Here’s what I have to say. Day one iPhone X user. Usually I start off my phone without a screen protector and use a pretty minimalist case so I can enjoy the phones early months. But a few weeks ago I noticed a lot of scratches on my phone screen and one small one in the middle. Usually when that happens to my phone that means it’s time for some extra protection as the coating has most likely worn off and the phone is getting weaker. Therefore I went on amazon, purchased a screen protector and once I installed it all the microscratches and even the normal scratch is invisible even under direct sunlight.
So for this one I’d say, you know how you use your phone, whether you want to put one on at first or not is your decision, but once your screen starts scratching it’s absolutely necessary then.
EDIT: about your concerns. I purchased this one on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073DLZWX7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_ZpdqBbT26MWYM It came with an install guide so I had no issues installing it, and at first I was able to see it on my screen, but after a day I guess it settled and it sort of just blends in with my phone now. So as long as you get a tempered glass screen protector and nothing else, the feel should be ok and i haven’t noticed it attract pocket lint.
I bought this one on amazon for $10 and it comes with an alignment tool which is nifty.
I didn’t get it 100% perfect but I think it’s more because I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing...
ok, some people don't like your question. I would suggest doing it yourself. get a protector with an install kit, they make it very easy, and alignment is no longer an issue.
This is the one I got: from amazon
I’ve used two on my iPhone X. I used a Zagg but they crack really easily and are a hassle to return+they’re a rip off.
I found that this one works really well: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073DLZWX7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_RKoGBbWYT0W8Z
I bought it in April and I’ve only used one, had no problems with it. I’m pretty impressed since I usually drop and break them every couple months but this one is strong and doesn’t break from normal drops. Considering you get 3 for $10 it’s a great deal.
Don’t waste money on zagg. You can get the same exact quality and a 3 pack on amazon of glass screen protectors for $10

Yea I hate the bulky cases. it doesn't add much thickness but it covers the edges and keeps the screen off the surface if you lay it face down. Also has slightly raised bumpers on back corners.
Add a screen protector and is fully protected.
I got these and it comes with 3 and an easy install kit so this is like the first time I've ever had no bubbles lol.
I just installed this screen protector: Amazon Link
This was the first tempered glass screen protector that I've ordered which came with a super intuitive guiding system. The protector leaves space around the bezel for a case, which is exactly how I intend to use it. It also doesn't cover the notch. The guiding system was ridiculously easy to use, and I got a perfect fit the first try. Plus, it includes 2 extra protectors, just in case. Highly recommend it, especially at the price I paid.
Coupled it with a Spigen Hybrid Armor and my phone feels well protected now.
ummm...I dont know? haha. I just generally buy cheap ones through amazon - my only screen is an anti-fingerprint coating (which doesnt last forever but w/e).
Literally the determining factor on this one was the fact that the pack included a guide to help get the placement correct (first time I have seen that).
FWIW this is what I got: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073DLZWX7/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I don't put too much thought into the protector. Mainly there to prevent light scratches - I dont expect it to save my phone from certain death. So with that in mind, the cheapo ones tend to do a great job. If it gets busted, no brainer to just slap a new one on.
I got a screen protector from this company for my iPhone 6s https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073DLZWX7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_LszeAbVZFNEQH When I got it they had a lifetime warranty which I used once with no problem but you're gonna have to check for this one. It comes with an install guide you put on your phone which is so easy and it's 3 protectors for 9$. Worth in my eyes. The quality is awesome I dropped it a lot on the screen and not even a crack. The time I broke it was a really serious drop

I got this one for cheap. Works super great and has a frame to place it on straight. Had one and it saved the screen so I got it again.
