    I have the one from Sprint that just covers the actual screen area. I've seen some that cover everything except the buttons on the bottom and some that cover the entire face.

    My question is, does the screen cover that goes over the buttons interfere with the touch sensitivity at all?

    I use the Zagg InvisiShield that I bought from best buy. It covers the entire face of the phone except for the proximity/light sensor, speaker grill/notification light, and the front facing camera.

    I have had zero problems with the capacitive touch buttons registering my touches. When you first have it installed, it takes a little while to "break in" (it'll feel gummy at first) but now it feels just as good as (if not better than) using the glass.

    It also seems to be smudge-resistant. On many of my older devices with glass screens, I didn't use a screen protector and they got smudged and gooked up really quick (having to clean it several times a day). I have yet to pull out the cleaning cloth and wipe this phone down since getting it Friday afternoon.

    Just a quick review.

    what silicon case do you use with the zagg full body? wondering if the full body adds thickness and makes it not fit in cases..

    I have the Seidio ultimate screen guard and I would never replace it with anything else. Here's why:

    - Protects the ENTIRE screen, including the camera, sensors, and buttons.
    - Static cling application; no liquids or adhesive needed.
    - Completely transparent and smooth. I forget that it's even on the screen. My dad has the ZAGG on his Hero and it looks filmy and is not smooth to the touch. That turned me off of the Invisible Shield.

    Yes, this one gets fingerprints, but a hot breath and a T-shirt will take care of them. I cannot recommend the Seidio enough.

    I bought a Zagg today, but now I'm a little leery about applying it, wondering how much it would hinder the use of the Swype keyboard if it offers resistance to quick finger sliding.

    screen cover? w00t?

    I'd never put a screen cover on this beauty. I would take away from the pizzazz of the screen, plus it would be pointless since this glass screen is basically scratch proof

    I don't have one. I'm using a belt clip, so nothing will have a chance to scratch my precious. And yes, the glass is extremely hard to scratch.

    I just installed my ZAGG invisible shield and it turned out great. The screen is still as responsive as it was naked and it still feels as smooth. If you plan on applying the shield without the shield spray, plan on being disappointed, cuz its going to look like crap. The only hiccup I had was figuring out where all the pieces go for the full body, because it doesn't seem like it was completely outlined for the edges. But all in all I'm satisfied with the way it turned out and looks and it slides into my horizontal case with ease.

    I got the Zagg screen protector from best buy as well and I love it. Like the person said earlier, it does feel a little rubbery at first but that goes away, and it does feel smudge resistant. Picked up the silicone skin from Sprint and love it. Its thick enough to keep the camera lens from touching surfaces you set it on which is what I was most concerned about. That and I've always felt like gel/silicone cases absorb more impact when dropped.

    No protection needed as the screen is glass and tough as hell.

    yep, mine is naked in my pocket, the only worry I have is dropping it while using it, as that would break it, but I hate addinb bulk to stuff by putting cases and screen protectors on them, ruins it while you have it, then when it stops working someday you have a non scratched phone, but it doesnt work, ha ha, I just prefer to use it as is, plus this screen will not scratch

    I have the phantom shield but it has a lot of bubbles and a lot of haze. I hope it clears up and the bubbles go away. I had the ZAGG last time and hated how "sticky" it felt. The phantom doesn't feel that way at all. Hope it clears up. If not, they sent me 2 for the price of one.

    oh yeah, Best Buy offered to install the ZAGG if I bought it from them for $20.99. I said no thanks.

    I have a Clarivue Ultra Clear screen protector on. I can't complain, it does its job. No interference with sensitivity here. Very clear, can barely tell it's on.

    Read enough about the screen's properties to feel confident with no shield...and it's in one of those BB Rocketfish clip cases, the face in design. If Otterbox gets one going I'd go with that...nice designs.

    Using the glare free sceen protector from Sprint. Will probably take it off as it does reduce glare, but takes away from the deliciousness of the awesome screen.

    The finger prints are enough for me to put a protector on there.
