    Is a screen protective film really necessary to protect the display from scratches or any other damage?

    It's not necessary, just a personal choice essentially.

    I know that, but do you think the screen needs additional protection?

    Again it seems that's a personal choice. Some think it does others think it doesn't. There isn't some strong objective indicator that will really convince everyone one way or another. I personally do not use one, which doesn't really say much one way or another for someone else.

    I personally think it's not necessary. For a case, I'd say yes; but for a screen protector, I'd say no.

    The iPhone 6s has thicker glass to increase durability which has made it heavier and thicker. I wouldn't add more weight to the device.

    Im using the glass protector always... My bf dropped his phone and luckily he had a glass ptorector on it. The protector went totally broken, but the phone itself was ok. Just a tiny "scratch" hairline on the edge of the bottom because of the impact. He didnt have a case to protect corners...

    I've personally never used a screen protector and never had scratches. To each his own.

    From my side, i think screen protector are necessary which has benefits like

    * The screen protector can repel dirt

    * It prevents from UV damage and prevents sticking of fingers

    * It reduces glare and it is antibacterial

    Yes you'll need one.
    After only two month of use my iPhone 6S got 2 deep scratches. And no: there weren't any keys, knifes, coins, or whatever involved.

    After 2 years of use, there are no scratches on my iPhone screen. Never had a screen protector, and it doesn't have a case either.

    I use the Glass protector. The phone keeps falling off my hand while on the road and falling on Asphalt. Saved my display countless times. I would recommend
