    I Have tried Zagg glossy HD and the anti glare. I'm thinking should I just go without one? How are you all keeping your screen?

    I don't have one on mine. Not going to this time around. Although, my bezel has suffered some chips.

    I use a case which covers the bezel. Debating keeping a protector on screen

    Screen protector and Griffin Reveal bumper/back case.

    I can understand people not wanting to use a case, but can't understand why not to use a screen protector.

    That's the clear hard back with white or black sides right? I had that too n within a week back was showing so many scratches.

    ----------

    They are indeed good I don't know I'm indecisive though. First I had anti glare n felt it hid the beauty of the screen. Now I put the HD but jeez it shows smudges easily.

    I just have a bumper and a front/back cheap ebay screen protector on mine. I want it as slim as possible while offering somewhat protection.

    Does the screen protector feel weird on back cause the two different materials? What kind of bumper? I would love a bumper but I hate apples cause the plastic rips off

    I plan on using screen protectors when my iPhone 5 shows up. I got some front and back ones on eBay for $3.99 but they're the wet applicator ones :eek:

    Yep that's it. Black one on my white phone.

    I want to get a decent black bumper and a rear protector film, but can't find the film in the UK.

    I stopped using screen protectors a long time ago. They always reduced screen quality, bubbled and scratched easily.

    Why go through the phones life not enjoying the screen. To each its own.

    I used to, but not anymore. I realised the screen is much better looking and responsive without it.

    Plus it has gorilla glass.:D

    Hmmmm ..... Gorilla glass is scratch resistant, not scratch proof.

    I've never used one and I"m on my 4th model of iPhone. I've found the screens are pretty scratch resistant if you're not crazy with the phone.

    I'm using an SGP ultra crystal on the 5. I went bare on my 4 and it ended up with minor scratches on the screen, I decided I didn't want that on the 5.

    I'm using the Zagg HD. I like it. I can't see the smudges when the screen in on and they are easily wiped off.

    Ive been using the Zagg HD. Works great and has none of that orange peel/rubbery feel to it. I also have a Belkin Clear Back case.

    Nope. I haven't tried any in the past few years but I hated every single one I got for the original iPhone. Plus they are a pain to put on.

    I'm using zagg IS maximum. Others don't like the rubbery feel, I'm all for it, so the phone won't slip out of my hands as easily.

    I haven't used a screen cover since my iPhone 4s. I don't put my keys or coins in my phone pocket.

    I like Zagg's rubbery feel too. Feels really resistant.

    I always use screen protectors front and back since being unboxed.

    Yes they do get scratched/scuffed but i would rather that than my screen get it!

    Plus I want to ensure maximum value when I come to selling it when the time comes. And no, having them on does not detract from the usability of it for me...
