Do your screened-devices need a screen protector?

The answer to that question is a Yes & No.

It depends on material of LCD screen on the device that you are buying. Most devices such as the iPhone screen, and many new Android devices, are made of Corning Wares' GorrillaGlass. This glass does not shatter, and is highly resistant to scratches.  I noticed that Plastic screens and regular glass are VERY easy to scratch. My old iPod nano and my old Samsung Solstice has countless scratches on it's plastic screen, but my HTC Inspire never had any scratches on it's Gorrilla Glass 4.3" LCD. In my real-world tests, smart-phones have never needed screen-protecters, except if you put them in the same pocket as keys (may leave hairline scratches on smartphone).
Unless the phone belongs to a 7-year old or to a construction worker, no smartphone will need a screen protector, but you may need an anti-glare cover. Plastic screen smartphones, very low-end phones, and iPods, probably will be needing a screen protecter, my glasses and Samsung Solstice were in the same BAG with my glasses and manged to scratch each other.

I don't care if my glass is made out of diamonds, I'm still putting a screen protector on it.
