that started driving me crazy but I haven't put one on my new replacement. Hasn't been long yet but looks fine.

Probably will put one back on if I have a spare.
