For those who want to keep their screens perfect, definitely buy a protector. All this gorilla glass full-proof talk is hogwash! I ordered a Steinheil Crystal Clear from eBay because I didn't believe it anyway, and my screen has been naked as I await shipment/delivery. Anyways, I looked down today and there's a small frickin' scratch on my screen! I'm very careful with my phone - and haven't dropped it. I keep it in my pocket by itself for most of the day. I have no idea how this happened. I've seen the debates over whether this screen is actually plastic because it bends and conversations over the scratch-proof / scratch-resistant stuff. All I gotta say on that stuff is, if you don't mind scratches and want to go naked on the screen, then that's cool. If you're trying to keep it scratch-less, get a protector. Bottom line. Darn shipping time screwed me! Couldn't even go a week. I guess I'll have to go in and pretend I'm having software issues or something so I can get a replacement.
