    Original invisishield hands down. Although a slight orange peel, it won't scratch like cheap ones.

    Don't listen to me. I don't use screen protectors or cases, going back to my Palm TX. ;)

    i got the spigen slim armor pack that came with 3 screen protectors... i use those and love them. they are basic, but don't have a grippy texture to it so they work well. ONLY downside to these is that like most SP's they pick up finger prints

    Oh man thats risky for me. I basically destroyed my Gs3 screen. and i just wanna protect this one as much as possible
    How bad are the smudges on the screen? should be able to just wipe on your shirt and have it be fine right

    Yup ..... seems like I'm constantly doing the shirt wipe thing. :D

    I'm also using the Spigen SP. I have no complaints, they are a good basic "clear" SP. Shortly I should be getting the ones from Tech Armor's joke contest and I will give them a try.

    The zagg has peel, but you can't see it unless the phone is off. And for people not using a screen protector, have fun! You should have seen my S3 after just a couple months. Ruined.

    This is my first tempered glass and I like it WAY better than the likes of Zagg. If for no other reason than because my finger doesn't drag across the screen like it does with the rubbery plastic screen protectors.

All naked, no regrets. Sure, bad things can happen anytime. No regrets if they do. (well, maybe a little) It's a risk I'm willing to take. I'm not going to buy an attractive phone just to hide that attractiveness. :)

    totally agree with your last statement, I will never use a case ever. and never used a screen protector before had a HTC incredible and Gnex before my N5.

    only very few minor cant see unless you look for them scratches, but I decided to try a SP (only $5.00) and actually surprised how I can barely tell it is there and how similar it feels to glass.

    I didn't hide mine. Got zagg and a Diztronic case. The real ugliness will start when you have a scratched screen and the back is all worn down. Or you drop it. You'll learn. I did. Gorilla glass sucks.

    Lay it down. Move it around. It will happen. Should have seen my S3. It looked 5 years old in 6 months.

    My S3 did too. That was the worst finish I've ever seen on a phone. Never had a problem like that with any other phone I've owned, and I never use a case.

    When I first got my HTC EVO 3D it got a ZAGG. I hated the feel, so it went naked. After a year there is one 5mm scratch that you can see when the phone is off. Considering that I work construction, I think that was pretty lucky. Not wanting to hurt my new baby I gave the Spigen a chance and I don

    The only reason i haven't looked into getting an S3 is its build materials.
    Im a self employed builder and use no protection but am careful with my phones,i've never had a scratch worth writing about.
    I like to ride bare back.
