    My Xperia S came supplied with a screen protector, and I've made a right royal hash up of applying it - bubbles and dust specks galore.:eek:

    I gather that the phone does not have Gorilla Glass, but does have some otehr kind of reinforced glass. Do others have any knowledge about how effective this is, and whether a protector is advisable?

    wow i just had a look, never even noticed that, they could have put that there was one already on the phone rather than making it look like it didnt have one at all and supplying one, now i have wasted the one out the box.... lol

    one of the great things about sony xperia is that, unlike other phones, the screen protector comes pre-fitted at the factory, where they can get it right first time, no bubbles, no dog hairs, no specks of dust....

    if you ever need to remove it and get it changed though, i'd recommend going to carphone warehouse and getting them to profssionally fit one for you. it costs a lot more to buy their screen protectors and get it fitted, but once it's done they cover you for the life of the phone so if it ever needs replacing again, just take your phone in and it's sorted while you wait. no bubbles or anything, brilliant service on my dad's ipad.

    for now though i'm happy with the pre-fitted screen protector (even though it does seem to be a bit of a dust magnet :p)
