Default [Q] Does the phone need a screen protector?

I'm going to upgrade to this phone from my Galaxy S3 which never really needed a screen protector. Does the z2 need one or is the glass scratch proof like gorilla glass?

Thanks,

Ash

The Z2 use3s Dragontail glass which is very strong, but slightly less scratch resistent than Gorilla glass,
However I think it's personal preference as to whether you use a screen protector or not..

I personally always use a screen protector just in case & have never had any problems doing so...

It came with one so I put it on there and its actually pretty ok.

Never had one on any of my phones before but this one has a nice matte finish to it. As the whole front it glass is worth it imo

Does the z2 have a shatter proof film? If so they scratch very easily and would need a protector but as pointed out since implementing spf's sony has been giving protectors in the box's of most handsets.

I'm going to use this liquid screen protection on my Z2 once I receive it. Currently using it on my PS Vita and works great!

The glass of Z1 is scratch proof. But there will be some scratches after long time using.
So if you can't bear any tiny scratches , you'd better use a screen protector.
