I took off my stock screen protector a while ago and installed a tempered glass screen protector since the stock glass has no oleophobic coating and feels a little sticky. Well my screen protector chipped so I removed it and applied a coat of rain x. It feels great! Still slightly more sticky than gorilla glass but much better than the stock glass. I applied some to the back glass too just for protection under my case. The glass is more shiny and attracts fingerprints less. Any fingerprints are wiped off easier. I highly recommend using rain x instead of a screen protector after removing the stock layer. Now I'm pissed that I spent so much on those stupid screen protectors that are hard to apply perfectly and chip/crack after a few months.

I started with the one everyone on here recommends, m-glass. I got some crap under the front glass so I ordered the explosion proof front protector off amazon. The front protector chipped near the microphone after a few months and when I removed my case I noticed the m-glass back had cracked. The glass protectors feel nice but are too expensive and not durable imo.

...okay..... there is not much details to judge if either you handled the product wrong or if its a design fault

Myself I have the mocolo instead http://glass4m.com/collections/sony/...or-sony-xperia

Before and still I have coated my glass with http://gtechniq.com/shop/3s-for-cars...on-screen-kit/

Just put illumishield screen protectors front and back on my Z Ultra, looks good, except for detritus and bubbles underneath.
And I put them over the screen, without taking off the film.
Screen is very responsive, so impressed.

Not sure if you want to be in regular contact with those chemicals: http://goo.gl/yLmN1d
Known eye irritant.
May want to consider something less toxic like http://goo.gl/le5xtW if you want to go down this road.
