To be honest with you all, I'm actually enjoying my phone MORE without the screen protector. So many scary threads make you believe it's a must have item.
It was necessary to wipe the protector at least 20x's a day and I can't count how many times the S-Pen would skip due to some unseen particle on the protector. I've been wiping so much less and even when I'm not, my screen isn't all smudged up.
