i LOVE my new 3gs screen..
so easy to clean...

anyone put an anti fingerprint steinheil on their 3gs?
i want to put a protector on to prevent scratching or scuffs but at the same time i don't want to put something on thats going to make the grease or fingerprints show more....

any opinions?
thanks

I like my screen nekkid. The 3GS screen is much easier to clean than the 3G.

I am going without a protector on this one. It is soo easy to clean and I baby it anyway, so I am not too worried about scratches. Had the phone for 10 days or so and the screen is still perfect.

After 359 days with no screen protector, my 3G only has some very faint/minor scratches that you can only see in certain lighting and only when the phone is off. Certainly nothing you can see during usage. I think the phones look best without them.

I agee. I know we paid a lot of money for these phones and should do all we can to take care of them and keep them nice. On the flip side though, we also got them to show off and use the way we want. I have yet to put a case on my 3Gs. I know I will at some point , but right now it looks so good as is that I choose not to case it.
It's one thing to baby your phone and take good care of it, but I am not going to put mine in a vacuum because there might be a risk of a hairline scratch that you have to look hard to see.

^Exactly. That's why I go with a beautiful minimalist case with no screen protector. Some of the cases out there are horrendous.

If and when I decide to get a case, I think it will be one of these. I have 3G cases that will fit of course, but if you have a new phone you need a new case,right?:p

I have always admired those cases they were just a little too glossy. If you get one give us a review please.

Yeah, hoping to see one in person at Apple. Then I can order what I want if they don't carry it. They maybe too glossy. Will give a review in the case section if I go that route.

I Used the steinheil Antifingerprint. Its too thin and really hard to get all the bubbles out. In the end I prefer the antifingerprint sheild that Apple sells in their stores
