does the hero need a screen protector

up until now, i've only had phones with resistive screens. in my experience, these always need screen protectors. do capacitive screens like the one on the hero need a screen protector?

thanks.

Re: does the hero need a screen protector

As a general rule Capacitive screens are harder and not as susceptible to scratches as a Resistive Screen..... especially since you arent using a stylus or any other device than your finger on the screen.

That being said, the hero has a tempered glass screen, and it should be fairly scratch resistant.

Re: does the hero need a screen protector

I'd agree that you should get one. It may not need it but it can't hurt. Not to mention in my expierence with similar screens (iTouch) it makes finger prints easier to wipe off. I know the Hero is supposed to have some crap built in that does that but thats a load of crap the screen is a finger print magnet. I mean you can wipe it offf but it still is very visible. I am looking for accessories right now I will post what I find.

Re: does the hero need a screen protector

haha I think the Hero is actually worse when it comes to finger print smudges.
Anyways, wrapped mine with Invisible Shield by ZAGG. http://www.zagg.com/

They didn't have the full body yet, so I opted for just the screen and will pay the difference later. Finger movements aren't as slick anymore, but it is still very responsive... and well the finger movements wouldnt be slick with a fat scratch in the screen either

Re: does the hero need a screen protector

Ok after a quick search here are 3 of the sites I found. I looked at a few others but it looked like most sites have the same offering as of now, I'm sure better stuff is coming. These had reasonable prices and hopefully the quality is good. I think I will be trying the rubberized case from the first link along with my screen protector. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Glass can still be scratched Even if it is the hard as diamonds "scratch proof" Ipod.

Put the phone in your pocked with your keys and watch the carnage!
