screen protector

Phone screen can be scratched
Phone oleophobic coating can degraded and gone after 1 year of usage
Changing phone screen protector cost 1 dollar and you can use your phone screen pristine for years with screen protector
Even with luck and good care your screen without a protector wont look pristine

Cases : protect phone from drop, so you can sell it again in pristine condition when you want to upgrade also even victus glass will crack when you drop it nothing guaranteed

Got to protect the investment. Kind of silly not too. Screen protector and rugged case all the way.

blue.sun, 10 Oct 2021Why putting so much useless waste in the box? I only need phone.You can't use the phone without the junk! They say the junk is removed for the environment and climate, but they never changed the price on the original junk. That only proves that it's for more money, and not the other two things.

blue.sun, 10 Oct 2021Why putting so much useless waste in the box? I only need phone.Do you work for apple? Maybe because we're paying enough for a phone. 500 or more. Might want a screen protector or case because guess what? If it breaks it's not going to be fixed for free. Might want something to charge it as well coz it doesn't rum on fresh air. To hell with the environment. We'll all be dead and gone before that becomes a serious problem. Also no reason these Companies cannot use biodegradable packaging. You do realize that they don't give you that stuff you should expect for free because they want to maximize the profit margin and not because they care about the environment. Your attitude sucks. It's the attitude that gives license to these companies to rip off the customer

Everyone throws the manuals in the bin, cartboard boxes kill trees... etc!

Yay, im the minority who doesn't use any case or screen protectors!
And i will never use one, it just makes it a worse experiece and i take care of my stuff very well.

Wolf in the woods, 10 Oct 2021I said it all along. Phone manufacturers WANT you to break ... moreGlass back was for wireless charging and also feels more premium, seeing how people complained about the S21.
Plastic screen which scratches with your finger nails like the folding smartphones? No thanks.
I don't think glass screen protector on top of a plastic screen would even work.

everyone with a glass protector have a cracked protector or even a cracked screen. also if a person have a case on a phone he isn't careful enough - same as with tesla autopilots - driver is relaxed and doen't pay atention on a road.

bolchert, 10 Oct 2021I like my phones as I like my women: naked. (;Do you like curved phone screens, or curved women? Just wondering.

I love small phones, so adding cases make my them chunkier, i just don't like screen protectors too.. So yes i don't cloth my phone

I put some transparent tape on my screen. It's enough for me.

My iPhone se 2016 has a double case. 1 is the case for the phone and the other is the case for the battery that attaches to the phone case.

I do have a glass screen protector on it and it is pretty neat to have and given the size it still is very compact.

My tab A is in its book cover type with no screen protector and work phone is in a minimal case with card slot.

85% with a case and 70% with screen protector yet no big OEM releases a decent phone that's already protected. Active and rugged phones are rare these days.
