You do need a hard cover and an invisible plastic cover over screen.Posted 9 years ago
I was given a mark1 one, it goes everywhere, seidio hard case(ebay), replace plastic screen cover every 3 months or so when keys scratch it up. £15 for case and screens, nothing compared to a busted phone.
I love mine…but it was free 🙂dogtiredandwiredSubscriber
Otter Boxes do some really good ones if you are looking for something seriously rugged. I got mine from Amazon.
The less rugged option (Defender I think it was called) is not too bulky. Waterproof, shock proof and you can still use the touch screen through it.

Invisible Shield is good as it’s helicopter tape and the slightly ‘tacky’ surface makes it easier to hold. Available from Mobilefun.com, I believe. Other than that the ‘Pod socks work pretty well, apart from having to get the phone out of your pocket then out of the sock.Posted 9 years agoflamejobMember

I’m an early adopter so have had mine since day 1; I thought hard about those screen protectors but never did it. My phone has been dropped, kicked, sat on, crashed on and once my earbud got caught in the front wheel of my road bike which pulled my phone out of it’s timbuk2 strap pouch and went sliding accross Hammersmith roundabout on it’s screen. I managed to run out and fetch it before it got crushed by a bus.
It’s 16 months old and still looks fine after never being in a case or screen protector.
I can understand where the screen protector mentality comes from as most phones have plastic screens that scratch easily, but this is glass, you would have to try very hard to scratch it.
Aside from that they make the screen feel all tacky. It was Apple’s experience with the tactility and resilliance of glass that made them use it for the MacBook trackpad.

I have the Switcheasy Rebel one, good, has extra bit to cover the connector, I have to keep this for 18 months (it’ll be the first for me with a phone) so I want it to still look mint when I come to ebay it at the end of the contract!!Posted 9 years agosamuriMember
I thought the screens were actually silicon or boron or something even harder than glass.
Still, I watch videos on mine and it cost me a frigging fortune so I’ll just buy a 5 quid case and keep it in that. The case keeps it all nice and safe and provides a little extra padding, causes me no harm so i’m happy with it.Posted 9 years ago
