for a film protector you like Speigen? On an old HTC I used a zagg, and while it protected the screen, it really felt bad on the fingers. The HTC Touch Pro II I had, also had a stylus, and it just didnt slide over the zagg that well. Would a N3 stylus "slide" easily over a film protector? until today I never heard of a tempered glass protector.
For my droid bionic, I never used any protector, and 2+ years its lasted just fine (until I forgot it in my pocket and took a swim). Maybe its the gorilla glass on the bionic. If N3 doesn't have gorilla glass on it.. what does it have? surely with many other Samsung phone using it.. they should right? What type of glass is on the Note 2?
