    As soon as I got my storm in January, I slapped a screen protector on it. I just got a replacement storm and it doesn't have anything on it, and I've noticed it's a LOT easier to use. On my screen protected storm, I would have to use only certain parts of my thumb or other fingers to touch the screen and have the screen respond, but I find that without a screen protector, everything just works so much better. I'm starting to wonder if I want to put another screen protector back on it >.<

    I noticed the same thing but p thought that it was because I had a mirror protector on my mine. So I ditched the protector and everything has been great.

    I think the screen stays cleaner ...the glass does not
    Smudge as much as the plastic screen protector
    Does.

    Really? Do you put it your pocket? Or where? Do you have anything else in your pocket with phone? Do you wipe the screen down like all the time?

    I have just never thought about this before. I have always had a screen protector on. This is very interesting though... I do need a new protector so I think I might give this a try.

    Thanks

    I am deathly afraid of going without a case on my storm, even thinking about it makes me nervous ( I know rather dramatic). I have taken my protector off once and it was beautiful I was just to paranoid to leave it that way.

    My screen responsiveness is just fine with a protector on and I wouldn't take a chance with out one. I also work in a high damage/risk area.

    I have my storm for 3 months without any screen protector and its absolutely flawless with no scratches in site anywhere and i use it a lot, carrying it in my pocket with keys sometimes, and still not a glitch, this screen was well thought out before it went to production!

    same thing with my iPhone 3G, no screen protector and no matter what i do other then smashing bricks onto the screen, it just don't scratch under normal use!

    I keep it in a holster. The pocket seems like a terrible place to keep your phone...to me, anyway.

    That almost hurt my feelings. Pocket protectors are a great place to keep your pencils. It keeps them nice and sharp in case you ever need to stab a smartypants.

    The storm screen is designed not to scratch like the iphone. There was a video when the phone first came out where a guy took keys and a hunting knife to the screen and it didn't scratch. Just search youtube and there are a ton of videos now.

    Well, I never thought I would do this but for the first since I got the Storm it has had a screen protector on it. So far today I have had it off and I like it a whole lot better, the screen is much more responsive.

    I hope I will be fine, My phone is always in my pocket with nothing else that would scratch it. I don't even use my case all the time and the phone doesn't have any scratches on it, Yet...

    It is great until that piece of sand gets slid across the screen. Then you are cussing up a storm(no pun intended). It is hard to scratch these screens but not impossible. I have found the Phantom Skinz material doesn't affect the touch screen like the plastic ones from VZW. And it is easier to keep clean.

    I have had no problem with my screen protector. I have Phantom Skinz on it and it works the same as it did without a screen protector.

    i think the built in protector sucks. I use a zagg.com shield and LOVE it.

    I just use the VZW screen protectors sold in the 3 pack. I've never used my storm without one so I really have no basis for comparison other than I do work outside a lot, and if there's even the slightest hint of moisture in the air, my phone goes straight into a ziploc baggie. I can't tell any difference between having it out in the open vs in a ziploc, so I can't imagine there would be too much difference with having nothing at all. There may be a differenc but I'm sure its marginal at best.

    I had thought naked screen is the best before I got the screen protector what I'm using. This protector is totally smudge free. (I forgot the product name.) So I don't need to clean up the screen anymore because it never let the oily thing left after I use the phone. I know storm's screen is the very hard to be scratched, but I hated smudges on the screen whenever I forgot the clean up.

    Ditto this! Have had mine on for about 3 months now as a replacement for the thin sheet protecting the screen that came with the device. Works just fine - responds to touch with no issues.
