Does Your Smartphone Really Need A Screen Protector? by Anegbettedude: 11:40am On Oct 15, 2018
Smartphones are expensive — you wouldn’t want to spend hundreds of cash on one and end up with a scratched screen. Many people still buy screen protectors to protect those screens, but they’ve become less necessary.

Screen protectors were once practically mandatory, but advances in glass and coatings have made them unnecessary for most people. You don’t have to buy a screen protector when you get a new phone.
Screen protectors change the experience of using your smartphone’s touch screen — they may seem softer or more grippy. Placing another sheet of plastic between you and the screen will change how your device’s screen looks, especially if the screen protector discolors over time.This is all assuming you apply the screen protector properly — if you’re not careful, you may end up with bubbles and cracks under your screen protector and you may have to apply a new one.

We can go on and on about the merits and demerits of having a screen protector especially the common ones on but does your phone really need one ?

Most unfortunately, Tecno, Infinix and iTel are yet to make it mandatory to use Gorilla glass for their screens, and any such phones without the protective screen technology would still need a screen guard.

Screen protectors are good but I think tecno now makes stronger phones with strong screens that withstand more pressure, making it harder to crack.

YES THEY DO!!!!
I-phone screen's are so expensive that people who use them don't even bother to fix the screen when it breaks. Don't even get me started on Samsung phone screens as well.
Prevention is better than Cure when it comes to all these luxury phone screens o.

It depends on the user i.e if he/she knows how to manage and maintain things... I don't use screen protector... I've used my present phone for like a year now and I've never used a screen protector on it... it's still looking fresh and new with not even a little crack... Same goes for other devices I use...

Screen protector or not, a phone doomed to break will break but mind you, when properly fixed, you'll not have any hitch

Xiaomi has been on gorilla glass for the past 5years. Look I honestly can't find a reason y ppl still buy craps like techno n infinix, imagine an infinix fone of over 45k has no 4g , my friend felt so used when she found out her new infinix can't even use Airtel 4g.
