Default Do screen protectors mess with this phone?

The subject says it all.

I use reflective (mirror) screen protectors on my devices. In general, they darken the screen, which is expected. In terms of interference with touch sensitivity, I haven't noticed a difference.

The digitiser on the S4 seems very sensitive so screen protectors should not have any impact there but even if you get it on with no dust or bubbles (something very few people seem to be capable of), it will never feel as good as the naked screen.

Get one if you cannot be careful but I stopped using them years ago because I hate the way they look and feel.

I have the Zagg Invisible Shield for mine, and it doesn't inhibit the screen at all.
Touch still works, and the phone looks great, and I love that it is guaranteed for the life of my phone.
I am one of those people that won't even use a new phone until I get a screen protector, and case.

I'm the same, although I rock cheap ebay screen protectors ever since having a Zagg IS on my iPhone 4 back in the day and hated it and its orange peel effect !

Doesn't effect clarity, have great coverage at all and they are a dime a dozen:

Got one tiny piece of dust on it, tried to clean it off but epically failed at it.

Crap. I ruined the screen protector.

I have the Spigen Glas.t protector that is made of glass and it does not feel like you have a screen protector on, so I beg to differ with the comment about that a screen protector will never feel as good as the naked screen. With this particular one, I don't even notice I have one on. It's a hard glass surface.
