I was dead against using even a clear shield over the screen when I got my iPhone 4 Wednesday. I have been babying this thing, wiping it with a microfiber cloth frequently and even resting it on top of one when I put it on a surface. It is alone in my pocket with no keys or even a wallet I was inspecting it today and notice a tiny scratch on the back when brightly lit. I took such good care of it and it still scratched. The back is certainly scratch prone. I bought a wrapsol. No idea if it is the best option but I needed something. Get a screen guard before you get a scratch. This tiny flaw is going to be all I notice from now on.
