    I have the iPhone 5s and i dont have a screen protection. I dont like them. I have been cleaning my screen with my hand, palm of my hand and sometimes the side of my hand. i refuse to clean it with my shirt or any other kind of fabric.. ive only had this phone for about 2 months now. and i am already seeing little tiny scratches. so is this bad? do u think this is caused by my hand?

    If you have grit on your display, I can imagine this. Try a damp cloth from now on.

    I don't see how your hand can clean the screen. Mine only introduces more smudges.

    Anyways I don't think those micro scratches will affect the operation of your phone or is it likely you'll notice them in use.

    I've never been a fan of screen protectors too. But I was curious to see what's new out there. I saw a couple reviews and decided to go with iLoome Flex. It's pretty cool. A lot of my friends are shocked to find that I have a screen protector on.

    I've also been using iKlear cleaner for about 5yrs.

    I don't why people would spend all that money and not keep their gadget clean.

    I tried going without a screen protector for awhile and when I did I wiped it on my shirt. For a stubborn smudge I'd use a Kleenex, err, facial tissue.
