    I've had my 950 XL since the first day they were released, last year. Since I've had it, it's had a thin plastic screen protector on it. I kind of hate that because it's a layer between my eyes and the phone. So I'm thinking of ditching the film and just going without a screen protector. How well does the screen hold up to scratches for those not using a screen protector? I'm pretty sensitive to even small scratches. Just curious how the phone screen has held up over the past year for those not using a screen guard. I'm less worried about breaks, more worried about scratches. I was glad I had it on a couple months ago, got super glue all over the screen. Just peeled it off and applied a new film.

    The screen possesses Gorilla Glass 4, it can resist scratches from anything that is below Moh's scale hardness of 5. So, that's pretty much everything ranging from knifes, keys, toothpicks, whatever you have in your pocket. Still, glass is brittle and it can shatter if dropped hard enough. The harder something is, the more prone to shattering it is, well, usually.

    Just in case, you should invest in a tempered glass screen protector if you drop your phone a lot.

    For years I never use screen protectors for my phones. Just be a bit careful.

    The 950XL screen rocks. Please look at JerryRigEverything on YouTube.
    However, a grain of sand which is harder than grass, can scratch the screen though.

    Well... I don't fully agree
    The screen of the 950XL (Gorilla glass 4) it's prone to scratch much easier than gorilla glass 3...
    I scratched mine quite easily (superficial scratches)...comparing with the 930 it's less scratch resistant

    If you don't like to have the screen scratched and want to have the color reproduction and the same sensitivity of the screen, I would advice you to put this:

    It's the only tempered glass that won't lift on the corners (the 950xl is not perfectly flat on the corners).
    The glass is 0.2 mm thick and it's 2.5D arc edging craft, which help to protect lifting after some weeks.
