    It depends how you use your phone.
    If you "baby" it you should be more than fine.
    On my mi9 i have removed for the past year or more. I only have one or two very fine scratches and those are from some drops :)
    So yeah, on general use and being a bit careful ( using a case that would prevent the screen to make contact to the surface) you should be perfectly fine.
    I personally have the one that came with the phone still on and will remove it when it gets worn out.

    Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra
    Mi 11 series all have similar screen. Considering early release of mi 11, it shouldn't be a big issue. I received a glass protector in 10 days from China.
    Thanks for this tip. I did a quick look up on GSM arena. Screens seem to be identical size and shape. I went ahead and ordered two packs of protectors from Amazon. They'll be here Sunday.


    My original protector got caught on the edge of a dog cage in the most unfortunate scenario ever. My phone was okay but the screen protector had a huge gash in it.

    I've gone with no protector for about a week. I've collected one tiny scratch that can only be seen with the screen off and the light hitting it just the right way. I've babied this thing so I'm not sure how it happened. Either way Gorilla glass victus hasn't impressed me all that much.

    Curved screens are a flawed design imo
    This is what I would classify as a highly breakable device
    Between the weight of it and the slab of glass on the back and the wrap around screen your nearly guaranteed a breakage no matter what side it lands on.....

    Gorilla glass Victus is junk compared to whatever is on the iPhone 12 pro

    In every drop test I've watched the android phone with Victus smashed and the iPhone survived.... although the iPhone has the benefit of being flat

      oleophobic coating on this screen protector is iiiiinsane ! I surprised that no one said that yet. But I hate sharp edges on it.... Gestures and that no good together
