When I got my phone I bought a protective case and screen protectors. I ended up messing up most of the cheap screen protectors trying to get it on my phone cleanly and the case was kind of loose so I ended up putting some black tape in the corners to keep it snug. Then eventually the case came off and just recently I took the screen protector off.

I always knew the touch of the protector wasn’t so smooth, but having it off is like having a new phone ’cause it’s all shiny now, the color is better and using it is a lot smoother. The parts of the phone that were exposed before which are the buttons and the edge don’t have any scratches on them at all so I think I’m just going to use it this way from now on (knock on wood).
