OK. For those of you that wonder, "should I use a protector, or not. I do, and for the first time Ive ever dropped my phone, it saved the screen. I had my iPhone 4s on the arm rest of my recliner listening to a podcast. I moved my arm to get something and barely bumped it. It fell between the couch and the recliner on a carpeted floor. I didn't even hear it it fell so lightly. When I retrieved it, my heart sank. This big crack, gash/scratch on the screen. I peeled the protector.....whola! SCREEN SAVED!!! It looks much worse on the phone than on the computer desk. It actually almost gashed all the way through. It's deep! It would have shattered the screen It hit the floor and rolled over against the sharp steel bracket under the recliner. I didnt even know that was under there. I never ever drop phones. But **** happens and these much debated protectors saved my phone. Also, it's the cheap $15 3pack from Verizon. Other than the finger prints, you can't even tell when it's on. The phone screen with its coating is much better, but I'll suffer the prints to save the screen. Guys, ladies......use protectors. It's not worth the risk LOL!
