    Stick-on Screen Protectors ?

    On some previous phones I've bought this stick on transparent screen protector layers that stop the screen from getting scratched. Two reasons I'm thinking it might be a bad idea - firstly it might affect the touch screen functionality, and secondly anything that weakens that awesome OLED screen can't be a good thing.

    Has anyone here used one on the Nexus ? Does it still work well and does the power of that OLED awesomeness still shine through ?

    Another question just came to mind. Is there any special cleaner you can use on the screen that resists fingerprints/smudges ?

    I honestly don't think screen protector is that necessary. These screens are very scratch resistant. On my iphone i didn't use any screen protector for years and there was not a single scratch on it. Same with my N1. Of course I do take very good care of it.
    I'm sure a lot of people will disagree with me on this but that's just me.

    I would also like to know if there is some sort of cleaner that resists smudges if anyone knows.

    I also take good care of my phones so it's good to hear that even after years your iphone screen didn't look beat up.

    Maybe there's a nano-coating that can be applied like they do to cars these days.

    If you go look under accessories, you'll see a number of threads on screen protectors.

    The final word is stay away from anti-glare.

    Otherwise, you can use any of the good brands. The static cling ones (removable, washable) ones seem to be the least noticeable ones.

    I've used Boxwave Crystal Clear on two different Nexus Ones without a problem. Does not affect the touch screen.

    I use one. I was $1.00 bought online along with my case. It's a no name cling-type that can be pulled off. It doesn't hamper touch performance and is very clear, people can't even tell it's on here.

    Hmmm. On the fence on this one. I've watched that video, they do look really good, but only if you get the installation perfect. Super dust free environment, just the right mixture of soapy water, perfect alignment etc etc. I wouldn't want to spend $25 on one unless it was professionally installed too.

    I think I'll leave it for now. Might change my mind later.
