    Buy a good one. Not the flimsy crap you get on ebay, but the harder tempered glass ones from spigen, bodyguardz, iloom, ect...

    Yeah nothing like a $50 deductible in place of a $10 screen protector..... Your economic prowess is amazing!

    First off you probably need to get a better job if your worried about $50. Second the screen is very resistant to scratches, i have had mine since november and the screen is still in perfect condition.

    By the way if you believe $50 is a lot of money then you need to go to college and get a degree so you can leave your minimum wage job.

    I don't use a case on my phone, I do have Applecare+. That being said I do use an SGP GLAS.tR and it saved my phone just yesterday from total destruction.

    I always thought glass screen shields were a bit overkill until yesterdays incident.

    I am very careful with my phone and still somehow it slipped from my hand while taking it out of my pocket and fell screen first onto the edge of a filing cabinet, completely smashing the GLAS.tR screen protector. Had it not been for that screen protector, my phones screen would have surely been shattered. It saved me the $50 to replace my phone and the 40 minute trip to the closest Apple store which is not really convenient. The GLAS.tR is around $30 on Amazon.

    i recommend these, as you get 2 in the pack and they seem to be of better quality than other similar priced ones.

    Get real. Do you know how many Starbucks baristers have their bachelors or masters?

    Power Support USA has the best screen protectors (Crystal Version). They are a little bit more expensive, but they always last me a long time and are very easy to apply.

    I got the HD Zagg Invisibleshield on my iPhone 5 and it's great. Looks good and is holding up wonderfully. The warranty is great because they will replace your screen protector for free if something ever happens to it. If you want a new one just damage it and they will replace it for free!

    The screen does scratch easy, I'd definitely advise using a screen protector.
    Even the ones that are $1 each. Better have the plastic get scratched instead of the glass.

    My problem with the plastic ones is the feel and it doesnt look as clear. Thats why i like the glas.tr screen protector. Problem with those though are that they are glass and break easy plus they are expensive.

    Zagg customer service is great and all but their products are subpar to the max. Went through 4 full body shields before I finally said **** it and went naked anyway. No scratches as a result

    I bought some on ebay for pretty cheap and they seem fine so far.
    I dont think its glass, just plastic but pretty clear.

    Spigen Glas.TR. Probably the best on the market if you are willing to pay the price. Spigen.

    Power Support USA makes an excellent screen protector. They have an HD or an anti glare for the Iphone5. Apple stores carry the Anti glare but not the HD. (HD can be ordered from the company direct)
    Its a great product, totally invisible and clings by static not liquid.
