I don't have a screen protector on my AW3 and have accidentally bumped and slammed it against walls and various objects numerous times. I can not find any discernible scratches on the screen. I have thought about going caseless on my iPhone 7+ numerous times but each time I was ready to do so I dropped it. I figured it was my subconscious or the universe telling me that it would not be a wise decision. If Apple releases a SE successor I'm going to buy it and go caseless...damn the risks.
