    I finally made my decision. Bought a 256gb iphone xs silver model, with a black apple leather case! Its coming with the delivery guy today!:) Switching back from android to ios.

    When I get the phone the best thing to do is to go to a apple retail store and let them put a screen protectoe on it right?

    :D

    Hopefully you won't regret it :p While you're at it, restore the device to the latest version using iTunes before you actually set it up.

    Some like to use a screen protector and some don’t. I dislike and have never scratched a screen.

    Much depends on you and how careful you are, but accidents can happen.

    Good luck and enjoy your phone.

    I went to the Apple Store and asked for a screenprotector. He put one on for me :)

    well, i dropped my phone when putting it back to the front pocket and the screen cracked - fortunately it was only the glass protector which is now broken and cost me 10 euros - another to replace it... but much less than replacing the screen.

    I dropped my 6+ once. It hit the ground in such a way that the screen cracked while the screen protector remained perfect. The only good I could say about the protector is that at least it protected my fingers until I got the screen replaced.

    Last time I ever put on a screen protector.

    Glad yours saved your screen though.

    Thats why you need an edge to edge 3D screen protector.

    For free???

    Actually they're pretty cheap. You can buy a packageof 3 for $5-10 on ebay. Glass ones do crack occasionally so a pak of 3 comes in handy. Very easy to install.

    Just be prepared that the overall experience is more restricted. But way more polished and the ecosystem of course.

    How come you didn't wait until Sept. for the iPhone 11? Just wondering... I also purchased an XS Max 2 weeks ago. Today is the 14th day. I wasn't sure if I should exchange for an XS. But it's too late now.

    As long as you treat your phone like the sophisticated piece of electronics that is, you don't need a case or screen protector. I've never used either, and in the nearly 12 years iPhones have been out, I've never regretted that decision.

    Is that a glass protector?

    Anyway, it doesnt go to the edges as you can see it took the hit on the place the protector werent covering the screen.

    im only using tempered glass protectors that protect the display fully, from edge-to-edge.

    There are real edge to edge protectors, which are much better and you don't notice them at all. I always put full cover ones.

    This is perfect world scenario stuff & you’ve been very lucky. For most people, mishaps happen, whether at home, work, on holidays etc.

    I take care of my gear more than most people I know, have only dropped my phone a couple of times in nearly 10 years & every glass screen protector I’ve used ends up with micro scratches + some slightly more severe, despite keeping my hands & pockets clean & using only high quality micro fibre cloths to wipe them down every night.

    The film protectors I’ve used in the past are more forgiving as they have a ‘gel’ like surface which repaired itself, but in my recent experience of using decent quality glass protectors, they always end up with scratches. Yes, most of the scratches can only be seen when light hits them at certain angles, but there are always one or two which a little deeper & stand out more.

    I guess it depends on your tolerance to scratches - I personally don’t want any kind (micro even) on the original screen.

    I dropped my XS once but it was enough to crack the screen protector. Luckily the screen was left intact.

    Good move getting a screen protector. Hope you enjoy your new device.

    I always use a glass screen protector. Have broken my glass screen protectors a few times but never the screen. I can fit them myself too so I can just order one amazon next day delivery and fit it myself.

    The xs is the PERFECT size. The max is just to big
