Note: I did take a look at other similar threads before posting this... I picked up a Note 3 at Best Buy a week ago. It rocks. The sales rep highly recommended a screen protector despite the fact that the phone uses gorilla glass. I had previously owned a Razr MAXX for over 2 years. It also had gorilla glass -despite lots of abuse like sliding the phone in and out of pockets that also contained car keys, etc., I never got a scratch on the glass. The sale rep claims that the pen will scratch the glass if it is pressed down on it too hard. Despite my skepticism about this claim, I went ahead and purchased the $25 screen protector. Can't recall the brand since he did the install. I've already had to go back and get the screen protector replaced because of bubbles and I need to go back again. My question is: Do I really need to screen protector because of the pen?
