Am I the only one not using a screen protector?

I'm just curious, didn't put one on my iPhone4 or my 4S. I love the feel of the screen without it and I'm careful enough not to need one.

I feel that my finger doesn't slide as well without a cheap screen protector.
I did recently get my first really deep scratch on a screen protector. Was from a pool table (go figure) and I was so glad I had a protector on. Was about inch long. Would have sucked if that was my bare screen. I also go case less so feel I need something on there.

I've never had screen protectors on any of my phones.

When I first bought my 4s, the Best Buy people lured me into a $25 Zagg case. My dark jeans ended up color-transferring onto the screen protector (since I shove my phone into the back pocket all the time) and made the front of my phone look dirty after a month. I peeled it off and threw it away, and haven't had one since.

I was going naked too until a small scratch. Now the screen protector makes the scratch invisible AND protects from future scratches.

that's why I have a case on, what's a screen protector gonna do? I'm very careful with my things, if I scratch the screen it's because I drop it, a screen protector can only do so much.

Bare iPad, iPhone 3, 3GS, 4s and no scratches, I don't know how you would scratch the glass.

No screen protector here, either. I used one on my 3GS a couple years ago after I scratched the glass with some sand that was on my shirt when I was at the lake, but I took it off (the screen protector, not the shirt) after a couple months because I couldn't handle anything covering the screen anymore. Haven't used one since.

Never used a Screen Protector and never had a scratch on my 3G, 4 or 4S as of yet. Just love the feeling of a nice naked iPhone screen.

I use SGP Oleophobic which not only goes on easily but also feels and looks much like naked iPhone 4 screen. Recently had phone on armrest of sofa and Labrador put his paw up - wanted to play! One scratched SGP. Would that have scratched the naked screen? Who knows. I've fitted another SGP!

I'll sometimes go without a case, but I always have a screen protector on. It's more habit than anything really.

No screen protector. My 4 year old plays with my phone all the time And it doesn't have any scratches, I think you would have to try to intentionally scratch it to end up with some.

My 4s didn't leave the store without a screen protector. I hadn't even paid for it yet and the rep installed the screen protector. Screen scratches and scuffs make my positively psychotic so I don't take a chance. One minute I'm fine, everything is hunky-dory, and then I notice a screen blemish. Suddenly I'm in the corner of the room, curled up in a fetal position, humming show tunes quietly to myself. Nobody wants that.

Hmm. Fetal position. Screen protectors. I'm not so bad after all.
