As someone who has always used screen protectors I've never had an issue with getting scratches etc on my screen. When I bought the S2, the first thing I did before using the phone was to put on a screen protector that had come free with a case (randomly.. I dont use the case, but the screen protector was great in terms of cutouts) Today I decided to swap the protector as I had a couple of tiny air bubbles though I had to use some new ones I had bought off the net. The cutout for the earpiece was not 100% perfect which was rather annoying so it had to come off... HOWEVER.... as good as the old screen protester was, I noticed that it feels so so much smoother to tough the glass screen rather than through a protector so I have decided from today..... There will be no more screen protectors for me Random post.... But thought I'd share.
