    My 920 is now 5 months old, and I'm thinking of not using screen protector anymore (it's been there since day one). But I take it in and out of my pocket pretty often, so could it be a disaster?

    I used it once but had issues with proximity sensor. No issues here (it depends on how you handle/use your phone ? do you keep your phone with keys in same pocket ? use it with oily hand) . Don't forget when you remove the protector clean the screen every week :)

    It will be fine, but when gravity strikes above a gritty floor, it won't be too pretty. I'd keep the screen protector on. I foregone one from September up to recently, and there were a couple accidents causing significant scratchage (by my standards) but the microscratches were present. I'd keep it on. Unless its gotten ugly.

    Nothing stays in the same pocket, and my hands ain't oily. The screen protector is looking a little shabby now though.
    There has been only one drop so far (and it's not caused by me), and I still clean the screen every week lol.

    No. Don't take the screen protector off your 920. That glass doesn't scratch but the coating over it, does. And from appearances, it looks like any other scratch. If you have it protected, leave it on. If you have a cheap protector, invest in quality protection.

    I've seen a video on pocketnow, after 3 months the screen is almost scratch-free.

    Can't say I don't understand. The protectors get scratched, wrinkled, bubbled, and often just look crappy. I generally hate them.

    But it is better then your screen being scratched, which just looks crappy.

    I vote leave it on. Messed up a lot of screens. Trust me.

    The 920 has a curved screen - the screen protector must be made with the exact dimensions of the screen, otherwise I found that it's difficult to stick it on as it keeps fraying along the edges due to the curve. So when going for a screen protector, make sure to get one from a reputable brand. I got a Nillkin screen protector along with my Nillkin snap case, and I was very happy with it as it is cut perfectly according to the 920's screen size. It was a bit hard to align it correctly at first, but the fit was perfect - don't even know that it's there after applying it.

    Some batches of 920 definitely had bad screens which were prone to easily being scratched, my previous (newly supplied by tmobile) ) 920 mysteriously acquired lots of fine scratches on the screen even though I was very careful about looking after it, when the phone then became faulty I received a new replacement and the screen immediately felt different, it felt much 'slippier' to the finger and 7 months on there isnt a single mark on the screen even though I've treated it exactly the same as my previous 920.
    The screen on my tmobile replacement phone is, without doubt, 'different', and much superior to the previous screen.

    Rubino talked about this as well in one of his blogs. But, if that 3 months and almost scratch free video is enough proof, may the force be with you. I keep a constant vigil over what comes into contact with my phone and somehow, a scratch appeared.

    similar as others here. If you have one on now and it is functional and doesn't look bad (no scratches, bubbles etc) keep it on. I went without a screen protector for more than a year. I dropped the phone once and dented it on the corner (changed housing in the meantime). But it will happen and so it did to mine as well. I have no idea how I got them. The phone must have been sliding over some rough surface someplace and I did not notice. But there were micro scratches in the glass. Not many and now I am using a screen protector that is ultra clear and hard. It almost feels as good as glass. It does leave grease from finger prints more than glass of course.
    But it's good to know it's protected from accidental slips over harsh surfaces etc for now.
    cheers

    Is there a good glossy (non rubber feeling) screen protector that covers the edges of the 920? I currently use the one from xtemeguard and it serves the purpose but the surface has a rubbery texture and feeling to it.

    Took the protector off yesterday. In the next two weeks, if it gets any scratches I'll put a new one back on. Now this is my yolo moment lol

    Dunno too. The previous one I used left the edges open, and doesn't look pretty.

    I had an HTC Desire HD for 2,5 years without a protector and the glass is in pristine condition still. And that didn't even have any special glass like Gorilla Glass.

    I honestly don't know what people do to their smartphones that causes their glass to scratch. I say take the protector off. One of the charms with the Lumias is the amazing curved glass. Just keep it in a pocket of its own, and don't place it face-down on surfaces.

    The one I've from xtremeguard does fit like a glove on the screen, it covers edge to edge, the only problem with it is it has a rubbery texture which doesn't feel smooth sometimes

    If you are rich then take off that screen protector or back cover. If not, then use a screen protector and back cover.

    I had Zagg originally, but removed it because I didn't like the way it feel in my hand.

    On my previous phone, the salesman installed a screen protector on it before it left the store, and when the cheap in-store protector got crappy, I replaced it with a Zagg screen protector. Not long before I was done using that phone, I peeled the screen off my phone, and it opened up my eyes. The screen protector was so gross, and it was amazing how much brighter and more vivid the screen was after I peeled off that disgusting protector. I bought my 920, and I never put a screen protector on it. Now, using it since the day it went on sale on at&t, I have a few superficial scratches on the screen, but that is far more preferable to having the screen protector on it.

    Haven't used one for quite awhile and it hasn't been a problem on my last two phones (1020, Icon). I did get some minor scratches on my 920 screen which were annoying, but the newer phones seem to be more scratch resistant.

    Obviously, you have to treat the phone like it has no protector while doing this. Don't put it in the same pocket as your keys and don't put it face down on uneven surfaces. Be wary of jeans with hard metal buttons near your pocket and always keep the screen facing in so if you bump a doorway or whatever it's not the screen taking the hit.
