Do you use a screen protector with gorilla glass

I used to use a screen protector. But for the last year or so I haven't. I'm just carefull with my phone and it gets its own pocket.

 

So far so go. My evo 4g does have one small scratch on it. maybe a quarter of an inch long on the very edge. So it doesn't bother me.

I had one small scratch on my E4GT too and never had a screen protector on it.

I don't use screen protectors because I just don't like how it feels when my finger rubs against it, I would rather feel the smooth glass than anything else. On a different note though gorilla glass may be tougher than average but its all marketing as far as I am concerned. Let any kind of sand or silica get in contact with that glass and thats it, its gonna get scratched and I don't care what kind of gorilla glass you got. Sand/silica can be anywhere and it will scratch your screen.

I don't use a screen protector on my E4GT. But I do have a great Ballistic case with raised edges that help protect my screen.

For me, I just have to remember not to throw my keys and my E4GT in the same pocket. Keys are the only thing that ever threatens my device screens and causes the scratches.

I usually keep my Evo Shift in it's own pocket but still keep a screen protector because I still scratch the screen no matter how careful I am.

 

I thought I was being careful with my E4GT but sure enough a small scratch appeared one day. I have a screen protector on order for my galaxy nexus, no way I'm letting that get scratched. I had a bad invisible shield on my Hero that kind of turned me off from the screen protectors for a while, that's why I went without on the E4GT. It was really bad orange peel and had a rainbow effect. It really obscured the screen and it was amazing when I took it off to sell it. I have read that SGP makes really nice products so I am trying theirs out.

Always use a screen protector. I'm one of those types if I didn't have one then I would get a scratch. Never tried bodyguardz, but I've been satisfied with ZAGG.

 

It`s pretty much the same thing.

same material

 

If I was smart when I bought the bodyguards-

I could`ve bought the material in bulk from Ebay

and got 5 times as much for less than half the money!

 

They use this same material on cars!

They call it the "Clear bra" for the protection of the paint

on the front end.

 

Same stuff here :

You can use this and cut to fit tablets also !

 

I just couldn`t wait and bought the bodyguardz

I can get the material for free, plus anti-grafitti film for real scratch resistance if I wanted it. I have connections in the window film industry. :D

^^ Thatd be kool

 

In a way. It's pretty pricey. My friends brother doesn't sell much for cars, but at least the material has a lifetime warranty, lol. Anti-Grafitti film is thick enough it can really take a severe beating and still protect the glass. It gets put on commercial buildings all the time.

I wonder when we will see the anti grafitti film sold as screen protection? Might already be sold...

Then my EVO 4G must not have Gorilla glass.

The EVO 4G used gorilla glass. Check it out: http://www.corninggo...ts-with-gorilla

Most HTC, Motorolas and a few Samsungs use Gorilla Glass. It's not indestructible, however. Sand crystals, emory, and a few other materials can scratch it, and if it lands just right, it will break. All phones use some form of chemically hardened glass these days, but if it uses Corning Gorilla Glass, it's listed on the website.

 

My MAXX has Gorilla Glass and I don't use a screen protector or a case at all. I'm tempted to change that not for protection but because the phone is too thin!

My last two Sprint phones (Photon, and EVO) had gorilla glass and yet I did managed to get a tiny scratch on each one. I had protective skin on them but i never liked the feeling using my finger on them, so I took them off and must have placed my keys in the same pocket (or coins), thus the scratches. With the Galaxy Note, I have the cover that replaces the back and it keeps the display from contact on items that may scratch it. I could place protective film on it but I hate the feel and with the stylus, may not work as well.

My friend has a lifeforce cover on his iPhone 4S and when he uses the stylus for people to sign when paying with their credit cards, it still works great. And that is a plastic cover on the iPhone.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
