Can anyone recommend a screen protector for the 1020? All the ones I have bought have been way too small for the screen.
I'm suspicious that it's not possible to fit a screen protector because the screen bevels into the body of the phone at the edges

A tiny bit of sand in your pocket or on your cleaning cloth can scratch your screen easily, get a screen protector.
I have been trying to find a screen protector that fits all the screen, but all the ones i have seen have had at least 3-4mm gap around the edges supposedly because the screen is curved and they will not stick down because of it.
I bought one and it seems ok, i will be looking for one of the new impact resistant ones as with the "Poetic(TM) Atmosphere Case" has no bezel to protect the screen from drop impacts.

wet fit ones will fit the whole screen as they can bend and stick to the curved glass
non-wet apply ones should have a gap , they will cover the screen but not the whole glass , if they don't have the gap they will not stick around the edges and will fill with dust and grime and peel off :-)

Why spend bucks applying screen protector, destroying beauty of our phone and then have it scratched ugly, when it would had barely make anything on gorilla glass 3?
The need for plastic protectors are plain gimmicks today. Lots of smartphone users around me hadn't use them anymore for YEARS and nothing happened, despite the sand myth.
its not like anyone would intentionally rub their screen hard with sand papers

I was carrying a ceramic coffee mug just a while back today and the bottom barely touched my screen putting small scratches in the supposedly impenetrable gorilla glass. Go without a rubber and you know what can happen...

I got the invisible shield zagg one, mainly because it was 2for1 over christmas. So, the installation is a bit weird, but not hugely difficult, it looks like crap to begin with but works itself out. It seems to 'fit' ok, unlike others, but i don't really like the feel of it and the protector itself is very prone to scratches and marks (ironically). I'm not a huge fan but I'm keeping it on because I already had a small scratch on the screen of the 1020 before I put it on

I solved a similar problem using Milante Universal Mirror Screen Protector, bought it from http://www.creekle.com/accessories/s...rotectors.html. It's universal to fit most devices and can be cut to fit the screen of your device.

Always tempered glass screen protector remember one thing, select screen saver and your device screen protected, but not weaken your iphone view and appearance. Needs to be compatible with your tools, able to hold it very well. In a specific period of time the screen protector need to change, but it is better and cheaper screen saver, rather than replaced, replace the screen itself.

Bit of an old thread, but here's my 2 cents for anyone else that comes along...
My wife just got a new 1020, and right away, with a couple of days, was complaining of light, fine scratches on her screen. On the top and bottom quarters of the screen mainly...like you might expect to get from sliding a phone into, and out of a pocket. We were both confused, since I had made a big deal out of the phone having Gorilla Glass 3 and of course the "legendary" Nokia durability. And my wife had been treating the phone very gently...
So, after a bit of reading, here one WPC and elsewhere, it looks like the Gorilla Glass is actually UNDER a layer which is supposed to be anti-glare, or fingerprint/smudge resistant, or super- touch-sensitive, or some combination of those things. And to my fingers, and compared to my ATIV S, and Nexus 5, it feels like plastic, not glass.
So given our experience, I would rate the screen on the 1020 as quite scratchable. A Screen protector is highly-recommended
And having said that, and seeing how many people were having trouble with screen protectors that were too small I suggested that maybe she should get a ZAGG Invisible Shield. They're usually $20 each, but Futureshop had them on for 1/2 price. My wife had one on her iPhone 4s and it went the distance for her, but I never liked it...it kind of gave the screen a matte, dimpled look, and felt a bit sitcky. But they seem to have advanced things a bit and the new one seems smoother looking and more glass-like. She likes it, it looks good, it's the right size, it sucked right into the fine scratches and they are no longer visible at all.
