Yes, I put one on the minute it came out of the box last July, it has been replaced a few times since.

I have one. It is just the basic one they had at the Verizon store for cheap, but it is holding up well.

I have a PhantomSkinz on mine. Got it within a few days of getting the phone and have replaced it once. I think I got 3, so I have one more to go before it's time to get a new phone

They put one on in the Verizon store and it gave my screen a matted look/feel. Did not want. Pulled that sucka off soon as I got out to my car and it's been naked ever since. No scratches.

Honestly, I think screen protectors take a lot away from the experience. I have no tried one single protector on any phone that I liked. I can understand wanting to protect your investment, but eh... short of dropping onto concrete or throwing your keys at it, it's not gonna get too messed up (or am I the only one who babies my phone?).

The only reason I keep a protector on it is I carry my phone in my pocket with my keys. My boss has an X and it has light scratches on the screen from this. They are only visible at an angle, but still there.

Can I ask why you have to carry your keys and your phone in the same pocket? That makes me cringe. :[

If I have my wallet I carry that on one side and the keys/phone on the other. Im a front pocket wallet carrier. It just balances out that way better. If I didn't do that I wouldn't be so worried.

Ah, I see. I'm a back pocket kinda guy with my wallet.

That being said... I think if I WAS front pocket kinda guy, I'd bite the bullet rather than put my keys in with my phone.

Yeah, I rock one. Not only am I anal about scratches, but I didn't like the way the screen felt on my refurb without one.

Totally anal about scratches and smudges, I won't lie. Ultra Clear is so damn clear, though, it's almost like being naked. I can barely tell that it's there.

I use Boxwave. You can go to www.boxwave.com and get their "ClearTouch Crystal" version. The cost was $12.95

I was running a WM Imagio and actually used the Boxwave screen protector for a year, then moved it from that phone onto my DX. I ordered a new one but haven't put it on yet because the initial protector fits and works well.

My brother had a piece of garbage protector from Verizon, and he was convinced that my Boxwave protector was significantly superior.

I do, but I am not really anal about scratches.

But IMO spending 5 bucks for 5 on ebay was an awesome purchase to have a virgin screen. I just got the regular cheap screen protectors and they work great. They are completely clear and IMO way easier to swipe across then the glass screen.

DONT GET ANTI GLARE. Just get a cheap clear one and you will be really happy.

I have went through 2 in a year LOL.

I don't use a screen protector. I keep my X in my front pocket by itself. So far no scratches. Of course as soon as I post this I will probably get one.

I ust the invisibleshield and love it. From my last phone I knew I would really need one. This was put on perfect by the folks at Best Buy and I really can not tell it is even on the phone. Well worth the price.

I use a Zagg screen protector, and then the belt holster for work, and then I have the Crystal Slip for my everyday needs.

I like to protect my phone, I'm a klutz.

I think I will try a quality clear protector as the smudges are a little distracting.

poll choices suck, i have one on but am not anal about scratches. if i were, id have replaced the protector at least 3 times by now. its pretty beat up, but i can still see well. since i work in industrial atmosphere, i make sure my stuff is covered for those unforeseen moments that usually happen. my SiL has an X also, just got it a month ago and has little scratches all over the glass already.

no screen protector, no scratches, keep in my front pocket by itself maybe with headphones every now and then. i had it in a vertex case until it had an unfortunate mishap while walking my dogs and now it smells, use your imagination. been running completely nekkid for now only because the vertex smells and it made the phone bulky.

on a side note anyone use a TPU case and how are they compared to other types?

No screen protector and no scratches what so ever. I thought the screen was gorilla glass...right?

IMO, the screen looks much better without one.

You say Droid 2, that is a Droid X, no?

Did you replace the screen yourself? Was it hard?

That's definitely a D2. DX digitizer would have not button overlay and no opening for the speaker at the top

In reference to screen protector or not...I carry mine naked in my pocket by itself. Screen looks just like new. I am overly careful with my phone though. My wife gets a kick out of making me think our 9 month old has thrown it off the counter and such
