    I just shed a tear.

    those are two things I hate the most, invisible shields and hard cases.

    Not really.

    Starts collecting lint very quickly then the corners start peeling off.

    I like the SGP front and back glass covers, the metal is exposed.

    It DOES affect the screen quality and touch experience. Go with PowerSupport. It's expensive but well worth the money. It's the best screen protector ever!

    Nope, have had my 4 since launch without a single tiny scratch anywhere, completely unprotected other than a Bumper.

    Out of all 5 of my iPhones, I never had a scratch on the front side of the iPhone. IMO it's better to focus on the back

    The invisible shield is great but if you plan to put on a case then you will have to take the shield out since it doesn't go to well with hard cases like stated above.

    Another issue is that it collects lint an dirt on the edges.
    In the end it's up to you, the invisible shield is great for people who prefer to have their iPhone caseless

    same.

    I know this is not the same for everyone, but I have dropped my iPhone 4 on concrete, tile, wood floors, in the bleachers during a football game last week, on asphalt while on a bike ride (fell out of my pocket) etc etc..., and so far not a scratch.

    None of my iPhone's have ever had a case.

    This is the worst damage my iPhone 4 has.

    Don't take others' personal experiences to mean that all naked iPhone 4s/4Ss dropped on concrete, wood, etc. won't experience damage. If you feel like a case is necessary, go for it.

    And Gmail will work with the Mail app. You can set it up standard (there is a Gmail account option) or set it up as an Exchange account.

    Yea I'd get at least a bumper... The beauty of it is that, with a case, you can always just take it off if you want to admire the design of the iPhone 4/4s. haha I've learned my lesson, I dropped a naked iPhone 4 once and it shattered the front. I was in disbelief, but I think a bumper might have saved it from much of the impact.

    As for screen protectors, I've never really advocated them. I just don't like the feel, nor do I like applying anything like that to a touch-based screen like the iPhone's. Maybe just protect the back, especially since the front glass is pretty good against scratches. As for falls, I don't think a screen protector would do much of anything, so that's where the case/bumper comes in.

    That angled shot makes the phone look really good.
