Here is a “do it yourself” screen protection solution, from the makers of Flash Flood waterproofing
The application is remarkably simple, three drops, rub it in, wait a few minutes and then buff it off. Repeat that process three times and you have a permanent, scratch-proof protective layer that is as hard as sapphire crystal.
According to Nanostate, the company behind Liquid Sapphire, and maker of the well known Flash Flood waterproofing solution, Liquid Sapphire will not cloud up the display. The solution maintains transparency so you will not notice any change in the appearance of your device’s display.
The neat part about this particular crowd funding campaign is that the goal is ridiculously low, only $500, and you will still get your Liquid Sapphire even in the unlikely event that the funding goal is not reached. Even better is that there are perks available that will not only net you some Liquid Sapphire, but will also give you a bottle of Flash Flood so you can water-proof your device after putting on the scratch protection too.
Perks start at just $25 for a single bottle, up to $289 for service packages. You will get your Liquid Sapphire in October if you hop on board. If you wait, expect retail pricing to start at around $30 for 0.7 ounces. This is sure to appeal to those that like to protect their gadgets, but do not like putting stickers or layers of plastic on them. We have included a bunch of videos below.

They sell this in Hong Kong and many friends and clients have tried this only to find that in less than 1 week, their screens ALL, have scratches on them. Avoid trying this out unless the person selling you this will have guarantee for your device.

I don't trust the scratch test at all, because isn't the gorilla glass on the iPhone already hard enough to resist being scratched by a coin.

Be fair. You can't blame him for just finding their advertisement and doing a full copypasta.
Well, I mean you CAN blame him for that, but someone else gets the blame for writing the blurb.

I haven't seen a phone with the microphone jack on the screen... have you?

Almost every phone today have the microphone pin hole in front usually as a part of the digitizer. I am also worry about this and the handset speaker...

Most phones don't have the microphone pin hole on the digitizer, not even close...one on the top edge for speakerphone calls, one on bottom for normal phone calls

I did not mean in the touch screen per se.... but coincidentially my last 2 phones had the main mic at the bottom of the front panel... (under capacitive buttons)
Anyway my concern is still valid, since I was also talking about the handset speaker and that belongs to the front panel 100 % of the time

i don't use screen guards on a smartphone anymore. it just mess up the responsiveness of the sceen be it ios or android. and newer screens, 2012- beyond uses high tech materials like gorilla glass and dragontrail so i don't really worry
