    Do you use "Screen protection" to protect passport screen?
    Passport screen needs any protection from Scratch?

    Yeah I have a screen protector I got at Zagg that I hate. It's cut too short, my finger hooks when I swipe up and it's lifted and dirty.

    I didn't get it to protect from scratches. I got it for that little extra bit of protection from drops.

    Mine is in a flip case, I've never really worried about it scratching. It seems tough.

    As I don't use a case I have a screen protector to help protect the screen from scratches and if I drop it. Rocking 24-7 with my Passport SE & Semi Retired Z10

    I am just worried about grit or coarse sand. Anyone has the issue about tiny scratches on screen?

    I like to put screen protectors on devices as soon as they are opened, if I'm going to care at all. With the Passport, I messed up and got fingerprints all over my first screen protector on the first day. I too was worried about getting scratches on the screen and ordered another screen protector to show up the very next day. It's been three weeks and I haven't put it on yet.

    Been rolling with a naked Passport thus far and the screen looks pristine. There's oil and grease marks on it everyday, and I wipe the screen with my shirt all the time like I have with phones past. The screen's tough as sh*t. I get gritty-*** fingers from the griptape and falling during skateboard sessions. No micro scratches on the Passport when directly handling after skate sessions. I'm sure I'm rubbing the micro- equivalent of giant boulders against the screen.

    There is no substitute for direct interaction with the glass surface. Screen protectors are great and all, and I'm a big proponent, but they don't do the user experience any justice. I might stick on that screen protector sometime soon, but I won't like it.

    Get the Stilgut leather flip case. It keeps the phone safe and looks classy:

    Same.. no screen protector on my Passport. Just clean it sometimes with a cloth. Screen is pretty much scratch resistent, until a certain degree of course (like poking it hardcore with a knife)

    I put that screen protector on today. Skinomi... pretty good make, very responsive and doesn't look ugly. If you get it, wait the 4-5 hours like they say to do.

    Using my passport for a few weeks and I didn't remove the film came with phone out of the box.
    The reason is because I didn't find a decent aftermarket screen protector film .
    And the tempered glasses I found were not fitting smoothly to the edge of the screen so decided to stick with the stock screen protector film.
    Only problem is there is a small white triangle at the bottom right, but it didn't bother me much.

    Tempered glass on my AT&T Passport. Otherwise naked. I do have cases, but no longer use any of them simply for the fact that Passport is a well-built beast. Mine has slid off of the roof of my car (icy) onto the pavement without incurring any damage more than a negligible scratch on the chasis.

    My friend and I were grilling on his tailgate while looking up mountain bike accessories, and being the energetic impulse that he is he, somehow, knocked my Passport out of my hand (almost seemed on purpose, but I digress...) with a not-so-gentle application of force. Again, device hit the gravely pavement without so much as a scratch as a result.

    There have been more drops since these two incidents, and there were others prior and after. In every single one, I had a tempered glass screen protector working with the already touch-as-nails OEM screen. For me, using a screen protector (and the right case, maybe) compliments the well-engineered, robust build quality typical of most of BlackBerry's devices.

    Great Krypton! This Passport is super!

    My first Passport OG was protected to hilt, with a screen protector and a selection of cases. The SE has nothing - totally naked - and the better for it.

    Me too, NAKED .... to enjoy it in my hands.

    I also tried the original flip and flex cases, but I now use a real leather pouch, and I enjoy my device as I hold it.

    Definitely go naked. The glass has high scratch resistance and a screen protector ultimately spoils the look IMO. It's like putting plastic covers on your furniture a la 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding '. ;-)

    Disagree. The tempered glass protector is insurance. You won't need it until you do. It's like having cash, which is just as good as money.
