    Mine has been naked since day 1 but now i noticed a small fine scratch which is visible when you intently stare at the screen under bright lights. My OCD is killing me now constraining me to put on a screen protector which i hate.

    I remember putting a screen protector on my Note 2 and within an hour I managed to scratch it, which could easily have been my screen. So from then on its coverup!
    I got my screen protector on before I started the Note 3 up lol. All is mark free up to now.

    I have a pretty good case that I have yet to put on my Note 3, I just hate creating a bulky device since it's already such a large device.

    But it will have to go on soon when I start my job :(

    I have a screen protector and case on my phone and have since before it was powered up for the first time. This screen protector was a cheapie from Amazon and so far it's flawless.

    Neo Hybrid Case which is protective yet light and small and a very nice Tempered Glass screen protector thats flawless and looks like a naked phone.

    Love them both and am glad my phone is unscathed.

    I've never had a smart phone without a case or screen protector...with that said I wanted to enjoy a phone w/o 1 so I do not have a case/screen protector on my note 3. No scratches or even a drop so far.

    The screen is clear as glass with my Ghost Armor screen protector in place. Unfortunately while testing out a back cover type case and belt holster on my Note 3 the Note popped out of the holster, skidded along the sidewalk and left several small dings along the lower left edges of the silver frame. No more back only cases for me my friend. No more...

    Since this is my first smart phone, it doesn't seem big at all and that's *with* a UAG case. It's very comfortable in the hand and provides a nice amount of picture size or screens of text to read.

    Very happy bunny.

    Yes unscathed and undropped. It's in a Noreve leather case and has no screen protector on yet (I hope Santa brings me one). It is treated with absolute carefulness. I learnt my lesson after killing an SGSII (dropped down a sewer!) and a Nokia N8 (washed). Add "Rod" to my avatar and you can see why I'm very careful with my devices.

    I love my N3 and don't mind the size, but it really is a bump up from an iPhone 4s. I've had several iPhones before but again, I do like the size.

    Funny thing is I don't mind the size, but nearly everyone I show it to or sees it comments. I was shopping for a Kindle Paperwhite and the guy at staples freaked on it's size compared to the Kindle :D

    Had it since the 1st week of October and I have a thin silicone case and no screen protector and all I have is a tiny scratch on the silver in the bottom corner

    Got my note 3 about 3 weeks ago and totally love it. I bought the Samsung flip case (very thin) so really no protection what so ever and bought a cheap screen protector from Amazon so far so good. The phone looks so beautiful and yes everyone that sees it says OMG that's huge when I take it out of my Pants pocket :)

    Not a mark anywhere on mine, also hasn't been dropped on a hard surface yet either. Spigen Hybrid case and an iSmooth screen protector. I cringe at the thought of the first time I drop it on a hard surface.

    All nude since day one with the exception of my leather pouch case. Mint condition thus far (knocks on wood).

    I like how some people, especially iPhone users, complain about the plastic in Samsung phones - everybody puts a plastic case on it anyway :D

    I got a UAG case and a MediaDevil screen protector since day one as well ...

    Got my phone Monday evening, activated it, and had it encased in an Otterbox Defender within 30 minutes.

    I hand my N3 to others, and they have no idea it is in a case and has a iloome 9H.

    It looks fabulous and my N3 is still in pristine condition underneath.

    I can't imagine having scratches on my screen like the OP does, (and his will only get worse).

    Not protecting the resale value on a $700 device is foolhearty at best. :smokingsomb:

    Mine is all nude too, with the exception of my neo hybrid & Iloome 9H :rolleyes:

    So many nuts, so little time to crack them :D

    Yes... I baby my phone so much. I plan on keeping it for a while so I have a gorilla screen protector and a case.

    Otterbox Defender on mine without any screen protector and I've dropped the phone about 5 times. It's still in perfect condition. No scratches or marks on the screen at all.
