I've had my touch for over a month and have not used a screen protector. Why? Because the screen is built tough and doesn't scratch.
Yea seriously. The screen is extremely resilient.I have no idea why people use screen protectors.
You're exactly right, and as long as 3rd part manufacturers can convince prospective iPod touch/ phone users that they must protect their screen, they'll keep making a bundle.Yea seriously. The screen is extremely resilient.
People buy them because they don't know any better.
That's because it's a first gen iPod touch. Apple only introduced the tougher screen in it's later models.I got my 1st gen iPt 3 years ago and the screen has some scratches on it. I use it without a screen protector. Makes me doubt if the screen is really scratch proof overtime.
No Apple introduced an oleophobic (oil-resistant) coating on the iPhone 3gs and the 3rd gen iPod touch. But otherwise the glass screens were the same glass as used before.That's because it's a first gen iPod touch. Apple only introduced the tougher screen in it's later models.
How about those times you're eating breakfast and you spill syrup over your MacBooks keyboard? Or coffee?how about those possible times when your eating breakfast and you spill syrup on your screen? or those times when your eating food and some sticky sauce gets on your screen. thats why. and besides my friend just got a ipod touch 3g, and he has a huge sratch on the bottom just a little above the home button to the right.
Before you go out and buy another screen shield, why don you just try one week of nothing on the screen. I guarantee you that unless you're heaps rough with it, it won't get any scratches.i had an power support anti glare on mine for about 1 yr then it got some scratches and it wasn't anti-glare enough anymore due to wear and tear. i am using a glossy one from speck which is okay but scratches real easy. im gonna go buy another power support one when i get the chance.
I don't believe this. Mine scratched to rat **** in only a couple of months. The glass scratches so easily. My iPhone camera died and received a replacement. Since then I have kept a screen protector on it. I replace it every 3 months.Bought one of the first 1gs when they first came out....never used a screen protector...just an occasional wipe with the cloth that came with it. Still as pristine as the day I bought it. In my opinion, not needed at all!
The glass doesn't scratch at all. Under normal usage. I had my 1G iPod touch naked (no case, no screen protector) for over 1 year. It was completely scratch-free.I don't believe this.
