Who Doesn't use a screen protector or case?
Just wondering because I stopped using them with the Captivate. I did get a RealLook when this phone was new but have since dumped it. I have carried the phone in my pocket with coins and even keys at times and nary a scratch. The glass is far better to slide on in its native state.
I never used cases because they made the phone thick and skins only protect against scratches which for a device I may have all of 18 months doesn't matter much. Its a handset not a work of art. LOL One of the features I like best is how thin the handset is and how slick the glass is in it's native state.....
The back case is nearly indestructible and easily replaceable.
So who else doesn't go for the $20 "screen protectors" and $20 cases? The only case I would think would protect a phone in a drop would be a very soft shock absorbing one that doesn't transfer the shck to the device anyway which collects crap and makes it difficult to get out of ones pocket.
As far as resale goes I found I may get $25-$50 less for a phone with wear marks. Less Money that would have been spent on "protective devices anyway...I sold a NEW in the box Captivate for $229 and a used one for $190 with wear...(and am currently looking for a beat up working Captivate for a spare.)
