Default Who actually uses screen protectors?

Just curious how many people on XDA that have the Captivate and actually use one. (If you do, post the name and what you think)

The Gorilla Glass seems pretty tough to scratch. Anyone have any scratches?

got three of them on ebay for $1.60. I like them... Some day when I take it off to sell it my screen will be PERECT, not "only a few small scratches" and bump the selling price up a few bucks.

$1.60 is a small price to pay just for that little bit of extra insurance... And it is possible to scratch gorilla glass - I did it to my bricked captivate. Thats what happens when you absent mindedly slip your phone into the same pocket your keys are in

Motorola Atrix 4G - Dead
Samsung Captivate - Sold

But why would you sell the Captivate! Never! It's amazing, .

So do you even realize you have a screen protector on? Smooth?

this is the stupidest post ive seen all day. it CAN scratch. you have been sold on a product that works really well to prevent scratches better than most.. but still its not perfect, i have slipped my captivate out of one pocket and into another that had a penny in it and it made one small but long scratch.

a screen protector would have easily prevented this from happening....

I just received 3 screen protectors for $1.57 from ebay today. Just put it on and it's barely noticeable other than a haze while the screen is off.

I got them because I'm afraid scratching my screen. (My screen already has several micro scratches that are only noticeable when light shines on it at odd angles.)

I got the matte body cover from phantomskinz, including a screen protector. I can't tell it's there, and it's really smooth (compared to invisibleSHIELD)

Plus the matte body looks really snazzy

Nice thanks for the info peeps!

I was looking into getting a case through casemate...

And it turns out they give you a screen protector.

I use the ones available at the att stores. I am VERY picky when it comes to these things, this one is crystal clear, and difficult to tell its on there..

After a little practice ( I went through one package just practicing) I am now easily able to get it on without a single bubble or hair in the first try. Best $10 I've spent on a phone accessory.
