    I'd get both - InvisbleShield to protect the screen, Otterbox (ignoring its screen film) for the rest. Well, that's what I did. (Actually, I bought a screen protector from Skinomi that is similar to the Zagg.)

    I have the OtterBox and have dropped my phone several times, not a scratch on it. Did not like the screen protector that came with OtterBox. I don't use one at all and have not had a problem. My only pet peev is that the proximity sensor does not really work when I pull the phone away from my face, the screen doesn't cut back on so I hit the end key. Not a major issue once you get used to it.

    Ive always used zagg for my gadgets. If you can get it on without issue it will out last your phone.

    ive been walking about with my eris and keys in the same pocket for about 4 months now and have yet to get a scratch on this phone, i think screen protectors are just there for the piece of mind.

    the otterbox impact case is just unreal, have dropped my phone countless times and nothing yet. i feel like i could drop this thing from the top of a building and still be in working order.

    MAN I have the otterbox impact case, hate It, doesn't fit snug and is too big so it covers the sensor and ear piece.

    I personally have the otterbox commuter case, and I absolutely loveee it. doesnt make it that much bigger at all, and adds the support that is needed!

    While I do appreciate the fact that the glass remains unscratched, what I like most about the Skinomi is that oily finger smudges (and face smudges) are easier to wipe off, plus I like the feel of it compared with bare glass.
