Screen protectors come in all shapes, sizes, and varieties, but we're here to tell you exactly which ones you'll probably want to pay attention to the next time you shop around. Of course, not only do they add some level of protections against some of the nasty...

I actually installed the most basic one on my iphone 4 a year ago
it's still on and it has always protected the screen...and it never bothered me a bit

No one needs how to paste a screenguard to your phone, its very easy like 1,2,3. But this is a good article :)

I don't need a screen protector for my Photon. The gorrila glass is awesome and I even dropped my phone and it slide front face down a few feet. Got a few scrapes but the screen itself is fabulous.

Screen Protector? My family's Samsung phones (2x Captivate, 1x Infuse - all bought on day 1) don't have protectors and every screen is still FLAWLESS. One of those Captivates belongs to a 17-year old! I swear by Gorilla Glass and wouldn't by a phone that doesn't advertise the fact (iPhone).

I've tried several brands, including the expensive ones available at Best Buy. Those may be durable, but your fingers won't slide across the screen because they are rubbery and too grippy. My recommendation is the cheapo ones on ebay. Less than $5 (including shipping) will get you a pack of 3. The first can be the trial run, the second one is the final, and then you have spare if you ever need it. I've now used them on all my phones, including my SGS and SGS2. They're invisible and work great.

I recently got the iVisor AG (anti-glare/fingerprint) for my Skyrocket and I think it's great. Part of it is colored white like the phone (down by touch keys and up by earpiece) to blend in like it's part of the phone. It's washable and removable. This thing does not get one single fingerprint on it and it's the easiest protector I've ever put on. I highly recommend them. The downside is that you only get 1 for $25. They're not just for iPhones, like their site suggests, but it takes more searching to find the one you need. I previously had a Captivate and had a protector the first year and nothing the second year. If you have Gorilla Glass you don't really need one, but you'll get fingerprints like crazy.

Used to use them, but I find even the smallest air bubbles extremely annoying, even if they are on the bezel. Plus, the ones I had didn't leave the touchscreen quite as responsive as it really is. I was worried about leaving it unprotected, but my Thunderbolt screen still looks flawless after about 9 months without one.
