    I bought the original iPad Mini last year, and loved it. With my iPhone and previous iPad 3rd Gen, I never use screen protectors for the glass screen, because i found them to be completely scratch resistant.

    However, with the 1st gen iPad Mini, I noticed (and read about on these forums) that my screen developed small minor scratches. They don't interrupt my usage of the device, but can be seen at certain angles with the screen turned off.

    For those of you with the retina iPad Mini's, have you noticed any of those minor scratches on your screen? I'm trying to decide whether or not I should install a screen protector, as I don't like to use them unless I have to.

    I have a screen protector so I don't have any. If you think the rMini is developing scratches then I'd get a screen protector on it ASAP and not take a chance.

    I've never had any scratched on my Retina Mini or the original Mini.

    I do have a smart cover on my Retina Mini now.
