    What's the verdict with the best screen protector. Reading various posts and on Reddit it seems they are all rubbish. Currently using Spigen Rugged Armour case which is great but would like to protect the front

    I think there are degrees of rubbishness - ones with black glass over the bezels that didn't include a cut-out for the light sensor set the gold standard for trash. ;)

    It depends what you want from them, but there's just enough curve on the glass that even ones that are a few mm narrower than the screen end up with slight air gaps at the edges. I've not seen reports of any that are perfect yet - but if you drop it on uneven ground maybe imperfect will still seem acceptable.

    Yep seems that way and I guess maybe early days. My case has the bumper around the front but conscious of keys in the pocket scratching. Not sure how strong the glass is

    I keep phone and keys in different pockets, but the glass ought to stand up to keys. It's bits of sand or quartz/silicate grit you should worry about for scratches.

    Lol, screen protector - When I bought my Pixel 2 the dweeb at the Verizon store put a screen protector on without asking me if I wanted one. I got home and found out the Pixel 2 has Gorilla Glass 5 - No screen protector - peeled that shit off and threw it away. Verizon paid for it.

    Depends what you want, how you will use it, what risks you will take. Gorilla Glass 5 can scratch (mine picked up some very fine scratches within a week or so), and it can crack or shatter. It stands up to abuse better than regular glass, but it's still glass. So it's your call, but the people who do choose to use one have legitimate reasons to do so.

    Best screen protector is the Power Support 3D tempered Glass Film designed for Pixel 2 and Pixel 2xl Its a little expensive but completely covers the screen and goes on pretty easy.
