    Just wanted to mention I neglected to purchase a screen protector prior to receiving my X yesterday, but it occurred to me that the factory wrap if never peeled off will protect the phone. I already had a nice case I ordered last week(iPhone X Case, YOUMAKER Heavy Duty Protection Kickstand Shockproof Clip Holster Case Cover for All New Apple iPhone 10 (2017 Edition) 5.8 inch WITHOUT Built-in Screen Protector - Black/Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074X7Z6YX?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf) so all I had to do is slip the phone in the case with the factory wrap still on it. I can even hear the speaker through it but am considering gently poking some holes there with a pin tip. Maybe I don’t need the glass protector I ordered?

    The phone isn't meant to be used with the wrapping on it. You are asking for trouble. Get a screen protector.

    Yeah it’s just a short term solution til the glass protector shows up from Amazon. Seriously wish I had a clean room to install these things though. I actually left the factory wrap on my iPhone 3G way back when. It lasted about 2 months before it started peeling off from the corners touching stuff
