Take your keys and press and pull over your gorilla glass.
It can be scratched.

Screen protectors do have there use but for the best protection you can't go wrong with tempered glass. I had just replaced my G3s screen when boom it cracked again from a blow.( Inside a Otterbox Defender) Tempered glass took the blow like a champ. Now I run tempered glass on everything I use.

I've read through this whole thread and I feel compelled to straighten a few things out.

Everyone is jumping in here with anecdotal evidence from a sample size of 1-5 phones. I have worked as a computer and phone technician for the past 4 years.

In this time I have serviced (without exaggeration) over 10,000 iPhones.

Here's what I know to be factual.

I have seen Gorilla Glass scratched on the greater majority of devices not protected by a film of some sort.
I have never seen Gorilla Glass scratched where a film of some sort has been applied.
My own iPhone 6s Plus has a scratched display from leaving it in my pocket with coins and keys.

I have seen displays saved by tempered glass screen protectors.
I have seen displays that have not been saved by tempered glass screen protectors.

Not just one example but hundreds, if not thousands.

Conclusion: Everything you add to protect your display helps on some level but NOTHING IS PERFECT.

Also, the guys at the AT&T store did mine when I bought my Galaxy s5 almost 2 years ago and they didn't use a machine and it came out perfect, no bubbles or dust, it's even still on the phone.
Had my iphone 4s for about 4 (maybe 5) years now no screen protector and no real scratches at all. And even if there were some minor scratches just crank up the brightness and you won't see them until you turn of the screen. It really is that simple tongue.gif

The plastic screens you saw a long time ago on the first gen touch phones like the Ipaq were the ones prone to scratching nowadays that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

I don't use screen protectors and the reason is very simple (for me of course)
Screen protector is to protect your screen from scratches because looking your screen scratched is very annoying. So, the result of using screen protector was that protector is scratched and I look my display through scratches and it's annoying. Few weeks and protector is ready for replacement. Mate protectors are better scratch resistant but display of the phone looks pixeled and the point of DPI is missed. Now I use my phone without any protection and I am very satisfied. I am not to careful, only not put my phone with keys or coins and everything is perfect. No scratches, no annoying screen replacement, no more money for protectors, and my phone looks better.

I think everyone just needs to take a lesson from the Droid Turbo 2.

No, no iPhone has had a Sapphire screen. Only Sapphire camera lens.

I'm in the same field as you, 100% agree. Have an iPhone 6S Plus myself and found scratches on it just from keys/coins. I have an InvisibleSHIELD HDX on there now. I see most hate for screen protectors coming from people who put the cheap 1 cent protectors on there.
